Zara shopper says ‘secret symbols’ on price tags help you find the perfect fit

It’s fair to say that shopping for clothes can be an absolute nightmare. Sometimes you can fit into a smaller size and feel absolutely fabulous, and others you can go three sizes up and still struggle to close the zipper.

If you’ve ever shopped at Zara, you’ll know what we’re talking about.

But, what if we told you there’s a hidden hack which tells you whether you need to order your own size or size up?

A TikTok user, who goes by the name of Officially Outfits, claims that Zara clothing has a secret symbol right there on the price tag, which tells you whether it will be true to size or small fitting.

“Unsure which size to get at Zara?” the video asks, before showing a label which has a box around the tag hole.

“The little box around the tag hole means true to size. Get your normal size,” the TikTok user says, before switching to a label which has a triangle around the tag hole. “The triangle around the hole means it comes up small, so size up.” Consider us officially mind blown.

While many TikTok users have responded by pointing out that the different shapes represent different Zara clothing collections, Officially Outfits says the video is based on how each collection fits, which makes perfect sense to us.

Meanwhile, another TikTok user, who goes by the name Cookiemonster210 has backed up the theory, saying she was told by a member of Zara staff when she was paying for her items.

“I just found out the most crazy Zara hack ever and it will change your life for the better,” she said.

“So, the lady working at the register basically told me that anything that has a square on it means that it is true to size and anything that has a triangle on it means that you need to size up.”
