  1. Ladies,
    we desperately need such a thread. I thought I would start one based on some of my experiences ( I am a us size 7) as well as those recommendations made by many of you and SAs I have spoken to.

    Please add on if I have missed anything. Additional commentary on sizing would be great as well. One thing to note is that some fabrics make a difference in how much you need to size up for example patent leather tends to require sizing up vs regular leather, however many styles do stretch with wear. Also Louboutin tends to run narrow for wider feet more sizing up may be required.

  2. great thread!

    I found the mad mary, super wallis and rolando true to size.
     
  3. Sounds perfect to me!
    This should be made a sticky!
    :yes:
     
  4. I've heard and read that CLs in suede tend to stretch a bit so you should get true to size, and with patent leather at least 1 size up since they hardly stretch at all. :s
