Frustrated woman shows difference between same size jeans

Frustrated woman shows difference between same size jeans

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 12:50pm 13th March 2019. (Updated at 2:16pm 13th March 2019)

An irritated woman has posted a viral tweet showing the difference between six pairs of jeans, which are all size 12.

Chloe Martin shared her frustration about high-street shopping sizes in a tweet that many are able to relate to.

The tweet said: 

''In case you’ve ever wondered why women get so frustrated with our clothing sizes - every pair of jeans pictured is a size 12.''

Amongst women, the sizing is quite an issue and just like Chloe, many have encountered similar situations.

Twitter users shared their experiences under the tweet:

''I remember years ago a friend and I bought the same trousers from H&M in the same size. Mine were too big and hers were too small so we swapped! Ridiculous.

''I just want to go shopping and not take the same item to try on in 3 different sizes!''

''I know exactly what you mean, I have clothes in my wardrobe ranging from a size 8 to a 16 - all of which fit me. Cannot figure out what size I am.

''I don't dare to buy any clothes without trying it on - so no internet shopping for me.''

Chloe's tweet has received over 262, 300 likes and others continue to share their frustrating experiences with the high-street retailers.

Chloe told Metro news about the constant problem she faces:

''I’m surprised that a tweet about jeans could reach so many people, but honestly, I feel like women are so sick of being made to feel larger than they are because clothing stores sizes are terrible.

''A lot of high street stores target young women to buy their clothes and they’re giving young women the impression that they need to go up a size when in reality it’s the store’s fault.

''There doesn’t seem to be an ideal size 12 or any other size because from the picture we can all see clearly that they are totally different. There are two pairs of size 12 jeans from Bershka in that picture and they are both different sizes.''
