I got a bigger size and went shopping on the high street – Primark’s dresses disappointed me, but New Look had better options

SHE wanted some fun and flirty new dresses for the summer.

But when a plus-sized woman went down the high street to look for options, she had VERY mixed results in Primark and New Look.

First, Bunti tried Martini Primark and documented the experience in a video on its TikTok page.

“The sizing was pretty bad – almost nothing past a size 16,” the Welsh redhead commented about the store.

She first tried on a dress in size 18, but the buttons are bursting on her.

Next up was an orange plaid top and a pair of patterned flares, which were a size 18-20, but seemed pretty tight around her curves.

She then hit on New Look, adding that the store had a “much better selection for us plus-size bad guys”.

A silky green leopard-print dress came in first, in size 16, and clung to her figure in all the right places.

She tried another floral print dress in size 18, but unfortunately it “didn’t fit the breasts”.

“Beautiful print,” she smiled.

And finally, she tried on a cute retro print dress from Anne-Marie’s range for the store, which looked adorable on her.

In the comments section, people were quick to judge the size differences in high street stores.

“Primark sizes are terrible,” one person wrote.

“It’s so hard to find clothes, especially shirts that fit right.”

“I know the feeling,” added another.

To which the woman replied, “It’s not frustrating.”

“Primark has gotten so insanely bad,” wrote a third, as Bunti Martini replied, “It’s soul-destroying. Because I love what they’re putting out.”

“New look, just gorgeous,” commented another.

“Lately, the Primark has been a real disappointment for sizes 16-20.”

“The last one is so cute,” wrote someone else.

“I haven’t shopped on the high street in so long because I’m scared.”

She had more success in New Look, first with a leopard-print satin dress
