My mom and sister were down for the weekend and so we did the most girly thing three girls can do in Cape Town, namely, shopping for underwear at a factory shop. In Saltriver, up Brickfield Road, on your right is my nirvana. This factory store is filled with mountains of underwear – from practical panties and bras to things you should only be wearing if your salary is going to be deposited directly into them.
They sell Wonderbras for R60 – R100 (keeping in mind you can pay up to about R400 for one in a normal store). That’s what I thought, no need to further convince you.
Here are some Tips:
- Know your Bra Size
There are no changing rooms and no returns so be sure to know your size. P.S this is why there is a photo of my sister trying on a bra over her clothes.
- Prepare to do Some Digging.
This is not the kind of place you can go in your lunch hour. You need time.
- Don’t bring any male with you.
Opposed to blatant boredom men seem to get really embarrassed being around soMuch underwear. Weird.
