"This top, literally, melts into the skin."

Spanx Trust Your Thinstincts Tank Top vendor said this just now.

 

Uh, no, thanks. I think I'll pass.

Literally melting into skin sounds painful.

Wonder if Spanx is going to pay the medical bills to have it removed?

While I get the point she was trying to make it was an unfortunate choice of words. But certainly not the worst thing I've heard! I was watching HSN last week and a presenter, selling a pull on elastic waist pant, said you don't have to worry about your button putting a hole in your shirt?! Don't you just hate when that happens?!

 

WHAT??!!

Funny.

Probably would have been better to say “molds to your body like a second skin”. 

 

Sometimes I grin at the things hosts and vendors say, but then I think...If I had to sell something for an extended period of time, I might say something goofy or stumble over my words too.

@Andreatoo   Can't say I ever had a button put a hole in my shirt.  I am darn near laughing my a** off with that one.

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise
