Woman In Disbelief As Size 12 Zara Jeans Are Smaller Than An ASOS Size 8

Woman In Disbelief As Size 12 Zara Jeans Are Smaller Than An ASOS Size 8

In case you needed a reminder that dress sizes are a myth, one Instagrammer has shared pictures proving just how much they can vary from shop to shop.

Posting a picture of herself in jeans from multiple fashion brands, blogger Becki, who runs @the_rebeccaedit, demonstrated that one size certainly doesn't fit all.

She posed in a blue size 12 pair of jeans from Zara, a size 8 pair of white jeans from ASOS and a size 10 pair of black jeans from Topshop.

So, yeah, that number on your jeans is pointless, FYI.

As she shared a picture of the three jeans stacked up against each other - with the size 8 ASOS jeans visibly bigger than the size 12 Zara option - Rebecca wrote: "CLOTHES ARE MADE TO FIT YOUR BODY, NEVER CHANGE YOUR BODY TO FIT THE CLOTHES!"

Voicing her shock at just how much the three brands' sizing differed, she added: "Sizing. Specifically high street sizing. I have no words. These photos feature jeans in a size 8, a size 10 and a size 12.

"Now if you've seen my stories today you can probably guess which is which but the point I'm trying to make is this: sizing is not an exact science (especially in fast fashion) and you absolutely cannot attach your self-worth to the number on the label because you're setting yourself up to fail! I mean, look!!!"

She continued: "The white jeans are a size 8 - a little snug yes, but on. The black ones are a size 10, roomy, comfortable and make me feel great. The blue ones, the ones that I couldn't even get over my [bum] are a size 12. Is there any wonder no one knows what size they are?!

"This to me is madness and if I wasn't as comfortable in my own body and my own skin as I am, these jeans would make me feel rubbish, worthless, fat and the list goes on. But I am begging you all, PLEASE do not let the clothes define how you feel about yourself.

TikToker Hilariously Warns Other Shoppers About Zara Trousers That Will "Make You Fart"

"You are more than a size label. You are more than those jeans that don't quite fit right. And if something doesn't fit you please remember that there is NOTHING wrong with your body and EVERYTHING wrong with the clothes.

"Don't get me wrong I appreciate, and have come to expect differences in sizing between brands and styles and I'm also aware that I've put on a few extra lbs throughout lockdown but I cannot comprehend a world where a size 12 pair of jeans are SMALLER than a size 8 pair of jeans?!?"

Before signing off: "So hunnies, do not be discouraged by clothes that don't fit, don't let them distort your perception of your beautiful, wonderful body and certainly don't let them ruin your day. You are enough, just the way you are."
