First Pair of Flats,Size Question.......

  1. Just got my first pair of BV flats (from the website) they were on sale, love them. But I had to go up to a size 9. I usually wear an 8. Had to go up a size for Chanel and Prada as well, but Chloe an 8 fit me fine. I wonder why it is that some designers have such a variance in the so called "same size", the cut is not that different. Anyone else have this happen to them?
  2. The difference is in the sizing between designers.

    French Designers usually run smaller than general European sizing.

    Example - I wear a US size 10 - I wear a Chloe size 40, and a 41 in BV, Louboutin, and Zanotti's.

    Hope that made sense! :smile:
  3. Oh yes, it's happened. I need at least a 10 in BV because they are "Italian sizing". I have some Tod's in size 9.5, and Cole Haans in 9, 9.5, and 10. In NM charlotte, I tried on some Pradas in 9.5 (only pair) and they were too tight--the salesman actually got mad when I didn't buy them because he said they fit perfectly!

    I wish they were more standardized.
