Cathy Classics by Cathy Guisewite for May 21, 2002
Cathy: Why do they cut swimsuits so we have to buy them bigger than the size we wear??! Saleswoman: Simple! If you have to go up a size just to try one on, you'll start feeling insecure...If you have to go up two or more sizes, all the fault will be instantly redistributed from the swimsuit back to the wearer! Cathy: What??! Saleswoman: It's the classic "blame control panel." Saleswoman: Standard on all "mature" suits.
