I'm not a VS fan either, I don't care for the quality of their bras and their sales people can't fit bras to save their life. Getting the right fit is so important. I also find the whole Pink line really tacky, especially the terry cloth stuff and the things with writing across the bottom. Ugh. Anyway. To be honest this all just doesn't bother me at all. Like anything, if people don't want this product for themselves, their child, or their pet, don't buy it. Easy. All of the outrage and posturing and whatnot just seems so silly, to me.
I only wear strapless bras and VS ones hold up very well for me. I only wash them on gentle cycle and air dry. Never had an issue. And Melissa, I don't have much to "fit" so I don't need much help there, lol.
I wouldn't boycott, even though I don't agree with their marketing strategies. I would never let my daughter buy any panites that I thought were innapropriate, so it all comes down to the personal choices you make for your children.
