    re: Retailers selling used panties

    I worked at a "Popular And Known Bra Retailer" and our District Manager would ALWAYS push for us to resell panties.. Or if someone tried on panties and they came back dirrty then to wash them.

    Needless to say I dont work there anymore.

    Re: Retailers selling used panties

    I'm not surprised at all. I inspect my things carefully before I buy. This should be illegal. I'm glad my store wasn't found guilty in this nonsense. I know my particular store is quick to either deny the return or throw out the item ASAP.

    Re: Retailers selling used panties

    Are you serious??? Why the hell would you ever accept returns for personal items?! They resell them to make the money back, but if they had a no return policy on those items and didn't accept the return, then the company wouldn't have even LOST the money they made in the first place. DUH! This is gross!! and these retailers are STUPID.

    Re: Retailers selling used panties

    Yikes! I always wash the new things before wearing them. The idea of wearing a top which someone else has tried before is 'yucky' enough for me, let alone a panty!

    Re: Retailers selling used panties

    That's really gross. I've seen them selling used underwear at second hand places too, stains and everything.. I know a place too that lets you try on underwear too before buying. I won't shop there now even though they have the cutest best fitting bras.

    wtf out here on the receipt at most stores it says NO EXCHANGE ON INTIMIATE WEAR SALES ARE FINAL . In big bold black letters and they even tell you when you're buying under wear that the sale is final .. And over here even second hand stores take everything except underwear ...

    Completely disgusting. Underwear and bathing suit bottoms should never EVER be allowed to be returned!

    I always inspect everything thoroughly before I purchase, but could you imagine getting a used pair of underwear and getting some sort of infection?? If that happened to me, I'd sue for a BILLION frickin' dollars.

    Re: Retailers selling used panties

    Gee I didn't think that you could return these types of items unless they're still sealed in the packet (eg like mens undie packs).

    I always wash things when I buy them, but still - that's disgusting!

    It still sucks that you have to wash something that is supposed to be brand new. I mean, if I wanted used undies I'd go to a second hand store ya feel me?

    ohhh nono! don't be fooled. Once a customer bought a perfume from my store just in time for her to bring it with her on vacay. A few days later, she had her friend (who was still in town) to contact my manager, and told her that when she opened her bottle of brand new perfume, it was a bottle of another perfume inside filled with water. Someone bought the perfume, opened it, replaced it with something else, and somehow found a way to seal the clear wrapping back up to look like it has never been opened.

    Intimate clothing/jewelry/etc should ALWAYS be final sale, even if it's boxed and sealed.

    I would imagine it'd be quite hard to prove where your infection came from. Nearly all of us have the same sorts of vaginal and fecal bacteria on and in our bodies, so it wouldn't be feasible to pin point it exactly, unless you like... culture yourself every day to know exactly what's there, so when you wear new underwear you could tell if something new appeared, but even then there's too many other factors...

    Haha, sorry, I'm a microbiologist, so I over analyze things like this

    Washing new underwear in hot water for the win!!!

    Haha, I guess I'm disgusting, but I never wash new clothes before wearing them... unless I'm worried about dye transferring (dark colored jeans) or if they have a smell (chemicals in the fabric, the store). Underwear I do wash, though.
