HELP! My bra's killing me! Not the kind of cry one hear's in Lewis's lingerie department, but it's the basis of a court action against top (and bottom) underwear company Victoria's Secret. Disgruntled push-up bra-owners claim that the pounds 30 Angel Secret Embrace is bringing them out in painful welts and rashes due to anti-crease agent formaldehyde, a chemical Victoria's Secret denies using.
Women have had a difficult time coping with their natural assets: corsets, liberty bodices, pre-war brassieres that could encase a Dreadnought, later told by Women's Lib to hang loose and now the alleged threat of "toxic" bras. There's no hiding place, is there?
