Shopper blasts Walmart for not letting her try on a bra because it would ‘touch her skin’
Tanya Thomas claims the employee who prevented her from trying on the bra called a supervisor on her
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Tanya Thomas, who goes by the handle @tanyathomas73 on TikTok, claims that after being denied access to the changing room, she was forced to try on a bra over her clothes, outside the room, where she could be seen by other shoppers.
She recalled the humiliating incident, saying, "So, you're not allowed to try on intimates at Walmart anymore in the fitting room 'cause it touches your skin. So, I'm forced to try this damn bra on outside of the fitting room, where everybody could see me, because it touches your skin."
She argued, "But they let me try on the shirt that also touched my skin, and the pants that also touched my a**, but they wouldn't let me try on this bra on my t*ts. Make it make sense."
Staffer called supervisor to prevent TikToker from trying on bra
Additionally, according to the TikToker, the employee who prevented her from trying on the bra called a supervisor on her.
The employee allegedly phoned her supervisor to report her, the TikToker claimed in her viral clip's text overlay.
Around 37,000 people have seen her video. The rule prohibiting clothing from contacting skin seemed to irk viewers just as much. "Please explain why females can't try on bras?" Butteryspellnola asked, tagging Walmart on her query, as reported by DailyDot.
Someone said they experienced fitting room issues of their own at Walmart
Other TikTok users chimed in with horror stories of their own. "The fitting room is never open anyways lol. I always try on in front of anyone. Idc they can't say nothing if they don't let me in," said one such shopper.
But what's truly odd is that, according to Thomas, the staffer informed her it was okay to try the bras on at home, where they would probably contact her skin, and that if they didn't fit, she could bring them back to return the merchandise.
"That's the part that left me laughing! She said I can take it home try it on & return the bras!" Thomas left the message in her video's comments section.
'Some girls don't shower'
But there was at least one user who agreed with the chain store's 'no-trying-on-underwear' rule. "Some girls don't even shower, even worse when they try the underwear and put it back out for someone else," they wrote.
To this comment, Thomas replied: "then why did they let me try on the other stuff that touches skin? why even have fitting rooms? lol."
