Taking care of your lingerie

Your lingerie is often made of delicate or specialist material. Looking after your bras will ensure they keep their shape and structure so they can look after you.

We recommend

  • You hand wash your lingerie in cool water to help preserve their colour and protect delicate fabrics like lace and embroidery
  • Use a detergent designed for delicates
  • Drip dry, do not wring out
  • Do not put bras in the tumble dryer as this may damage any elastane in the fabric
  • Dry away from direct heat, such as on the radiator, as the heat may degrade the wires
  • Store your T-shirt bras by folding them in half and putting one cup inside the other, or stack them side by side
  • You can prolong the life of your swimwear by rinsing it out in cool water immediately after you have used it
  • You should avoid using fabric conditioner on swimwear as this may break down the lycra
