$100k. So it involved 8 VS items?

Victoria's Secret may not be cheap, but it's certainly one of the least expensive lingerie brands out there. Well-made lingerie items require many hours of painstaking work, often by hand, and if VS's prices actually reflected the labor involved to make the pieces (like higher end brands do), you would shiat yourself.

VS is for cheapskates. $100 might buy a thong at Agent Provocateur.

Oooh, I helped bust a scheme like that in the 80s when I worked for Macy's. Steal from location A, exchange at B, then return for a refund at C. Guarantee they had a couple of plants at the registers.

From Wikipedia
Manufacturing and environmental record
In 2006 the Financial Times reported that Victoria's Secret paid factory workers $7 per day to make bras in Thailand.The Huffington Post stated in 2011 that working conditions in factories producing Victoria's Secret items in Jordan were comparable to slave labor as a result of the Jordan-United States Free Trade Agreement, which retreated from standards established in the 1990s. In 2012, Victoria's Secret was manufacturing bras in the South Indian city of Guduvanchery.
After years of pressure from environmentalists, Victoria's Secret and a conservation group reached an agreement to make the catalog more environmentally friendly in 2006. Catalog wood pulp was required to contain 10 percent recycled paper and avoid source forests with woodland caribou habitats in Canada, unless certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. The company bought organic and fair trade-grown cotton to make some of its panties in 2012.


VS products may not be cheap to purchase but they are cheap to make.

Odd Bird: VS products may not be cheap to purchase but they are cheap to make.


I never claimed they paid their workers fairly; all lingerie is very labor intensive and not many brands ensure that their workers receive fair compensation for the hours they work. I believe all workers in the clothing industry deserve to be payed a hell of a lot more than they are currently and that when it comes to clothing in general, Americans have become far too comfortable paying prices that don't reflect the labor involved to make the garments.
