How Often Do You Need to Wash Your Bra?

Freshly laundered bras, including Edith Lances bras.

According to the American Cleaning Institute, most bras can be worn 2-3 times before washing. And they advise bra wearers to give bras a rest day in between wearing to give the elastic a chance to regain its shape. Of course, this advice applies to regular, everyday bras (the ones you wear to work, school, out to dinner, or around town to run errands). Typically, sports bras worn for workout activities including running, Pilates, or Barre Fitness Classes should be washed after every use. T-shirts, tank tops, and camisoles should also get laundered after every wearing. At aBra4Me, we are not only interested in getting you into the best bras for your body shape, lifestyle, and unique needs. We also want your bras to last and perform beautifully for as long as possible.

 

So, here are some helpful tips on how to wash and care for your bras.

 

How to Wash and Store Your Bras from aBra4Me.com

 

Every bra wearer should invest in a laundry bag. These bags protect your delicate intimate apparel during the laundry process and prevent hooks from snagging and damaging other clothing. aBra4Me offers the perfect laundry bag from Fashion Forms for only $6.50 ($7.00 for the large size). Just click here for details.

Next, you should purchase a mild detergent, specially designed for delicate items. Normally, you should use the gentle cycle when washing lingerie items, but always check care labels for specific instructions. Most would say to hand wash but as working women we know there isn’t much time to do that. Finally, avoid tossing bras, camisoles, tanks, stockings, and other underwear items into the dryer. Too much heat can damage the elasticity and shape of your favorite intimate items. Just lay them out flat on a towel.

 

Then, once your items have air-dried, stack them in your drawers instead of hanging them. Unfortunately, hanging bras and stockings can cause them to stretch out. It is also helpful to line your drawers with fabric to avoid snagging lace, silk, or satin on rough wood edges. In addition, you may opt to put in a scented sachet to make your items smell extra fresh and lovely.

How long should a bra last?

How long should a bra last?

How long should a bra last??? That’s a question I get almost daily.You would think it would be an easy calculated answer but it is not.Sometimes you just know when you bra has had enough and needs to get tossed in the donation pile. Now you might think, what did she just say? YES, I said donation pile. I will hit on that topic at the end. 

The longevity of a bra is usually 6-8 months. Wacoal recommends after a 100 washings. A thru D cups might last a bit longer than DD-N cups. Now that depends on how many you have and how often you wear them. Also, you need to follow the washing instruction’s that was the topic of our last blog. 

Unlike me, most women have any where from 2 bras to 7. I hear a lot of woman say that they have one for everyday of the week. I have no idea how many I own but like most woman I gravitate to a chosen few. 

A good way to tell that your bra has lost it’s lifespan is when the elastic is stretched out. Are you getting enough support? Are your breasts jiggling as you walk.  Is the padding all clumped together and not smooth? Is it so loose that even the tightest hook doesn’t keep it in place? These are all good questions to consider. 

Don’t wait for the underwire's to pop out or getting holes it the cup. Then you waited too long. 

Nursing and sports bras won’t last that long. They get a lot more abuse from wear and stains.Make the investment in a good bra. You wouldn't think anything of it when you spend $30-$100 on a sweater or a pair of jeans that you might wear once a month. You wear a bra everyday and remember that sweater won’t look good if you are not wearing a good bra underneath. 

Now back to the donation part. Most women do not think of donating a used bra. Women’s shelters are in dyer need of undergarments. I’m not telling you to donate a torn or mangled bra but donate gently used ones and help a woman in need. 

Why Women Trust Edith Lances Bras for Comfortable, Well-Crafted Support

How To Properly Wash Your Bras

This might seem like a simple task but there are many ways to launder bras. The goal is to make them last and not break them while washing.

The number #1 rule would be to hand wash. Some woman wear them into the shower and wash them with body wash or shampoo. I don't think I have ever tried that but I suppose it would save some time.


For those of us who don't have time to hand wash, we suggest using a laundry bag. 

With our schedules this is the easiest way to keep the agitator in the washing machine from breaking your underwire, bending it or poking through. The washing machine can also stretch out bra without an underwire. Let's not forget the clumps you can get from padded bras. The mesh bag will keep the bra contained but while this is not fool proof, the odds are much better at saving your bra. Just clasp the back of the bra, put it in a mesh bag and throw it in the machine on a short gentle cycle. 

Any detergent will do but stay away from anything with bleach. 

Rule #2 is an absolute must. DO NOT throw your bra in the dryer. It's the worst thing you can do to lycra and every bra has lycra. Either hang to dry or lay them on top of the dryer. As the dryer is drying your clothes the heat rises and that's enough to dry a bra.

Most people wash their bras after 2 times of wear. Sports bras should get a cool rinse if you don't wash them after every use. Every person's body is different so it depends on your bra size and how much you perspire. 

We hope that helps the laundress in your household.

Animal prints will never go away. How many do you own?

Every girl should have something leopard print in her closet. Either a sweater, a jacket, a pair of shoes and defiantly a bra (or two). Leopard prints at one time showed a sign of elite status. Men hunted and used skins to show signs of wealth.

Leopar print - aBra4Me

The Royals and actors/actresses made leopard prints popular with dresses, coats and pants. I can remember as a kid watching First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy (whom I was named after) wearing that iconic leopard coat. Women, including my mother ran out to buy one.

Who can forget Rod Stewart running around the stage in those leopard pants?

Facebook fan asked this question:
"TE" In terms of color, is black much more popular than red? Do you think seasonal differences make that much difference in color selection?

What a great question! In the last 31 years of being in the intimate apparel business I can honestly say I’ve watched some major trends come and go. I can tell you in all those years nude and black bras have always remained the #1 selling colors. On the onset of each season either nude or black will have a surge along with red and animal prints. Other colors and prints make appearances but why have animal prints never become boring? We sell leopard prints all year long!


“We feel sexy and feminine when we wear animal prints which is why we were

so inspired to create our supportive leopard lace collection.”
