Dear clothing retailers: Your fitting rooms just don’t do it for us.

Azania Mosaka shared a recent shopping experience with Africa Melane on their Weekend Breakfast show. She lamented on how trying on clothing items in the fitting rooms has become a disappointing experience because the mirrors and lighting do not flatter or make a customer feel good.

Many listeners strongly agreed, including a caller who said she preferred to take clothes home rather than use in-store fitting rooms.

It’s better to buy the clothing, go home, and take it back if it doesn’t fit.
