How to Care for your Bra

Hello Ladies,

For today’s blog, we wanted to share with you our suggested care instructions, which both of us have used for years with positive results.  To prolong the life of your bra, we recommend all merchandise be gently cleaned and dried after every couple wears.  Perfumes, lotions, perspiration, and even body chemistry can cause the straps and band to lose elasticity over time.

Hand Wash (Preferred Method)

Fill sink with cool water and mild detergent then lightly agitate the water for no more than five minutes.  Rinse the bra with cold water and squeeze excess water, but do not wring.  Blot dry with a towel.

Machine Wash

Using a lingerie bag, wash intimates on the delicate cycle.  Before washing, snap all hook and eye closures and check that bras are not tangled together in the bag.

Dry Clean

Some bras are not designed to be hand or machine washed.  If the manufacturer recommends dry cleaning the garment, follow their advice.

Regardless of whether you hand or machine wash, never place bras in the dryer.  The heat will destroy the elasticity of the bra, cause shrinkage, wire distortion, and fraying.  After washing, reshape the bra and either allow the bra to hang dry or dry flat on a towel.  Keep bras away from heaters, radiators, and sunshine to prevent the fading of colors and discoloration of whites.

If you follow these instructions, your bra will truly last!
