I’ve always wondered where larger ladies with a fondness for Chav pink got their clothes and sort of suspected it was somewhere like Ethel Austin (which, up until its recent makeover, I always thought was a charity shop). The supermarkets entering the clothes market has been a good thing. They’ve driven prices right down. But I think we can all agree that George at Asda’s lost its way and Tesco’s Florence + Fred is only okay. Up until this season, Sainsbury’s TU was what supermarket clothes should be all about: reasonably priced basics that don’t look cheap.
Sainsbury’s TU is still okay if you’re a bloke looking for a T-shirt, but the ladies section’s not only gone a bit chav, it’s been supersized. Katharine was after a pair of summer shorts, but you need a very, very large bum indeed to fill a Sainsbury’s TU size 10. On the plus side, if you’re a size 16 lady who’d like to be a size 10, get yourself down to Sainsbury’s and kid yourself.
