I am tempted to buy some clothes online at the moment but was wondering about sizes in pumpkin patch maternity wear. They only have s,m,l and xl. Does anyone know what this translates to i.e. 12,14,16 etc.

They have generous sizes. I am and 18 on bottom, 16 on top, and have both L and XL (L tops and dressesl XL jeans). XL tops swim on me, but I have very small boobs.

I am not answering your question but the one thing I would say I found with Pumpkin Patch clothing was that I had to go down a size  biggrin.gif    I am normally a small but I had to get an extra small (that was in pants).

I found their sizing very generous. I am normally a 12 but would be best in a small from pp I think. They are very long in length too, a tried a maxi dress but even at 5'6 it was way, way too long.

Thanks ladies! I'm normally a 14 but have crept up to a 16 if I want to be comfortable so I might get a large?

Nope, medium. I have enormous boobs, and sometimes need a 16 top to go around them, but otherwise a 14. Their large swims on me. Unless it was a button through top which gaped on my boobs, I used PP size medium, and they were still roomy.

I'm around 12 on the bottom, and even their mediums were sometimes too big.

The only exception was maternity jeans - maybe it was the cut but they were always too long and too wide, but the belly band wasn't big enough for my bump. (Maybe it's me and my short dumpy legs, but I can find other jeans to fit usually!) Got Target mat jeans instead and they were great.
