    23 Of The Worst Fucking Things About Shopping For Women's Clothes

    “At last, pockets I can use!” Lol no these are fake.

    1. Non-functioning zips.

    A curse on any top or pair of jeans with zips that don’t actually work and are just there for ~fashion~.

    2. Fake pockets on jeans.

    It’s OK, we don’t need to carry anything important ever!

    3. And extremely tiny pockets on jeans that aren’t big enough for a phone.

    4. Normal dresses with cut-out sections in awkward places.

    5. Silky shirts that make you sweat a lot.

    “Hey, I’m just a regular-looking blouse, don’t worry about me. I’m really chill, but I will FUCK YOU UP as soon as the sun comes out.”

    6. Plain-looking jumpers in the "basics" section that have loads of metal studs on them in a really random place.

    Sometime we don’t want to look like Roman gladiators, Zara.

    7. Weirdly tiny pockets on T-shirts.

    Like, what are they for?

    8. Shirts with buttons that don’t consider boobs.

    9. Inexplicably being three different sizes in three different shops.

    Or even three different sizes in the same shop, really.

    10. Clothes in larger sizes that are just wider and not longer.

    11. Insanely hot changing rooms.


    12. Plaid shirts that are the same print as ones from the men's section, but inexplicably thinner.

    And yeah, we can try to buy them from the men’s section, but that’s not so easy if you’ve got big boobs or hips.

    13. Tops you have to wear with other tops underneath.

    You don't see this in the men's section!

    14. Dresses that require you to wear a whole other slip dress underneath them.

    15. Regular clothes that you have to dry-clean or hand-wash.

    Twitter: @iamfaithgardner

    Lol fuck that.

    16. Any clothes you can’t wear with a bra.

    RIP anyone with big boobs.

    17. Jeans that come in clothes sizes instead of measurements like men's jeans.

    18. When you want to buy a plain T-shirt, but shops seem to exclusively sell ones with weird slogans on them.

    Not sure a “your boyfriend is trash” top is suitable everyday wear.

    19. T-shirts that look totally normal and plain until you spot the tiny embroidery that says something completely random.

    20. And tops that seem to be obsessed with California, even though you live 3,000 miles away.

    Can confirm the UK is nothing like California.

    21. Everything being unnecessarily cropped, specifically SWEATERS.

    My stomach gets cold :(

    22. Tops with a ridiculous number of hanger straps.

    ignore my bra straps and the hanger strap thing but hoco dress:))

    23. And bodycon skirts that continue to rise up no matter how much you pull them down.
