The sizes from VS are pretty true to size.. but just to make sure I'd take a tape measure and measure your bust and yoru waist and hips just to make sure. If the pants are stretch, then there's a little give there, too.
...and I will be strong even when it all goes wrong.
I love VS they don't take themselves too seriously. I've gotten so many fun bras there. They've got to stop adding more lines and doodads though I have enough of a problem in there as it is w/o extra sparkly sprays and tops and towels etc
^ VS has been driving me crazy lately, and it's funny that you mention all of the lines... after Pink went popular I thought it was bad, but now it seems they have so much going on and should focus a bit more.
Is it just me who's annoyed by their website? For a website that sells a lot of clothing, it's SUPER hard to see the clothes decently through big pictures or zoom, or countless of other options which VS DON'T have. I just find it hard to shop that way. And they do have so much awesome stuff.
Almost everybody knows of Victoria's Secret for lingerie. However, not many know Victoria's Secret for fun and fashionable casual clothing (or at least you don't hear it mentioned in this light). You may occassionally see a lot of clothes from Victoria's Secret's Pink line, but they actually have some nice jeans, stylish office-type clothing, and some really feminine fashions. I've seen a few Victoria's Secret catalogs and think they offer a broad variety of casual and sophisticated clothing. Their clothing lines are diverse and lovely.
I was going to ask if Victoria's Secret was a British company... only that (thanks to Wikipedia) it's an American company. Always thought this was a British retailer (maybe from the British announcer of the VS commercials).
