The COS Dresses Sizing Guide
It can seem confusing what size to order a COS dress in, especially because they work in European sizing and don’t even have a US sizing conversion chart. It can be helpful to look at the UK sizing and then turn it into US sizing. See the below images of both COS’s sizing guide and the UK to US sizing chart.
For example, if you are a US size 6, you will be a US size 8. Therefore, you’ll need to choose a size XS (or EU 34) when purchasing a COS dress.

How To Care For Your COS Dresses
Every COS dress’s care instructions will be different because there’s a variety of materials used across the collection. The majority of COS dresses will need to either be hand washed or professionally dry cleaned. We recommend never tumble-drying a COS dress, to maintain its quality and sleek finish. Take extra care when washing wool and cotton as dresses made from these materials could shrink if not washed appropriately.
