Class action lawsuit - victoria secret bras

I also would like information on this class action lawsuit. I am always itchy, I have contributed it dry skin.  I have also had sores that have left me with scars.  Never thought and my Dr. never mentioned it could be my bra.  I am faithful to my VS body by Victoria!

I'm in IL and have the same problems with itchy rash under my breasts and I only use VS bras.  I use to wear VS body by Victoria, and have changed to the BioFit.  The rash is still there, sort of worse.  What do I do now?

Hello,
I have just heard about this rash from the VS bra. I too have the rash and I attributed it to dry skin. Now I know that it's the bra causing it. When I wore it in the summer I had thought that it was from sweat, now I know better and will, certainly, not wear that bra again. I still have welts on both sides of my chest and it itches something fierce.  Now what? How can we, women, who've had this problem get in touch with the lawyers who may be filing a class action suit against the company?
Response is appreciated.

Please, help me join the lawsuit.  I have struggled since Feb. to figure out what is wrong.  I never dreamed it could be the VS bra....  I cry when I take a shower due to the pain of all the blisters that have formed and open when showering,  The rash is not just around my bra area any more it has spread to all over.  I am ill most of the time.  I don't eat much because I will get sick, so I have lost weight not sure how much but I have gone from a size 20 to 12 and I could stand to loose 30 more (this is my silver lining).

Hello,

I've been having problems with VS bras for years. I stopped using their products for a year and a half and felt better. I recently gave in and purchased a Bio-fit bra and I'm having symptoms with it too. I also have a Body Full coverage bra that is very unsafe. The underwire is sticking out and poking my breasts! It's very sharp. I'm interested in pursuing this Class Action Suit as well. My e-mail address is ***@****.

I too would like to join this lawsuit. I've spent the last 8 months trying to figure out what I have. Even the dermatologist doesn't know what it is and nothing I've tried is getting rid of the rash. I'm religious to my VS bras and wear them everyday. Where do we go from here? Please get in touch with me too. Thank you.

I purchased my Angels secret bra this summer. I also too developed the itchy rash it was very painful. I could not wear a bra for days. I seeked medical attention from my family physican and he prescribed a cream which help a little.  I quit wearing this particular bra thinking that it was to heavy or was just maybe rubbing me. Wow, I am so glad this came out on GMA this morning. This information made me furious that I went through this aggavation and pain.  My question who do I complain too?

I have had that problem and that's why i stopped wearing them...

Wow I had no idea that people were going thru the same thing I went thru, with having rashes(red sensitivity) under my breast.  I put hydrocortisone on it, and it helped, but I thought it was the wire on the bra.  I ended up buying another bra.  I showed my boyfriend and mother the rash.  If it had not been for me telling them about this rash, they wouldn't have thought twice about the news segment on Good Morning America today! It was my mother who saw it and notified me that other women had the same reaction to the bra! Victoria Secret bra that is.

I also have had a rash around my breasts and upper abdomen with scarring and pigmentation changes for over two years. The itching was so severe at one point it was impossible to sleep. My dermatologist couldn't come up with a diagnosis.  The rash is very unsightly and it has been very depressing not to be able to find a way to get it to clear up.    I have been wearing the VS bras for several years as well, and realize the rash appeared shortly after the time I first bought the Ipex bras. I will stop wearing them immediately!  Please let me know who I can contact to make a formal complaint.

I love my VS bra, but I just can't wear it anymore with the rash! I thought I was crazy. I have had this long red rash under my right Breast and have been treating it with cortizone.  It has not helped and I am looking for some answers.  Please contact me directly if this class action goes anywhere. I am sick of feeling this way.  It is NOT a Very sexy LOOK!

I had the same problem. My rash lasted about 2-3 weeks and I was slathering Gold Bond in it all the time. I never did anything about it because I thought it was just me then I heard about the other women that were having the same problem. I bought the very sexy push up bra earlier this spring. Please let me know how I can get involved in this class action suit also.

I replace my bras every year in June for my birthday.  That is when the rash with the  itchy sores that itched so bad it was hard to not scratch.  Then they would bleed and stained my clothes, furniture, etc.   Then the depression started.  I thought it was from heat (which made it worse)  Went to 3 doctors, they just told me to use all unscented soaps etc.  I started using Aveeno and it cleared up a little bit.   I received my angel $ off coupon and ordered 3 more bras in Sept.  Now it's back.  There has to be something they are using in the process to cause this.  I talked to them on the phone last night and they are very concerned and are working hard to find out what is going on.  They are sending me something in the mail this week.    Reply back to me if you want more info.   Robyn

I am surprised to see that I am not the only one who has developed a rash from wearing my new Victoria's Secret Bras! I had welts that itched so bad, I couldn't sleep at night. I went to my doctor and was prescribed MethylPredniSolone. That helped a little but I haven't been able to wear a bra for the last 2 months. Every time I do, I start to get the rash again.

I have been experiencing intense itching also and could not figure out the cause.  I have routine mammograms yearly and nothing has shown up to determine the cause.  I too wear only Victoria Secret Bras but did not link them to the cause of my itching.  I hope that this is not the case but if it is I would also be interested in a class action lawsuit.

I myself went through the same thing last spring and thought that it was my own personal allergy until I heard that there were several other people going through this....I had welts all the way around my rib cage that burned and itched something fierce..they were hot to the touch, The welts sooned turned to blisters and from there became open sores...I was in agony for about a week could hardly wear a bra and had to wear loose fitting tops.  I returned the bra and told them why it was being returned the sales associate asked if I would like something else and I kindly declined and told them that due to the reaction that I had I would not be purchasing anything else from the store.

Hi, I just heard about this website on ABC News in chicago and I have been wearing Victoria Secret bras for about 5 years and have had these burning itching rashes as well. They are very uncomfortable and embarrassing. I have been to a doctor before but he was not sure of the cause. I'm very concerned about this. The rates for breast cancer are high enough without things like this.

Some users here are incredibly insensitive.  Everybody is entitled to their opinions. Although I do agree that some of these posts here are ridiculously. ( wires, etc) I too was a Victoria secret lover. I loved vs bras. Until I found out what the culprit of my deformed, blistered covered breast.

Two years ago, ( a few months after i bought my first vs bra, the embrace) I had a red bump under my left breast. I thought it could have been something cancerous, so I went to the doctors only to find out it wasn’t. He couldn’t figure out what it was, so he prescribed me medication and cream that made me sick.
I figured it’s no big deal, until the blisters bopped, and literally had an open hole on my breast. It bleeds for several days. And is scared for good now.  2 years later, my left breast is completely covered with many blisters, and mind you, the blisters are only on ONE side of the breast, right underneath. It is only in that area, and no where else in my body.

I was scared to tell my family and friends. I thought it was a personal issue, and wondered what I’ve done wrong, not only has it been lowering my self esteem, it caused me stressed..

What made me angry was to find that VS didn’t bother warning their consumers knowing what had happened. They disregard it to make a quick buck, although people’s lives might have been on the line.

Can anybody tell me how to get rid of the blisters and welts? What type of medication did you use? Any otc medication? Please help.
