Durga Puja has started and it's time people are getting ready to celebrate the divine occasion with grace and elegance. Dressing up to their best is one of the essentials of a festival season, isn't it? Zivame, a lingerie brand promoted its products during Navratri asking women to buy their comfortable and good-fit bras to enjoy the festival without any inconvenience. They called in people to observe 'Durga Puja with Zivame' which didn't vibe well.

'Durga Puja with Zivame'

Zivame, in a series of posts, associated itself with Durga Puja and its festivities. In one of the posts, the brand termed their cotton bras "Best buddy for Dhunuchi Nach," a special dance dedicated to Goddess Durga and performed energetically symbolising one's surrender unto Her. The post referring to Dhunuchi Nach was captioned, "Keep cool, air, and breathe easy this Durga Puja with Zivame lingerie!"

In another promotional piece, they suggested some intimate wear they found a must for Navratri. It read, "This Navratri let’s indulge into feminine beauty with this gorgeous bra and saree shaper from Zivame. Elevate your style with confidence," followed by hashtags relating to Navratri and Durga Puja. WATCH:

These posts and ads resulted in an outrage on social media and attracted criticism. "This is an insult to the Hindu festival," said an X user reacting to the matter, while another found the creatives "Mocking Navratri culture." Soon after the 'Dhunuchi Naach' post by Zivame's Instagram handle faced online criticism, the brand pulled it down. Now, the respective post stands deleted from their official Instagram page.
