10 Bra Mistakes You’re Probably Making (And How To Fix Them)

One thing that helps keep that elastic fresh? “Washing it in cold water helps it, because the cold water shocks it.” Oh, and while you’re at it…

8. Washing your bras with Woolite.

Your mother might have given you that first bottle of Woolite for your delicates, but Bobbie revealed to us that Woolite is actually terrible for bras: “It was actually designed to soften wool, so you shouldn’t use that on elastic, because you want the elastic to stay firm.”

That actually makes a lot of sense.

9. Keeping a bra for too long.

“When worn correctly and taken care of correctly, a bra is going to last you about eight months,” Bobbie broke it to us. “After that, the band is stretched out, so it’s not going to support you anymore.”

 

That’s why you should have six to seven bras in your wardrobe so you can rotate them, making them last longer.

10. Settling for a bra that doesn’t fit.

“Women just accept the fact that bras just aren’t going to fit,” lamented Bobbie. Guilty as charged — we get aggravated and tired of bra shopping and simply settle for a bra that kinda, sorta fits instead of a bra that fits perfectly.
