If clothing retail stores want to sell more items they need to have better lighting in their dressing rooms. I mean, there needs to be lighting that hits brightly and floods your eyeballs making it seem that your flab, cellulite, whatever you perceive as physical flaws, get washed away in a sea of light. Just like an over-exposed photograph. I was in such a dressing room today and the incredible lighting almost tricked me into buying a swimsuit.
I caught on to one clothing stores use of "skinny" mirrors a while back. It took about 3 shopping trips but I finally got it. Remember Elaine from "Seinfeld" and that black dress that fit in the store, yet was 4 sizes too big when she tried it on at home? I've lived it and it's real. ("That's false reflecting!" - Elaine, Seinfeld ep. "The Secretary".)
I know where I'm shopping the next time I need a self-esteem boost.
