I am also experiencing a itchy, red bump rash all over my breasts. It occurred after a recent purchase of three new Very Sexy Bras. Can you suggest a cure?
I recently got an underwire bra from Victoria's Secret also and thought I was just having an allergic reaction to the nickel in the wire but now I have red splotches across 6 inches of my chest and I haven't worn that bra for days. Anything else I can do?
i had this problem at the end of last year. i went to 4 different doctors and the only thing that stopped the rash was a steroid creme. i had no idea that this was associated with these bras. my breast still has scarring, not to mention scar tissue in my breast and in my nipple. i recommend seeing a doctor.
I just heard about this story on the news this morning. I have been experiencing rashes for months now and I honestly could not figure out what was wrong. I recently purchased about 5 new VS bras due to I changed sizes. My rash has been so bad that it spread down my stomach and the blisters would bleed. I have been wearing cotton sports bras under my clothes at work and the rash has started to go away. But I have scars under my breasts and on my chest from the scabs. I have been using Cortizone cream and it seems to be getting better.
I have been wearing the BODY BY VICTORIA bras for about 6 years now. I started getting a rash on my breasts and under my arms. I also have a cresent shaped itchy scar under each breast. All Itch so bad. I saw a dermatologist about 3 years ago. She said it was contact dermatitis and put me on a steroid cream. She thought is was probably my deodorant or my detergent. I have changed both many times without success. I had no idea the rash could have been coming from my bras all along. I have been embarrased to go sleeveless for 6 years. If I stop wearing their bras, maybe I can get my life back. Please let me know if a class action suit gets approved. I have a lot of bills that need reimbursed!
I just heard about this today from a family member and I was a bit sceptical about these accusations. Once I read over many comments online of women's reactions to the bras, I realized I have also been affected by these bras and needed to include my own story. I have only been wearing VS very sexy bras for about 3 years but last year I was having a bad skin rash under both my arms. I had patches under my arm pits that were as big as a fifty cent piece. After an embarrassing few months I decided to see the doctor because they would not go away and after using the prescribed steroid cream they finally went away. I had no idea this could have been from my bras. Now it makes sense that it took so long for them to disappear. Last month I purchased 4 new bras and have not had a reaction to them but if I do I know that I must see a doctor. I feel really bad for those women who have more serious reactions and hope they get help right away.
I have had an ongoing rash on both breast since 1993. It comes and goes and everytime I buy a new bra it seems to get worse. I usually buy Wacoal Bras that run about $65. ea. I am now thinking that the foam in the lining has some chemical agent that is causing this awful condition. Since these bras are now manufactured in China, I am curious if the manufacturer is using a product/chemical that is an irritant.
