My experience at Mayle recently was exactly opposite that of the editorial reviewer's: uninspiring frocks avec the snootiness. When I asked for a smaller size of a dress on the rack -- I needed at least two sizes smaller -- the saleswoman told me they didn't have any smaller sizes. As I was trying to decide whether the dress would even come close to fitting me (it looked way too big), the saleswoman said in a very snooty way, "You never know until you try." Then, another saleswoman, who was clearly larger than me, said, "Our stuff runs small. I actually wear that size." I left the place wondering whether they were blind, idiots, jealous or a mixture of all three.
