Danielle Armstrong has hit out at high street clothes store Zara for their sizing.

The Only Way Is Essex star, who is set for a showdown with ex James Lock on new episodes on the show, shared her frustration on her Instagram story.

In a clip, the 32 year old criticised the brand and urged their head office to re-think their sizing after her own experience.

Danielle wore a black vest top and a pair of paper bag waist denim jeans as she shared her frustration.

She explained how six weeks ago she went shopping after the birth of her daughter Orla.

Danielle said: “After you have a baby you don’t know what… it’s so hard you don’t know what fashion suits you and your body that you don’t feel like is your body because before there was a baby in there but now there’s nothing in there and you’re left with feeling like you don’t know if it belongs to you – does that make sense?”

The new mum continued: “So I went shopping in Zara, bought loads of stuff – I’m not joking, you can see all the bags,” she then turned the camera to the pile of bags.

Danielle turned the camera back to her and tugged on the jeans she was wearing and said: “And I put these jeans on now, they’re a UK size 12 – baring in mind I was a size 14 to 16 after having Orla.”


She then said: “We all know Zara, they are not very good with their sizing!

“And, can I just say, anyone that is in Zara that watches this head office wise, I don't think it's good that a large is 12-14, as if that's a large!

“That’s the majority of women in the UK – the average in the UK is a size 12 to 14.”

She then added: “I came home and tried all my stuff on – as you do when you’re all excited and have been on a shopping spree – and it was a disaster.

“I could not get these jeans up six weeks ago, it was impossible. Tom told me to keep them and I refused, but ended up losing the receipt.”

Danielle added: “And we all know Zara’s an absolute b***h when it comes to taking things because they never email – I like the email on a receipt because I always lose the receipt, so I end up with loads of bags of stuff…

“So, Tom said keep them, which I had to because I lost the receipt. And I woke this morning and I thought: ‘I am actually starting to feel a little bit more like how I did before I was pregnant’ so I was like: ‘I’m gonna give them jeans a try’.”

Danielle then shared her excitement as she revealed the jeans are now too big for her as she tugged on the waist.

She then gushed: “It just feels so good to be able to put on a little vest and high-waisted jeans it’s been so long since I’ve been able to wear this look.”
