Blue dye run onto white cami and bra - any solution?

I bought a Boden dress last week - white with big blue spots. Got caught in a sudden downpour of rain and my back and shoulders got soaked. The blue dye has stained the white cotton nursing vest I was wearing underneath - it has gone a kind of uneven pink colour. Worse still is the dark blue stains all over the bra, which is the only nursing bra I have that fits me! Will anything work to get rid of the dye or would it be worth dyeing the vest and bra blue so that at least they are all one colour?

You can get dye remover sachets from the supermarket or hardware store - Dylon Colour Run is one brand but I think there are a few different ones. You soak the clothes in it then wash them. I've had mixed results, but on some fabrics it was very effective.

Thanks, I'll give that a try and hope they're salvageable!

This happened to me recently, one of the toddlers t-shirts had blue stitching, and the dye ran it the wash.

Quite a few things were stained, but I rubbed them with the vanish soap bar (not sure of its proper name!) and rewashed, and the stains came out.
