Yesterday I treated myself to a few bargains in town.
I browsed through the ‘last chance to buy’ rail and found two tops I liked. Not checking the sizes, relying on my eye, I took them to the changing room to try on. Both fitted perfectly and I went home very happy having bagged two new tops for the ridiculous price of €5.
When I got home I did the usual removal of the price tags and noticed something rather shocking.
Before I reveal this, take a look at the photo I took of both tops…
Bear in mind I bought these tops in THE SAME SHOP…
One is a size 6 and the other is a size 16.
Can you even guess which is which?
I thought I should share this because I know I am not alone in feeling cheated when it comes to clothes sizing. I am starting to think we should do away with it altogether and do as I did yesterday, rely on our eyes and a mirror to select our clothes. I know… online shopping makes this impossible.
This is a clear reminder not to take whatever number is on the label of your dress or jeans too seriously.
