Right, I buy a lot of Zara clothes, mostly Cardigans and woolen things, I also have a couple of cotton dresses and t-shirts.
ALL OF IT GETS HOLES IN!!!!
Seriously every single thing I own from there has holes in. Does anyone else have this problem?
Just wondering because my friends have this hole problem too!!

Don’t buy them then. I’ve noticed that their cardigans look very thin and fragile, my mum owns a few.
I’ve only got a t-shirt from Zara and it lost its shape in the wash, but it hasn’t got holes.

actually it’s true… zara clothings aren’t high quality clothes, and kind of overpriced… I have lot’s of clothes from there and everything, even t-shirt I have to handwash them or they’ll get holes…. Actually in Mexico the dry cleaners don’t accept anything from zara… so be careful!!!!

Seriously?
As much as I moan, there are hardly any decent shops in my town so I still buy clothes from Zara and pray (and sew) for no holes!!!

I only have some jeans from them, which faded ridiculously fast in the wash. None of their other clothes fit me, even size L..and I’m not even chubby, wtf?!

I have a few shirts from Zara and so far they’ve been okay. No holes in them. And one of them I’ve had for two years…
Though that shirt might be the exception to the rule.

I’ve also found that their sizing is a little weird. Sometimes a large fits me and other times I need an x-small.

As a girl who used to live in Nantes (Zara capital), I have to say that i LOVE ZARA! The only problem I’ve ever had with a pair of pants from there is a broken zipper (probably from over use haha). It’s a French brand geared toward French shoppers—most of whom delicately wash and line-dry their clothes. I’d just take it easy in the wash, and if it’s a super lightweight sweater handwash, and you should be fine

Actually did get a hole in my skirt ones, which a friend borrowed and probably stretched out. But I think the blazers are good quality. But I did notice in the store lot of coats and jackets with loose or missing buttons. You just have to check the seems and buttons in the store, if they seem a bit ripped don’t buy them or fix ’em before wear. Some shoppers are real pigs, they throw clothes and rip m when they are fitting..

Wait for Zara sales. I get cute dresses in the sales but they’ve been fine.

Hm… I keep wanting to buy something from Zara, but have had issues with the sizing, the things I’ve tried on have run really large. I didn’t know about the quality problems – all that plus it being slightly overpriced regardless makes me reconsider.

i love zara…mostly because there’s not an h&m in texas. i find that the sizes seem to run small to me. i bought a blouse, washed it, and the bottom of it looked like a balloon.

We don’t have a Zara here, but I was in Dublin a few weekends ago and I went in for a look. I always thought they were quite a cheap shop, but apparently not! They were selling dresses for over €100 and an imitation leather jacket for €200.
Any time I’d been there before I’d always noticed that their prices were low, around the same as New Look and H&M. Did they suddenly get expensive or did I just pick some weird items to look at?

^^Some things are a lot cheaper than others. There’s quite a price difference between the smart range that’s at the front of the shop and the casual and basics ranges that you find at the back. It is reasonably cheap for some things but not for the smarter stuff.

Oh ok. I think this was near the front so that might explain it.

Hm, i’ve never bought anything from Zara, but this is definitely not encouraging information! I don’t want to pay that much for a poor-quality item.

I’ve bought great fitting things from Zara BUT a couple of shirts lost their shape after just a few washes. I wasn’t very happy.

i actually agree with superbecky.
they have the cutest stuff but nothing fits me right.

and the quality and handfeel of their clothes are not that good for the price point.
granted that the styles are super cute, it feels like a slightly pricier H&M.

if you want knit clothing that lasts, go to jcrew or banana republic. their stuff lasts (at least mine does)

>_< I always have loved Zara! Nothing I have has ever gotten any holes in it or lost its shape. Am I an anomaly here? I usually buy my Zara stuff from Hong Kong though…I have this one pair of jeans that’s been with me through Hong Kong, Beijing, and California. They only sprung a hole from the wear and tear….I’m a little sad. Haha, I love Zara!

I’ve found that Zara sizes are often too big for me, or maybe the store near me doesn’t stock XS or S enough?

I haven’t bought either because I’ve found it to be kind of pricey (and I like H&M more) but I guess I probably shouldn’t??

i agree to most of you. my Zara clothes have lost their shape already, and their sizing is not consistent. sometimes i’m small, medium, large, or even extra large. but the size that really fits me well is small.
