Rule No. 4: Sometimes, rules are just rules. I really can’t explain why you aren’t allowed to take photographs inside our store (or why you’d ever want to, but whatever). Nor can I justify the reason our bikini separates are annoyingly stuck together with a security sensor, making it virtually impossible to try on an entire swimsuit at once. Or the reason our jean sizes skip all the odd numbers, leaving about half of our customers (including Sofia Coppola– sorry about that!) with an impossibly poor fit. But please, just oblige us when we kindly explain these rules to you. If you honestly think we lowly sales associates are asked to take any part in creating these guidelines, you have bigger problems than trying on a swimsuit in two go-rounds.
