How often should you wash your bra? To be honest, we had no idea. (Once a week? Once a month? Once in a while?) Because we figured this was something we definitely should know, we asked the experts over at custom online bra shop True&Co for their advice. Here’s what they had to say:
“Less than you might think. Over-washing can lead to fiber breakdown, loss of elasticity, and faster wear and tear. Generally, a bra can go 4 to 5 wears before washing, but this timeframe is, of course, subject to climate, sweating, odor, and other factors. So, essentially, the best gauge we can recommend is that if it smells good, it's all good.”
