Woman's Post About H&M's Ridiculous Sizing Goes Viral

Question: Is there literally anything worse in the entire universe than going to a clothes store to try on items and the sizes are all f*cked up?

Answer: NO!


It really grinds my gears.

Lowri Byrne, from Swansea, feels my pain.

She took to Facebook a few day ago to alert H&M after she struggled to fit into a size 16 of one of their dresses - when she usually buys a size 12.

She wrote:

Please sort your sizes out because this is absolutely ridiculous.

I'm a size 12 and small busted, and today in an H&M store I had to ask if this dress came in a size 18 (it didn't). The dress I have on in these photos is a size 16, and I could barely breathe.

Not only was this annoying because I wanted to buy this dress, but so many women take what size dress they buy to heart.

If I was one of these girls (thankfully I'm not) requesting a size 18 dress would seriously devastate me.



She added:

When I asked if this dress came in a size 18 the store assistant said: 'Ah yeah, you have to go up a couple of sizes with these'. A couple! Going up three to four sizes surely should make you realise that you need to seriously sort out sizing.

Sort it out, guys.
