Care Tips

Proper lingerie care is essential for longer lasting bras and panties and should be done delicately.

  • We always recommend hand washing over machine washing.

  • Wash bras every 2 to 3 wears with a gentle detergent like Soak.

  • Never wear the same bra two days in a row. Rotating your bra use allows the elastic to snap back.

  • Never use Woolite; this will deteriorate the elastic in your bra faster than regular detergent. 

Hand Washing

  • Fill your sink with lukewarm water and add your detergent of choice. We recommend Soak.

  • Pretreat stains with a gentle wash bar. We recommend the BunchaFarmers stain remover bar. You can also pretreat your item for odor removal by adding ¼ cup of vinegar to a tepid water bath, and soak item for 30 minutes.

  • Soak same coloured lingerie for up to an hour, but not longer. 

  • Gently rub the fabric together to remove dirt.

  • If necessary, rinse in cool water (until the water runs clear). You do not need to do this is using Soak as it is a rinse free formula.

  • Lay garment flat on a towel, lay another towel over top and press to remove extra water. For Pyjamas or larger garments, you can roll the towel to help extract water.

  • Always hang to dry

Machine Washing

Machine washine in a front loading machine on delicate or handwash. The drum in top load machines can break your underwire and can stretch out fabrics, we highly recommend hand washing if you only have access to a top loading machine.

  • Hook the backs of your bras.

  • Wash similar coloured items together in a lingerie bag.

  • Wash on a delicate cycle in cool water with gentle detergent.

  • When you take your molded cup bras out of the wash, reshape the cups with your hands. Don't wring out or stretch your bras.

  • Always hang to dry. Never put bras in the dryer because the heat will break down the spandex and you will lose elasticity

Storing Your Bras

Avoid throwing your bras and panties into one drawer and separate your molded cup bras from your bra collection. Molded cups will pucker and bend if inverted or folded, subsequently shortening your bra's life. We recommend stacking your moulded bras one in front of the other.

    Caring for Silk:

    • Hand wash silk using Soak and let air dry.

    • Steam when dry to release wrinkles.
