Designer shops around Bahnhofstraße: "Clothes for people with Tourist Tumors" Zürich Shopping Tip by Kathrin_E

Zürich Shopping: 72 reviews and 109 photos


What to buy: THE DREADED TOURIST TUMOR is a serious syndrome that affects many travellers. It has first been medically described by VT member stamporama in this thread on the Miscellaneous Forum:

"Description: Abnormal square-shaped bulges that develop on the chest or belly when one travels.
Time of occurrence: Typically appears in shopping areas where both tourists and pickpockets abound.
Causes: Neck pouches hidden underneath clothes, which commonly contain wallets, passports, jewelry, cellphone, cameras, etc."

Good news: Designer shops in Zürich provide appropriate clothing for people who suffer from Tourist Tumors.
Dresses like this one are designed to give enough room to hide an average-sized handbag underneath.

What to pay: There was no price tag in the shop window, meaning that these dresses are not cheap...

Directions: Seen in a shop window in Poststrasse, off Paradeplatz
Theme: Women's Clothes

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
