There's nothing like not being able to fit into a dress that you love, knowing full well it's your exact size. You may have noticed that, with H&M, that's kind of the case a lot of the time.
Earlier this year, Lowri Byrne called the company out on Facebook in May after, despite being a size 12 and "small busted", she found that she couldn't fit into a size 16 dress - in fact, she even said she "could barely breathe" in the bardot-style H&M dress.
But now the fashion giant has been reprimanded by another customer. Samantha Bell hit out at the company on Twitter after comparing a size 16 pair of H&M jeans and a pair from Primark in the same size, which showed a dramatic difference.
As her pic shows, there's almost a whole hands-worth of difference in the two pairs, with the H&M jeans looking way more like a size 10 than a 16. In a later post she says that the H&M jeans are 5.5 inches smaller. Samantha said of the drastic contrast: "Come on, @hm - you guys NEED to sort this out! H&M 16 (blue) vs Primark 16 (black). Not cool."
Many others were quick to say that they had experienced a similar thing shopping in H&M:
Many women pointed out that, while there's nothing wrong with actually being a size 16, it was confusing to fit into one size in most other shops but jump a few sizes up in H&M, which obviously shows a huge sizing discrepancy for H&M compared to other high street stores. Sort it out please H&M.
Have you had a similar experience with H&M's sizing? Let us know! @sofeminineUK
