Ever wondered what those shapes mean on Zara’s clothing labels?

TikTokers have discovered circles, triangles and squares on their Zara clothes and offered up an explanation about what they mean. While at first glance they appear meaningless, there could be a useful reason behind them that helps shoppers work out which size garment to pick.

If true, this would be particularly useful if you don’t have time to try clothing on in store or if changing rooms close again. But is it really the case?

Zara Labels Explained

TikTok account Officially_ Outfits recently posted, claiming there’s secret clothing symbols on Zara’s labels.

They claim that a grey square on your label means you should go for your normal size at Zara, while a triangle means that you should size up. Other users have suggested a circle means it runs large.

While this offers a helpful explanation for the label meanings, Metro has since reported that unfortunately this isn’t the case.

A spokesperson for the brand told the publication that these refer to Zara’s specific collections, Woman, Basic and TRF. They said, ‘These symbols reference specific sections within the store to support colleagues in knowing where to place items.

‘Regarding the collections – circle: woman, square: basic and triangle: TRF.’
