Lingerie, especially the branded ones are expensive.  Here are some tips on how to properly wash them to make them last longer.

It’s always best to wash these sweet undergarments by hand, but when you’re using the machine place them in a mesh-type bag.  The bag will protect the fabric and prevent it from losing it’s shape.

Regular detergents contain harsh ingredients that could break sown delicate fabric.  Wash them separately at all times and use a plant-based laundry soap.

Avoid machine-drying your lingerie.  The heat of the dryer can wreak havoc on lace, spandex and elastic material.  The best way is to lay them out flat to dry and away from direct sunlight to avoid fading and getting deformed.

You don’t need to wash your bras after every wear unless it’s damp with sweat, but wearing your bra 2 days in a row is not a smart idea and should avoided.  What you should do is rotate them and air them out after a short use.

According tot experts, for bras to fit flawlessly, they must be replaces every six to eight months, but proper care can prolong their lifespan.
