Removing Burnt Rubber Smell from a Bra?

I recently bought a really good bra from VS. It's one of those sports bras with padding. When I came home with it, I noticed it smelled like burnt rubber! The smell is so overpowering. I've washed it four times since then, tried spraying it, etc., but the smell doesn't seem to budge! I'd hate to have to chuck it. Any ideas? It smells the strongest at the padding.

You should return it immediately, even though you have washed it trying to remove the smell. The store should refund your payment or provide a store credit.

Try to use your hairdryer on the garment, hang it and carefulyl blow hot air not to burn it but around 'almost too hot to touch'. Warm and let cool, repeat three or four times, it should stop. Heat would help de-gass or cure rubber to loose it's odour quickly.

I soaked in vinegar and then washed with soap and cold water. I repeated this like 7 times....!! Smell just started going away
