Hi all :) I've ordered from Dorothy Perkins several times now. As I mentioned in another post, their customer service has been terrible, but that's another story. I'm having a different problem now.... one with sizing. My first two orders consisted of stretchy jersey tops/dresses and one flowy chiffon dress. Everything fit as expected. However, I just received my last order and one of the shirts feels and looks one full size smaller than marked. Thing is..... it's a different style than anything else I've ordered. It's much more fitted with no stretch at all. The buttons down the back are necessary to get in and out of the thing. So, my question is this..... does anyone know whether DP's fitted stuff usually runs small? There are a few fitted shirts on the site now that I would really like, but I don't want to run into this same issue again because sending stuff back to the UK is expensive (and also takes forever to get your money back)

Also.... I would really like to order some belts from them. Anyone know whether the XL truly fits a US 18 comfortably?

Here's the top if anyone is curious. If you plan on ordering this, order a size up (and if you can't, I would suggest leaving it alone)

i teeter between a US14 and a US16 and i usually get their XL belts...and i need to have a hole added as it can be a tad big...so i would think their XL would fit an 18 comfortably :)

for DP fitted stuff...like their form-fitting dresses, i usually size up. i guess it'd be the same for tops?
