There's nothing like payday to get those 'spenny' vibes flowing. After the longest two weeks of your adult life, you finally have an account balance that doesn't have a minus in it, and there's no way in hell you're not spending the entirety of your lunch break in a badly lit changing room.
But the rush of endorphins doesn't last long when you realise you can't even get those jeans over your thighs and the dress that looked so good on the mannequin is so tight across your breasts you now have a uni boob.
We know that clothing sizings are BS, we know that because we tested it ourselves in Zara, but that doesn't stop us feeling miserable after 10 minutes in the changing room.
But thankfully more and more people are speaking out on the subject of ridiculous sizing, like Lowri Byrne who earlier this year shared the fact that despite being a size 12, she couldn't even fit in a size 16 H&M dress.
Please sort your sizes out because this is absolutely ridiculous!I'm a size 12 and small busted and today in a H&M...

And now H&M have been called out for a second time by Twitter user Samantha Bell.

Samantha took to Instagram to share a pic of a pair of size 16 H&M jeans, compared to a pair of size 16 Primark jeans and the difference really is quite shocking.
Seriously H&M? That's like half a thighs difference.
Definitive proof that you should never let a clothing size define how you feel.
We reached out to H&M who provided the below statement:
"H&M hugely values all customer feedback. It is only ever our intention to design and make clothes that make our customers feel good about themselves, any other outcome is neither intended nor desired. H&M’s sizes are global and the sizes offered in the UK are the same in all the 66 markets in which we operate and online. As there is no global mandatory sizing standard, sizes will differ between brands and different markets. Our dedicated, in-house sizing department works according to an average of the sizes and measurements suggested by the markets we operate in. H&M sizes are continually reviewed by our in-house sizing department.”
