'You wear it, you own it!' Retailer cracks down on 'wardrobing'

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

You wear it, you own it!  That's the word from Bloomingdale's as the high-end retail fashion chain cracks down on the practice of ‘wardrobing.'

Bloomingdale's is phasing in new hard-to-hide plastic tags called B-tags. Unlike most tags, these are attached in visible spots on dresses. Once they're removed from the dress, the customer will not be able to return the clothing.

This new policy applies to dresses priced at more than $150.

Which brings us to Good Day Atlanta's Hot Topic question: Have you have worn clothing and then returned it? Post your answer to the FOX 5 Atlanta Facebook page and join the discussion!
