6 Ways to Extend the Life of Your Favorite Bra
Finding the perfect bra means you’ll want it to last as long as possible. You can prolong the life of your 38G bras with proper care. It’s best not to wear the same bra two days in a row, so owning multiple bras will prevent the need to wash your bras frequently. Learning the proper care techniques will help your favorite bras retain their shape so you can wear them longer.

You finally found the perfect bra and want it to last forever. While forever may be a stretch, there are some ways to ensure that your best bras will last as long as possible. Bras are the hardest working garment in your wardrobe, so preserving them with delicate care is essential to get the most out of your investment.

Here are some simple ways to extend the life of your favorite intimates:

1. Prolong the Washing Process

Many wonder how often they should wash their bra. The answer depends on how many bras you own. You never want to wear the same bra two days in a row. Owning multiple bras will allow you toprolong the washing process. Letting your bra sit for a day allows the elasticity to bounce back. The more bras you have in your rotation, the easier it is to prolong the wash. So, if you have three 36F bras in your rotation, you can expect three to four wears before washing. You’ll need to wash more frequently during the hot, sweaty summer months.

2. Don’t Wash with Hot Water

Heat and elasticity don’t mix, so never wash your favorite bras in scalding hot water. Instead, opt for cold or lukewarm water. The stretch in the fabrics and elastics help ensure the proper fit of your bras, so keeping them away from heat sources during the washing process is essential. Using patience and cold water will help you enjoy the most longevity out of your favorite 34B bras (or whatever size you wear) collection.

3. Use a Gentle Detergent to Hand Wash

The ideal way to wash your bra is by filling your sink with cold or lukewarm water and adding a tiny amount of mild detergent. Next, submerge your bra and give it a good swish. Finally, let your bra soak in the solution for 15-20 minutes. Drain and rinse your bra thoroughly, ensuring all the detergent is rinsed out. Hand-washing is the preferred method of cleaning your bra, but if you’re short on time, you can place your intimates in a lingerie bag, select the gentle or hand-wash cycle, and machine-wash in cold water with a mild detergent.

4. Never Use the Dryer

The dryer emits significant heat, so you never want to place your bras into the dryer. It’s one thing to skimp on the hand-washing process by using a gentle cycle and machine-washing it, but never attempt to dry your bra using anything other than the air. If you wish to speed up the drying process, you can try using a towel to gently press the excess water out before you lay your bra flat to air dry. Never squeeze, twist, or wring your bra.

5. Store Your Bras Carefully

Contrary to popular belief, storing your bras shouldn’t include folding them in half and tucking one cup into the other. To retain the shape of your cherished 38G bras, lay them flat in a neatly organized drawer or designated spot. Avoid shoving too many bras into one drawer at a time. If your intimates drawer is narrow, consider placing your bras elsewhere to avoid them getting smashed or caught in your dresser drawer.

6. Invest in Quality Intimates

The higher quality the bra, the longer it’s likely to last. Invest in yourself by choosing an intimate’s brand that prioritizes quality and integrity in their products. Once you experience the difference that wearing a luxury, quality crafted, properly fitting bra, the process of caring for your favorite intimates won’t feel like a chore at all.
