    I heard this from one of my friend very recently about such a new concept, new to our circle, not sure if it has been in existence before.

    So two or more people, mostly similar weight/ height kinds, buy different set of clothes, use it once, swap the clothes with one another so that they don’t repeat clothes at work.
    In her office, there was an entry level person who does this very sincerely and they meet every 15 days and do this swap without fail, they are a group of 4 girls apparently. So all 4 girls gets to wear those clothes, I assume after which it will be returned to the owner or discarded.
    I heard my friend say that this person has never repeated her dress, and is very serious about not missing the swap date.

    Personally, I can’t even imagine myself doing it. I know many who won’t either. But I guess it depends on the individual, as long as you are ok with jus washing n wearing it, then go for it.

    This was done by most of the girls residing in my hostel. They would simply borrow dresses from each other, that way the girls would get to different dresses. For example A would borrow a dress from B, B might chose to borrow from A or C and so on.Some days they prefer to wear their own dress.However It was my personal choice to stay away from this concept and my friends happily accepted my decision.

    i think the main advantage of this is that we can come across different dresses other than the ones we usually come across..disadvantage i think is that hygiene issue..i am actually confused whetheri should go for it or not hehe

    Yes hygiene can be an issue.Some boys used to make fun of them that they wear without washing.

    Like i said, from what I heard, these people are very serious about these swaps n do it very sincerely. For them the end goal is to ‘not repeat the clothes’. Plus with limited finances, this is a good chance to do that. Maybe if one is used to the idea of borrowing a cousin’s or friend’s clothes from young, then this might work for them.
