Best Place to Check Out the Competition (2001)


Can't tell if that blouse fits just right? Wondering if those pants sag a little in the butt? Just ask one of the ladies next to you in the Loehmann's dressing room -- there should be plenty of them. Rather than offer individual stalls, this popular discount designer clothing store simply has one big cavern where everyone from teenagers, pregnant ladies and grandmothers gathers amid the furnitire, spare clothing racks and mannequins like one big, happy, naked family. Sure, it's a little embarrassing when you realize you're wearing threadbare panties purchased in 1988, but that's a small sacrifice considering the bargains -- and the chance to check out the competition. Now, could you help me with this zipper?
