  • The best method is washing them by hand. instead of detergent - use mild shampoo or specialized lingerie detergent as it’s much softer and doesn’t damage the fabric.

  • If you are washing them in the machine, make sure to use a mesh lingerie bag & wash on a gentle cold setting. Make sure you clasp the closure together as the hooks can damage your other items.

  • Don't Toss them in your washing machine with other garments as the heat will damage the elastics by making it loose its elasticity, The hooks can snag other items.


  • The best method to dry your bras if by laying them flat. Don’t squeeze or twist out to remove the excess water, instead you may put them on a towel and pat the excess water.

  • You can also Hang & Dry the bras. Don’t hang it by it’s straps as it will stretch the elastic out, instead hang them from the center front (middle).

  • Don't put them in the Dryer as the heat will damage the elastic plus other materials in the bra and will make it ill fitted.


  • Store them in a row with the cups inside each other on a shelf or a large drawer, you can fold your non wired/ non molded bralettes in half. Underwear can be rolled or be folded and organized in stacks.

  • Store your everyday versus special Lingerie in different sections.

  • For your more expensive & special lingerie, wrap it in acid free tissue paper and keep it in a box.
