DH has made me wonder after he asked me if I wear a clean bra every day. I don't as I don't consider my boobs to be an 'exit'!

So how often do you wash yours?

How many do you have? I have 4 on rotation.

I have about 5.
I don't wear them more than twice, and usually wash after 1 wear.

After every wear. Tried to put one on this morning as I didn't have a clean nude one, wore it yesterday and hadn't bern in washing basket yet but I just couldn't.
Feels too sweaty and close to my underarms.
Might do it at the weekend if I was just slobbing about blush

I change mine every time as I have huge boobs and get quite sweaty under bosom. grin

Clean one every day. But I'm a bit OCD about that stuff - do it with all clothes and wash my hair every day etc etc. I have re-worn in the past if I've had to and tbh didn't notice it wasn't clean so I can see why you might get two wears out of yours.

Btw, love the phrase 'not an exit'. He he

Ummmmm... every week or sooner if I'm putting wash on. blush however I'm not a sweaty person and don't even use antiperspirant. (sometimes when I go to the gym tho!!!)

bobs123 Fri 07-Nov-14 17:29:54

Btw knickers once a day
<feeling exonerated>

I have about 10 bras but I wear the same one every day blushblush it's the comfiest one and I hate the rest in comparison . I need new ones so badly but every time I buy a new one I don't like it and wear this old one again . I wash it every 2-3 days . and sew the underwire back in every month or so

I don't sweat there so mine get put in the wash after about three days. They never smell manky or sweaty.

Very occasionally in the summer in very hot weather I will just wear it once before putting in the wash, but we rarely get such hot days that require me to do so.

I think I must be a dirty person. I have two bras that I wear in rotation during the work week. On the weekend I swap to sports bras and wash my two bras.

Same as bobs123 above

The lady in the very expensive bra shop I bought my best bra from said I should wash it every 2 or 3 wears.

bobs123 Fri 07-Nov-14 17:33:14

Yay not just me then!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

About once a week. It's not somewhere I sweat, or spill things, or excrete bodily fluids, so they don't need washing more often.

Artandco Fri 07-Nov-14 17:40:30

Every wear. I like my bra to match my pants!

eurochick Fri 07-Nov-14 17:43:40

Usually every two wears in winter and every wear in summer. But I'm currently leaking milk due to feeding a baby so it has been daily this summer.

Rebecca2014 Fri 07-Nov-14 17:45:26

Once a week.

GobblersKnob Fri 07-Nov-14 17:54:17

I have 30-40 bras, wear them for one or two days, then wash.

Vivacia Fri 07-Nov-14 19:09:55

Do you wash your bras separately or put them in the same load and programme as other clothes?

erin99 Fri 07-Nov-14 20:39:38

Quite a difference.

Normally wear for 2 days, or 1 in high summer, and machine wash with everything else.

Bunbaker Fri 07-Nov-14 20:41:47

I put mine in a light coloured wash at 40 degrees.

AdoraBell Fri 07-Nov-14 20:44:58

I live in a hot country and get sweaty and horrible every day so there is no way I could wear one twice without washing.

I used to use them twice, on advice from DM, but now find the idea a tad revolting along with lot's of other things she did

AdoraBell Fri 07-Nov-14 20:47:06

Oops, didn't answer fully.

I have loads. Have a bit of a lingerie habit.

SorrelForbes Fri 07-Nov-14 20:48:22

Usually after each wear as I like to wear matching sets. I have a lot of bras.

ExtraWickedDevil Fri 07-Nov-14 20:52:59

Daily. Am a slob in many areas of my life, and have gone bra less on occasions, but have never, ever worn a bra or knickers more than one day.
