Even though we all wear bras, there are generally 2 categories of women:

a. Women that love them

b. Women that dont.

Ether ways we all have to wear them sometime. And even though its the 21st century, there are still so many contradictory facts about what’s good and what’s not. Well this post is going to shed light on some of the common and frequently asked about myths concerning this.

1. How often should you wash your bra?

Bras are not a self-cleansing clothing item!!. Many ladies don’t seem to realize this. It doesnt matter what colour your bar is. Ensure to wash them as often as you wear them. Bras sit across your back and under your boobs — 2 of many regions that tend to get pretty sweaty all so often. Your bra absorbs this sweat and dry up and eventually stink!. Do you still think you should wear them for 2 weeks before washing??

2. Is wearing a bra bad for your health?

3. Sleeping with your bra on will make them perky and firm

4. Is it ok to wash your bra in a washing machine?

The center drum can crush cups and stretch straps if they snag on them and hot water can break down the elasticity of the bra…So, if you want to go the machine route, hook the bra and place into a mesh bag and wash in cool water with a gentle detergent.” Bra expert and author of The Bra Book Jene Luciani.

This is ok but the best option though is to handwash your bras by soaking them in a sink.

5. Does wearing a bra make your bobs sag?

A research carried out showed that “The tension caused by not wearing a bra may increase collagen growth, making breasts higher,”…i know right?.
