Girl Talk: Bra Edition
Between doing a radio show with two men every day and living with one, I often feel the need to have some 'girl talk'.
Thankfully, I can usually get in some 'girl talk' with our interns Kara and Holly! We work closely with our interns here, so we all get to know each other pretty well. We talk about relationships, diets, men, all kinds of stuff! Today, we talked about bras.
I'm not sure how the topic came up...but we realized we all had questions. After a quick google search, we found some answers courtesy of the Huffington Post.
First things first, how the heck long are we supposed to keep bras for? Apparently, you should only hang onto your bras for about 6-9 months. Well, well, well...it's a good thing Victoria's Secret is having their Semi-Annual Sale right now, because I've passed that timeline!
Another question, how often should you wash your bra? Every wearing? Nope! The best way to get the most bang for your buck on a bra is to wash it after two wearings (with the exception of sports bras, those need a washing every time if you are wearing it to work out in). Also, to keep it in the best shape, you shouldn't wear the same bra two days in a row.
Now, when it comes to washing it, I'll admit, I used to put all my bras in the washing machine AND dryer. Key phrase, 'used to'...I realized they live a much longer life if you wash them in a delicate cycle and then hang them to dry. Bonus points if you have a couple of those washing machine garment bags...that definitely helps to stick bras in there before starting your load of laundry! Or if you prefer and have the time, hand washing them will make them last even longer.
And that's where the bra chat ended....we've now moved onto to 'what's for lunch?' which is an even better discussion!
