USA: Playtex Recalls New Wonderbra, Manufacturing Defect
A new style of cleavage-enhancing bra made by lingerie specialists Playtex has been recalled due to a manufacturing fault.
The bra, called Wonderbra Deep Plunge Clearly Daring, went on sale in shops last month but has now been recalled after women complained that the strap connecting the cups snapped as soon as they put the garment on.
Wonderbra said the problem was due to a manufacturing defect that affected a small amount of the garments.
It added that the bra, which retails in stores for £22, was due to go back on sales in January 2005.
Playtex said: "These returns are as a result of tearing to the clear centre gore.
"While these reported cases are less than a handful, Wonderbra has taken the decision to recall the first batch as a precautionary measure."
