A bra is an essential garment for a woman's body since it not only supports her breasts but also shapes her body. Without a bra, no lady can gain her self-confidence.
But you cannot spend endlessly on these garments just because they are important. Therefore there are ways that girls should know that how to make their bras long lasting.
Bras can be chosen to look sexy sometimes, but not always this idea helps. They should be of the appropriate size so that they do not stretch unnecessarily.
They are just a small piece of cloth and would not take much time nor much strength. They should not be left with the washing machine but should be washed gently.
Bras are delicate and therefore should be washed with gentle detergent, plus bleaching your bras should be avoided.
One single bra should not repeatedly be used for days. You should have at least 3-4 bras so that you do not stress on a particular bra for days and keep on rotating them.
Don't wear a white bra under a dark colored top. Wear a light colored bra under a light colored top and a dark colored bra under a dark colored top. This will help your bra from getting ruined.
Bras should not be dumped in the dryer straight forward. Instead, they should be dried carefully by hooking them in the same way you wear.
Do not wear your regular bras while working out because they are not made for that use. There are special sports bras available that can be worn while exercising.
Do not fold your bras when you keep them in your drawer, rather just put them freely with their straps kept open.
Wearing a bra by first keeping it in front and hooking it and then twisting the bra to the front is a common way most girls use but, this definitely is not the right way to wear a bra. You should first slip your hands through the armholes and then tuck your hooks backside.
No doubt mirrors can help you to wear comfortably and look good. Therefore, wearing bras should also be done with the help of the mirror so that you can know where the strap has to be corrected and how to wear it properly.
Do not tie one hook and leave another one because this would not only bring a bad shape but also put full pressure on that one hook.
So girls, these are little and easy steps that can be followed in order to increase the life of your bras.
