My journey to Cottonique was a windy one. For years, I had experienced discomfort and irritation from my bras, socks, waist bands, and certain clothing. I always figured I just had “bad skin.” Then when I gave birth to my first child, I began using a pumping bra multiple times a day. Turns out pumping bras need a lot of elasticity and are therefore constructed with a very high blend of spandex which it turned out my skin was very unhappy about. When I showed the rash to my uncle, a contact dermatitis expert, he said 1) wow, I’ve never seen a rash quite like that (never good to surprise an expert), and 2) yeahhh, you have a spandex allergy. Thankfully, he recommended Cottonique and I’ve never looked back. I completely cleaned out my closet of spandex and replaced what I could with Cottonique and have been the happiest of customers ever since. Thank you for making my life a lot less itchy!

I have always had a latex allergy, even though I didn’t realize what it was until I was in my fifties and started being allergic to “latex” foods like bananas, avocados, and pineapple. Cottonique products, including your bras, panties, and drawstring lounging pants have allowed me to be able to dress comfortably. I will continue to purchase your products, as I trust them to be organic and free of latex and harsh dyes.

Finding bras has always been a nightmare for me, but when I developed contact allergies to synthetic materials, it was even worse. I had to say goodbye to all of my current bras but I felt uncomfortable walking around without a bra. But then Cottonique came to my rescue. I now wear their bras exclusively as it is the one company that provides support for my size and does not cause an allergic reaction. So now I can feel comfortable being myself again. I'm free to be me.
Adding a little creativity, I am still able to be stylish day-to-day as well. Now that my husband and I have discovered that my son also has this allergy, we are able to order underwear that is safe for him. This was the first pair of underwear that he would actually put on by himself because he wouldn't have a reaction to it. He tells me "Momma, I can breathe really well," when he wears it.
I have been wearing the side tie bras from Cottonique for years now and love them! They allow me to button and tie it in the front so there is no discomfort trying to reach in the back. And they are always just the right tightness because I am the one who adjusts it, not like the bras of the past that would always bind. I love, love these bras, so well designed, thank you Cottonique!!!

I have a severe formaldehyde allergy, which causes me to break out in hives. Any time I encountered humidity, rain, or sweat, the formaldehyde in my clothing would leach into my skin causing rashes on my torso, limbs, and feet. Anti-itch creams and medications didn't help. It was incredibly embarrassing and uncomfortable and made me avoid outside social gatherings as well as curtailed my enjoyment of the beautiful summer weather.
Ever since I found Cottonique products, life has been so much easier. I started off with Cottonique's white shirts and pants, and when they added underclothes and socks, I was over-joyed because I could wear an entire outfit of chemical-free clothing! The addition of black and gray clothing made a wonderful product just that much more versatile. Cottonique has given me my summers back.

After I had figured out that I had a latex/spandex allergy I searched and searched to find somewhere where I could buy all cotton products. I was referred to Allergy Canada from someone and was so happy that they sold Cottonique products. My first order was socks. I had not worn socks for 2 years.
Not so great when you live in Canada in the cold winters but it was better than the reactions I was having to the spandex in the socks. I then ordered bras, as I was reacting to the materials and elastics in regular bras. What a relief it was, to finally be comfortable and not have itching, burning and prickly skin! Thank you!

I have an inherited Latex allergy plus extremely fragile skin, while also very sensitive to dyes, chemicals, latex-similar products and slightly rough fabrics/tags including lace and “stuffing”. I found Cottonique during a web research several years ago and have been extremely pleased with their well-fitting and comfortable bras. I have regularly recommended them to others. I wished Cottonique were around in the 1960’s, as that would have made me a really long time customer! Like my mother, I had been using a thick camisole up until that time which did not provide any support.

I have a tumor around a hip appliance that causes horrific swelling. Before Cottonique, I had to try and make my own "knickers." But now I can actually purchase a well-made garment that feels comfortable no matter how much the swelling.
I also have a metal allergy and find many underwire bras actually cause my skin to blister. Cottonique solves that problem. Because the bras are so comfortable and healthy for the breast, I often wear them to bed to keep breast tissue in place to prevent sagging. They also keep the skin under the breast dry preventing a host of skin problems. And the bras do not contain all the carcinogenic chemicals found in the fabric of most bras. If women would do their research and wear Cottonique, we could lower the rate of breast cancer, no doubt.
