All underwire garments need the same care when washing – this includes bras, swimwear and camisole tops! We advise that you hand wash these items because machine washing can shrink the fabric, and distort the wires so they push through the fabric.
If the wires come out of the garment completely they can cause considerable damage to your washing machine, which can be costly to fix. Good news for your repairman, but definitely not for you!
We also recommend that you dry underwire styles away from direct heat because radiators and tumble dryers can also damage and degrade the wires.
You can prolong the life of your swimwear and help protect it against the damaging effects of chlorine, perspiration and suntan lotion by rinsing it out in cool water immediately after you have used it. You should avoid using fabric softener, because this breaks down elastane and degrades swimwear.
Metal beads and trim can become very hot when exposed to direct sunlight or worn in a sauna, so please exercise caution.
To keep your underwear in tiptop condition, we recommend hand-washing it. It's best to use cool water when you are hand washing – hot water can damage delicate fabrics like lace, embroidery, bindings and elastic. Using cool water will help keep the garments' color and will prevent white fabrics from going gray.
Most of our clothing and nightwear is machine washable. To keep your clothing and nightwear in the best condition, always follow the washing and ironing instructions on the label inside the garment.
All our jersey camisole tops have a built-in underwire bra and a cotton/elastane outer, so we recommend hand-washing them using a mild non-biological detergent, to ensure that colors remain bright. Line dry to keep the garments in good shape and to prevent shrinkage. To keep your camisole top in the best condition always follow the washing, drying and ironing instructions on the label.
