Fashion world, you’ve done us wrong. Here are our demands.
Is it too much to ask for a little consistency in the dressing room?! Deciding what size to try on in a store is basically trying to wrongly guess a number between 2-25 and being partially naked while doing so.
So we grab 3 or 4 different sizes and sometimes none of those even work it’s like…

With the wage gap, women can’t catch a break when it comes to money. I mean…
Dyed pants, not hands.
Buttons to do their jobs.
Button up. Button down. Button, just do your dumb job. If you combine our lovely lady lumps and a row of buttons, you will get what I call the “peek-a-boobwp_postsor its unfortunate cousin the “the buttoning stops here.wp_postsYou know what I’m talking about. It’s all horrible and threatens to betray us at our most vulnerable moments.
Realistic lighting in dressing rooms.
Cubicles of shame, “dressing roomswp_postsas they are more often called, are notorious for either having the worst or the best lighting. In one store you can look like an airbrushed model from a centerfold and the next you’re asking…
Meet our reasonable demands and we will gladly be back in your stores saying…
Give us back our retail therapy, we need it.
