I also do mine in tfe shower. Well wash in sink and hang on shower to rinse, then drip dry.

I usually wash mine in the machine, but I handwash the cream lacy one by taking it into the shower with me and washing it there.

I'm a 30gg and spend loads on bras mainly from bravissimo... I'm a lazy sod and I always just bung them in the main wash with all my clothes. No problems as yet!

Into the washing machine into the middle of all my clothes. I buy Sainsburys lace in the packet £6.00 bras and no wires have every come out.

Thank you all. I could try inside a mesh bag inside a pillowcase I guess, have a USA style washing machine which can be a bit savage but endless hand washing sounds grim...otoh bras where I live are pricey and hard to source.

{grin] rhinestonecowgirl buxomness is the way forward!

I agree it takes me about five mins on a Saturday morning.

I handwash too but only after having a reasonably priced bra become a very expensive one when the wire came out and completely destroyed my washing machine.

Hand wash cycle, delicates liquid, so far so good

I do as Clary describes. I'm also buxom and spend £££ at Bravissimo.

I have 5 or 6 decent bras so tend to do a handwash once a week. It's not that onerous.

Bung them in the washing machine and be resigned to replacing them frequently is what I do! Life is too short to be hand washing bras. I don't tumble dry them though; that's my concession to treating them with respect.

I do them on a delicates wash in a net laundry bag and they always come out ok. Mine are very well made though, so I've never had any trouble with seams unpicking or underwire poking out.

Hand wash setting in machine. 30 degrees. Air dry.

Any delicate ones input inside a pillowcase.

I feel life is too short for handwashing and bung mine in the machine on a relatively gentle 40deg wash.
I have a net laundry bag but am often too lazy to use it. Ideally I would though.
Air dry (don't have a tumble dryer).

Washing machine in a net laundry bag. No fabric conditioner. Air dry.

1 or 2 times max sorry have had a glass of wine!

Clary Fri 23-Aug-13 20:43:04

I wash mine by hand. I am a weird size (32GG/H) so I have to spend £££ on them and even then a good fit is hard to find, so I prepared to spend a bit of time on maintenance.

I wear them 1 or 2 times make and then swoosh them in a bit of non bio liquid in the sink, rinse then hang out (or do what ygritte says in winter).

I had one come to bits once in the machine, odd dust everywhere, never again!

ygritte Fri 23-Aug-13 20:40:28

Hand-washing, no fabric softner. Then squeeze out excess water and dry ontop of a clean towel (in winter) or outside in summer.

When mine get a few months old I start to hand wash then machine rinse them very slow in a mesh bag (folded over in the bag so that the wires don't distort).

After a while i put them in the wash on a delicate cycle in the bag.

I have been bunging in washing machine but apparently this is wrong. Can anyone enlighten me?
Thanks
