I grew up going shopping with my mother, a former fashion designer. As we’d stroll down the aisles she’d expertly point out all the pieces’ shortcomings:

“100% polyester. Forget it. Doesn’t allow your skin to breathe.”
“One wash and this top is going to be all over the place.”
“This is hardly sewn together properly.”
“Badly cut.”
