|Poppy's swollen paw|
Anyway, back to the title of this post. Today I noticed a hole appearing in my linen trousers, which I wear when it's very hot weather as they're nice and airy and I don't have to get my lilly white legs out. So I decided to go to New Look and buy some new ones as I knew i'd forget about the hole in the 'Bum' area and wear them out by accident. Two minutes later I did just that and left the house in my holey linen trousers with my underwear exposed to the world, doh!
My current pair are about a year or so old now, they're a size 10 and from New Look. So I bought some that are exactly the same without trying them on, not thinking anything of it. When i got home I put them on to find they were far too short and wouldn't even do up. What?! They're exactly the same size and my old ones haven't stretched as they're now tighter than they used to be on me.
Here are the old ones in a size 10..
(sorry for the bad quality, my cameras focus was playing up)
And here are the new ones in a size 10..
There's a huge different between the two sizes! And there I was thinking for the last few months that i'd put on weight and gone up a dress size. No, the shops have just decided to make their clothes considerably smaller. This sort of thing makes me so angry, some girls would be really bothered by the fact they are now a size 12 instead of a size 10 and would go to extreme measures to get back into a 10, when really they haven't changed shape or size at all! I'm not impressed New Look and I'm sure other people aren't either. I'd love to hear everyones thoughts on this.
