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'm with you on this, I always have a look round the shop when I pass it, but I havent found anything I would even consider wearing for years.
Its all cut to fit an apple shape and the lengths vary with no warning! One tshirt I tried on was hovering around my belly button, and another in the same size AND STYLE just a different colour was halfway down my thighs. What gives?
And as for quality, its appalling for what they charge.
A few years back I got a nice evening dress from them. It didnt even last as far as the pub before the (knee length, so it wasnt even me catching on it) hem came down. Later in the evening one of the spaghetti straps decided to fall off too.
The shoes fall apart after a couple wearings too.
I just dont get it when people say this shop is brilliant! Its the worst I've ever seen, on every count.
