i received the asos jacket in the mail today and it fits!
i don't have to be cold any more and be forced to wear cardigans (i have a love/hate relationship with cardis, probably due to wearing them too often to cover up my tattoos rather than out of choice).
this is the second time i buy something from asos modeled by the above woman that i think is going to be big on me and then it hardly fits.
i think she is tiny AND skinny (i'm tiny too, just not skinny so i usually take a 6 or an 8 in tops (c cup) which is the size the models wear in the pics and on which i base my judgement in buying the right size).
nothing wrong with her being that way, just be warned that if you see her modeling something you may want to size up.
i hope ikea and j crew also manage to get my orders here soon...
