Anyone know anything about Zara sizing?

I'm thinking of bidding on a Zara leather biker jacket on eBay. It's a size large, and no measurements are given. I'm 5'9" and a 38C. (I guess that means a 40" chest, right?) I wear a 14, sometimes 12, on top. I wear a size 8 on the bottom. I looked at other Zara jacket listings, and they were inconsistent. Some had XL jackets listed as having 46" (!) chests. Others had size L jackets with 36" chests. I e-mailed the person with the listing (in Spain) but have not yet heard back.

I guess what I'm asking is, do you think there's any chance in hell that this jacket may fit me?

Thank you!

Hi there Natasha. I normally buy a lot of Zara clothes and am normally a size 6 US/10 UK and wear Large in the TRF(younger collection) and Medium in tops from the normal Zara collection.

I also more often than not have to buy Large in Zara coats as I find they are tight around the arm area.

Hope that helps!!!!!!!

Yes, that does help! I'm not going for it. Dammit! The bid is almost over and it costs about a dollar + change!

Ta!

hmm so it seems TRF at Zara runs smaller than the rest of the Zara collections?

I am usually a 36 in Chanel RTW and a US 2-4...so I guess I should do a medium in TRF and a Small in Zara pieces?

and has anyone had experiences with the TRF pieces vs. regular Zara pieces?

i'm a fairly newbie to Zara, i just own the leather fringe tank dress Mira wore and i got that in an XS cos the ebay seller said it was running pretty comfy sized and it fits me perfectly...but i think that piece may have just been more on the loose end than other items especially ones with sleeves or armholes (like on jackets and long sleeve tops etc)...
