Bought a Triumph bra that I'm sure is fake/ WWYD?

it seems odd to believe someone would possibly fake bras, but then again, bras with a good label aren't cheap and it's probably easy to fake. Would people really bother to do this?
I've worn Triumph for about 15 years so I know what the labels look like.. but this is the first one I've bought that is seamless. Normally it says Triumph on it like an embroidered logo bit.. and also says Triumph on the care label. There is just one care label with nothing to say it's Triumph
It IS the bra in the listing photo and the description is correct . But I just don't trust it. It looks faked to me. And I looked at their feedback and someone else says they think they were sold a fake and has dodgy sewn in labels etc..
It's not what listing says, that's wrong..it's what it's omitted...
Should I ask for a refund? I can't really open a case as 'not as described' can I? As it was. It just didn't point out that it doesn't say Triumph on the tag.
I don't want to pay for return post either.
It wasnt sold as a second either , where you might expect labels to be cut out. It has label but nothing whatsoever to say it's Triumph

I'm not querying lack of tags, as it was sold as new without tags. And it is new.
It's just that it could be any old bra

I would contact triumph. Put it on their Facebook page and ask them if it's fake.

have you messaged the seller?

My new triumph bra (from the triumph shop) doesn't have a care or size label in it at all if that helps?

no not messaged yet
That's interesting Tanaqui... knowing that fact, I guess they don't have to prove it to me ? Not sure what to do now

Factory seconds maybe?

am wondering that but they should state so

Contact Trading Standards- they will be able to whether it is fake add if it is they will open a case against the seller. It happened to me with a fake phone and they said they are tasked with identifying loads of different fake goods including things you would assume conmen wouldn't bother faking.
