Infrequent washing, machine-washing, and machine-drying all shorten the lifespan of your bras. To get the most out of your bras, wash them frequently (every 1-3 wears) like this:
Hand wash your swimwear with a gentle detergent after every wear – even if you haven’t been in the water! Washing removes salt, chlorine, sweat, and sunscreen residue which can break down the fibres of your swimsuit.
We do not recommend machine-washing your bras and swimwear. But if you must: place them in a zippered mesh bag (with hooks done up), use cool water, and don’t put them in the dryer.
Match! Wearing a light-coloured bra under dark clothing can eventually discolour the bra. Try to wear light colours with light, and dark with dark.
Give it a rest. Wearing the same bra day after day wears it out faster. If you can, give each bra a day off between wears.
Moulded cup (t-shirt) bras or swim tops should be stored open if possible (either hanging or stacked cup-in-cup) as inverting the cups can crease the fabric over time. Everything else can be stored in a drawer or hanging.
