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. :)

In my experience, I'd say the clothes are about the same quality as Lane Bryant, that is to say, a bit over priced for what you get. I do have a really cute shrug from them, but I'd say the majority of the clothes from Evans are also about the same stylish wise as Lane Bryant, which is to say, not so much. When I was in the brick and mortar stores in London in January, I didn't even find anything I wanted to try on.

That said, I really liked their shoes. I had a great pair of wide calf boots from them once, that I eventually had to give up because they really were a bit too big in the foot. I'd buy more shoes from them, but there doesn't seem to be a perfect consistency to their sizes. In some styles I took a seven and some I took an eight.

I've never placed an order on their website. Most of my Evans purchases have been in store, by a friday sales post or eBay. I'm not sure I'd think it worthwhile to order from the website, but you can sometimes get a great deal on eBay.
