They’re called delicates for a reason, but with the proper care you can significantly extend the lifespan of your bras. If at all possible, save yourself a trip to the laundromat and hand wash your bras in cool water with a gentle soap. Warm water will weaken the elastic and regular detergent is harsh against delicate fabrics, meaning a weaker and less supportive bra over time.
If you’re a #girlboss that can’t make the time for hand washing - go with the next best thing. Safely zip bras and other intimates into a lingerie bag and use a gentle cycle, making sure to clasp your bra before washing to avoid snags. And - we can’t stress this one enough - avoid the dryer. Simply press excess water out of bras with a towel (especially any with extra padding) and then hang to dry or lie flat with cups facing up. Once completely dry, stack your bras in a drawer to help retain their shape. Wear, love, wash, repeat.
