Everything You Need to Know About Mango’s Sizing

Does the brand's sizing run big or small?

If you’re shopping at Mango for the first time in a while and don’t have the chance to pop to the shop to try something on IRL, it’s always handy to have a look at what people are saying about the brand’s sizing online.

I’m a big, big fan of the brand. After forgetting about it for a few years, I fell in love with it again in 2021 and now it’s one of my go-tos.

Their new in section is bursting with affordable yet super stylish pieces, and have you seen those Gucci slingback dupes? Ob-sessed.

Their sizing can be confusing though. I recently bought a checkerboard top in size M that feels tiny, while other size M pieces are huge on me. So what gives?

Now I’ve become a regular shopper at Mango, I’ve learnt more about how best to shop for the right sizes.

Of course, it’s always better to try before you buy or to buy a couple of sizes if you’re shopping online. It can be expensive to do though, as well as time consuming.

Does Mango’s sizing come up small?

In a word, yes – but it depends on what you’re buying.

When it comes to tops that are supposed to be tight-fitting, such as roll neck tops, it’s definitely worth going into the store and trying them on. As I’ve said, some tops can feel way too big, while others are super tight.

Dresses are generally true to size and I’ve had no issues, while outerwear is usually on the smaller side.

I find Mango’s skirts on the small side in terms of length, but they usually fit around the waist correctly.

Some brands have a review section of their items, where customers can rate items on their fit and quality but sadly Mango isn’t one of them.

Zara vs Mango sizes

Zara has often been called out for its sizes running small. Compared to Zara, Mango definitely fits better in my personal opinion, but they’re pretty similar.

I know it’s not ideal, but as I’ve said before I really recommend trying before you buy to avoid this being an issue.

What size do Mango models wear?

Mango doesn’t state what sizes their models wear, so any suggestions would be guess work.

While it could be assumed they’re wearing size small, items are often clipped to look as good as possible.

Do Mango coats run big or small?

It’s always a good idea to buy bigger sizes in outerwear at Mango, but also from any brand.

Usually you’ll want to layer knits under your coats, so it’s good to have room under your coat to do so.

What about jumpers?

Mango’s jumpers run quite small according to Mumsnet users. They recommend sizing up.

What is size M in Mango?

Size M is measured as 36.22in on the bust, 28.35in on the waist and 39.37in on the hips.

You can see the exact measurements of all the sizes on Mango’s size guide, as well as a guide for how to measure yourself.
