WHAT IS WITH THE LIGHT IN THIS FITTING ROOM?!

13. The shop assistant promises to bring you the remaining suits once you've tried on what you have.

15. LIKE, ARE YOU TRYING TO SELL CLOTHES HERE? CAUSE THIS IS NOT MAKING ME WANT TO BUY CLOTHES.

17. And then you have to COMPLETELY UNDRESS in that harsh, awful little place.

18. I repeat: UNDRESS COMPLETELY. In a hot, gross little cubicle with the lighting that reveals EVERY LITTLE FLAW.

E!

19. If you've never done it, try getting dressed and undressed in a tiny space when you're already hot and sweaty. After two minutes and one bikini top you're already super exhausted.

20. You wonder who came up with the genius idea to place those anti-theft things directly on the bikini crotch.

21. You also question if it was a smart choice to eat so much pizza before you started shopping.

22. Gradually, you get hungry, thirsty and tired. You reflect on why you didn't just do all of this online instead.

23. Once you realize that you need to get fully dressed again to get those other bikinis that didn't make it into the fitting room, you almost collapse.

24. "Is it all worth it?" you ask yourself as you struggle to put your clothes back on. "Does God exist?"

25. As you go out, you decide just to give up entirely. You'll just make due with the bikini from last year. #YOLO
