What You’re Wearing Right Now Could Have Been Made In Prison

It’s obvious if you’re buying jeans made by a company called Prison Blues that perhaps inmates manufactured your clothing. Not so obvious if you’re wearing a bra from JC Penny’s.

Prison Blues was started in 1989 with inmates at Eastern Oregon Correctional Institute as a way of covering the cost of inmates’ housing as well as giving inmates some skills and work ethic. But JC Penny? According to TheRichest.com, JC Penny used to get some of their own JCP brand clothing from U.S. inmates manufacturing them.

If they’ve largely stopped the practice, the website claims many believe their lingerie is still produced this way. Then there’s Victoria Secret. Yes, Victoria’s Secret. They say this company has some of their items made by the hands of prisoners in U.S. correctional facilities.

Does that change your mind about that teddy your wife looks great in? Take our poll and share your thoughts below.
