AS much as we love ZARA, we have to admit that the sizing has always been a bit bonkers.
Well if you’ve ever struggled to fit into a pair of size 16 jeans but easily slipped on a size 10 skirt, then we’ve found just the shopping tip for you.

Earlier this month, TikTok account Officially_Outfits claimed there’s a secret clothing symbol on Zara swing tags which indicate how the item fits.
In a video which has racked up over 460,000 views, the fashion fan pointed out how the tags have a shape around the hole in the top.
The shopper claims that a grey square means you should choose your normal size – but a triangle is a sign that it runs a little small.
Sharing clips of the two separate tags, they wrote: “The little box around the tag hole means true to size – get your normal size.

“The triangle around the tag hole means it comes up small so size up.”
Backing up the claims, TikTok user @cooookiemonster210 said a member of the Zara staff told her the “shopping hack” while she was paying for her items.
She said: “The lady working on the register said […] anything with a triangle on it means you need to size up as their clothes are fitted based off European sizes.”
When shopping online, Zara has a “find my size” function which recommends the best fit based on your weight and height.
