Sep 16, 2020 · 3 min read
Have you ever accidentally thrown your bra in the wash only to have it come out on the other side looking a little bit out of shape and discoloured? We’ve all done it, girls. It’s not fun.
Underwear care is super important, especially if you want your underwear to last a long time. You should know that here at Lounge, we’re not fast fashion. It’s not a ‘wear once then forget about it’ kind of deal. We use quality materials and the highest standard of manufacturing processes to ensure that you can keep Lounging in comfort day after day!
Knowing how to wash your underwear safely in the washing machine and how to hand wash your underwear are two must knows for all of our Female Family. Nobody wants their bra to have wires poking out of the side or their cups to be a little worse for wear, so if you need some help caring for your underwear, we've got just thing right thing for you.
Get your notebook out, girls...
How Often Should You Wash Your Bra?
Knowing how often you should wash your bra is important if you want to protect its life span. The average lifespan of a bra is between six-eight months, but there’s no reason why you can’t make it last a little bit longer with some TLC.
It’s always breast practice to not wash your bra every day and to avoid the dryer at all costs! Trust us, a clothes horse is enough! We recommend washing your bra every 2-3 wears to protect its shape for a little bit longer. We don’t want dimpled and overstretched bras now, do we, girls?
How to Wash Your Bra
To machine wash or not to machine wash, that is the question...
Are you unsure on how to wash your bra? There are two different methods you can use to wash your breast bits - either machine washing or hand washing. We’re all for convenience, but knowing how to hand wash your bras is golden knowledge if your machine ever breaks or if you have that one bra that requires a little bit more care than the others (we all have one).
To hand wash your bra or delicate lace pieces, simply follow our steps below:
Not a fan of hand washing? No problem.
We care about your delicates, ladies, probably a little bit more than you do. If you decide to opt for machine washing, it's always a good idea to use our Underwear Care Bag. Our Underwear Care bag is destined to keep your undies safe during machine washing, always. Prevention is better than cure, after all. Our Underwear Care page goes into a little bit more detail about all things machine washing!
Remember, we will always recommend that delicate, cotton pieces be washed on a 30°C heat.
What About Washing My Briefs?
You didn’t think we would forget about the main attraction, did you?
The other good news in all of this is that washing your briefs is even easier (yes, really!) For those delicates, pop them on a 30°C wash (psst…briefs should be washed after each wear as standard for hygiene reasons). Again, it’s breast practice to avoid the dryer unless it's absolutely necessary but if you need to, always go for the lowest heat. We won’t tell if you won’t.
And there you have it - underwear care made easy!
We told you it wasn’t so bad.
