WHAT TYPES OF MATERIAL ARE THESE MADE FROM, PEOPLE ARE PROBABLY REACTING TO THE SPANDEX.
I know I found out the hard way...still suffering!
READ THE LABELS!!
I've had the worst rash develop since using the Body by Victoria Full Coverage Uplift bra. Red welts, very itchy, only on the sides and under my breasts, where the uplift pads are. I've stopped wereing the bra, any any bra for that matter since it hurts when I do now. My doctor e-mailed me the web-site with all the info re: other women with the same reaction. I contacted VS today, they've offered to rieumburse me for the bras and requested I send the bras back. I'm thinking I 'd like to have the bras looked at by a lab to research any traces of anything that might cause this reaction. I am 42 and have never in my life experienced this discomfort! It's awefull. I've tried Cortisone creams, Caladryl and now my Dr. is treating this as a fungal infection with Lotrimin. I't been a week, still no relief....When does this go away?
full coverage uplift bra body by victoria causes itchy welpy rash on breasts. i contacted company @ 1- 614- 577- 7111. i will be receiving a coupon for a replacement bra & a call from a company rep. sometime today. this bra says it is made in sri lanka. anyone have same sufferings?????? should i see my dr. for a stronger cream than hydracortisone, or not?
what?! that's terrible. i know i'm allergic to a certain fabric in pants (i don't know the name specficially - it's a shiny kind of material often used to make pinstripes) and it causes me to itch so badly I just stopped wearing pants like that. But daaaayum, if a rash like that presented on my breasts I'd freak the hell out. Thanks for the heads up!
I'm in Massachusetts (Boston area) and wanted to contact fellow rash sufferers to share advice and information. Are there any folks on this forum who are from the Massachusetts area and are interested? Please email me at ***@****
Me again....won't let me post my email address so please send me a message if you are interested---
I had the worst rash all over my chest and along my band line. i ended up breaking out in hives all over my body it got soo bad. I'm allergic to 3 different Victorias Secret bras. My doctor sent me to the hospital, they ended up putting me on steroidal lotions, 2 different ones- westcort cream and triamcinoline. they worked. My rash is back with a different bra now. Does anyone know a brand that won't do this???
I too had a horrid reaction to a bra I bought from Victorias secret. I went two months with pain, rash and cracking nipples. I didn't know what it was and tossed all my bras. I was a mess and went to the doctors. After a month of rash I noticed swelling and lumps on the side of my left breast. I went for a mamogram and they found cysts on that side and they had to be drained. I know that this is common with woman but they were so swollen from the bra I am convinced it had something to do with it. At one point I convinced myself I had pagents disese because of my nipples. I don't know what to do about all this.
I JUST STARTED BREAKING OUT IN READ BLOTCHY RAISED SPOTS ALL OVER MY BODY! I dont know what to do i took beynadrel, but its seems to be spreading more all the time. got it now on the palms of my hands. i havent eaten anything new and have been using the same detergents for months now. ny kids dont have it just me? could it be stress related? anybody go through this? contact me ***@****
OMG!!!! I thought I was going crazy with this itchy business on my back where the strap is. it comes and goes like a heat rash. I am itching right now. THROW THEM IN THE GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!
I have had not red rash or any irritation other then about a month ago I went to the doctors because I was experiencing a lump and major pain under my right arm in my lymph nodes. The pain was so intense I could not lift up my right are or even apply any pressure to it. My doctor put me on medication to help with the pain because I too have a cysts. I have to have it drianed. I'm thinking now that it was from my Victoria's Secret bra.
My daughter has been having these rashes and welts around her bra areas for some time now. I just heard about the Victoria Secret rashes and now we know for sure that it is the bra. That is all she wears. I just called them and I am waiting to hear back. Has anyone else done this?
Although the problem I had might different from yours, but it certainly put waste to my money.
I bought last year very sexy push up bra and since then I was not able to wear that bra again. Everytime I tired to wear it my underarms would hurt like hell and when I check if it is the wire or something else there's nothing evident.
