I am not sure. My original single breasted Bar I took the 36 and had that altered. I personally find Dior sizes vary quite a bit from season to season even for the same classic items. Best to try in person if possible.
Thank you! Out of curiosity, may I please ask what year your original jacket is from? Thanks again!

you should totally get it. :tup: very versatile, went to dinner with it too with a different belt and shoes and still worked. They have another pair of jeans they called them the couture jeans or something like that, and those are my favorite jeans right now! Can’t do the skinny jeans anymore since I earned my Covid-19 pounds… :lol:
Love these jeans! I'm done with skinny jeans, too.

@melisande, I have a larger waist and broader shoulder than normal for my size. I take a chanel 40 RTW jacket, and I agree with @periogirl28 that it is best to try on the Dior RTW Bc sizes vary a lot.
the Dior hooded bar jacket fits my waist n a 42 (but I normally cannot do any non stretchy winter bar jacket bc of the fitted waist). But DH felt the oversized hood swamped me (I’m short and he’s tired of my love of hoods)
i am a 38 Dior hooded dress (elastic waist)
34 Dior sweat pant (elastic waist)
40 Dior palm skirt (elastic waist only; I could have taken a 38)
42 plus (enlarged) fitted waist Dior cotton skirt
40 Dior tie dye jacket
42 plus fitted Dior sleeveless jacket (enlarged)
38 Dior leopard denim jacket (this is the one that @Tasha1 said was way too big for her)
38 all brunello cuchinelli pants
36 Dior Persian lamb coat
I am between a S and a M j’adior t shirt, so I go larger.
MGC used to design for Valentino, for V jacket, I am embarrassed to admit, a size 14.

My newest dior RTW purchase, from a lovely SA in Rome who can pull up all my sizes from NYC
an off the shoulder dress in midnight blue (a cousin to my favorite off the shoulder top in black; oddly the top is called a sleeveless blazer, and both are sized differently). Dior had to let out/reconstruct the size 42 top substantially (three weeks and two fittings) whereas the 42 dress is perfect. I also limited myself to pieces that were not available in NYC. Was going to buy a mesh book tote (the only model with a full size removable pocketed insert in tone on tone oblique (for anyone interested in an insert that can be used in your other book totes), but i didnt want to carry it for the rest of my trip.

NO reason to be embarrassed about a size.. its the look & fit that count..
One of the designers that I favor I wear a 6 & at times can go up to a 12.
Every fabric fits & drapes differently & size reflects that, IMO

Dior sent me the size 42 dress minus the inside button, so when they fixed it, they also sent flowers to the hotel. Not the best pic — DH doesn’t really know how to take an action pic lol (the pic in the closet shows the color better imo
