    I am always be careful when I buy underwear and clothes. That's nasty when people return their underwear to the stores.

    don't you guys have laws governing returns and exchanges on wearable items?

    Underwear of any time is none refundable, none exchangable and once sold sale is final without exception unless the item is faulty and then the store has to talk to the company about replacement and everything goes back to the manufacturer to be check and destroyed

    You'll eat an ass, but you're afraid of underwear that somebody has tried on, or actually worn.

    OK, that convinced me: no more shopping for my lingerie at Victoria's Secret stores. But even Macy's? If I can't trust getting a fresh bra at Macy's what's left?

    Actually most states do, and in fact there are sometimes signs in store dressing rooms that say it's illegal to even try on underwear and swimsuits. Or if you can, it's gotta be over clothes underneath, no direct bare skin contact.

    It appears these employees weren't authorized to do this, though maybe supervisors were also involved. But as the reporter said, while accepting the underwear item back may be illegal, reselling it may not, due to legal loopholes. US laws are often a crazy quilt of irrational exceptions and illogical outcomes.

    BTW, I'd previously read some studies that suggest your own underwear should be discarded after 6 to 12 months, because of accumulation of fungus that won't wash out. It's one of the reasons I never wash my socks with my underwear, because I have a tendency to get both athlete's foot and jock itch, and I don't want cross contamination to my unmentionables (the lacy ones are SO expensive to replace). icon_rolleyes.gif

    I work in the store. Some women returns dirty clothes to get refunds. As for underwear, forget about them. I am not sure about my store policies . They wouldn't accept them if they return or exchange. People should know their size.

    I had a BF who was notoriously cheap, despite being a millionaire. He bought almost all his clothes at flea markets, yard sales & thrift stores. And when I started to put on weight, and my size 32 (US) boxers wouldn't fit my anymore, he asked me for them. For all I know he's still wearing them, some 10 years later.

    I'm sure a lot of people do perform that particular act when the moment is right but the difference in doing that verses wearing underwear is vast.

    People know the ass they are eating or at least feel comfortable enough to do it with that person. People don't know who the hell bought and returned that underwear and what they did to it. There's the difference.

    When I discard my underwear I cut them up and make them unusable. My folks taught me to do that because some people are just cheap and scandalous and are prone to dumpster diving. Underwear is just one of those things that you don't return back to a store and I've known people who have returned it used and I just thought it was nasty. This video confirms it.

    In Canada most stores post that you cannot return underwear or swimwear.

    Nasty V-Secret shoppers.

    Seriously though. Not to label and categorize stores but you'd expect something like from a low budget store.

    At least low budget stores have a "used items" section so the buyer is forewarned.

    You're assuming that people wash them before they return them. As the video showed that isn't the case.

    I wouldn't say that anyone here is overreacting. Anyone here so far who has responded to this post so and those who have yet to respond should themselves this question. Would you buy used underwear? Oh wait! They asked that already in video.

    Let's ask another one then. "Would you buy used underwear if you knew who had used it and returned it?

    Guy101 said I'm simply advising people to wash their underwear before wearing it after it's been newly purchased from a store.



    Exactly my co-worker said to me. I told her she sound like my mothericon_lol.gif

    I totally agree with you, MMTM, and people should wash the clothes before wearing them but honestly I don't think a lot of people do that simply because they assume that the clothes they buy are already clean. It's a false sense of security really and this video hopefully opens peoples eyes.

    I know I do. I'm so damn thankful for my folks advise and wisdom.
    That kind of advise goes a long way.

    I worked at a KOHL'S store once and this woman decided to buy an open and re-taped package of undies. She kept going on and on about whether or not she should buy them; she thought they were returns. She had me use hand santizer...double bag them seperately...and inspect them too.