I had the same issue as the woman currently suing them. Contact dermatitis, terrible itching rash, treatment with fungal creams. I stopped wearing bras in the house and I think the rash occurred when the bras get wet from sweat or rain or whatnot. Is there any contact info about the lawsuit so I can get reimbursed for the bras, the prescriptions, and the doctor?
I had a big blotchy rash on by back. It appeared after wearing a new Victoria Secret bra. I didn't realize it could be from a bra ( it wasn't around the bra area, it was on the back ) and my doctor couldn't detect the cause either. But now, when it appeared on the news, I think my rash could have been caused by that bra.
What do you guys think?
i too have had horrible reactions for 2 years now. i never knew what it was from, but now it all makes sense. I have been getting painful hives all over my chest and neck. i love victoria secrets though they really need to do something about this problem before they start loosing customers.
im scheduling an appointment with a dermotologist this week to get this checked out! i have had it for the last 6 months! after purchasing a new line of their bras!!! i have only wore their bras for 2 years and these new ones made me have such a horrible skin problem! painfull, itchy, red and large!!!!
I had a problem with very itchy nipples for several months. I was too embarrassed to talk to anyone about it. Finally after it had gone on for 7 months I decided to ask the doctor about it during a physical exam. He said it was probably an allergic reaction, and suggested I switch all my underclothes to 100% cotton. After seeing all this about the victoria's secret bras today, I went and pulled out my old bra, and sure enough it's the victoria's secret 'angels secret embrace'. Push up. My nipples also have pimple like scars on them. I'd also like more info on the lawsuit.
I have worn VS bras for years, a couple of years I started wearing the IPEX brand and developed this horrible rash.
Just like so many of you have described...the pain, itching and redness is insane!! I get some temporary relief using monistat cream and medicated powder. Unfortunately, I only have VS bras....now what??? Called the company rec'vd a case number but that doesn't help with finances you know...can't go braless I'm too big...ugh...
I too have been suffering with the itchy, red, swollen areas under my breasts. For me this rash has spread to various areas of my body. After seeing a dermatologist over a year ago, I was told it was severly dry skin and excema. Recently, my general practioner told me it was psoraisis and prescribed a steroidal cream Clobetasol Propionate. This cream cleared me up within about 2 days and one week later there is very little evidence of the rash remaining. I was glad to hear of the possible connection to VS bras. I have stopped wearing the VS bras, so time will tell. Perhaps now there will be relief to the possible cause of this irritating problem. Thanks to the media and others for making this problem public.
I don't wear Victoria's Secret bras, but I purchased 6 bras (Playtex and Just My Size) right before our New England cruise in September. While on the cruise, I developed a horrible rash - itchy, oozing, red, hot to the touch rash on my breasts, under them, and on one side. I still have it in November even after all kinds of benadryl ointment, heat rash meds, powders, you name it. It will almost go away after a few days of not wearing a bra (fortunately I work from home!) but when I go out to town and I come back home that evening, it is worse again. I haven't EVER had anything like this before. Now I am wondering if it IS the new bras. Has anyone else had this reaction to other brands???? I bought several different styles so now I don't know if it is all of them or just one or two causing the problem.
I called this morning and got my claim number.
I have had a severe rash all over my upper torso and down my arms for months now.. Every day I wear a VS bra and camisole under ALL my clothing and under my work uniforms. My bras and camisoles said they were made in India. Does anybody know how I can get rid of this rash and also how to join the lawsuit against VS. I have spent so much money on doctor appointments and different kinds of lotions and creams. Nothing is working! Please help me!!
I purchased a beige Victoria's secret bio fit bra about two months ago. After the second time I wore it, started itching on top of my breast non stopping. I even though it was the perfumed body wash that I used, but I have always used the same products and never had any allergic reaction. I washed the bra by hand and rinse it very well, wore it and again itchy and red spots, so I stopped using it. I also would like to know how to join the law suit against them. The rush went away because I used a cream I purchased on Mex. but I cannot wear my bra and there was lots of discomfort when I had the rush. I feel that as high price as the bra are $45 ea. we shouldn’t have to go through this.
