Points awarded for the most tactful answer.

Every so often a product is put out as one size fits all. It's easier for the store to display it, and it cuts down on shopping time. However, it does not make the truth easier when a quite hefty customer walked up to an associate, picked up a panty that a size 6 would have trouble getting on and asked,
"Is it really one size fits all?"

  1. That happened to me when I worked in the junior's department at Macy's in Roosevelt Field. There was a line of clothing that was like fancy sweat pants - dresses, slacks, tunics. They were "one size fits all." A very large lady tried it on. She came out of the dressing room, red faced, and handed me the outfit with the elastic completely snapped. Of course I didn't make her pay for it - it went into damaged items. But I felt SO bad for that lady. One size does NOT fit all.
