A few months ago I wrote about two pieces I bought from my favourite charity shop. A size 20 kaftan and a size 8 skirt, both of which fitted perfectly. Today, I’m wearing another thrifted skirt. Funnily, just like the size 8 one I wear all the time, it’s by Topshop. And it’s a size 16.
Now, how does that work? Granted, the two skirts are different styles, but surely the simple principles of measurement still apply?
As soon as I saw this floral fancy on the rail, I snapped it up. The size on the label doesn’t really matter to me, and for just £2 I couldn’t refuse. But I don’t think I’d pay £30+ for something so badly fitting.
What do you think? Do you have issues with sizing in any high street shops? Does it bother you, or would you rather go up/down a size to ensure the perfect fit? I’d love to know!
