Bra Care

We suggest hand-washing all our bras. We know it’s a bit of a drag, but you’ll be pleased when your favorite bra lasts longer. Here’s the plan in 4 easy steps.

1. Pre-love

Dab any stains with mild soap and water and gently rub.

 

2. Splish Splash

Soak for a few minutes, then gently work the suds into the fabric and rinse.

 

3. Fold & Press

To get rid of excess water, fold and gently press the bra in a towel before laying it out to dry. Don’t put bras in the dryer – the heat breaks down spandex and elastic.

 

4. Snag Alert

If you do decide to wash on gentle cold in the machine be sure to hook the bra together to avoid snagging it on other clothing or use a mesh lingerie bag.

 

Underwear Care

Here’s something you’ll like: all our underwear can be washed in the machine in cold water on gentle! If they need a little extra love, follow these steps.

1. Pre-love

Dab any stains with mild soap and water and gently rub

 

2. Splish Splash

Soak for a few minutes, then gently work the suds into the fabric and rinse.

 

3. Snag Alert

Use a mesh lingerie bag so the underwear doesn’t get snagged.

 

4. Lay Flat

Lay underwear out on a towel to dry. If you decide to use the machine — tumble dry with no heat. Heat breaks down the spandex and elastic causing underwear to age before their time.
