Caring for your bras can be a veritable maze full of wrong turns, unforeseen frustrations, and piles of tangled straps from some every-which-way, convertible version that seemed like a good idea at the time. Wash them too much, and they’ll stretch out and droop like a basset hound’s face — too little and they’ll start to smell like one.
But, if even the basics of bras leave you confused — how to pick them, care for them, feel confident in them — Jennifer Zuccarini is your girl. As the former design director at Victoria’s Secret and the creator of her very own intimates line, Fleur du Mal, Zuccarini is your go-to source for all things underthings. And, her first order of business is tackling your laundry.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Jennifer recommends a hand wash or gentle cycle in cold water once every three wears. You can bump the frequency up in the steamier summer months — either way, they'll likely be cleaner than your jeans. Whether you're sporting the bra-as-accessory look or prefer to keep it under wraps, click on over for more of Zuccarini's lingerie know-how. (Huffington Post)
