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.

This Thanksgiving Use #BodyBeThankful to Share the Things You’re Grateful Your Body Can Do

The holidays are an easy time to go HAM on sweets, which almost always leads to self-loathing. Maybe you’re not happy with the way your belly jiggles or you’re frustrated your jeans don’t button so easily after Thanksgiving dinner.

The #BodyBeThankful campaign is here to remind us we should be grateful for the awesome stuff our bodies can do—and not get too worried about the way they look. Sara Haley, a fitness blogger, started the campaign to encourage people, especially fellow moms, to celebrate their bodies during the holidays. Here’s the post that kicked things off:
