The Care and Keeping of your Brassiere

The Care and Keeping of your Brassiere

A.A. A.A.
Alrighty then... Now I don't know if i'm weird or not, but I will wear the same bra for a few days before washing it. I don't know if this is the norm, but because I'm a hard to find size, I only have a few that fit me well. Mine live in a drawer with my undies and just get thrown in there. They get washed AND dried in the dryer. (horrible for them ... i know)My bras and undies never match... I prefer underwires with padding for a good lift. How do you take care of your bras? Check all that apply and let me know anything adtl in the comments.

I wash my bras in the washing machine cold every week. And then I dry them on low heat

Cute poll!

I don't wash mine all that often, but I don't really wear them all that often either. When I'm at home I never wear one. When I wash them, I wash them in a lingerie bag with the rest of my clothes, and then line dry them.

I wear them for days at a time and I throw them in the washer and dryer, I know it's bad, but I'm lazy

So uh... I don't wash my bras. I don't know why I don't, I just... I wash all my other clothing, I just don't wash my bras. I get a new bra every 6 months. I only have one bra at a time. Don't tell anyone. >.>

i wash mine about once a week ... i too have a hard time finding bras as a 42DD its VERY hard to find one that fits AND looks right lol but really unless i work up a sweat theres no need to wash more often than that

And yes they go right into the washer and dryer with the rest of y clothes which i'm sure is the reason they tear up so fast lol but yeah i dont have time to be bothered with handwashing and all that

I have some cheap cotton underwire bras that I throw in the wash and sometimes dryer too. But my good bras get washed by hand (not often..) and hung up to dry. When I find one I like, I'll buy one in every color. That way I don't have to wash them as often and I won't have to go bra shopping every 6 months either like Ryuson (you're secret is safe, no worries ). I hate bra shopping so much though.

Wash 'em with the laundry, dry them on a hanger. I used to sleep in one, but the hubby likes to be able to hold onto my boobs in bed, so they pretty much went out the window.

I have way more than 8 bras. I dont know exactly and I'm not counting! I never wear the same bra 2 days in a row. I read they stay supportive longer if they "rest" inbetween wearings. I dont know if this is really true but it's a great excuse to buy more pretty bras!

I'm the same way. I wear mine for sometimes 4 days in a row! Lol. I have 2 bras right now and a strapless bra. I've been meaning to buy another. I get mine super cheap though, $9 for 2 bras at Rue21. I like them because I can find EXTREMELY light padded bras and they come in my favorite--neon colors with zebra print! I use underwire, but no padding or extra push-up. I prefer comfort, well as much comfort you can get in a bra. Plus, mine aren't super big at all so I don't always have a terrible time finding my size. It's hard to find a good fit for an A cup right breast and an almost C cup left breast! Lol.

Oh, almost forgot. Yes, I wash mine in the machine with other clothes and sometimes dry them if in a hurry. If I'm not, I'll let it dry in the laundry room.

I'm too lazy to hand-wash my bras. They go in the washer (in a bag) with everything else.

I hardly ever wear a bra. When I do, I wear unpadded, no underwire bras. I wash them in the washer with everything else.

I keep a hanger or two in my closet and hang my bras on them because they take away a lot of room in my drawers.

I choose which one I want basically on a whim so I don't know how many times I wear each. I do laundry every couple of weeks so I wash them then. I wash them in a pillow case and then hang them to dry.

I give my boyfriend evil death glares if he alters from my method in any way.

I may sound finicky, but I find it hard to find cute bras in my size so when I find them I want to keep them.

Also, I love this poll and question

I have 25 bras- just counted almost all are a B36 push-up one a double push up. I hand wash them if they are lace and throw them in the washing machine otherwise but I don't dry them its not worth it it wrecks them. I often wear them to bed (with the rest of my clothes).
BUT I have 119 pairs of underwear (and counting) due to over compensation for when I didn't own any lol. I rinse them out every morning when I change them and then wash them- habit I picked up from my mom
I buy 5 for $25 or 7 for $27 at aerie or la senza every couple of months
my socks are usually dirty tho.
