I'm a size 16 and did a new-in-Zara try on – the experience was so disheartening, I basically tortured myself | The Sun
A SIZE 16 style fan felt traumatised after checking out the latest collection in Zara, the experience of which she described as 'torture'.
Nicole Bridget (@nicole.bridgetgrace), from Melbourne, Australia, took to TikTok to share the ''disheartening'' shopping trip to the popular Spanish retailer.
The midsize Aussie had originally popped into the high-street store for a new pair of trousers – but soon the try-on haul ended up a disaster.
''I don't know why I am torturing myself because I know Zara pants never fit me,'' the dark-haired stunner said in the video.
Exhibit A, she chuckled, was a pair of the on-trend cargo bottoms which despite being in the biggest size possible Nicole could not get on.
''Extremely disheartening, didn't fit me. Leather leggings also didn't fit me.''

Unfortunately, the third item in the pile – comfortable cargo joggers in black – were also no good, as they had an odd fit, which she described as ''weird''.
Nicole then moved onto a knitted turtleneck top which she had grabbed in both Large and Medium.
And whilst the latter fit her body better, the shopper was not particularly keen to fork out over £35 for the basic garment.
The following two pieces of clothing – a white long sleeve top, as well as a black going-out number – also stayed in the shop, as Nicole noted the material was of poor quality.

The only item that the style fan ended up nabbing was a black top with an abstract neckline, which she reckoned would be a good staple for work.
Looking back at the failed shopping spree, Nicole wrote in the caption: ''Torturing myself in Zara again.''
