US law firm Parker Waichman Alonso has filed suit on behalf of a woman who allegedly suffered an adverse reaction after wearing undergarments/intimate apparel from Victoria's Secret.

The lawsuit has been filed in the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York this week.

It claims Victoria's Secret Stores misrepresented the safety of their undergarments/intimate apparel.

The woman, a resident of Kings County, New York, says she sustained personal injuries including hives, rashes and scarring after wearing the retailer's undergarments.

Spokespeople for Limited Brands were not immediately available to comment on the lawsuit.
