Now that's an eye-popping thong.
A 52-year-old California woman is suing lingerie giant Victoria's Secret, charging she was hit in the eye by a decorative metallic object that flew off a thong she was trying on.
Macrida Patterson, a traffic officer for the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, claims her cornea was severely damaged in the underwear mishap.
Patterson's lawyer, Jason Buccat, told thesmokinggun.com that a "design flaw" with the skimpy garment is to blame.
Patterson was hurt last May while trying on a "low-rise v-string," which is part of the Victoria's Secret "Sexy Little Thing" line, according to the suit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
She said the accident caused her to miss several days of work.
