    A Charleston attorney helping an aspiring Greenville model sue the Victoria’s Secret lingerie company over claims that a defective bra seriously cut one of her breasts said today that a description in the lawsuit of the depth of her wound was erroneous and that a new version of the suit was filed today to correct the error.
    .....
    An amended complaint reflects that the wound was "3 inches x 1/4 inch deep, resulting in scarring," according to the latest version of the lawsuit filed today.
    .....
    In February 2005, Lang worked at Alegis Group in Greenville and was pursuing a career in modeling, according to the lawsuit. On Jan. 30, 2005, Lang bought a bra from the Victoria's Secret located at Haywood Mall, and 13 days later, at about 5 a.m., she was in her apartment and began to feel "discomfort in her breast caused by the brassiere" and tried to remove the bra, according to the complaint.

    "When attempting to remove the brassiere in order to alleviate the discomfort, the brassiere malfunctioned, lacerating the plaintiff's chest and left breast, nearly six inches wide and six inches deep," the complaint alleges. The lawsuit does not specify how the injury occurred. Hughey told GreenvilleOnline.com today that the bra "broke and the wire came through and lacerated her breast."

    The Night the Bra Attacked!

    Shoot, I've had underwires pop through the cloth in the middle of church where I wanted to scream in agony...but I didn't. I should have let it pierce me and then sued. Darn it!

    I'll go ahead and ask for pictures of the injury and save Adnoid some time.

    6 inches wide and 6 inches deep?

    Good grief!

    Which VS bra was this?
    Did it blow up or what?

    That's a heck of an injury from a bra!

    I think this is clearly an over dramatization ..
    I mean who is going to leave the bra on that long??

    Not to mention that the underwires have little plastic tips on the end of the wires in case of this.

    Oh that's a big difference.

    She's just after some money. I can't believe a lawyer actually took this complaint.
