Well these jeans are very nice and the style is perfect. My son has just turned 4 and is no bigger than the average 4 year old. Ordered these in a size 5 hoping they would be slightly too big....however they just about fit him. I am making him wear them virtually every day to get my ££$$'s worth! Would be too expensive to return from UK to US. If you are purchasing them I recommend getting 2 sizes bigger. Better too bi than too small.
Pros: stylish good colour and shape
Cons: run too small
I would recommend this to a friend!

Ok ordered the black first, size 9. Great to look at but when trying to get them on the thigh area was sooo tight. There is an unneccessary seam around the thigh which is too tight around the leg (well my leg anyway). The rest of the pant fit perfectly. I thought it could be a size issue and ordered the beige in a size up. Same problem. I'm gonna have to unpick the seam to see if I can rectify the problem :-(
Pros: Quality Fabric, Great Detail
Cons: Poor Fit
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

The leggings look fab on the model...but on me the ruching comes across as messy or even unironed. They are not the most comfortable pants either. The feeling is similar to those wet look style leggings - the skin on my legs seemed trapped and unable to breathe! Hope y'all understand what I'm saying lol. As a UK 14 I ordered a large. I think these are one of those items that really suit some and look ridiculous on others!
Pros: Quality Fabric, Great Detail
Cons: Poor Fit, too much ruching
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

This dress is great! Definately stand out from the crowd in this one. As a UK 14 I ordered a large and it fits perfectly. Material is quite thick and covers up any lumps and bumps! Great for the carnival events coming up.

This is a beautiful dress and quite unusual. I'd say suitable for a summer bbq, or party. Its quite classy when you put it on. I wish I had ordered a size smaller. I'm a UK 14 and ordered a large. The dress is perfectly wearable but probably would've looked even better had it been slightly more fitted. Overall happy with the purchase.

I sooo love this jacket! It fits great. For all you UK girls I am a size 14 and ordered this jacket in large. Fits perfectly. This jacket is very unique and far more than your average denim jacket. Great buy.

The ONE SHOULDER FEATHER SCREEN TOP by Baby Phat features: US sizing Asymmetrical neckline Feather graphic on front with faux crystal embellishment Flutter style sleeve Rouching detail on sides Soft, breathable fabric Model is wearing size Small
 

as this is a US sizing top would the large size be suitable for a UK 14?

Hi. whenever I order from Dr Jays I always order large and its almost always perfect. I too am a size 14. Xx

Don't understand how your sizes relate to English sizing e.g. what is size 20 (English) is it Large??

Cannot order until I know what your sizing means in Equivalent English sizing. That is - 12, 14, 16, 18 20, 22, 24 etc.
Hi there. I have found that I need to order a size large most of the time and I am a UK 14. I guess a size 20 would be about size 2xl or 3xl depending on your personal shape. It may just be me but I feel that US clothing is not as generous as UK as I can sometimes get away with 12UK but never medium US!! Hope this helps xx
