What’s the minimum number of bras you need?
Women and lingerie are inseparable. We know! But how many bras do you actually need? Three, six, or maybe even ten? Read on to find out if you are already over the minimum number, or whether you can still add to your lingerie collection.
The answer to your question is …
We have the answer to this burning question: A minimum of 4. This depends entirely on how you wear them, how thrifty you are with them, and how large the cup size is. The larger the cup, the more easily the bra can lose its shape, through machine-washing and the elasticity the cup requires. Change your bra every day to give the elastic in your bra time to come back into shape. This is important, otherwise your bra could lose some support. Plus you don’t have to wash your bras quite as often if you change your bra every day. In this way you can wear your favourite bras for longer. How good is that?
When is it time to replace your bra? This depends on how often you wash your bras, if you wash by hand or in the washing machine, and how often you wear the bras. A new bra every six months is a reasonable purchase. Want to know for sure if you need to replace your bra? Have a quick check to see if you’re experiencing any one of these issues:
Worn patches, Bent hook and eyes, underwire broken or sticking out? Unfortunately it’s time to bid your bra goodbye, And to go looking for your new favourite piece of lingerie.
- Too small/too large
The female body changes over time. Your breasts could shrink in size, or get larger. Help your body and provide it with the right support.
- Not comfy
You wear a bra (almost) every day for the support. Once your bra no longer fits you properly, then yes … it’s time for a replacement! You should feel a properly-fitting bra while you’re wearing it. Research has shown that 80% of women wear the wrong size bra. Get yourself measured in one of our shops, then you can be sure you’ll get the right fit for you.
