It is no surprise that women take care of their bras better than any other piece of clothing simply for the fact that they are so expensive. Your underwear can last a very long time if you take the proper precautions to preserve them. Taking care of your bra collection is very simple to do. Just add a few of these tips into your daily washing routine and you will not have to buy a new bra out of necessity for a long time. Here are the tips:

When you wash your bras, you should not mix them in with the rest of your clothes. This will cause them to tangle up and get caught on other pieces of clothing. You may also ruin fine clothes if the bra hooks grab into the fabric while being swished around. Instead of just throwing them in the wash, you can wash them in a lingerie wash bag.

When you place the lingerie wash bag into the machine, make sure that you throw it in with clothes that need to be washed in cool to cold water and on a gentle cycle. Use mild laundry detergent with your delicates also.

If you do not have a lingerie bag then an alternative option is to wash your lingerie by hand. If this is the case you should use cold water and a mild detergent. Make sure you do not rub the fabrics together too much because this is how the fabrics will deteriorate and the colours will fade.

Do not throw your bras into the wash with the hooks open. Make sure that the bra hook and eyes are clasped together. This will help to prevent the bra from clinging onto other bras and stretching or ruining other items of clothing.

If you hang your clothes to dry outside, make sure that the bras do not dry under direct sunlight as the colours will fade very quickly if they are placed there for a long period of time. You should also avoid tumble drying bras as well as they will become entangled and possibly shrink if dried for too long.

If you are considering buying more bras to complete your collection, then you should go online for the widest selection. There is nothing worse than going to a lingerie store only to find they do not have your size. When you go online, you will be able to find your size in any bra style and colour of your choice. You will also be able to compare the different prices to get the best deals available. Some of your favourite lingerie stores even offer online only discounts that you wouldn't be able to take advantage of on location at the shop itself.
