Suit Underwear

One thing all women can likely agree on is that a good bra is expensive.

Furthermore, as one needs more than one brassiere, good upkeep is paramount to make the most of your investment.

Extend the lifespan of your intimate apparel by handling your delicates with delicacy.

A bra should preferably be washed every three days.

So if a woman has three bras that she wears in rotation, when a bra has its third wear of the cycle, in to the washing it goes.

Throwing your bras into the washing machine can damage elastic, underwires, or other clothing which may accidentally be caught on a bra's hooks.

If you want your bras to last, get good at your handwashing technique.

Fill your sink with lukewarm water and add a very small amount of a mild (ideally liquid) detergent. Next, submerge your bras, swish them around and leave to soak for 20 minutes. Rinse and drain before drying.


Not everyone has time, all the time, to be a hand-washing queen, so a lingerie bag is your next best bet.

There are two common types of delicates bag to choose from - the simple, fine mesh sort with a zip, or a structured mesh bag that's tailored for bra protection.

Close the clasps on your bras before inserting into the delicates bag, select a cold, gentle wash, again with mild detergent, and away you go.
