Several class action lawsuits have recently been filed against lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret due to personal injuries, some even permanent. The suits were filed after consumers complained of suffering uncomfortable symptoms including rashes, hives, and permanent scarring from bras purchased from the company.
Roberta Ritter, a self-described “longtime Victoria’s Secret shopper,” said that she had red welts that were hot to the touch, extremely inflamed, and blistered. She said that she suffered profuse itching that caused her to be unable to sleep.
“I was just utterly sick,” she said.
Ritter, 37, filed suit on May 14 over the Angels Secret Embrace and Very Sexy Extreme Me Push-Up bras she said she bought from the store.
However, Ritter, an Ohio resident, isn’t the only one making a claim against the lingerie mogul. Her attorneys say that they have been contacted by dozens of other women with similar claims.
