I’m midsize and thought I’d give Zara a whirl for some summer clothes – the XL jeans wouldn’t even go past my thighs | The Sun

A MIDSIZE woman has revealed that she thought she’d give Zara a whirl for some new summer clothes, but was left with very mixed thoughts after trying on bits in the changing room.

While some items were clear winners, Rosie Breen, a fashion fan who describes herself as a “midsize queen”, was left disappointed when a variety of size XL items were not even close to zipping up.  

Rosie took to TikTok and shared a clip with the caption ‘Zara trying to ruin your self esteem with s**t sized clothing but we won't let them!!!!’

The social media star shared screenshots of some of the new-in pieces on the Zara models and then shared how they looked on her. 

First of all, Rosie modelled a black denim corset top in a size XL.

While it looked pretty good from the front, Rosie pulled a disapproving face and then turned around to show that it would barely zip up.

After this, Rosie tried on a pink textured crop top in a size M.

Unlike the corset, this top was a much better fit on Rosie, as she beamed for the camera.

Following this, the social media user then tried on a draped crop top, also in a size M.

She mouthed “love” but then shook her head at the top’s fit on her figure.

Rosie then modelled a printed tulle swimsuit, in a size XL.

But she was not impressed, yet again, as she made a disappointed face.

Unfortunately for Rosie, things didn’t look up, as she then modelled a patchwork denim dress in a size L.

The dress was far too tight for the midsize fashion fan, as she pointed to where the buttons were bulging open.

However, Rosie then tried on a pair of patchwork jeans, in a size XL.

Unlike the dress, these jeans were a much better fit, as Rosie turned around to give her followers a closer look at the flattering fit of the jeans.

Things continued looking good when Rosie then modelled a denim skirt, this time in a size L.

Rosie paired the skirt with a white cropped t-shirt, for a very flattering fit.

However, the denim dream was soon crushed when Rosie tried on a pair of straight leg jeans.

Despite Rosie nabbing a size XL, she couldn’t get the jeans on – as she struggled to pull them over her thighs.

However, she then opted for a pair of mid-rise jeans, also in a size XL.

Despite being the same size, these jeans were a much nicer fit, and pleased with the denims, unlike the pair prior, Rosie could actually do them up.
