- Washing: Handwashing is recommended for most lingerie items, including bras. Fill a basin or sink with lukewarm water and add a gentle lingerie detergent. Gently agitate the bra in the water, paying attention to any areas that may need extra cleaning. Avoid rubbing or twisting the bra, as it can damage the fabric and shape. Rinse the bra thoroughly with clean water.
- Drying: After washing, gently squeeze out excess water from the bra. Avoid wringing or twisting the bra, as it can cause damage. Lay the bra flat on a clean, dry towel and reshape it to its original form. Allow it to air dry in a well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight or heat sources. Avoid using a clothes dryer, as it can lead to shrinkage or damage the bra’s materials.
- Storage: To preserve the shape and quality of your Panache Envy bra, it’s best to store it properly. You can fold the bra in half with the cups nested inside each other or lay it flat in a lingerie drawer. Avoid folding or stacking bras on top of each other, as it can cause distortion or damage.
- Frequency of washing: Bras typically do not require washing after every wear. It’s generally recommended to wash them every 2-3 wears to remove oils, sweat, and dirt that can accumulate. However, this may vary depending on individual preference and activity level.
- Additional tips: Avoid using bleach or harsh detergents, as they can damage the delicate fabrics and elastic. If you prefer to machine wash your bras, use a lingerie bag and select a gentle cycle with cool water. Always check the care label attached to the bra for specific instructions or recommendations from the manufacturer.
