Victoria Secret and their Knock Off Lawsuit

November 12, 2012 under News

Recently Victoria Secret was sued by their former hosiery supplier – Zephyrs.  They stopped buying from them, but continued to use photos of their products on packaging of other hosiery that was of lower quality.

The only thing that changed was that the label now read “made in Canada” rather than “made in Italy”.  Zephyrs feels that Victoria Secret presented a Canadian knock off as if it was that high quality Italian brand that they originally worked with.

This lawsuit was processed in Columbus, Ohio to claim false advertising and fraud.  Maybe it’s a little off topic, but for me lately a lot of things were revolving around that city!  I even ended up there in August – exactly the month when they had that case submitted.

Styles that are being recalled are Lace Top Fish Net Stockings, Fish Net Thigh-Highs With Backseam, and Signature Stripe Thigh-High With Bows.  If you ever tried those, I’d love to hear from you!

Below you can see some images that show you the differences in the welt of the stockings.

Top 10 Myths about Pantyhose – can you help me with this list?

October 15, 2012 under News

I’d like to create a list of what kind of things people say about pantyhose.  Some of this applies, but to cheap brands and when you are not wearing your size!  Can you help me with this list?

1) Falls down between the legs

2) Unfashionable

3) Obsolete

4) Over-priced

5) Not Healthy

6) Itchy

7) Not for youth

8) Causes pain

9) Not for cold weather

10) Not for warm weather

Please help me to improve this and I’ll put it on a separate page for readers to see at all times.  I would also like to include an explanation to why this is not true.  (ex. different denier for different weather)

update – this list is now published under A Dozen Myths
