Blog: Leonie BarrieSale sizes don’t matter

Leonie Barrie | 3 January 2007

As women around the country make the most of the sales – and just as likely count the cost of over-indulging during the holidays – a new survey has revealed that nearly 40% of women have bought clothes they knew were too small, promising themselves they would slim into them – and that 70% admit that the items are still hanging in the wardrobe unworn. And nearly a quarter (24%) of women have bought clothes that they knew were too small because they just couldn't bear to buy the next size up. Perhaps you won’t be surprised to hear, though, that the research has been carried out by Tescodiets.com, which claims to be the UK’s largest online dieting service.
