Bloody Zara

I tried on a jacket in store, size medium - too small. So I ordered a large, which arrived today - STILL too small. I'm a size 10 (normally, although occasionally a 12) and the large still doesn't fit. Wtf is going on? Do other people find their clothes are made for teeny-tiny people?

Rant over.

Yes! I bought a short sleeved blouse from there size medium. I could barely get my arms through the sleeves and my upper arms are twig like.

Maybe they've mislabelled those jackets / meant to be v tight? Size 10 shouldn't be large / extra large! It's usually small/ medium.

I tried a XL jacket in there last weekend and couldn't do it up. I'm a 12. Ridiculous.

I've noticed that Zara has trouble making clothes for women who have breasts.

Their sizes are hugely variable.

I have a pair of their size 6 jeans which are huge and a size 8 pair that are tiny.

Have an xs small coat that fits perfectly and have tried other xs on and been unable to breathe.

It is one shop where you really do need to try on.

The thing is, like MrsCB, most of the Zara things I own are size small, tops and all, so it's just so bloody inconsistent.

Sproo absolutely. I always go in and think "maybe it will be a good week". Ha. Maybe. One day.

I have one dress from there that was £19.99. I nearly bought it in every colour, but talked myself out of it and only bought the dark plummy purple. It's my go-to early evening drinks dress and possibly the only thing from there that will ever fit my top half in. Grr.
