Do you put bras in the washing machine and dryer?

I have bras from Victoria Secret because when I use to buy them from Target they never held it's shape as long. Now I am not saying ( before I get attacked) that Victoria Secrets bras are the best in the world. However, I notice the shape and feel is great. The wire does not dig into my ribs and my boobies look nice. I wash them out while I am taking a shower, then I hang it up to dry. What do you do launder your bras?

  • i do put them in the washer and dryer. I do not change them often, only if i do some hard work and i start sweating and all then ill change it, but i take baths every night so i think by putting them in the washer and dryer is fine since i dont do it very often, if i did it often, i wouldnt use the washer and dryer, i'd probably hand wash them and hang dry.

  • I wash mine in the machine on the gentle cycle but I also put them in a mesh bag and then I hang them up to dry.

  • I will wash them in the washing machine but will dry them flat on a surface. The dryer will rip apart your bras after a while...

  • I wash them in the washer and put them in the dryer with my husband's shirts and dry them about 10 minutes. This way the shirts don't need ironing, and the bras don't get overdried. I change mine every day or every other day, depending on if I sweat.

    When I am on a trip I hand wash them every night. I put them in a sink with warm water and lather up hand soap and wash and rinse. I hadn't thought of washing my underwear and bras in the shower... this makes sense.

  • I use a washer and dryer. When I do wash my bras, I just monitor them, like keep taking them out of the dryer to check if they're shrinking, losing form, or whatever! I was a bit more cautious when I only used Vicky's bras, but since I no longer use them, it doesn't matter. Oh, and for the record, from my own personal experience, I just cannot stand VS bras anymore! I dunno, I just had such crap luck (rips, lose form/shape...etc.), while my friend's all swear by them! lol.

  • Wash in my front loader--before I got it I hand washed. Do not machine dry, ever.
