Selling off used but otherwise new or mint-condition goods isn’t a practice that is unheard of. Not only can it be a great way to make a little bit of money on the side from things you no longer need around the house, but it also helps to promote a more circular economy and reduce wastage, while granting many items a second-lease of life for those who may have use for them.
Shop on e-commerce platform claims to sell used undergarments worn by 18-year-old student
With that said however, an anonymous 18-year-old Malaysian girl has apparently taken the prospect up a notch and started a small business selling used pieces of her undergarments on a popular e-commerce platform here, according to local Chinese portal Noodou. Only in this case, she advertised them as ‘original’ undergarments that came with its ‘original sweat scent’.
Simply put, the adolescent is selling intimates that she has worn but have not yet been washed or laundered. Based upon some screenshots obtained from her shop, the items appear to be shipping from Kuala Lumpur, but fails to mention any other specifics, which is likely by design.
Price range determined by how long items are worn
Understandably discreet given the nature of the products sold, one listing offers pieces of undergarments between a price range of RM60 to RM120, which is determined based upon how long a customer would like for the seller to wear the undergarments before mailing them out.
It is further specified that the undergarments are worn by the student during her gym sessions. However, the seller notes that due to demand, customers will have to be more patient while waiting on their orders to be shipped out.
For those with deeper pockets, the seller also offers another listing for lingerie that has been worn for the past 24 hours, selling at a whopping RM999. One customer who has allegedly made a purchase of the lingerie rated it at 5 stars. Lingerie aside, interested parties could also purchase used socks from the seller for between RM40 to RM75.
However, recent checks indicate that the shop has now since been removed by the e-commerce platform.
