A Walmart customer SLAMS the retail giant for putting women’s underwear next to the MEN section and in front of the food – insisting that “girls should be able to buy bras and panties in private”
- Woman felt bras and panties were inappropriately displayed at a Walmart
- The Idaho resident took to TikTok to share her concerns
- She took issue with the proximity of underwear to the menswear and grocery sections
A Walmart customer has furiously slammed the retail giant for placing a range of bras and panties that were apparently marketed to young girls next to the menswear section of his local store.
Sasha Piton of Idaho Falls, Idaho took to TikTok to complain about the awkward positioning of two sections of clothing, further noting that these “bras and panties” were also easily visible from the megastore’s grocery aisle.
After stating that she came to Walmart to pick up a bralette she saw on another visit, Sasha, who passes @thesahapiton on the platform, couldn’t help but notice the strange proximities of products.
‘Here is the food section; here is the men’s section. Why are panties and bras right next to the food and men’s section? she implored in the 48-second video.

Sasha was convinced that tweens and teens should be able to buy bras and panties ‘in private’
‘I do not care. I am a grown woman, ”she said again.
“But I think if you’re a teenager who wants to look at these fun, cute, totally colorful panties, why do you have to do it next to the men’s section or next to the food section?”
“For girls between the ages of eight and 18, it’s a must to be able to buy their bras and panties privately,” she continued.
“And I get it, I get it’s a big old store. But I don’t think those cute little panties should be right across from the men’s section.
“These are definitely more teen-friendly, but still – go for it. Come on!’ she concludes.
It’s worth noting that the signage visible in the background of Sasha’s TikTok indicated that the products nearby fell under Walmart’s Joyspun label – which includes loungewear and lingerie actually aimed at adult women.
The megastore launched the womenswear brand in 2022, describing it in an ad at the time as “a refined, fresh and modern sleepwear and lingerie brand.”
The release further explicitly stated that Joyspun’s target market was “the women’s lingerie and sleepwear market”.
Although the brand of underwear Sasha touted was technically aimed at adult women — as opposed to girls, tweens, or teens — many agreed the juxtaposition was odd.
Many still took to the comments to echo TikToker’s concerns
Walmart has already launched several tween-specific fashion brands, such as Justice, which makes its retail debut in 2021.
Still, many agreed with Sasha’s assessment of the low-key, homey floor plan.
‘IT HAS ALWAYS DETERMINED ME! They need to move it,” one fumed.
“I’ve been saying that for years. why are they on the main street like that,” echoed another.
One woman shared: “Ammon is my store and I hate that it’s layout. Sometimes I see guys staring at women/girls staring and I had to tell them to keep moving,” – to which Sasha replied, “Horrifying! I’m glad you said something!!!’
Another added: “I’m 26 and I still feel uncomfortable shopping for my underwear in front of people, especially men.”
