AIBU to complain about my reindeer jumper?

I bought a lovely, festive reindeer jumper from Sainsbury's at the weekend, to wear to school for Christmas and at my book club Christmas get together tonight.

The prosecco flowed as did the jokes about my jumper. I hadn't noticed but the 2 of the six bells on the reindeers antlers were positioned, well I'm sure you can guess, at a certain level either side of my chest. There was much hilarity at this and a lot of tweaking, which is fine for an evening with a bunch of girls. But what do I do about school? I can't wear the jumper now with a straight face. Do I cut the bells off and reattach them at a less obvious place? Do I speak to Sainsbury's and maybe help someone else avoid a potentially embarrassing situation?

Not a great picture, but you get the idea.

Ahaha brilliant, ok you so need to wear that to school as if you never noticed.

Parents are people too, we all need a good laugh grin

That is, indeed, most unfortunate positioning. Although I am envious as to where it sits on your bosom. My nipple line is well below yours, as possibly was the Sainsburys buyer's.

Leave the bells and just own it! Free the nipple!

I'd move the bells to the top outer antler on each side.

Unless you can complain to Sainsbo's with a straight face I would do what blankmind suggested.

Excellent OP . I think you should wear it to school and act all "oh REALLY?" IF its pointed out .

I would do this but I hope you brazen it out.

ClarissaDarling Sun 27-Nov-16 08:41:11

Brazen it and let your jingle bells rock!!

Practice your shimmy and make everyone's day!

What an awesome jumper.

I think you need to cut those teeny tiny bells off

- and replace them with HUGE ones! your antlers are big enough to take them.

FromIbizaToTheNorfolkBroads Sun 27-Nov-16 09:01:02

YANBU I think you definitely need to remove those 2 bells ...... and replace them with tassels and then practice twirling them grin
