M&S forever

If you have ever felt a slight frisson of anxiety when trying on a skirt that won’t zip up, remember this. High street shops have wildly differing dress sizes. The same woman can be anything from a size 8 to a size 16 depending on which retail establishment she happens to be standing in. Two fashion tips on the strength of it: 1) if the much larger size fits better, buy it, take it home, and cut out the label, and 2) if you find yourself in the unlikely position of having worked your way through a whole packet of chocolate biscuits while watching News At Ten, so that you’re left on the sofa like a beached whale with a light crumb coating, be careful where you shop for the next seven days. Patronise only those shops with generous sizing. If in doubt, head for M&S.
