How To Take Care of Your New Lingerie
Handwash you say? Who has time for that?
Hand washing your bra is super easy and quick, and the results are obvious: bras last longer, stretch out less, and maintain a more vibrant appearance.
Follow our simple guide below and suds your way to longer lasting lingerie!
How should I wash my bra?
Really, honestly, you just shouldn’t put it in the washing machine.
What you should do is fill a sink with lukewarm water and a bit of mild soap (see our soap recommendations below!) and leave your bras to soak for about 15 minutes. Gently scrub around the centre gore (the part that sits in between your breasts) and the band that goes under your arms. Rinse.
How Should I Dry My Bra?
Rinse it out and hang it from both straps, the centre gore, or lay flat to dry. If your bra is padded or made from a moulded foam, gently blot it with a towel and reshape.
And please please PLEASE don’t put them in the dryer.
