      Dunno whose fault it is, women with wishful thinking about what sizes fit them or stores trying to flatter them, but the customer enquiry counters in every supermarket I visit are always busy with queues of people, nearly all women, taking clothes back presumably because they don't fit. This is annoying because these counters usually double as the cigarette counter!

        Men's and children's clothes also vary in size between stores. As women tend to be the person/people in a household who buy most of the clothes it is often them taking them back.

          Or... people buy stuff, take it home, try it on then bring it back. I don't remember seeing many changing rooms in supermarkets (but Waitrose doesn't sell clothes so I could be wrong). I much prefer to try on at home rather than in the shop as I'm invariably wearing something that's a pain to remove or simply doesn't work with whatever I'm trying on.

          If you don't know the cut of the clothes, and supermarket sizing is more random than most clothing, then this is inevitably going to happen.

            I'm a man I don't try anything on, I very rarely take anything back because of size. They almost always fit.

            I have taken one set of trousers based on style.
