I  also wear the IPEX under wire. I would also like to find info. on the lawsuit. Please let me know if your rashes continue . I have been fighting the rash for over two years, it has been a mess., And been costly getting test done and still no relief.  Rose

I too was affected by Victoria's Secret bras in Nov of 2008.  However my symptoms were slightly different.  I had a lot of itching but no rash.  However, I developed tenderness in both breasts, painful swelling under both armpits, and a sizeable lump in my right breast.  I was terrified because at the same time, my best friend's sister was diagnosed with breast cancer.  At my first doctor's visit, she diagnosed me with a reaction to the bra materials and told me to stop wearing the bra.  It was after this that I found out about all the other women experiencing problems.  I read up on formaldehyde toxicity and discovered that it collects in the lymph nodes. No wonder my armpits were so swollen.  Lab tests came back negative for any lump at all.  Ultimately I was diagnosed with swelling as a result of a reaction to the materials.

I recently purchased Victoria Secret Biofit Demi Uplift and just started wearing it and noticed a bad reaction to it . I woke yesterday with a very itchy unsightly dark rash under my breast and cleavage area. Both breast started to itch profusely. To ease some of the itchiness I have been applying cortisone cream and taking Benadryll. This experience has made me lack self confidence. Being an African American woman my concern is not only the itchy rash but the dark scarring and spotting it will leave under my breast. Has anyone contacted Victoria Secret? If so, has any action been taken to rectify the situation? I have made sure to document with photos. You all should so the same.

I have VS's padded push up bra and I started having severe reactions when I began using their clear, plastic straps. What I don't understand is why, after I wear my bra, the next day everything on my torso itches, even down my arms. I'm def having some kind of systemic reaction to their product. In fact, it lasts upwards of 5 days after I wear the bra. What the hell? Where are they getting their materials and what pray tell, are in then?
I too would like info on this class action suit. I'll join up in a heartbeat. VS is using something they shouldn't be. That's certain.
