ZARA and the L-Word


When large suddenly means small, what comes next?

You know, when I first discovered this super pretty ZARA jumpsuit in their online shop a week ago, I was smitten! I knew I wanted to own this navy-colored beauty like RIGHT NOW! It looked incredibly versatile and comfy as well. So, despite being nearly bankrupt (as usual), I ordered the beauty in my usual size “small” and waited for the delivery man to appear.

Just to remind you, even though I’m rather tall (1,74 metres), I almost always wear a size small (at ZARA, too), sometimes a medium, but very rarely. I only buy larger clothes when I want to be dressed in an oversized kind of style.

But when my jumpsuit arrived, it was so small, I couldn’t even try it on because I didn’t fit into it AT ALL! Had I become fat? I didn’t think so, but I was kind of discuraged, nonetheless. Those are the things I sometimes hate about online shopping: you always know your size and suddenly, they change the measurements and you have to send back your items in order to exchange them for another size.

Finally, I found out that with this jumpsuit, size “large” is my perfect size. I don’t understand why they would label it that way, what about people that aren’t as skinny as I am? They can forget about wearing this jumpsuit altogether as L is the largest size available. I only have one word for that: silly. But oh well, I adore the jumpsuit and I’m happy that at least, size L does fit me!

How do you like my look? I simply combined said jumpsuit (in size L, haha) with my lovely Rebecca Minkoff marble bag* which is unfortunately sold out (but you can find more lovely Rebecca Minkoff bags right here) and some really nice ZARA platform heels. Not much else needed except some cool flash tattos and some pink lipstick. Would you wear this look the same way?

    Ich finde es ja mindestens genau so befremdlich, wenn bei normalen Sachen (also nicht oversized) eine 36 plötzlich so groß geschnitten ist, dass sie einer 38 oder 40 passen. Ich weiß ja nicht, ob das die Laune heben soll (“hey, mir passt eine 36), aber mich nervt es, dass ich jedes Mal drei Größen zur Auswahl brauche, um eine passende zu finden. Im Laden mag das ja noch gehen, aber bei Onlineshops finde ich das mehr als nervig, weil ich jedes Mal was zurückschicken muss…
