    Seemingly their guidelines allow bras but no underwear, i dont see why people would try selling it unless it was new with tag.
    Yep, I've just seen, all of the options are new only (new with tags, new without tags, new with defects) as per guidelines.

    Probably wouldn't be comfortable about the idea of a used bra (though I wouldn't buy a bra anyway as I'm not female ).

    No i dont think many women would, as it's likely they wont be in perfect condition and the wiring could be damaged but then some bras can be extorniate especially for the less common sizes:P

    Yeah underwear is where I draw the line, I d normally resort to primark for it but they don't always have my bra size which is frustrating.
    Yeah, I just can't imagine wearing underwear that someone else has already worn around. I know the feeling! I have to get all mine at M&S. Pain in the backside for sure

    I've ended up resorting to getting them for boux avenue recently but I agree it really is annoying, i'd never thought a 32d would be awkward to get cheap tbh:P

    I often buy second hand clothes, can't see an issue as long as they aren't stained/ really dirty I'd say most of my clothes are probably second hand - either passed down from relatives, bought in charity shops or from eBay. It's a lot cheaper, better for the environment (it's a form of recycling), supports a good cause (if from a charity shop), and means I can afford to buy branded stuff! Mind you, I'm always a bit more careful when buying stuff online to double check the seller has good feedback, and usually only buy branded clothes off eBay so I can be sure of the quality.

    Yeah, I wouldn't buy second hand underwear though, it just seems a bit icky...

    Yes if they are in good condition and I like them, why not.

    70% of my clothes are from charity shops. lmao.

    It is partly because I'm broke - but also because it's so much affordable and you can find so much nice stuff there. And the money goes to charity - which is a really nice cause, so not only are you buying something nice, it's going to a good cause. Searching for good stuff in thrifts & secondhand shops are also really fun

    I donate a lot of new clothes to charity (usually stuff that I regret buying or have never worn). Although I'm not sure I would purchase second hand clothing unless it was a vintage piece from a fashion house.
