You’re Definitely Not Washing Your Bras as Often as You Should

Putting on a bra every day is kind of the worst, but it’s also a fact of life for most women. And like everything you wear, it has to be washed semi-regularly.

So, ladies: When was the last time you put your bras in the laundry? Last week? A few weeks ago? Can you even remember?

The best practice is washing a bra after you’ve worn it three times, experts told Buzzfeed. And, of course, if you’re sweating in a sports bra, throw it straight in the laundry.

It’s also a good idea to rotate the bras you wear, according to Elle. Why? Otherwise sweat, dirt, oil, and bacteria starts to accumulate on your bra straight from your skin. What a lovely image! But it’s also probably the one thing that’ll convince us to wash them more often.

We Know They’re Just Trying to Sell More Bras, But This Aerie Ad Makes Us So Damn Happy

Most lingerie ads leave women feeling crappy about their bodies. But Aerie’s commercial for the launch of the Sunnie bra makes us want to get up and dance.

They’re not trying to be anything but themselves, and it’s just fun to watch. “Don’t worry about fitting in,” says Yecca Zeng, an Aerie bra designer. “Standing out is way more fun.” We like the sound of that.
