This one is a shocker and once you know, you may definitely end up wanting to do a little bra re-stock. The frequency of washing your bra depends on various factors such as personal preference, activity level, and climate. However, as a general guideline, it is recommended to wash your bra after every 2 to 3 wears.

There are a few reasons why regular bra washing is important:
Hygiene: Bras come into contact with your body, absorbing sweat, oils, and dead skin cells. Washing them regularly helps maintain good hygiene by removing these accumulations.
Odor control: Wearing the same bra multiple times without washing can lead to the buildup of bacteria and sweat, resulting in unpleasant odors. Regular washing helps keep your bras fresh and odor-free.
Skin health: Dirty bras can cause irritation, rashes, or even infections, especially if you have sensitive skin. Keeping your bras clean reduces the risk of skin-related issues.
When washing your bras, it's essential to follow the care instructions provided on the label. Typically, bras can be machine-washed on a delicate cycle using a mild detergent, or hand washed. Avoid using harsh chemicals or bleach, as they can damage the fabric and elastic components. It's also advisable to air dry your bras instead of using a dryer, as heat can weaken the fabric and elastic.
