Taking care of lingerie with Wonderbra + Giveaway

Bras. We love them. We hate them..sometimes. But we can't live without them! This is my first ever blog post dedicated to a bra and that's quite surprising given how important bras are! I read quite a bit online about the perfect bra size , how to shop for bras, etc but have never felt like I had enough expertise to educate others! In fact, when I sat down to write this post, I had writer's block.
 Then, I thought it would be a good idea if instead of taking pretty pictures, I would try on the Wonderbra and take it on a short test drive to see how comfortable the wear is. Well, you can say it was very comfortable because I forgot to take it off , left the house to run errands ( lots of them ) came back hours later , took a shower and realized while I was showering that my bra was now sitting with the furry laundry! Oh the horror. How would I be able to post a flatlay now? I decided to gently wash the bra by hand and I was so pleased with how it came put! It looked brand new, I swear. 

Normally I wouldn't recommend wearing makeup, clothes or bras sent for review before photographing them but in this case, it ended up giving me a great blog topic idea! 

Sooo..have you ever wondered how to best wash your bras  to make them last longer? You often hear that it’s better to wash delicates by hand, but is that really true?

I think it's important to note that quality and care go hand in hand. If you have a horribly made bra, washing it by hand would still destroy it. Luckily, mine was WonderBra , which recently launched a new brand message :Be your own kind of wonderful. This is all about celebrating beauty and confidence Fall with a beautiful collection, inspired by luxurious lace details and rich colours.

Taking care of your lingerie is key to preserving its quality, elasticity and lifespan. I wash mine after every wear. You should always separate  whites from other colours and turn them inside out. Delicates should always be washed by hand. Wash them in cold water with a mild soap and no bleach. If you choose to machine wash instead, fasten hooks, so they won’t get caught or jammed in the washer. Avoid using the dryer as it can damage fabrics. Air dry your undergarments on a drying rack or clothes hanger.

If you take good care of your lingerie, it will stay fresh, comfortable and appealing. It will last longer too.

And what about you? Do you have any lingerie care secrets you would like to share? We would love to hear from you!
