As I mentioned in my previous post, most international brands in Hong Kong do not import size above 14, e.g.French Connection. Especially if they are licensed under the local fashion group I.T.
I am glad that it is not the case for Topshop, and I certainly am hoping for the day when Dorothy Perkins comes into the China market.
I have already visited the shop myself and I am glad to know that they do carry size 16, although only 1 pc or 2 per style. It’s pretty enough for now until the word is spread! I have also spoken to their staff and realised that they have discontinued size 18 from a long time ago. Perhaps the last time I saw it was 2-4 yrs ago in London!
Here is a photo of me trying out some of their fashion piece in the shop. I’d say they run quite true to the UK size. I am wearing a pair of 34 inch waist denim shorts and a size 14 crop top.
