What size is equivalent to a woman’s US 14? I ordered this jacket last week and received a  size 18xxl. It’s way to big and I’m returning it but annoyed I had to pay for return postage. The women’s updated size guide doesn’t come up on the website.

Asked by: Zeppo
A US 14 is about equivalent to a NZ/AU 18. Apologies for the sizing chart not being available, the web team have now fixed this glitch. Please feel free to contact Customer Services if you would like exact measurements of a size.

How do I wash this jacket?

Asked by: im1920
1. Machine-wash your down jacket on a gentle cycle at 30 degrees °C. 2. Carefully remove your down jacket and lay flat to dry on a clothing rack. 3. Put it in the tumble drier on a low heat. 4. Throw in two to three tennis balls, or Granger’s drying balls. 5. Gently fluff up the down jacket. For more information including a video on how to properly care for your down jacket, please use the search bar to look up the "How to wash a down jacket" article.
