Not sure what to think about Reformation sizing? Here are all of my insights!
If you know me, you know that I am a Reformation superfan. Every time I wear one of their dresses or link to their stuff, I get compliments. They are timeless and fun and versatile and excellent quality. But with those compliments, also come DMs asking about Reformation sizing – and I totally understand why! Their website doesn’t have reviews and their sizing can be a little tricky depending on the fabric and style. So I thought I’d put together a post with the available dresses and seperates that I own and my sizing insights. That way, even if you aren’t shopping the exact dress I have, you at least have a reference point to help you figure out what size you need!
If you’ve never heard of Ref, they are a sustainable company that I discovered a few years back. I immediately fell in love with their feminine silhouettes and versatile options – but I became even more of a super fan this summer when they had SO MANY great dresses for my bridal events. Not only are they mindful of sustainability, but their dresses also just fit me exceptionally well. Since I’m petite, I often have trouble finding the right proportions – but I usually don’t even need petite sizing in their dresses. It’s THE BEST.
Reformation Sizing – Dresses
How do their dresses typically run? What size do you usually get?
Their sizing can definitely be a little tricky, but in general, I think that their linen styles run true to size, while their other fabrics can run a little smaller. I will dive into the sizing for each specific dress, but in general, I am usually a size 2 in dresses. I’ll size down if it’s a very blousy dress or if it looks like it runs big. On the other hand, I’ll also size up if it looks very tight in the arms, shoulders, or hips. Same goes for choosing between XS or Small. (For reference, I tend to be an XS/S in tops and size 26/27 jeans at stores like Everlane and Madewell.)
Do they have petite or plus sizes?
Yes! As I mentioned above, I usually don’t even need the petite sizing for some strange reason… which is lovely! If a style is very long or the proportions just aren’t right, it’s nice to know that they offer it sometimes though. They also have extended sizes up to 3X!
