Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Go Shopping: Victoria's Secret Accused of Formaldehyde in Bras?

Say it isn’t so Joe– or maybe we should ask Giselle?
According to ABC.com and ABC News Bureau’s Andrea Canning, Jen Pereira, Mariecar Frias, and Imaeyen Ibanga reported on this story online and on tv.
Roberta Ritter talked on the video (linked below) about the tests done on a variety of Angels Secret Embrace and Very Sexy Extreme Me Push-Up bras purchased from Victoria’s Secret stores show the substance to be in the bra.
This is the story from ABC.com
The secret is out for one of the world’s most recognizable lingerie brands, according to a potential class action lawsuit in which consumers claim they’ve experienced very uncomfortable symptoms, like rashes, hives and permanent scarring from Victoria’s Secret bras.

Attorneys are filing a class action lawsuit against the lingerie company.
“I had the welts … very red, hot to the touch, extremely inflamed, blistery. It itched profusely,” said Roberta Ritter, who describes herself as a longtime Victoria’s Secret shopper. “I couldn’t sleep, waking up itching.
“I was just utterly sick,” she added.

Ritter, 37, filed a lawsuit against the company May 14 in relation to the Angels Secret Embrace and Very Sexy Extreme Me Push-Up bras she said she purchased.

Victoria’s Secret says they never have manufactured bras with formaldehyde. Given the timing on this claim, it’s going to distract and detract from the sales of Victoria’s Very Sexy and Angels bra lines.
Buyer beware!
