H&M Are Bringing In A Change That Everyone Has Been Asking For

For years, frustrated shoppers have complained that the clothing giant's sizes come up way too small, and it turns out their woes were valid.

For unknown reasons, H&M has essentially been labelling clothes wrong for years.

You know the tag which compares UK sizes to European ones? If you buy a EUR size 36, it should convert to a size 8, but Swedish giant H&M used to label it as a 10.

Now H&M has finally listened to all the shoppers complaining on social media - and is making its UK sizes bigger. It's about time!

A spokesman told the Huffington Post: "Following customer feedback, we are taking the steps to change our womenswear measurements to be in line with UK sizing.

"For example the previous measurements and fit of a size 12 will now be the measurements of a size 10."

The Swedish ran H&M has already started rolling out the new labels, although it will take some time for all the stock to be updated - with company bosses refusing to commit to a deadline.

So for the next few weeks, just make sure you try before you buy, and remember to pick up a smaller size in future.

Shopper Rebecca Parker, 25, who called H&M out on their sizing blunder in an open letter posted on Facebook in March, labelled the news “a small victory that I think will have such a great impact”.
