    When asking for sizing advice in this thread, please include AS MUCH INFORMATION as possible,
    so we can better help you.


    Some info that could help us help you:
    • Your US size in non-CL brand shoes (Nine West, Aldo etc.)
    • Width of feet (narrow, average, or wide)
    • What CL’s you already have (or have tried on) and what size they are
    • The style you are asking about and what season it is from. This is helpful because the sizing changed for CLs in 2009.
    • Please include a pic or link if you’re unsure of the style name."


    In this guide, True to Size (TTS) means that it is the same as your US size. So a US 7 = 37 in a TTS CL shoe. HOWEVER, you may need to make adjustments if you have wider feet and/or if you are in the larger size range. In general, sizing for those in the smaller size range (abbrev. SSR; about 36.5 and under) is more TTS than sizing for those in the larger size range (about 38.5 and above). Further, CL sizing has recently changed, and certain styles (e.g., Ron Ron, VP) are running more TTS or even large when compared to before.

    Here is a decently up to date list, in alphabetical order, of the size you should order for your CLs. This sizing is subjective and generally the consensus of most people in here but not everyone's feet are the same. The best way to get sizing advice is to go to a boutique or store and try CLs on. When that is not possible, the ladies here will do everything they can to help you with sizing advice!

    Remember that this is a guide, and no two feet are the same. CL sizing depends on many factors, including width of feet, length of toes, smaller or larger size range, material, and personal preference (e.g., some prefer to buy shoes tight and stretch to fit, while others prefer to buy them looser and pad to fit).

    It is completely normal for shoes to feel tight at first, especially in the toebox. For the most part, CL’s WILL stretch and break in with wear, but you may also try the sock trick or bring them to a cobbler to be professionally stretched. Please do a search for more stretching/comfort advice.

    We also have a thread for insole measurements, found here:

    Here is a Google Docs spreadsheet where you can enter your own info as well:

  2. Following on from the old thread ..

    mimi - lol , at least this time we'll know which size fits more better on your feet .when you do get them , which ever size you choose in the end + 1/2 size to figure out your old VP size :smile:

    misslol - it will be too small .1/2 - full size up for rolandos 37.5 - 38

    jmwarner - no they will be too small , sorry!
     
  3. This is key information in knowing my actual size! I hope I end up fitting the 38.5 in the New VP (which means I'm truly a 39 in old VP), so I will always have the same sizing as you!!!

    You truly are an awesome resource! I (and we at tpf) would be lost without you. Thank you for all that you do!!!
     

  4. lol awww :hugs: I actually take 38.5 in old vp lol , you're just teeny bit bigger than me BUT YAYYYYYYYYYYY now we found your proper size :yahoo:
     
  5. Your US size in non-CL brand shoes 6
    • Width of feet average
    • What CL’s you already have (or have tried on) and what size they are:
    Own: MBB 36
    Tried on: Altadama, Very Prive, Bianca, Lady Peep, Studio 36
    • The style you are asking about and what season it is from
    Luly and Rosella (flats) 2009-2010 (not sure of season)
     
  6. From my middle(longest) toe to heel measures 23.2 cms. I have a slim foot.

    In Declic's im a size 35.5..with heel height of 140 but could do a 35.

    Tried on size 35 in studded pigalle 100 in kid leather which where tight in toe box but stretchable

    Tried on pigalle 34.5 120 patent tight in toe box - no heel slippage

    Lola 100...size 36 snug in toe box but livable..
    tried on Lady page size 36 kinda tight in toe box but livable with it
    tried on Lady page size 36.5 heel slippage but toe box comfy.

    Fastissma...which size do you think i should take? (cl website recommend half size up)


    Thank you. :flowers:
     
  7. Good Morning Experts!
    I think I just found my new love :heart: I saw Gywneth Paltrow's pic on the celebrities thread and I think I need the Loubouts in my life! Any idea on how the fit?
    These are my CL sizes right now:
    New Vp: 6.5
    No. Prive: 7
    Bianca: 6
    RonRon:6.5

    Also, does anybody know if they are comfy or killers? (don't want them to be like the laponos, that was a sad-sad experience :p)
    Thanks a lot in advance :balloon:

    Hi ladies!
    I would love some confirmation on the patent Peacock Biancas as I'm trying to get the right size for me.
    I am usually 38 in my non-CL shoes (Burberry, MJ, Ferragamo)
    My patent simples (with thick heel) are 38
    Decollete 38
    I have quite narrow (to average) and skinny feet (bony with not much meat on my foot :sweatdrop: )
    I heard (and per guide above) these run large so Should I get 37 or 37.5? I was just told by a SA 30mins ago that these run SMALL so now I am confused! :sad:
    Thank you so much!
    :heart:
     
  9. :bump: from previous thread:

    • Your US size in non-CL brand shoes: 7 in Jessica Simpson, 7.5 in Coach
    • Width of feet: average
    • What CL’s you already have (or have tried on) and what size they are: Old Simple 38, Luly 37.5, Yoyo Zeppa Sling 38
    • The style you are asking about and what season it is from: Mikamia, not sure about the season

    Would a 37.5 fit?
     
  10. not an expert but these def run LARGE... if your feet are narrow, then you might want to go a full size down. good luck!
     
  11. these def run big. i tried these on and 1/2 down was best, though a lot of ladies went full size down. (i like lots of toe room in closed toe shoes, though!)
     
  12. Thank you ladies for all your input! :love:

    Though I am wondering is the sizing the same for Bianca PEACOCK - so the PATENT ones?

    I just spoke to a SA and he told me to SIZE UP and "In his experience the Biancas run small and almost everyone i sold them to went up in size I asked my manager and he agreed with me. I would tell you to purchase at least a 38.5 or 38."

    The dept store near me doesn't stock Bianca I'm afraid so can't try :sad:
    Pleeeease help!
    :heart:
     
  13. sassysarah has the peacock pair, perhaps pm her?
     
  14. ^^ yep! Have just PM'd her. Thanks for the heads up :biggrin:
    Ohh this is so frustrating.. I THOUGHT I had it all planned out and now I am thrown off track by conflicting sizing advice.. Yikes! :push:
    I am so sad I missed out on the ones on Bluefly :crybaby:
    And Net-a-porter is sold out... *sigh*
     
  15. ^^ I pm'd you back. I found mine at the Madison boutique. Saks in Atlanta also had them last month PM me for SA info. Sorry but it doesn't seem your SA knows what he's talking about IMO.
