She's received support from other shoppers after her social media post went viral.

Chloe Martin from Scotland shared her frustration about high-street shopping sizes in a tweet that many are able to relate to.

Amongst women, the sizing is quite an issue and just like Chloe, many have encountered similar situations.

Twitter users shared their experiences under the tweet:

Other social media posts said:

"I know exactly what you mean, I have clothes in my wardrobe ranging from a size 8 to a 16 - all of which fit me. Cannot figure out what size I am.

''I don't dare to buy any clothes without trying it on - so no internet shopping for me.''

Chloe's tweet has received over 262, 300 likes and others continue to share their frustrating experiences with the high-street retailers.

Chloe told Metro news about the constant problem she faces:

''I’m surprised that a tweet about jeans could reach so many people, but honestly, I feel like women are so sick of being made to feel larger than they are because clothing stores sizes are terrible.

''A lot of high street stores target young women to buy their clothes and they’re giving young women the impression that they need to go up a size when in reality it’s the store’s fault.

''There doesn’t seem to be an ideal size 12 or any other size because from the picture we can all see clearly that they are totally different. There are two pairs of size 12 jeans from Bershka in that picture and they are both different sizes.''
