Finding out there’s a faulty zipper on your new outfit after you’ve tried it on isn’t exactly ideal.

But that’s what happened to one mother who got herself into a rather sticky zip-uation while trying on her new Zara purchase.

The woman’s daughter Isabel Robins (@isabelrobins) posted footage of the entire incident to TikTok as her mother got herself stuck in a brand new jumpsuit, thanks to a faulty zipper.

As a result of the struggle, the woman had no choice but to return to the store to ask them to free her - all of which was also caught on camera.

Isabel begins the video by showing viewers the stuck zipper on the floral green jumpsuit - and it didn’t look like it was going to budge anytime soon.

Refusing to admit defeat by cutting herself out the jumpsuit, Isabel’s mum decided that she should seek help from the professional - the sales assistants from the Zara store where she purchased the outfit. Who else would knows the clothes better?

Isabel then films her mum driving to store, still sporting the jumpsuit (not through choice). Eventually they arrive at the shopping centre and the mum dashes into the lift to get to the Zara store.

Once they arrive at the store, there are no staff members in sight. Luckily, though, they are soon able to flag down a sales assistant who is more than happy to help with the mum’s zipper problem.

In the next clip, the sales assistant can be seen playing around with the zipper, before successfully unzipping the jumpsuit to free the mum. Isabel then films her mum walking ahead of her - back in her normal clothes.

Turns out the trip back to the store was worth the drive after all.

Since posting about her mum’s clothing mishap, Isabel’s video has received more than 240,000 views, and nearly 6,500 likes.

One person wasn’t so sympathetic to the mum’s struggle and wrote: “How is that Zara’s problem? They shouldn’t have helped her.”

“You wonder why Zara employees have an attitude,” another person said.

Though others found the entire thing hilarious.

Someone else added: “I’m deaddddddddd,” with laughing emojis.

“The look of relief,” a fourth person also commented with laughing emoji.

The moral of this story is always check the zipper before wearing or if you don’t there’s some helpful Zara sales assistants who can help with zipper problems.
