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 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.

Buccat said the the injury Patterson suffered will affect her "the rest of her life."

The v-string is a variant to a G-string and is popular because it eliminates panty lines.

Victoria's Secret officials asked Patterson if they could examine the garment and the allegedly defective decorative piece that hit her, but she rejected their request on the advice of her attorney.
