|CARING FOR YOUR BRA
The majority of manufacturers recommend hand washing your bras, as machine washing bras with underwires can shrink the fabric, miss-shape the wires and cause them to push through the fabric. Use cool water as hot water can damage fabrics like lace, embroidery, bindings and elastics. Cool water will also help keep the garments’ colours and will prevent white fabrics from going off-white.
If you prefer to wash your bras in the washing machine, some manufacturers advise that you do up the clasp of your bra, put your bra in a wash bag (which will protect your bra from getting twisted) and make sure the machine’s settings are set to “delicates” or “soft wash” which is a gentler cycle for your bra. You can purchase a wash bag from specialty bra boutiques or major department stores.
