I bought a bra from a store and realised a size down would fit better lol so i went back to exchange it and while queing a women in front of me was buying loadsa bra's and i heard the cashier say to her that the purchase was final she couldnt return them etc. I was like oh no they never told me that and was a bit anooyed so exchanged it myself in the changing rooms
I hadnt actually worn it proper so it wasnt unhygenic though i knew they wouldve still said no.

Erm... Its touch and go. Id say its probably technically illegal.. but theyd never prosecute if it was clear that you had just swapped it. Besides does anyone know?

yes, in its technicality. taking something that you didnt pay for, but personally i wouldnt be praying for forgiveness for discretely exchanging bras.

As someone who has spent the last year studing criminal law as part of my Law degree I can tell you that it IS theft.

If you steal some money, and replace it with the same amount that too is theft.

well, technically no since you paid for it and didn't steal anything other than what you paid for...

probably just a poorly trained shop assistant...

She paid for it, then swapped it for another that she did not pay for. It is theft.

Technically it's theft

"Taking another's property with the intention of permanently depriving the other of it"

You didn't pay for it... and you're not gonna give it back

But bearing in mind the receipt would have no size on it nobody could prove it and I doubt anybody would really care anyway

It mya be theft.. But I dont think its anything wrong. I mean you were jsut returning something, and getting a size down.. I mean its the exact same just minus the snooty clerk who tries to make you feel guilty for wanting an exchange.
