How often should you wash your bra?

It all depends on how often you wear a bra and personal preferences. We recommend not to wash your bra everyday and stay away from the dryer. Wash your bra after every 2-3 wears as a guide if you want to retain its shape. The more often you wash your bra places so much stress on the fabric . The cups tend to lose their shape and the straps will lose their elasticity. It is also important to rotate your bras ,so that the cups and straps can relax .
