I know there is a bombshell bra at vs, I worked there when it launched. But vs doesn't own the word, there are several other companies that have their own "bombshell" so unless they specifically stated it was the vs bombshell I think it's on you not the seller.

Yes they really do, since I was a manager I got 2 for free, I'm a DD so I didn't need the padding at all but was told to wear it during launch week, that was an interesting look to say the least. I felt like I was always hitting people with my huge melons!

Yikes! Not sure I'd buy one myself and I am tiny- let alone for my DD. unless she was 30. LOL. My
Mom allowed a wee bit of padding but 2 flipping sizes? Yikes! Overkill. Looking back I am
So glad my mom really enforced bra control. Lol!!

Times have changed! Lol

This is what I was thinking too. I look at a lot of vintage dresses and the describe them as bombshell also. Unless she said this is a VS bombshell bra I would assume this is what happened. It sounds like a misunderstanding,unless you know she purposely misrepresented it.

I kind of think you should just leave it. I didn't even know that Victoria Secret has a "bombshell" bra..if I saw one described as such I would just think it meant sexy or a general style. If your daughter likes it just let her have itand then learn to go to tj maxx next time or ask about specific brand.

If it is in fact that color, they did describe it correctly. You may have assumed it was VS, but you could have asked.

Eta: I also found more that are tagged as bombshell

perhaps bombshell is referring to the cut? I have no idea here, just guessing
It's none of these .

I've decided to just leave it alone. She took the tags off yesterday and wore it (I had no idea so I'm assuming it doesn't work like the VS line). If she's happy, it's worth 20 bucks to me.

As for the comments about her age, she'll be 15 in just over 3 weeks. She wears make up, highlights her hair, and wears padded bras. I tell her she's more beautiful without it, but she likes it. She's also an honor student, was on the cheer team and tennis team, doesn't drink, smoke, or use drugs, and she talks to me about everything! I'd say if she wants me to buy her padded bras is the most of my worries with her...I'm doing a pretty good job!

Doesn't really encourage her to be happy with what she's got...plus I've never really been a fan of implying you have curves that you don't.
I guess this is where I got upset. We DO know that VS has a bombshell bra that adds 2 cup sizes and when I saw the listing with the description below, I did assume it was the VS line. It was my fault for not asking and I've decided to leave it alone. I still feel it was misleading.

Black and white polka dot miraculous add 2 cup size bra. NWT.

I wouldn't be that concerned about the price. If it was NWT and marked at $24, then listing it for $20 isn't unreasonable. Just because you can find a better deal somewhere else doesn't mean the seller should know that or have to owe you the difference. Just my opinion.
