We recommend hand washing all lingerie in lukewarm water with a gentle detergent such as the Delicate Wash by The Laundress. Many of our garments are made from delicate fibers like silk and lace, so they require special care to lengthen their lifespan. Bras should be laundered after 2-3 wearings, and it is best to rotate them on a daily basis to allow the material time to return to its natural shape. After soaking your lingerie for 5-10 minutes, rinse thoroughly and air dry on a flat surface. Machine washing and drying damages fine fibers and causes undue stress by stretching out straps and rubbing on wires, so it is best to avoid this entirely. Taking a few extra precautions will ensure that you get plenty of wear from your beautiful new lingerie!
