Woman Writes Scathing Post To Retailer H&M For Their Inaccurate Sizes

A size 12 dress buyer from Scotland is criticizing European fashion titan H&M for their “irresponsible” clothing sizes when she could only fit into a size 20 H&M dress.

Glasgowan Marianne Gray was shopping in the Braehead branch of H&M last week and purchased a sleek blue dress in her usual size 12.

When she got home, the 29-year-old was stunned to find out she could hardly get the dress past her knees.

The upset Marianne returned the dress, then tried on a size 14 and then a size 16 at the store. However, she was angry to discover that she didn’t find the right fit until she got to a size 20.

She described her feelings in an outraged Facebook post: "I am relatively secure in my body, but I can only imagine the psychological impact being a size 20 could have on a young impressionable girl.”

She continued to note: "I have never seen such irresponsibility in this day and age. I am ashamed of you, horrified by you and will not be shopping in H&M again unless this is resolved.”

Gray’s social media post has gone viral, with more than 5000 likes and 1000 comments.

She concluded her post by stating: "I know your excuse will be that your sizes vary - perhaps you should take measurements of individual items and label them differently. You should be ashamed of yourselves."

A number of Facebook users replied to Gray’s post by sharing their own experiences with the Swedish fashion chain.

Sophie Layton Simpson commented: "H&M is horrendous, i nearly broke down in tears trying to fit into clothes on my Birthday."

Leeanne White also noted her unpleasant experience with inaccurate dress sizes at H&M: "The same thing happened to me! I bought a size 16 pair of trousers from them and I couldn't get them past my knees!!!"
