Not Your Mother's Bra, Part 6 - Care Tips

Give your bra a break!

-To maintain the elasticity, avoid wearing your bra 2 days in a row. This allows the spandex to regain its shape.

Wash in cold water!

-Wash by hand in cold water with a soap made for delicate fabrics. Regular soaps or bleach can harm fabrics and laces.

Extra protection!

-When washing your bra in a washing machine, attach the back hooks and place the bra in a lingerie bag to protect the fabric. Select the coolest water and most gentle cycle.

No dryers. Ever!

- Hang to dry. Dyers distort cups and cause wire casing to shrink, wrecking underwire and making it break.

Keep in shape!

- Store your bras in smooth finish drawers with enough room to avoid distorting the cup. When traveling, keep our bras together by pacing the cups into one another.
