SHE is one of the most credible and stylish names in fashion but Victoria Beckham’s budget line for Target has one serious issue — the sizes are off.

Beckham’s clothes for US Target have been criticised for not fitting true-to-size, to the point where the retailer has seen “a lot” of returns.

The fit is said to be off for Beckham’s 150-piece, limited edition line, which is only stocked in the United States. (Australian consumers have been buying items off eBay).

New York stylist Sue Kort said she purchased three dresses from Beckham’s budget collection, and when they didn’t fit, she ­returned them to a Target store and “found out she wasn’t alone”, Page Six reports.

“We’ve had a lot of returns, a lot,” the sales assistant told her, according to the New York Post.

“The good thing is instead of a medium, in Victoria’s line I’m an extra small,” Kort told the Post.

But a spokeswoman for US Target said Beckham’s top-selling line had “standard sizing and average returns”.

“We had a great response,” she said in a statement to nypost.com.

Despite the issues with the fit, Victoria Beckham for Target has been well-received by fashion critics and shoppers.

The affordable, mass-produced collection includes dresses (priced from AU$47), skirts and shorts (AU$40), twill pants (AU$40) and shirts (AU$40). Her budget line also includes plus-size clothes, with the total range available in sizes XS — 3XL, and kids’ clothes, influenced “by all the experiences I’ve had as a mother with my children”.

“It’s been designed for women no matter their budget, age or size,” Beckham said, according to The Mirror.

“I want to ­empower women and girls, and make them feel like the best versions of themselves.

“The fact I can offer plus size too is exciting.”

Posh’s Target line is way cheaper than her high-end Victoria Beckham brand, where dresses are priced from AU$2815, silk shirts cost AU$1535 and trousers are AU$1315.

Even the cheapest item in Beckham’s main line — a pair of sunnies — costs AU$546, on UK e-tailer Net-a-Porter.
