How to change a dress size in a day

Surely the vague adoption of clothes/dress sizes within UK fashion retailers is tantamount to deceit?

An online survey of 1,000 women, indicated that 15% bought a bigger dress size than they expected when shopping at Primark.

Top Shop and New Look were also named as stores with smaller sizing.

Marks & Spencer, Asda’s George brand and Next had the most generous sizes.

Why can’t a 12 be a 12?

How many returns are there a year simply because retailers choose a different definition of size?

Can you imagine the chaos that would ensue if a mans 17″ shirt changed a size or two from shop to shop?

    It’s great being male – most of my shopping for clothes (business and casual) is online. I cannot remember the last time I needed to return something because of size or fit.

    Do sizes really vary that much for ladies clothes?
