We are in a country where anything related to the ‘S’ word is shushed and undergarments are one big deal when it comes to women. Obviously, in a country where even saying the word ‘bra’ turns head, we know what you women go through when you want to go out fish new stock..
Although a bra is a the basic necessity in womanhood, but when it comes to buying one, women feel too shy and embarrassed. Buying a bra in India is a task in itself- From glaring faces to harassing shopkeepers, it’s one big ordeal to endure.
But don’t you worry dear darlings! Here are some wicked thoughts and happenings that always come around on our shopping spree for the brasseries. We have a back for you with these awkward experiences every women must have been through, just in case you want to feel better, After all, you’re not alone in the boat.
14 Awkward Experiences When You Go On a Bra Hunt in India
1. Cross Checking the trial rooms for hidden cameras
Those careful glances the moment you lock the door are every girl’s step one. Checking if the door knob is locked? Yes, we have been there too!
2. The basic variety
Local stores have just two types of bras. Either you go for the usual padded ones or if you want a little bit sensual touch, you have that big blue bag of Chinese stuff!
3. The lingerie stores
It is horrible to see men and women staring at you while you make that final move of entering a lingerie store. As if we are actually going in to buy stash, Duh!
4. The Unhealthy places!
It is weird that all the lingerie stores happen to be in the rowdiest of places. Near the vegetable market or in the middle of everything! Why can’t they just make a tunnel straight into the shop!
5. The unsaid words
Asking for a B…bb..Bra is in itself the biggest challenge. If asking for a condom embarrases men, yes this is our weak point too. We secretly wish for the shop to have a saleswoman to make things much easier.
6. Stealthy looks
Horror strikes when we see the saleman. It becomes even more difficult to ask for better designs and patterns. Hell, if only men could understand.
7. The Harsh World
Ordeal doesn’t get over with just saying the final word. The crass looks by shopkeeper men and further questions about the size, preferences just make us hide behind the doors.
8. The size story
The most embarrassing moment strikes when we finally have to yell our size. Hell breaks looks for those with larger or too small a size. As if the world wasn’t brutal enough!
9. The weird sale tactics
Life becomes super tough when the salesman takes up to all resorts to convince us that the piece in front is probably the last bra on the planet. Stretchable, soft and what not! Guys, we know what we want, and this is exactly what we don’t want.
10. Post Trial Investigations
It is hilarious when the guy waits patiently for us to give him a feedback of how the bra feels. Gosh, how does one answer that perfectly?
11. The Cursed Pads
Padded bras are often taken as an insult. God, if they weren’t good why would they be making them at all?
12. The transparent bags
While we finally get our perfect bra, things become severely embarrassing when the shopkeeper packs the bras in a transparent bag for almost everyone to see. Hell, that’s a bra not a trophy!
13. The fatal checkout
If anybody has the unlimited right to checkout the women, it is the guys that work at the lingerie shops. We just have no choice than letting them stare at us..yeah go on, check them out for your size calculator to work.
14. The backlashing
As if we are on a mission to buy all the bras in the world, the shopkeeper just keeps yelling for more variety until we reach the last corner.
The bra buying trip might be one putting us through hell, yet we find that extremely hilarious and funny. Well, thanks to the malls and online shopping that we don’t have to go through that anymore and we finally have a choice!
