Bra's on Ebay - would you or wouldn't you?

(18 Posts)

I have a load of nice bras that are totally the wrong size (thanks MN for pointing that out here hmm grin

I have weeded out the ones that look worn, but have about 10 that are good brands and have only been lightly worn, they look almost brand new.

Question is, if I put them on Ebay, am I going to get a load of strange people asking unsavoury questions?

I'd like to get some cash for them but if it means fielding questions from a load of pervs I'd rather hand them to the local charity shop.

Has anyone here had experience of this?

I wouldn't buy them but the will probably sell.
Some people will buy anything on eBay.

And the unsavoury people are more likely to be attracted to the ones that look worn not ones that look almost new.

How about swapping them on here for your new size.
I have seen a few bra swap posts.

I've searched but I can't find them! Where are they Face?

I have millions of badly fitting but nearly new bras. I just keep them and pray I might fit them one day with the help of a skilled surgeon

Personally I wouldn't buy a used bra... I don't think you'd get pervs though, they'd be looking at used undercrackers surely?

You could always list all the pervy messages on here for our amusement

Can you sell used underwear on Ebay ?

FaceLikeAPickledOnion Tue 05-Mar-13 21:53:45

Just found a few swapsies on the link you've posted smile
But I'm sure there's more on other boob related threads

FaceLikeAPickledOnion Tue 05-Mar-13 21:55:54

I think you can bike, I've definitely seen used nursing bras on there

oopslateagain Tue 05-Mar-13 22:04:25

Thanks Face I gave up about 800 posts in!

I might list one or two to see what happens.

And yes, there are used bra's on Ebay - 6,893 at the moment! grin

I would definitely try. Just make sure you stress that they have been freshly washed. wink

Include a close up of the label to show how new and crisp it is.

Actually, that reminds me that dd has some pretty green teenage ones from M&S that she insisted she liked... but I have never seen in the washing basket. I'm sure they will be too small for her now... or maybe just smelly and black! hmm

I should remember to check with her before the next Free Listing Weekend!

Bundles of bras seem to fetch a few £ but singley bras seem to only have 1 or 2 bids if at all. Maybe bundle them up ?

I have bougth bras on ebay. Most are brand new or at least look it with a nice crisp label which shows it hasn't been worn much. I did get a couple that were vile, I just put it down to experience and binned them!

I buy bras on ebay, but new ones when ebay sellers must get them as 'clearance' from the manufacturers.

In fact I bought one last night and did see some listings for used ones. I would not buy used ones personally, but am sure that if someone is strapped for cash and perhaps just lost/gained weight but no money for different sized clothes/bras etc, would buy them.

I'd put them on as one or two bundles, start at 99p, that way someone might get a few bras for a few quid plus postage. One bra on its own plus postage is the price of a new one from tesco or George.

Alternatively, charity shops will take them.

inspired by this thread have stuck a few on for 99p all new but never worn. will see if they sell otherwise off to the clothing bank.
