Warning. Victoria’s Secret? Burning Bras

November 12, 2008 • Accessories


How about some formaldehyde with those C-cups? Talk about boobs on fire…a woman who purchased two Victoria’s Secret bras wound up covered with a very bad blistering rash. According to today’s NY Post Roberta Ritter’s lawsuit charges it was caused by formaldehyde in the bras! Ew.

Apparently Ritter, became ill from her new Angels Secret Embrace and Very Sexy Extreme Me Push-Up bras. Something doesn’t seem too sexy about a rash! The rash was "red hot to the touch, burning and itching," she said. She realized when she sued in May she was not suffering alone.

A lab test of Victoria’s Secret bras like hers came back positive for the presence of formaldehyde, the suit says.

"It may not be something [Victoria’s Secret] is specifying to be put in their bras, but somehow it’s making its way into the manufacturing process," fellow attorney Dawn Chmielewski told ABC News.
