You know the feeling. You’ve managed to pull the jeans up. They’re the last pair, they’re ON SALE, they’re perfect. Or they would be if you could just get them done up.
For most of us, losing the change-room zipper wrestle is a reason to sulk on the home. But H&M customer Ruth Clemens had a different response – she took a photograph of her struggle and shared it with the world via the brand’s Facebook page.
“Dear H&M,” she posted. “I was browsing your sale items in your Leeds store and spotted this pair of kick flare jeans. They were only a tenner – bargain! – and a size 16. I’m normally a size 14 on my hips (occasionally 16 if buying trousers) so I thought I’d try them on. It did not go well.
As I’m sure you’re aware, size 16 is the largest size you stock (apart from in your plus size range, which is very limited in store and does not offer the range of styles for the fashion-conscious that are available in smaller sizes).
