Several complaints have recently surfaced and lawsuits are being filed as a result of women developing rashes and hives after wearing Victoria’s Secret’s bras. The rashes have resulted in extreme pain, inflammation and can leave scars. It is believed that formaldehyde is being used in the bras and causing the reaction.
Victoria’s Secret has acknowledged they have received complaints, but the bras are still being sold. The bras that are causing the reactions are believed to include the Angels Secret Embrace bra and the Very Sexy Extreme Push-Up bra, though others may also cause a reaction.
If you believe you have side effects from wearing a Victoria’s Secret bra you should seek medical attention. Do not dispose of the bra. You should also contact an attorney to find out what your legal rights are and if you have a potential claim.
