Lingerie

With a little bit of care you can get the best out of your lingerie for a long time. It is recommended to wash your bra every 3-4 wears.

Washing

Machine wash

Yes you can machine wash your bras, however doing these tips may allow for best results

  • Keep whites and colours separate.
  • Place your bra in a wash bag or if you don’t have one put it in a pillowcase. This means that it won’t get caught in other clothes. PS close the hooks beforehand will reduce snagging
  • Chose washing power or liquids that are made for delicates. Avoid softener as it can reduce the elasticity in your bra
  • Use a delicate cycle with a low spin cycle
  • Dry your bra flat. Do not tumble dry
  • If you have moulded cups reshape cups before drying them. Do not fold them as this will cause change to the cups

Storing your bra

If at all possible avoid putting your bras and other lingerie into one single drawer. Have one draw from you bras. Separate your moulded cup bras. If the cups are folded in on each other it will pucker and you will shorten the life of your bra. One way around this is to have dividers for your drawers to keep them organised.
