Boyfriend slammed for refusing to pay $400 for girlfriend’s lost underwear
A boyfriend has been slammed online after refusing to pay to replace his girlfriend’s underwear, which he misplaced while doing their laundry.
The girlfriend wrote on Reddit to share her dilemma, explaining that the seven bras were worth over $400 and left in a separate bag at the laundromat.
According to a survey by Statista, 65% of American women spend less than $30 on each bra, and 46% spend between $16 and $30 per bra. For those with larger breasts, however, spending little money on a bra is often not an option.
As reported by Todaycompanies that sell bras at low prices tend to focus on keeping costs low, which means they don’t spend as much money and time on research and development to perfect the fit of the support -throat.
Additionally, these cheaper, more traditional stores tend not to cater to a wide range of sizes, which means those with larger breasts have to shop at more expensive specialty places.
“I wear a 32K bra. Not exactly a bra size you can just walk into Target and find,” the girlfriend wrote in her post. “More than that, I had finally gotten to the point where I knew what style of bras actually worked for me and these seven bras were the ones I specifically picked out because they fit me well and they suit me well.
“When I asked him to please replace them since he was the one who had lost them, he initially agreed, until I sent him links to each of the bras and the cost came up. amounted to nearly $400.”
The boyfriend told her he would only be happy to replace one or two, but she was spending “way too much” on bras. The girlfriend agreed to have only one or two replaced immediately and have the others replaced by him over time. “He said no it’s not really better,” she wrote.
According to the girlfriend, his sister also agreed with him and told him to buy cheaper bras instead.
Despite the support of her family, the girlfriend was buoyed by the support of Reddit users, who understood the difficulties of finding bras at a good price.
“Tell your boyfriend and his sister to hop to the mall and find some bras with a K cup. Tell them to check every store and not come back without one,” wrote one Redditor. “They could spend days searching the mall and not find a single bra in your size. Especially a K cup with a small band size.”
“Tell him you’ll puncture all his tires, but only pay to replace one,” another wrote. “Ask him how it would work for him. Then tell him he’s been spending too much time on the tyres.”
Another Redditor commented, “He lost the items, he pays to replace them. That’s how losing someone else’s stuff works. Also, no $400 for seven bras n It’s not that expensive at all. You’re not spending too much.”
“Well-fitting bras are very expensive,” wrote one Redditor. “Damn, the majority of women don’t even wear the right size because most stores don’t fit you well. He made a mistake, yes, but he left behind goods that cost over $400 and they were taken.
“It makes sense that you ask him to replace them, it really shows him that he has to be careful when doing laundry.”
