WHO tries on panties in a clothes store Fitting Room?
PERSONALLY, I'm aware that a lot of sizes are built to stretch. I have an awareness of my own size and realize it can acommodate other sizes as well. I buy them in packs or off the rack but I DO NOT TRY THEM ON first.

Catalyst of thread: Thongs, etc, found hanging on the "Go back" bar in the fitting room where I work.

Am not paid enough for this. :banghead:

3. Well, if the store sells them unwrapped....
Glad that I only buy them in sealed packages.
I supposed it's not that different from the people who try on swimsuits when they're not wearing undies.
I wouldn't want your job however.

Thanks for that. Plus, your sig made me LOL. :D

4. I worked in a woman's clothing store when the Thong Song
came out. It's against state law for women to try on underwear but we'd have a insane amount of women who never had worn a thong try to sneak them in the fitting room and argue with us because they had no awareness of their size.

9. Wow! You have a state law against it?
I don't mean to congratulate myself too much, but if I had a couple of dollars and was that curious about the thong, I'd just buy it.

Aack. What you must have gone through!

10. We need underwear police.
I don't know if we have a law against it here. I don't think it would be qualifications for tasering, but a right and proper punishment should be necessary.

18. I don't try on panties but
can't help asking - are crotches somehow dirtier than other parts of the body? I mean, people try on all kinds of clothes - they touch their armpits, their feet, their legs, their breasts. But only crotches are nasty?

Oh, and last I knew, it would be very unlikely if not impossible to get an STD from a pair of underwear that someone had on for a few moments.

21. I think the answer is 'yes' - probably why they invented underwear in the first place.
For both genders, before I get my head taken off.

28. Honey, have you ever been confronted with butt-crack sweat?
Don't envy me, please. ;-) Don't you be giving me a hard time, hear? I feel about to quit this job anyway. It's not about bodily functions, either. Men are as completely gross as women. I try to be positive, but it's really hard. The other day I was asked, "You do know the difference between one and twenty, right?" and then she walked away. I could have chopped her skinny, ugly bod in half, but I plastered on the Stepford Wife smile.

I'm not trying to be an asshole (pun absolutely intended). And I don't envy you the job - I work retail. I know about those jobs and I know all about obnoxious, self-centered, holier-than-thou, talk-down-to-the-help customers.

Just pointing out that in the large scheme of things, the 30 seconds a pair of panties are on someone in a changing room are probably not going to infest them with cooties.

36. I think the policy is really related to the "ick" factor.
Few customers want to think that the undies have been worn next to other peoples' nekkid nether regions even if the customer has enough sense to launder new undies before wearing them. Having policies against trying them on or returning them out of the package after purchase is probably good for store sales, outside of specialty lingerie stores at least.

40. Oh, I realize that
And I honestly don't care either way, don't try underwear on at the store and am not aiming to turn this into the new "douchebag" thread. :rofl:

I guess I'm just too darn logical and look at things from that point of view rather than the knee-jerk "ick" reaction. After all, armpits can be pretty darn gross and are probably on average grosser than the average crotch but no one objects to trying on shirts. Though I really have no desire to do a study on the subject. :P

38. Skygazer, I beg you to understand the "butt crack factor", that's all...
:hug: Thank you for your patience. But it's not the infestation that I fear. It's more the "getting used to the awfulness bringing me within a width of some walleyed industrial sycophant" and her secretions that makes me unsteady. Y'know?

75. 'Community Underwear' is a prime vector for Chlamydia transmission.
Not so much for the other assorted cooties, but definitely for chlamydia. Hence the various laws against trying on underwear, or trying on swimsuits WITHOUT underwear. Contact time is not so important - chlamydia can live for quite awhile in cloth, and contact need only be momentary for the bugs to take up residence.

76. Certainly they are.
Edited on Mon Sep-24-07 11:55 AM by janesez
Crotches are where we expel liquid and solid wastes. Not everyone is as diligent as they should be in cleansing these areas after expelling. Urine is sterile, but fecal matter is the most bacteria-laden substance on earth.

It would be highly unlikely, but not IMPOSSIBLE, to contract an STD from underpants. But what you could get is crabs.

Also, blergh. :puke:

This corporate stuff is getting out of hand. No, I really don't believe people should try on underwear that wedges up their clean/unclean ass. Sorry if that makes me some kind of fascist, but I'm past caring at this point.

39. Never.
I have an awareness of my own size, and if I shop at a store where I don't usually shop and end up with something that doesn't fit, I just take the loss. If I knew that a pair of underwear I'd purchased had been tried on before... I think I'd just stop wearing underwear.

64. They did a story on the news about panty returns to stores.
They bought panties in various stores, tried to return them and were successful. And in many cases, the same panties were put right back on the shelves in the store. This is in a state where it's illegal to try on underwear, and I think also to return it. IIRC, one of the stores was Victoria's Secret. Eeeuuuw!

66. I do not like fitting rooms for ANYTHING.
Not to freak anybody out or anything, but I worked retail for years, and I will tell you that fitting rooms are not as private as you might think. One Department Store I worked at had security peepholes into ALL the fitting rooms. The stock boys would get busted fairly routinely when they'd camp out by the spy holes into the lingerie fitting rooms...

I will NEVER try anything on unless it is an absolute necessity.

70. Gross.
I would never wear my own unwashed underwear. I'm not going to wear someone else's. And I'm not going to hang them up for other people to try on.

I understand trying on bras or something, but I don't think it's necessary to try on underwear. Hold it up to your ass to check! Or - for god's sake - try it on over your underwear.

I'm so sorry, Sugar Smack. Some people should not be allowed into retail locations.

71. do stores check/clean those panties people tried on before putting it back out
to sell to others ?

whenever i think of this i kind of wish all underwear was sold in pack and maybe just put out one of each type for display.

74. I was not aware that this happened. And...
I am not happy that I am now aware of it.

Ignorance can indeed be bliss.
