Local stores have just two types of bras. Either you go for the usual padded ones or if you want a little bit sensual touch, you have that big blue bag of Chinese stuff!

It is weird that all the lingerie stores happen to be in the rowdiest of places. Near the vegetable market or in the middle of everything! Why can’t they just make a tunnel straight into the shop!

Asking for a B…bb..Bra is in itself the biggest challenge. If asking for a condom embarrases men, yes this is our weak point too. We secretly wish for the shop to have a saleswoman to make things much easier.

6. Stealthy looks

7. The Harsh World

Ordeal doesn’t get over with just saying the final word. The crass looks by shopkeeper men and further questions about the size, preferences just make us hide behind the doors.

8. The size story
