I recently bought DD some of the twin pack Wondersuits from Big W in a size 0. I went to put one on her last night and it swims on her! The 0's I have from DS fit her nicely!
So I measured it against a size 1 I had and they are the same! I bought 3 packets!!!
I don't know if Big W have sold ripoffs or what the story is. When we found out DD was a DD, I bought all sizes in the pink to add to my "collection" and they are all fine. But these are not. The packet said "new design" but they feel thinner and the collars and cuffs are different.
I'm going to complain to Bonds as have washed them so can't return them, but has anyone else found the same??

I used to find bonds sizes were way smaller than other brands... Maybe people kept complaining and now they've changed them... Writing to them can't hurt tho!

Aldi have exactly the same thing for $5.
Bonds quality has gone down hill since they went off shore.
I have bought several bonds items that are just not what they used to be so I stopped buying them.
I refuse to pay for bonds clothing when I can get the same quality or better for half the price. Like BIG W brand or Aldi imports.

i got a double pack of the blue size 1's for ds, and whilst one fits perfectly, the other is way too small.

but seriously, I found in the past that the original bonds suits shrunk a size once they had been washed and dried. maybe they are trying to solve that problem. But yeah they seem more like the dimples brand these days. my DP refuses to buy bonds and really hates it when I do. Either way they are no longer worth that extra money over the cheaper brands.

I've always found you have to go up a size when it comes to Bonds...
