We highly recommend that our bras are handwashed in cold water, and never washed in a machine, even when washing on the delicate cycle. Washing in a machine, even with a lingerie bag, can cause the wire to warp and the padded cups and fabric to become damaged.
If you must wash in the machine, please use a washing system like the Bra Baby (www.brababy.com) that will somewhat protect the wire and shape of the bra. However, we do want to reiterate that if you want your bra to last longer, the best way to wash our bras is BY HAND IN COLD WATER. Gently press the water out of the padded cups and then lay flat on a towel to dry.
