Our Wacoal bra supplier recommends the following alternative to hand washing:
  • Machine wash a bra inside of a mesh lingerie wash bag
  • Fold the cups together, fasten the hooks and eyes and place the straps, hooks and eyes inside the cups
  • Place the bra in the lingerie bag and into the washer
  • Use mild detergent, no additives or bleach
  • Remove from wash bag and dry hanging or flat
  • Never place any lingerie in the dryer
The rule of thumb is a bra should be washed after every time it is worn to remove body oils, perfumes, moisturizers, self-tanners etc. Also, bras should be retired after being worn 100 times as they will not offer the support required.
