Is the bottom about to drop out of the Saudi lingerie industry?
It would be bizarre in any country to find that its lingerie shops are staffed entirely by men.
But in Saudi Arabia – an ultra-conservative nation where unmarried men and women cannot even be alone in a room together if they are not related – it is strange in the extreme.
Women, forced to negotiate their most intimate of purchases with male strangers, call the situation appalling and are demanding the system be changed.
Oh, come on. The male clerks are very helpful when you want a new Wahhabustier or brashariere. And the edible thongs are strictly halal.
