Wearing The Same Bra Every Day? Why You Should Change It Up
You change your mind. You change your undies. But how often do you change the bra you’re wearing? Help your girls perk up by not wearing the same bra day after day.
Oh, I get it…you have that one, super comfy bra — the one that makes you forget you’re even wearing a bra. You may not think so, but your breasts are screaming for a change.
It may be pretty, but your bra gets dirty. Even if you’re barely leaving your house, your bra is working double-time and has the dirt to prove it. As gross as it sounds, your bra is catching your sweat, body oils, and dead skin cells. Bras also serve as a second bib when coffee, wine, or other beverages accidentally dribble down your front. Wear a bra one day and then give it a break.
It’s So Irritating
With warm weather comes sweat. With sweat comes skin irritations. When you wear the same bra day in and day out, you risk the chance of skin breakdown. The constant rubbing in the same place will take a toll on your skin.
By changing your bra, you’ll give those pressure points a chance to cool down. Keep in mind that if you’re experiencing any shoulder pain or skin sensitivities, you should share that information with your bra fitter so they can better accommodate your needs with a bra that actually fits your body!
Bra Gone Wild
You know how awesome sweatpants feel when they’re nice and stretched out? Hello. The same thing is happening to your poor bra when you wear it for a week. Bras are not made to stretch out. They should remain nice and crisp to keep your girls lifted all day long. You can avoid the bra sag by simply rotating your bras more often.
If You Love it, Leave it
It’s good for your bras to change them out regularly. By rotating your bras more frequently, you’ll keep them around longer. Good bras are an essential investment, so make your investment last. We recommend having at least 3 or 4 great everyday wear bras that you rotate to wear evenly. If you have more, great! Just make sure you’re rotating them evenly.
Here at Barbara’s New Beginnings, we recommend that you hand wash your bras and set them out to dry to extend each bra’s life. If you can, stay away from washers and dryers. A delicate cycle isn’t delicate enough to preserve the longevity of your bra. Plan on handwashing your bras every 2 – 3 times you wear it.
As if we’re not going through enough change these days, but remember, changing your bras is a good thing. Your girls will thank you.
