I have bought John Rocha clothing because of its accurate sizing. I have several pairs of jeans size 16 regular. However, I have just purchased a pair of Elsa jeans at Debenhams in Meadowhall my usual size. They do not go anywhere near my at the waist or hips. I have compared them to last year's John Rocha jeans and find they are a total of 3 inches smaller at the waist and hips!!!! Unfortunately I will have to take them back which will cost me £5 in petrol as I do not live near to a store. I won't dare buy any more. I didn't try them on because size 16 fits me 99 per cent of the time.
