Watching an expose on the selling of USED lingerie (yes, as in underpants) on the part of big name stores like Gap, Victoria Secrets, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom's, J Crew, etc.

How disgusting is that! :lipwobble:

So, the best defense? Wash EVERYTHING before you put it on! :eek:

Well, I'm one of those freaks that won't wear anything at all until it's been washed, but still!

I really wanted to alert our UK members to this as I know many of you love to shop when here. Seriously. Be VERY alert when buying lingerie of any kind, and bathing suits.

It seems it is not illegal to return USED (not just purchased, returned unworn) products to the shelf to sell. :eek:

I knew people who'd go clubbing in stuff then return it, often unwashed if it looked clean, then get a new outfit for the following week. And one of my schoolfriends' mum had a clothing shop and she took items off the rack, wore it then put it back and chose something else including bags and belts.

i don't know if it's still like it but you used to need to look very closely at BHS clothing, make up, hairs and once i bought a top and had to return it.

oh my g-d it made me sick, it had that red stuff we have in our bodies on it.....ewww the thought of it :blech:
