Melissa McCarthy cloths sizing
Hello…does anyone know how Melissa’s sizing runs?? They said one of the models had a size 10 on and she looked like a 2 too me.. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!!
Great question, and one I’d also like an answer to! I’ve only ordered one of her items- a printed ‘midi’ length pencil skirt. It IS rather expensive for what it is, but it looked lovely on air, so I took a chance. I’m very confused about her sizing, or at least, how/why HSN separates the ‘missy’ sizes from the ‘plus’ sizes, right down to the item numbers, and since it completely sold out, I can’t even find the reviews for the garment (missy # 462-713…it’s available in 3X only at the time I’m writing this, and under a different item number..no help to the consumer who isn’t ‘plus’ size, as the garment measurements are only listed 1X-3X!). The smallest size in the brand is (other than numeric) is ‘Small’, and I checked the ‘garment measurements’ prior to ordering. I normally wear an extra small or small at HSN, and the Melissa McCarthy ‘small’ was in the ballpark, figuring that I would wear it high-waisted, likely with a wide belt. It arrived, and if this thing wasn’t a factory defect/mismarked, then I will not be ordering from her line ever again. It’s tag says ‘S’…but the waist is 36 inches, the hips are 42 inches, and I could fit a second person in it with me…HSN (is happy to take it back, and waived the return shipping) has no way of exchanging the garment, since it’s sold-out in ‘missy’ sizes, so I have NO CLUE what went wrong, NO WAY of knowing if it is a defect (I suspect it is…this is NOT a typical measurement for a size ‘small’ in ANY brand I’m familiar with…HSN or otherwise) but HSN makes it difficult when they remove the reviews after an item sell out…I am at a loss with this brand, which is too bad, because I like what I see, but since it is my first purchase! I can’t order with any confidence moving forward.
I am 5’5 160 with a 36dd. I wear a medium in her tops and a size 8 in jeans.
For what it’s worth, I am in-between 2X and 3X here. Mostly 3X. In Melissa’s blouse, 2X worked better for me.
Fabulous stuff. It is ridiculous how much I love the few things I got from her line. Exactly as she advertises- hangs down, does not much flair out and super flattering for my gigantur apple-shaped stomach.
Hi, i do not own any of her clothing, most of them sold out last time. I look at the sizing chart and would go from there. If you like something and it does not fit, call HSN as soon as possible and they will send the exchange right away! :cathappy:
$108.00 for a kimono!!! Are you kidding me! I just turned on HSN, saw the model wearing this kimono and thought she was dressed in a robe for hospital – awful and way too expensive. Pass.
For the Boot cut Jean, Colleen just stated that if you are a 14, order a 14. It’s true to size. I’m not sure myself but I would order up a size if I would to order them. Unless there is a coupon out there, I can’t spend $89 for one pair of jeans.
