Hi fats -

Much apologies for a topic that I am sure has already been covered. I can't find any info in the tags about Evans. If you know where past posts are - please lead me there.

I live in the US and I recently saw my fellows fatshionista's post about Beth Ditto. Well the article featured her love of Evans apparently and so now I am intrigued. I normally don't tempt myself with overseas ordering because the shipping costs are killer. After perusing the website there are a LOT of items I love.

My questions are: Is it worth it? What are the quality equivalents in the States? What is the sizing like? As I understand - I am a size bigger in UK sizing right? Do you have favorite items from Evans?

Any info is so appreciated! And again - I'm sorry if all this has been covered. Kindly point me in the right direction and I won't need any responses. :)

I love Evans! Every time I'm in the UK I stock up on clothes there. I think their fabric quality is amazing in most things.. and their designs are so so cute. I really wish they would open up a store in NY!
Their stuff fits me amazingly , better than any of the US plus size stores -- because I am apparently the perfect shape for their clothes.
They say if you are a US 18 you are a UK 22 (size up 2 sizes) but I basically have found that not to be true for me. Their jeans are cut differently from a torrid or LB and I find I actually take the same size or 1 size up.

I would use their detailed size guide http://www.evans.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StaticPageDisplay?storeId=12553&catalogId=20554&identifier=ev1%20size%20guide
and measure yourself!!!!

Thanks for the input. I will check out their size chart and be very careful to order the right size. I do not want to have to return things!

When you say your body type is the perfect shape for their clothes - may I ask what your body type is? I'm bigger than you (a size 24/26), but I'd love to know what kind of body you feel like is suited towards you.

Rather what kind of body you feel like the clothes are suited for. :0

I've been shopping there for the last 4 years and have fluxed in size a lot from a 18-24 . Their clothes have been great in any size I've purchased them in.

It's kind of hard to describe my body type... but I will give it a go. I can't really say apple, pear or whatever.
Double D / D breasts with a waist up high and curves .. but once you hit where i wear my jeans (belly button) I am pretty straight down without many curves.
I wear a yellow in LB right fit jeans if you have tried those before. I have a total white girl european ass (not much of one) .. so most american plus size pants fall off my butt. If I want them to fit my legs/butt I can't close the button! and if I can close the button they are falling off my legs and butt. That is not so in the Evans pants so I would say they are cut for someone with a stomach , smaller butt and avg for their size legs.

As for the shirts... I think they really could fit many people. They have a lot of details like synched waist and ties and things like that to make it conform to your body and just hang off your curves nicely ...
