It makes me sick to see property rights violated like this! If they had an ounce, nay, a milligram of decency, they'd get a job and EARN those bras!

Sorry, just had to get that off my chest. **ba-dump tchsssss**

The answer is obvious. You sell them to another store, one with an unscrupolous owner/manager who doesn't mind buying stolen goods.

Clothes get stolen in large amounts from stores all the time.

Shrinkage? (4.46 / 15) (#6)

Anyone else experience shrinkage in a lingerie store? I typically experience the opposite phenomenon.

EBaying bras.... (4.00 / 3) (#7)
by Elkor on Wed Aug 22, 2001 at 08:24:47 AM EST

Actually, I wouldn't rule out the EBay opportunity.

The thieves could either be waiting a little while, or have a cohort in another city/state/country posting the auctions. I don't think there is an ebay rule that goods must ship from the same location the seller is at.

Not that I want to give anyone any ideas, mind. :) I am sure we are all law-abiding citizens here on k5.

Regards,
Elkor

1000 bras in 2 shopping bags?! (4.75 / 4) (#8)
by erlando on Wed Aug 22, 2001 at 08:36:19 AM EST

Because the lingerie is not particularly substantial, the 1,000 bras could have been taken from the store in two large shopping bags

Ehm.. They'd have to be very unsubstantial to fit into two shopping bags.. I mean.. A thousand?! Either that or we are dealing with some large shopping bags here.. And I wonder if the clerks wouldn't have noticed? :o)

One thing's for sure.. We're not talking lingerie for Lara Croft here.. ;o)

Nothing to see here...

On the surface I'd totally agree with you. However the bras were stolen from the boxes that they're shipped in. They might have been just some lacy little things tightly packed . . . although even then it does seem like a lot of bras.

But I wouldn't know anything about that . . . unless you're look'n for some bras, cheap, no questions asked :-)

for all you know, it could've been some women who stole the bras...think about it this way, someone stole 1000 bras valued at $35K, which means the bras were an avg of $35 each.

Charging $35 for what amounts to a piece of lace, two straps and an underwire is just as nearly criminal, especially since most of that money probably goes to busty Frederica or or Tyra or whoever is the model of the month in the catalog. Imagine the uproar at a guy spending $35 for a cup and strap. Then again, the companies who make those straps don't offer beefcake catalogs or late night commercials.

Perhaps what we really need is a new feminism...It will focus on something that liberal feminism has failed to do--instill a sense of dignity, honor and s

The sexism allusion is just plain wrong; the "fashion" industry screws everyone as hard as it can, because that's how it makes money. Also, note that this was a Victoria's Secret store that got ripped off. Not a Wal-Mart or even just a department store. When you go to specialty shops, you usually pay more - even if you're a guy!

I think we need a new phrase: Free as in Bras. Blows the hell out of "warezing," now doesn't it?

1) Thief makes off with 1000 bras from victoria secret.

2) Thief goes back for 75 more bras.

3) Local paper puts article about bizarre robbery on website.

4) Article finds it's way to MLP on K5.

4) I read the article.

5) Oh, the theft took place in Rochester, MN. I lived there for 8 months nearly 2 years ago. I now live almost 600 miles away and haven't been back there since moving.

6) Oh, near the end of the article it is mentioned that this particular victoria secret is located in the Apache Mall.

7) I know where that is...

8) Hey, I bought lingerie from that victoria secret!

Does anybody want to run the odds on that for me? I am seriously bemused by all this... That was the first time I'd ever bought lingerie. Get your mind out of the gutter! It was for my girlfriend. I can't wait to get home and tell her that the 600-mile-distant store that I bought lingerie from for her two years ago has had 1075 bras stolen.

Maybe someone from IBM Rochester lifted them and is planning on distributing them to their department as Christmas gifts! I wonder if they were all blue bras. Nothing like hometown news on the front page!

then it hit me

i'm *not* the most pathetic person on the planet. somebody else is! thank god** there's still hope for me yet!

They want bras.... (5.00 / 2) (#24)

Try here:

- Big Giant Bra Ball http://www.nicolinosbraball.com/

- Bra Ball http://www.braball.com/

Their "disagreement" is pretty funny.

The Big Giant Bra Ball was in my town for several days, about a month ago, I shot over 100 images of it, the looks it would get were great.
