Your bras are designed to fit, support and flatter you every single day. If your bras don’t feel right, your day doesn’t feel right! Ensure that your bra-drobe is spick and span to increase your bra shelf life. How do you do this? There are multiple factors that contribute to your bra-drobe lasting and we’re shedding light on some.
1) Make some space
Organizing is a BIG yes, especially when it comes to your personal space, and by extension your intimate wear zone. You don’t necessarily have to be Monica Geller to get it right! The idea is to sort out and arrange them ever so often so that you can identify the ones that are worn out. Let’s face it, there’s no room for old lingerie in your bra-drobe. So out with the old, and in with the new!

2) Shop efficiently
Now that you’ve made some space, the next step is to pack it in with some essential styles. Yep, that means shopping to your heart’s fullest and finding all the right products. If you’re wondering how to be efficient, you may want to start by making a list of everything you need. Pick up styles based on occasions and how often you’d wear them! You’d need a handful of everyday basic bras, but you may not need to stock up on fashion bras or strapless styles.
Pro-tip: Try something like the 9-way bra from Zivame. It’s one style that you can wear nine different ways. Talk about saving some space, huh?
3) Get rid of bra flyaways
Remember to wash your bras with your hands after soaking them in mild soapy water for a few minutes. It’s also best to air dry them instead of popping them into the dryer where they may lose their effectiveness in terms of shape and elasticity. Over time, you may begin to spot a few pesky flyaways. Instead of tossing your bras and assuming their lifespan is settled, try to run them under a lint roller. You could also use a pair of scissors to get rid of any extra threads.
4) Store them well
When you are tucking away your freshly-laundered bras, remember that storing them properly is important too.
Make this checklist your best friend and you’ll have bras that live a long life –
- Clasp your straps so that they won’t get caught with other bras
- Separate them based on their style and store them using an organizer
- Avoid folding bra cups into each other, instead, put them out flat
- Silk scarves, silk bonnets, and now silk storage bags for your bras, they’re definitely a keeper
- When you’re travelling, make sure your bras aren’t all over the place. Fold and store them neatly
All of these pointers are sure to help you properly arrange and store your bras. Invariably, that would increase their shelf-life and give you the best of comfort and style from your intimatewear wardrobe.
