Bra School – Lingerie Care

  • How should I wash my bras?

    • Your bras should always be washed by hand. Handwashing is the best thing you can do to protect the life of your bra. But before you get your undies in a twist (literally), don’t worry… hand washing is easy!

  • How do I hand wash my lingerie?

    • To wash your bra, dissolve about 1 teaspoon of a natural, gentle detergent into a sink or bowl full of cool water. We recommend Forever New or eucalan, as these products have a natural base and do not contain harsh chemicals that break down elastic. Take care to separate colours and wash lights and darks separately, as dyes can run onto other garments when wet.

Place your bra in the water, gently swishing it around to dampen. No need to rub or wring out the bra… simply let the bra rest in the water for 15-20 minutes. Then, remove the bra from the water, rinse, and gently squeeze the excess water from the material, taking care not the disturb the underwire. Hang, or lay flat on a towel to dry… easy!

  • Why can’t I wash my bra in my front-loading machine, on the delicate cycle?

    • Washing your bra in the machine, even in a front-loader on the delicate cycle, is not only harmful to your bras; it can also harm clothing in the machine with it, or even damage the machine. Take it from us… you don’t want to learn this the hard way!

After a bra has been put in the machine (even just once), the wires will be weakened. There is a much greater likelihood of the wires bending, breaking, or poking through the material after being washed in a machine. The material will pill and snag, and overall, the bra will look rougher. In addition, the hooks on the back can hook onto other clothing in the machine and cause damage. If the damage to your bra and other clothing is not enough, washing bras in the machine can also damage your washing machine. If the underwire comes out during the washing cycle, it can get stuck in parts of the machine, resulting in a costly repair.

  • How should I wash my undies?

    • You should always start by looking at the care instructions on the inside tag. If it says it is acceptable to wash the panty in the machine, make sure to wash it with other delicate items, and on a delicate cycle. Washing panties in a mesh laundry bag is highly recommended. You should always hang your delicates to dry, as the heat of the dryer can damage the elastics and fabric.

  • What’s the best way to wash my shapewear?

    • Start by looking at the care instructions on the inside tag. If the tag says it is acceptable to wash your shapewear in the machine, make sure to wash the garment with other delicate items, and on a delicate cycle. Separating light and dark colours is essential, as dyes can bleed onto other garments during the washing cycle. It is always best to hang your shapewear to dry, as the heat from the dryer will break down the elastic.

  • What’s the best way to wash my lingerie?

    • Always follow the care instructions on the manufacturer’s tag inside the garment. If there are no care instructions, it is recommended to gently hand wash and hang your delicates to dry – especially if the garment has boning, a padded top, or an underwire.

  • How do I wash my pantyhose, and how often should it be done?

    • Pantyhose should be gently hand washed every 2-3 wears, depending on how much you perspire. Always wash with a natural, gentle detergent such as Forever New or eucalan. Let the hosiery soak for 10-15 minutes, gently squeeze out the excess water, and hang to dry.
