ladyofthenight Tue 21-Oct-08 22:56:05

when was the last time you washed it!

WinkyWinkola Tue 21-Oct-08 22:57:22

Every two days. Have only four bfing bras so need to keep rotating them!

Are you meant to wash them?

Best way to wash a bra is in shampoo. HOnest.

Multiple bras. fresh clothes (including bra) every day. Loverly. One of life's minor pleasures - a wonderful shower every morning followed by getting into clothes that are lovely and crisp and fresh and clean.

better go shopping for new bras tomorrow then blush

I'm sure we've had this thread before.

Every 1-2 days depending on how much activity I've done and if I've worn one for a night out.

i thought we had had this before but couldnt be arsed couldnt find it

I take mine down to the automatic car wash and put all the kids in one of the cups for cheap Alton Towers style treat.

handlemecarefully Tue 21-Oct-08 23:23:33

Ummm - after about 4 or 5 days on account of my norks not being a major sweat zone. I would do it every day / every other day if breastfeeding however (due to leaks etc)

HRHSaintMamazon Tue 21-Oct-08 23:23:38


mine is taken off each day and goes in the wash basket along with that day's clothing.

sometimes if its a coloured bra and it hasn't been washed but i want it to go under a similar coloured top i will do a snif test...but that is very rarely.

FangolinaJolly Tue 21-Oct-08 23:29:56

New bra daily.Maybe I am a clean freak!

handlemecarefully Tue 21-Oct-08 23:30:22

Yes seriously - am I a dirty cow? grin

For the record, I shower daily, change my knicks daily (and socks if worn), change tops every other day and jeans every 3 -4 days. Not yet noticed anyone mouth breathing when stood next to me wink

ScareyBitchFeast Tue 21-Oct-08 23:33:49

well exactly hmc,
how can they get dirty every day?

overthehill Wed 22-Oct-08 00:27:27

The sniff test is good enough for meblush: if they don't smell dirty then why wash them? Things last longer if they're not washed unnecessarily and there's more to life than constant washing and ironing.

Lauriefairycake Wed 22-Oct-08 00:30:05

every 3 days - and I don't sniff it

suzywong Wed 22-Oct-08 00:55:08

3 days here too
sports bra immediately after gym visit though

I shared and uni with a girl who cut all the labels out of her underwear and changed all of it three times a day

bellavita Wed 22-Oct-08 07:32:42

overthehill beat me to it - sniff test always works well! grin

FourArms Wed 22-Oct-08 07:35:38

I'm bfing, but don't leak any more (DS2 is 27m now!). I usually change every day, but if for some reason I haven't got a clean one, then I might wear one for two days. I only have 3 super-comfy bras which I've worn on rotation for 18m now!

nuttyworkingmum Wed 22-Oct-08 07:49:38

Had to wash mine today ,about 4 days ha eek thats quite grim! bras are blinking expensive if your a size 32F hence I have 3 bras , only 1 fits right when it`s the time of the month .
