Victoria's Secret
I am a size small top and size 26 waist. What size of sweater would I need? XS or S? And for a pant size, would i get a 6??

I haven't ordered from there before and was wondering if sizes are usual or if they run smaller or larger than usual?

Please help!

I'm looking at buying these two items:

pants:


in teal:

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.

Very very few will sell some clothes in the store. It is all almost only available through their catalogs or online. Unless you want to buy some of their abercrombie knockoff Pink clothes.

Could this be turned into a real Victoria's Secret thread?

Lately I have really been loving some of their items. I suppose some consider them to be the poor woman's lingerie store, but they have some nice silk slips...

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 :p

^ 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.

Some of them are so big too! It's going to end up being a department store

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.

I suggest go with whatever is closest to your size. Their stuff is very true to size.

I get all my panties, lingerie, body sprays,bras and pajamas there.

Their body sprays are to die for.

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.

they really should open more shops in Europe... Or at least a Europe-based web-shop!

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).
