If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard reports that Victoria’s Secret bras are toxic.
They’ve been several media stories and online posts claiming the store’s underwear contains formaldehyde.
However, the retailer has issued a “rumor control” statement denying the whole thing.
Victoria’s Secret does not add formaldehyde to its bras, and multiple, independent tests confirm that Victoria’s Secret bras are formaldehyde-free or contain only traces which are significantly lower than allowed by the most stringent textile guidelines in the world. Dermatologists and various authorities all confirm that even those individuals who are allergic to formaldehyde would not have a reaction at this low level, despite public claims by a Cleveland law firm.
Call me a cynic but I’m still not completely convinced.
Could they have launched their buy-one-bra-get-the-other-50%-off offer simply to get rid of the tainted bras?

They’ll last five to seven weeks, with some stores closing sooner.
According to AP reports, the inventory to be liquidated is worth about $250 million.
As we know, Steve & Barry’s filed for bankruptcy in July.
Despite statements that they’d remain open, they’re conceding to nationwide closure.
