NA-KD is the new kid on the block. The retailer seems to have popped up out of no where, but has quickly become one of Europe’s fastest growing companies – so it goes without saying that they’re doing something right.
One look at the brand’s website and it’s clear to see the appeal. If I had to sum it up in one word, I’d say the aesthetic is effortless.
With new pieces dropping every week, you’re never short of options. The brand also does regular collaborations with influencers on unique collections, while its affordability swings it for many shoppers.
But we all know it’s all about the fit. Finding the perfect fit matters, and if we’re being honest, not every high-street brand is consistent when it comes to sizing. We all remember when H&M was forced to change their sizing after receiving countless complaints.
No one wants to be stuck with the wrong size and go through the hassle of returns, but it can also be expensive.
So how does NA-KD measure up (or down)? I’ve read through customer reviews and forums to find some answers to help you.
You can follow our advice if you’d rather avoid buying the same item twice. Keep scrolling for what you need to know about NA-KD’s sizing.
Does NA-KD’s sizing come up small?
There are mixed reviews about NA-KD’s sizing; some people say their products are pretty true to size, while others have to get two sizes up just to get the right fit.
Dresses are a hit or miss; you might have to size up depending on your chosen style. Some are too large, and others are too tight. It’s the same for their tops—especially cropped tops—and blouses.
I know this isn’t necessarily very helpful, but I find shopping from a brand once helps you to get an idea of their sizing for future reference. If you don’t want to be without an item, you could try buying two sizes.
It’s also worth mentioning that NA-KD stock other brands, and their sizes are totally separate to NA-KD’s own-brand pieces.
Surprisingly, there have been reviews about some of their jeans being on the bigger side. While their trousers run small.
However, people do agree on one thing: they have good quality clothes. You just need to compromise on the sizes, which means going up or sizing down.
What size do NA-KD models wear?
Like most retail brands, NA-KD doesn’t disclose their models’ sizes. But even if they did, this isn’t always a good way to gauge how it would fit on you. It’s well known that stylists often clip products to ensure they look their best.
Do NA-KD coats run big or small?
It looks like there is no consistency with sizing, but a lot of people have reported that their coats do run on the bigger side.
An oversized coat is not a bad thing, especially during winter. Speaking from experience, I always want to layer mine with a jumper or cardigan to keep cosy so having outerwear that’s too tight is always a no no for me.
Other outerwear like their jackets and blazers are said to come up shorter and tighter, so it’s a good idea to size up for those.
