Size Question for Iman Jeans
I am not sure what size to order for the TS today. In brick and mortar stores I wear a size 8 in jeans, and a medium in tops and jackets. I have purchased some of Iman’s jackets and a small fits me. I don’t know what size to order in the jeans. When I order DG2, most of the time I wear a 4. Do Iman’s jeans run brick and mortar, or vanity sized? Dying to try these!
I went by the size chart but my hips are about 2 inches larger than the size ordered, but it was ok, they fit fine, it was the waist I wanted to get right, so thats how I did it. They look Nice, not like jeans though.
Ok, got my order yesterday. I ordered gray and classic denim in the skinny in a size 6 short. The first pair I tried on were the gray, and they fit perfectly and I absolutely love the way they feel (so comfortable!), perfect rise for me, and they really do make my middle (where I carry extra weight) look so much thinner, I couldn’t believe it! They only thing that I didn’t like was the fabric was really shiney and didn’t look like denim – but if you feel it, you can tell that it is. I think I’m going to keep them anyway, for the above reasons. I was so excited that when I put in my measurements that they selected the correct size for me. Then I tried on the other pair…..
When I got them out of the package I was thrilled that the fabric looked like denim and did not have that shiney fabric that the gray were made in, and couldn’t wait to wear them! When I put them on, they fit me like clown pants, I am not kidding. Have you ever seen a clown with huge baggy pants around the hip area that got smaller and tighter around the ankle? That was them. These were supposed to be the SAME size as the gray that fit me perfectly. I was so disapointed, especially since the next two sizes down are sold out. I think HSN should give me the sale price when these come back in, because it was THEM who chose the size for me.
So… looks like the same sizing problems with Iman that we have with DG2.
More on HSN sizing advice: Based on my measurements, HSN suggested that I order a size large in the tops. I have a couple of Iman jackets, and a size small fits me in those, so I went ahead and ordered a small in a couple of the tops and also a medium in case they ran small based on HSN’s advice. The medium swallows me and the small fits great.
If I shop at a brick and mortar store I wear a size 8 or a medium in most clothes, so for me these are vanity sized (which I like), and I am further convinced not to trust the measurements or size advice that HSN supplies, and to expect inconsistancy with sizing.
I too am puzzled. I wear a XL in her slip into slim pants and now I do not know what size to order in this new numbered size. HSN people: are you out there? Help?
They also don’t have the rise listed and that’s really important for me as I need a shorter rise since I’m short torsoed. The model’s and Iman are all really tall with long torsos so I’m guessing the rise would be way too high for me so I’m not even taking the chance on ordering.
It would be Big Help if they Told The Size That a couple of the Models are Wearing!
But they have better things to do and to talk about than That – I guess.
I ordered a size up – But I might cancel it all out!
I put my measurements in and HSN recommended a size 6. Hope they are right.
