Bra Care like You Care

How exciting would it be to find fresh new bras in your closet every time you open it?

While you can’t be buying new bras every weekend, you can definitely learn some tricks to keep them new.

It’s crazy how you spend thousands a year on bras but you are completely clueless when it comes to caring for them. It is good news for lingerie retailers when users don’t know bra care because a shorter life span means more repeat sales.

Can you imagine having a pet dog and feeding and treating it right? You don’t expect the dog to live past 60 days do you?

….”But it’s just bra”. Yes it is just bra, but that doesn’t mean you don’t care for them – right?

If you’re going to be spending anyway, you should be spending on different types and styles of lingerie because of the different occasions where you will need them, not because the 3 month old bra has gone out of shape because it was spun and twisted harshly in the washing machine on high temperatures.

As worthy as bras are as investments, they are also very delicate investments so it pays to learn and be aware of how to treat them like your best friends.

They work so hard for you. They make sure you have the right support, the perky boobs, the cleavage so deep you can pour wine into (and feeling naughty about it) and more importantly, they make you feel great!

There are only 2 ways to washing everything – either you manual wash them or you put it on auto.

While you should really hand wash your bras, you’re going to scream about your morning rush hour traffic, your next appointment with your client, your dinner date, your coffee that’s boiling in the machine – we know you have so much to do with so little time.

If you’re not going to hand wash them, you have to wash your bras in the washer on the gentlest cycle there is and you have to put them in a bag.

Do not stuff too many bras in a bag or they won’t be clean. Hook the bands together and wash them with similar colors and never ever spin them dry.

Air dry them and if you cant wait for your bras to dry, you can either wear something else or buy a new one. We have good bras too!

You will never want to hang them like this! You should first towel dry your bras to remove excess water and then lay them flat to dry.

But if you have to hang, make sure you hang them at the centre gore so gravity wouldn’t pull the bra loose.

Remember, you will be excited to see fresh new bras every time you open your closet!

What is the Best Bra?

….”What is the best bra?”…

We get asked this a lot at our fittings; even at times when we’re just chatting with friends.

Here’s the idea. There is no best bra.

It’s just like asking the best time to do something.

You don’t ask for the best time to do something, you’ll know when it’s time. What you’re actually feeling is readiness, courage, confidence, certainty – it’s how you feel from within you that matters. No one is supposed to tell you what or how to feel, right?

It’s the same for lingerie. There is no best bra – but there is how you want to feel and how the bra can best bring that feeling out in you.

Bras have come a long way since breastbags and the handkerchiefs with ribbons. They have evolved and adapted to the influence of fashion and sexual tastes of time. And speaking of sexual tastes, there are those who wear bras to feel sexy. So isn’t the feeling what it’s all about?

There are also women who wear bra to conform to societal norms. Then there are the ones who just want to keep the nipples from showing. If you are wearing bras on the inside as innerwear, then bras should be how they make you feel, not how sexy they look.

Many people get it wrong – they are being worn by the bras instead of them wearing the bras. What does that mean?

Have you seen a pair of boobs that is so awkwardly disproportionate to the body so much that the boobs look like they are screaming for help? Or boobs are pushed so high up that they look more like balloons than they are boobs?

If you’re feeling it, you are probably wearing what you think is the best bra.

Instead, ask yourself what do you want from wearing bra? If you are asking for the best bra, then what is it about the bra that makes you think it’s the best?

Or what do you want it for? For sex?

Then how about trying a pair of red lacy push up plunge bra? But what if you do not have the volume to create that sensual cleavage? Are you going to force yourself in and end up feeling uncomfortable? And then lose all the confidence and passion for sex?

What you really want to do is to find the right bra for the right occasion to feel at your best.

If you have to lose the bra to feel great about yourself, go ahead and lose it because that itself is your best bra.
