Common Bra Mistakes Most Women Make

If you're like most women, it’s a good bet you're spending a lot of money on bras each year. But, it seems a lot of women are wasting that dough because they are not taking care of their bras properly.

A new report reveals the common mistakes most women make when it comes to their bras. Luckily, they are easy to fix so you never have to waste your money again.

Bra mistakes include:

Don’t Wash Them Too Often – While you may think  that like underwear, bras need to be washed after every use, especially  since they are so close to your skin, and you’re bound to sweat in them,  “Good Housekeeping” reports that too much washing can cause them to  lose their elasticity. Instead, they suggest washing them every three to  four wears. In addition, if you wash them in a machine, put them in a  pillow case, and try to stay away from tumble drying them. Don’t Keep Them In A Drawer – While most gals shove  their bras in the drawer each night, the mag suggests that’s a big  no-no, because they need to air out so “sweat doesn’t fester,” causing  them to smell or irritate your skin. Instead they suggest hanging them,  but from the center not the straps, so you don’t stretch them out. Buy the Right Size – Now this isn’t a big secret,  most women aren’t wearing the right size bra. Breast size can change  based on hormones, or weight loss or gain, so the bra size you wore in  your teens likely isn’t the same one you should be wearing today. And  when buying a bra, make sure it fits comfortably on the loosest hook, so  if it stretches, you can still tighten it.
