Nervous about VS pant sizes

Sunday, June 10, 2012

I ordered VS Pencil Pants last night because they were on clearance ($19.99 is actually a reasonable price for pants, compared to their usual $49.50). But I've never ordered bottoms from Victoria's Secret and have no idea if their sizes run large, small, or true to size. It's making me a bit nervous, as I hate having to deal with returns for online orders.

These are the pair:

Since they are supposed to have a slim fit, I ordered a size up. Keeping my fingers crossed that the pair that arrives will fit... and actually look good on my body type!

Does anyone else have experience with pant sizes from VS? I'll know regardless once the shipment arrives, but I'd like to know what to expect...

    I find they run true to size. But they do run smaller than Old Navy pant sizes.

    I REALLY want to buy from and soooo scared about the size issue too. I think I will wait for a goal celebration. I'm mostly scared of not being super slim for their clothes. These jeans are cute!

    I don't know... and that is the only thing holding me back from buying the same pair of pants since you linked me to them! Ugh, sooooooo cute! I hope they fit you like a glove and you rock 'em girl!

    I just ordered the same pant but in denim, also on clearance. Since I've put on a few pounds (5-7 lbs) in the past few months I edge closer to a size 8 than a 6, but I ordered the 6 and surprisingly they were very flattering and slimming. However twill typically runs with less stretch (but not cut smaller) than the denim counterpart, so the larger size may be the wiser choice. But if stuck between sizes often it's just a matter of losing maybe 5 pounds before the smaller size fits.

Also if you order by phone often the sales rep can tell you a lot about sizing, and usually their advice is right. Good luck!

    I've bought a coat, jacket, and dress from and found that they are true to size/a little big!! I had to return the coat for a smaller size and the dress was stretchy, so it fit me, but I could have probably gotten a size smaller with the dress & still been good. But either way, they have a good return policy!

    Haha, thanks! I rarely buy new jeans/pants and never without trying them on in store first... but unfortunately, Victoria's Secret stores don't carry most of the clothes they offer online!
