Finding the perfect bra is a lot like finding the perfect partner. Once you find the right one, you share an intimate relationship, support each other effortlessly, and will do what it takes to make sure the partnership lasts forever. In addition, both require extra care along the way.
Lucky for us, finding the perfect bra has become much easier with brands like ThirdLove, who ensures you get the best fit for your body through their amazingly accurate bra-fitting technology and live chat support with bra experts.
Caring for your bra has also become easier thanks to Rinse's Hang Dry service, which is the best way to take care of one of the most important garments in your closet. We caught up with Rinse’s co-founder and COO, James Joun, who grew up in the Dry Cleaning industry, to find out the best tips and tricks for taking care of of your bra.
“The best way to care for your bra is to be as gentle as possible in the cleaning process,” James advised.
He explained that the typical advice is to make sure your bra is treated delicately when washing it, but most people don't think about how much can happen when drying it. “The dryer places wear and tear on your garments, and it’s more pronounced on delicate items like bras,” James said. “Hang drying your bras is a much safer and gentler way to ensure they continue to look and fit great.”
Here are the 3 main reasons you should always Hang Dry your bras:
1. It extends your bra's lifespan
Machine drying your bra, even on a low-heat setting, can be potentially damaging to the garment. Heat from the dryer can erode elastic properties and weaken the material of your bra. Hang Dry is a great alternative to avoid the wear and tear of the dryer and make sure your bra lasts as long as possible!
2. It helps maintain the perfect fit
Keeping your bra fitting as perfect as the first day that you tried it on is another great reason to hang dry your bra instead of machine drying it. When you place your wet bra in the dryer, the heat causes the material to contract, which can affect its size and fit.
3. It saves energy
If keeping your bras in great shape isn’t enough to convince you to hang dry them, helping the environment may do the trick. Hang drying your bras, and the rest of your clothes, can help you reduce the amount of energy you use and bring down your electric bill. That sounds like a great deal to us!
While finding the perfect bra can be difficult, once you have the right one, you have to take care of it. Hang Dry is one of the best ways to make sure your favorite bra is around for as long as possible.
