How do Sundance Catalog clothing sizes run?
posted by Colleen Shirazi on Tuesday, July 6, 2010 at 12:01 AM (Pacific)

Sometimes it's easy to forget there are only two b & m Sundance stores, and a solitary Sundance outlet. Naturally, I'm jealous of anyone who lives within driving distance of the outlet, but I can be at one of the stores within half an hour.

The clothing generally runs between true to size, and large. It's a bit bigger than J.Crew. I'm not sure I've ever worn a medium top at 'Crew...the exception which springs to mind is this hellish sweater (scroll down). Normally I grab a large, and even went X-large with the J.Crew Jackie cardigans. For Sundance I might qualify for a medium or large, depending on the top.

Skirt-wise, it's more similar imo. If you wear an 8 at J.Crew (sorry for harping on the 'Crew comparison, but at least it's coast-to-coast), you could do 8 at Sundance.

I've never tried on a Sundance dress, to the best of my recollection. The dresses always seem to arrive pokily to the store.

Sundance clothes are expensive overall, but I have been happily washing and wearing my Sundance items. The Carnegie skirt:

...I got late 2008 has been a staple over the past two winters--it's nice and soft and warm, and olive green (yay!); can be dried in the dryer if need be (we have a rainy season once it gets cold). It's shown little sign of wear. If they could come up with other colors in this skirt...coughs
