Does Victoria's Secret clothing run true to size?

In these days of vanity sizing, does VS clothing run TTS? I've been looking at some of their pants and tops but I'm concerned that the sizing will be all over the place.

Has anyone ordered from them for clothing?

Not TTS. I have noticed their stuff is running bigger these days.

I think they run a little small in the waist and big in the boobs and hips. So, if you are shaped like a barbie doll, you should be able to order your smallest size

i've always had problems with their tops/sweaters being too big on me, plus they always seem too short and i don't have a particularly long torso

I order from them quite a bit, sometimes the sweaters can be too short...otherwise all their size Mediums have worked for me. But find that sizing for jeans and pants can be all over the place. I wear a 29 or 30 depending on measurements, and I just bought a pair of Marisa Fit Stretch Cargo Chinos in a size 8 that I really like. Awhile ago, however, I bought a pair of butt lifting type jeans in a size 8 and I couldn't even get them up my hips.....

I think it's inconsistent. I'm wearing a VS sweater in an XS that's fine but I just ordered one in a M that's too tight. I have pink hoodies in everything from S to L. A lot of their stuff is cute and generally cheap too so I really wish it was sized better I usually only buy VS when it's on sale cheap enough that I can resell and get my money back because so many times it doesn't work out. I wish they let you return to the stores

They don't let you return online purchases to their stores? I thought you could?

Nope. You have to mail them back at your cost.

VS is basically Express clothes.
They will fit about the same.

I've found VS stuff to run enormous and, like many have said, wide and short.
