The bra they showed on the news said MIC . . .  anyone surprised?

Quote
Ritter's lawyers said they purchased the same bra types named in the suit and had them tested at a lab. The tests revealed that the bras contained formaldehyde, a chemical used in embalming. The lawyers believe Ritter may be allergic to formaldehyde.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

I totally forgot about this thread and went ahead and ordered one from the catalog.
I have old old VS bras and they were all made in Jordan.
Now they are all MIC


It came today.

It goes back for a return tomorrow.

I called them and said this bra had the most vile chemical smell I have ever come across.  I'm pretty sure it was formaldehyde.

Even before I opened the package I could smell it and it was also sealed in plastic!!!!!
According to customer service, the smell does not come out with washing and they have had some complaints.


Why is is still being sold?   Angry    Angry

I use one of the playtex  18 hour types and checked them out, they are made by Hanesbrands, and I did not see any references to MIC.
Maybe worth it to check it out? They are the most comfy type of bra I have ever worn and smell like clothing not chemicals.
For all the fancy VC prices, they should be able to come up with something that isn't made with garbage....yikes. VC cannot try to coast forever on it's past reputation of quality....when they lose all their customers maybe they will rethink where the products are made.....

I had a rash from a bra that when I read the story about the VS I checked and it was made in melaland. Went away after not wearing it anymore. Ones I have are Hanes and they are made in Honduras. I always look at the tag now and should they decide to remove where they are made, then I guess I can't buy that brand anymore and will look for ones not made in melaland.
