She followed me around, kept pressuring me to try on dresses I didn’t like, and was pretty insulting when I wanted to try a sample that was a size two saying “you’ll never fit into that, if you try you’ll probably rip it”.




“I don’t let anyone try on dresses by themselves, because we get a lot of hefers(her words) in here who try to cram themselves into my dresses and they rip the seams and break the zippers because they can’t just realize that they’re too fat for the dress.


What?!!!!!!!!!!!! How has she not been fired? Or at least throat-punched?! I’m so sorry for your [and the other women’s] horrifying experience, OP.

Nothing that bad, but one shop where both my visits were just super awkward.  The first time went, it was a sample sale so you were just sort of on your own to comb through (and try on) racks of unsorted, really beat-up samples.  It was my first-ever dress appointment, so you can imagine how that went 😛  When I went back a week or so later to try on for-order dresses, they ‘forgot’ my appointment, made me wait 20 minutes while they looked for a sample dress I knew they had sold at he sale the week before, and offered NO help pulling/trying on dresses (so I can see how their samples got so destroyed!) and NO helpful feedback once they were on.  Just a really weird experience both times, although I guess weird is better than insulting!
