  • When they fall apart and can't possibly be worn. I own three. One I rarely wear cause I don't like it. I alternate the other two.

  • I still have bras from my sophmore year of high school. I graduated in 2006. They dont have holes they might be a little streatched, but bras are expensive. I just bought more because my boobs grew in pregnancy but went back down a little bit and I only had 5 bras. I spent like $40 on bras at walmart and they will get me an extra 5 days of bras. I wear them until they cant be worn anymore. Same thing with my underware. I still have some that my hubby bought me my freshman year of HS (yes thats how long we have been together) and they have some holes in the front where the lace was kinda crapy in the first place but thats it.

  • I wear my underwear and bras until they look bad. Then I take them on trips, wear them once, and throw them out. It saves packing stuff on the way home, saves laundry after I get home, and keeps my used garments from being searched through during the airline screening.

  • Till it is so stretched out it doesn't fit anymore, or when I lose or gain weight.

  • Till the underwire (don't know why I need that anyway) gets crooked or until they just annoy me if they are stretched or itchy. I usually only spend like $5 on them at wal mart so I don't mind throwing them out too often! Other than that I just wear sports bras, so they last a while until the elastic gets crusty!

  • Usually until one of the underwires breaks

  • I wear bras for years, as long as they still fit and aren't too worn out!
