A SIZE 12 fashion enthusiast has revealed her frustration with the sizing of jeans at Zara.
Olivia, who posts under the acronym @oliviakate.x, took to TikTok where she shared a short video demonstrating this gigantic Difference between a pair of size 12 and size 14 jeans in a retail store.
In the clip, she begins: “I have the Zara green jeans in a size 12 and 14 – the size difference between the two.”
She then compares the size to her ‘regular’ size 12 new look jeans, which is clearly somewhere between the size 12 and 14 Zara jeans.
In a second video, Olivia tries on the Zara jeans and explains: “These are a size 14 – they’re pretty loose in the waist, but they fit really well everywhere else – the bottom and thighs.”
But things soon take a turn when she tries on a size 12.
“Was literally not high-waisted, couldn’t even pull it up,” she says.
They just weren’t flattering at all — they just weren’t good.”

She adds, “Then that’s the length — they’re ridiculously wrong.”
The post has since garnered an impressive 728,000 views and has been inundated with comments from social media users – many claiming they have the same issue when it comes to Zara sizing.
“I’m usually a size 10 and only had to buy a size 12 pair of shorts and I have 2 pairs of different colors, same style, same size and they both fit completely different,” wrote one.
A second commented: “There is absolutely no way I could fit a size 12 at Zara but a size 14 is soooo big on me…I don’t get it.”
In response, Olivia replied, “Me neither! So frustrating.”
A third wrote: “I literally have to get a size 16 at Zara and I can get a 12 at New Look :/ it’s that bad.”
