Is there latex in clothing material, for example spandex, lycra, nylon??

I have recently discovered I have a latex allergy. I bought myself a new bra on the weekend and now I have a rash and I'm itchy wherever my bra touches skin... could it be that the material in the bra has latex?

    Most "stretchy" clothing is woven with threads that use a latex rubber core, around which is wrapped cotton (or silk, rayon, nylon, etc) thread to cover the latex rubber core.

    You probably have little to worry about with that because the latex is wrapped inside the core of the fabric and doesn't usually touch your skin...unless the fabric becomes so worn through that you can begin to see the latex threads coming out of it.

    Its fine, dont worry yourself about it. Its a little less common for women to have fetishes as men (not sure why) but there are plenty of girls out there who do have fetishes for various things - latex, silk, leather and often spandex and pantyhose too, so you're not alone with this. Its something that you have probably developed since you were very young so its a part of you and you should accept it without being embarrassed. Like other have said, fetishes are completely fine as long as they don't become harmful or take over your life, so just learn to live with your love of spandex and pantyhose and enjoy it. Although you probably shouldn't tell everyone about it, I think a lot of guys will find it quite a turn on you loving this kind of thing, I certainly do! Good luck with it and stop worrying, its totally fine

    Yes, many clothes have man-made fibres in them. When you buy any new clothing, check the label careflly as it will always state what materials it is made from.
