How many bras do you own?

How long do you wear one before you wash it, and how often do you buy new ones?

  • The number of bras ( and underwear) that I own are literally in the hundreds. Let me explain....I used to work at Victoria's Secret and I got a 40% discount off of SALE prices. So during the Semi-Annual sales I would get $40 bras for $5. How could I possibly resist? The sad thing is that I can't wear any of them! Or, well, I can, but let me tell you my cup doth runneth over! LOL! I am limited to two regular bras and two nursing bras. I refuse to buy anymore until I am done nursing and can see the final product, lol! Hopefully I am will go back to my pre-nursing size so I can actually wear what I already have. I think I once went over four months without washing underwear and still had clean ones leftover so I could've gone even longer if I'd wanted to. As for washing bras, I'm lucky to wash them once a month. Handwashing is a pain! I figure I wear nursing pads which I change frequently, I mean, how dirty can boobs get? LOL!

  • I have one that really fits nicely so I live in it. I'm losing weight, so I'm not going to buy more yet.

  • I own about 20 but I wear the same few a lot. I was them maybe once a month. (I dont sweat much lol) I only buy news ones maybe once a year. Victoria's Secret is where I usually get them but I noticed lately they're ftting me diff. I think they changed their manufcturer. :(

  • I have only four and I change them every other day. I can't ever find one that fits properly and I hate bra shopping!

  • I have too many, but I do have a couple favorites that get washed every other day. If I'm home all day I don't wear one.. I'm home a lot so it feels good to be free!!

  • I've got two that are really comfortable and they get washed weekly. I need to go pick up a couple more, since one of them (my favorite of the two) is starting to fall apart. I got them at Victoria's Secret, which is nice since they fit the bras to me, but I just HATE shopping, bra or otherwise.

  • I buy new ones frequently because my bras are jinxed or something. I've had about 30 this year. Something keeps happening to them. Usually I have one or two and then I buy more. But right now I have 4 and I'm keeping a very close eye on them. lol!!!

  • I own 63. Yep, 63. I buy a new one every time I find one I like (in every color they have). I have every day bras, strapless bras, bras I can wear with a tank top, see thru bras, lace bras, velvet bras, valentine bras, xmas bras and these don't even count the sports bras I own. I just can't seem to get rid of them once I buy them. I wash them by hand after each wearing.

  • I own two, maybe three. I'm not sure where the other two are at the moment. We're still unpacking after moving into our new home, so everything is everywhere. I only buy a new one if the ones I own are tattered, too worn, and stretched out. I wash them maybe about once a week unless needed otherwise.
