What is in a number? Everything if it is on the label in the back of the dress you are about to buy!

These small but very important numbers are crucial to us in more ways than one. They not only tell us the size of the garment but are also unwittingly have a big effect on our emotions. The smaller the size the better we feel, this is why retailers are making garments more generous and leaving the size the same.

Have you noticed that you can now get into a size smaller in your favourite shop than say 10 years ago but you know that really your waist size is exactly the same. Welcome to the wicked world of vanity sizing.

Vanity sizing is not helpful when you are buying clothes online, you obviously can't try the garment on and although retailers do have a size guide many people don't use these and assume that the size they normally buy will fit. Unfortunately this is not always the case and often garments are returned at great expense due to being the wrong size.

More and more people are finding it easier to shop online for all kinds of goods and now www.ceciliaplum.co.uk can make it easier to shop for clothes and get the right size.

What is my size? You only need to enter your measurements once when you register with us, we tell you the right size to order then browse all your favourite retailers in one place, much easier than having loads of pages open on your computer and much easier when you are shopping from a handheld devise.

Don't worry about security either, once you click on something you like you are directed to the retailers own website so can shop with peace of mind.

Here are just a few of the many UK retailers you can browse on www.ceciliaplum.co.uk ...
