You probably got lied too- I'd try a burn test to make sure of its fiber content. Also, bleach ISN'T the best thing to use for lightening a bit of fabric- bleach is great at destroying fibers and being uneven, and will either leave synthetics completely unaffected or completely ruined. RIT colour/dye remover will probably give you better results.
