More experienced clothing alarm goes off. Since there is not a visual presence of any security tags on clothes, a responding employee must be extremely careful to not wrongfully accuse a customer of stealing.
Compare this scenario to a shoplifter carrying merchandise, or holding a bulging purse. The visual cue is present that there might be stolen product, which makes it much less discrete for a shoplifter leaving the store.
Concealing merchandise is about plausibly deniability. Even if the alarm responds to the concealed security tags on clothes, a shoplifter who is seen empty handed can blame the clothing alarm on something else. They can believably deny their attempt to shoplift.
When the shoplifters include the use of boosters or bolsters to conceal stolen items, they greatly increase their chance for success.
Boosters can include false casts on arms and legs. There are ways to add extra hidden pockets to an already puffy coat. Sometimes it is as simple as a booster under a woman’s dress that looks like a pregnancy belly, but is really a hollow shell designed to have stolen clothing stuffed inside of it.
