You're causing more damage than you thought by being frivolous with your bras.
For many of us, a bra is simply something we wear daily, and look forward to taking off at the end of the day and throwing in a draw.
We'll chuck it in the wash every now and again, and wear the same two or three on rotation.
Turns out, looking after your bras is important to make sure they're doing their job.
Boux Avenue's Katie Thacker explained that instead of folding your bras and putting them in your draw, you should lay them out.
She told the Huffington Post that this “will help avoid losing the shape in the cup and any creasing”.
But that's not the only surprise when it comes to bra maintenance.
The owner of Pour Moi, Michael Thompson, also recommended placing your socks or knickers in the cups of the bra to keep their shape.
Along with not storing our bras correctly, a huge amount of us aren't washing our bras right either.
In fact, experts have warned you should be washing your bras ever three wears.
A spokesperson from Agent Provocateur said that by doing this you'll stop the product from stretching.
“When you wash a bra it returns the fibres back to the original state so helps to keep it fitting well", they explain.
