My girlfriend watches real housewives and princesses of long island a LOT. And I sometimes watch with her. The clothing on these shows are far worse. Seriously, who dolls up like that. Gretchen looks like she had plastic surgery every episode.

The med examiners' white pants remain spotless, too, no matter what they do.
Why couldn't that be true in real life: white pants remaining sparkling white all day - and night?

Dr. G was a realistic person - she wore scrubs and sneakers and had her hair pulled back. Can't spell her name, she is a ME in FL and had a reality show.

Nurse Jackie: She wears scrubs, but they are so perfectly tailored to her body, there's no way, if they were real, that she could even take the top off over her head. Sure you could buy scrubs and take them in at the waist, but you still have to get them on & off. Also, she wouldn't be able to comfortably move around in such closely tailored scrubs. I think they sew her into her scrubs for every episode. Everyone else on the show in scrubs wears the usual scrubs that make you look dumpy, but they're functional.

Any detectives or crime scene investigators in Miami, Phoenix, or LA: They live in these hot, hot, hot climates, but they wear blazers, jackets, sweaters. In fact, no working people in TV shows in hot places ever seem to be overheated in their clothes. Seriously, if you lived and worked in LA, would you even own a turtleneck? I can barely tolerate my turtlenecks and cashmere sweaters in Pennsylvania!

Women's business suits of the late 90s: As mentioned by others Ally McBeal and Melrose Place were famous for women's business suits with little itty-bitty tight miniskirts. I was in my 20s then, and needed business clothes, and had a terrible time finding suits that were actually work-appropriate. I wore a size 4 or 6, and every suit I tried on had the super-short tight mini skirt. If I wore those to the mental health center where I worked, it would be VERY hard to work with my mentally ill clients. I ended up doing a lot of blazers over long, flowing skirts down to my ankles.

Realtors who wear suits & ties, or skirts & high heels: In every single HGTV show with a real estate agent, they are dressed to the nines--men in suits & ties, women with blazer & skirt or dress with colorful scarf, and high heels. Every realtor I've seen in person wore normal, everyday casual clothes, even jeans. At my actual closing when I bought my house, both realtors dressed businesslike, the man in a suit and the woman in a businessy pant suit. But looking at houses and running papers to someone's office? They're pretty much in khakis or jeans.

Has anyone seen the show Suits? It's about Harvard lawyers. All the women wear skin-tight, spandex-y, clingy dresses and super high heels. They love to show them walking down the halls with this weird model-esque strut. It's just bizarre.

I forget what I was watching the other night, but a character got out of bed and she was wearing a matching bra and panty set. There was no sexytime implied, it was just supposed to be what she wears to bed. Maybe I'm naive, but I can't say that any woman I know would choose to sleep in a stiff underwire bra. People sleep naked or in an old t-shirt or a bigass nightgown, but not in a bra.

Ha, I love that ALL women supposedly wear matching, sexy bra and panty sets all the time. Pretty much every woman I know wears whatever she grabs out of her drawer and they rarely match unless it's a special occasion

I do wear an underwire bra to bed every once in a while, but it's most just for the 2 or 3 days before my period when my boobs get super sore. It's more comfortable during just that time, other than that I'm in a tanktop and shorts...never sexy lingerie sets.

I remember watching an episode of CSI and they determined a woman that was found dead was also raped because she didn't have matching bra and panties (the guy put back on the wrong pair to try and cover up the rape). One of the investigators made a comment about how since the woman was dressed nice she also would have been wearing matching underwear. That episode had to have been written by a man who is single. Who else would think all women walk around in matching bra and panty sets?
