How old are you and what size(don't answer, don't mean to be rude) My slim 17 yr old loves primark super skinny jeans. Actually she gets lots in there.Vest tops jumpers undies pyjamas jumpers scarves etc. I do the washing and ironing though and can confirm it all washes well. I don't think I have ever had anything from primark that says you can tumbledry. I am 47, and 18/20 so it is a no no for me. hth
Im a 16/18 and the long floaty tops are ok, I've not tried to wedge myself in their jeans yet though, working up the courage to. I like their pjs,dressing gowns and underwear. I got a pair of wedge studded black trainers from their that are brilliant and have worn well.
Jeans are a bit hit and miss imo, tops/blouses need to be checked along all the seams if they are sheer fabric as people aren't always careful with them and they often end up with pulled apart seams. I've generally found dresses to be the most true to size of all the clothes they sell. Try everything on before you buy it, you might find you need to up/down size from your usual size in some of the stuff.
I love Primark, their jammies are great and I love all their tops, the casual ones are really comfy. I've bought some lovely dresses from there too and go there for all my socks and pants. If you're trying on jeans or other trousers take a couple of different sizes in with you as I sometimes find they can be a bit iffy with sizing.
Super soft skinny = higher waisted not on the hips skinny jeans. Pocket t's = almost American apparel t's. £5 polyester trs for work and fan shoes. 28 day refund policy although can't even exchange after that. Go early to. Eat queues avoid at weekends. Fab accessories. Live in tights. £3 ankle leggings.
Try on your size and either side of it. If not in shop then at home. Wash at 30 don't tumble dry then you won't have to throw after 2 wears. I have stuff from 7 years ago.
I find some Primark items wash really well. I have a cardigan that I bought about six years ago and it still looks great. The tees wash well too...and the vests. I will admit the pjs can sometimes look ratty after washing, but I've got expensive pairs that are the same. My sons spongebob pjs still look great after a year and weekly washes. I suppose it's hit and miss.
I have bought quite a few bits and pieces for the kids from there. My ds has some t-shirts from Primark and some from Gap, and the quality is identical, though not the price tag. My dd always has a few things on the go and has had no problem with them. Just as long as you are not going to get all ethical of course.
