Bra Bandits

Bra Bandits


I thought our readers might be interested in this recent New York Times article regarding an intellectual property lawsuit against Victoria's Secret: Saying She Patented Bra, L.I. Woman Goes to Court

Vicky, vicky, vicky.... let's have a little chat. It's bad enough that you manufacture your bras in third world countries where workers' rights are violated. On a more superficial level, you perpetuate an image of female sexuality that is not only unattainable, but also downright tacky. And now this- stealing from a Long Island paralegal (love her quotes, btw - I can't help but think of Amy Poehler in Bronx Beat!)

You can't come up with your own janky designs? Really? Ripping off a bra patent (allegedly) is so senior year of fashion school. I guess you're not paying your interns enough to churn out hot pink flowery foam contraptions at a reliable clip. Granted you're not the only ones borrowing ideas in the fashion world, but this sounds like a pretty clear cut case of bra banditry...or panty pillaging....plunge-padded plundering? Ok, I'll stop now.
