Bra lawsuit

Katerina Plew is suing Victoria's Secret for stealing her secret.

Plew claims the lingerie company stole her idea for hiding bra straps. Plew is a single, working mother of four, including triplets. She says she created the bra in 1999 after becoming frustrated that her bra straps were showing.

Plew received a patent on the bra in 2004. She claims officials of Victoria's Secret canceled a meeting with her, after she e-mailed them a mock-up of the bra. She's filed suit in a New York federal court. No comment yet from lawyers for Victoria's Secret.
