SIZING issues are common on the British high street.
But one woman has been left "angry and upset" after discovering that she could comfortably wear a pair of size 24 jeans from H&M – despite only being a size 16.
Stylist Stevie B took to TikTok to rage about the denim drama, as she showed herself wearing the jeans.
"These jeans are a UK size 24," she began her video.
"They're only a little bit big at the back.
"I'm a 16. This is so damaging to women's mental health.

"H&M are the WORST for this! Yet you can get a small or medium top and it be huge! Make it make sense!!!!" another raged.
"I’m a 14 and I put seven pairs of my jeans on top of each other," a third commented.
"I had from size 10 to 18. All identical waist size."
"Some shops I won’t go in unless I’m closer to a 14 or below as their '18' won’t fit, which would be the biggest size," someone else said.
H&M has been contacted for comment.
