I'm sure there's a social studies' thesis in here somewhere.
True, but this is not without consequence: the return policies in women's stores are now draconian compared to men's shops (and though it's probably illegal, often highend stores that have separate men's & women's departments enforce different policies).
That's what happens when too many people try to take advantage of the system. A few returns can be absorbed easily, but if it's a "cultural norm" it has to be factored into the business model.
