How do I care for my bra?

Washing a bra by hand is always going to prolong the life of your bra - we recommend using Eucalan, this delicate wash is an easy and quick solution to taking care of your bras. Fill a sink with warm water, add a cap full of eucalan, allow your bras to soak for about 15 minutes and then lay flat to dry. No need to rinse.

If you want to wash your bras in the washing machine, just make sure you use a mild detergent, a laundry bag and do up the clasps so your bras so they do not catch on anything.
