CLOTHING company Pull & Bear has been slammed by customers for calling a UK size ten a “large dress size”.
Twitter user Hollie was shopping on the ASOS website, when she noticed the controversial clothing size listed by the Spanish brand.
She was looking to purchase a floral crop top and shorts combo set, when she saw she had the option of choosing sizes ranging from extra small being a UK size 4, to large being a UK size ten.
Outraged, Hollie took to Twitter to share a screenshot of the clothing website sizing and captioned it “U wot m8.”
The tweet clearly struck a chord with online users, with the tweet being liked over a thousand times since it was uploaded earlier today.
Some users commented about the sizing promoting a negative body image for women.
One user, Maeve McQuillan said: “I was size 10 once in my life & it was when I was anorexic so calling it ‘Large’ is not good.”
She also said that the average UK dress size of 16 would be an XXXL by Pull & Bear’s sizing guide.
ASOS addressed Maeve’s concerns and tweeted her saying: “Sorry to hear this Maeve. We understand how you feel. We’ve passed the feedback on to the relevant team.”
