Lingerie can cost a small fortune, so the last thing you want to do is spend all your precious money on beautiful, well-fitting underwear, only to find it falls apart a few months later.
Here are our top tips to care for your bras and keep them looking as good as new.
1. Hand wash your bras if possible
You can use a basin or your sink to do this. Simply fill with lukewarm water, a delicates detergent and soak for around 30 minutes. Gently rinse after soaking but don’t wring out or stretch them!
2. If you’re using a washing machine, invest in a lingerie bag!
Use a gentle cycle and be sure to wash them in a light load (not with heavy items such as jeans, jumpers or towels). Always pop them in a lingerie bag – this prevents them from being damaged. And always hang your bras to dry!
3. Never wear the same bra two days in a row
Rotating the bras you wear everyday will help them all last longer.
4. Store them correctly
Don’t invert the cups into each other, and don’t fold them in half either. The best way to store them is by laying them flat – like the draws in department stores like Victoria’s Secret.
