Common Questions About Luxury Lingerie

There’s lots to consider when it comes to choosing the perfect luxury lingerie. Whether you’re curious about which style would suit you, how long you should keep your bra, how often it should be washed or other important details, we’ve got all of the answers for you here!

What Bra Style is Right For Me?

There’s certainly no shortage of bra styles to choose from and each has a different purpose. When you are choosing a bra style, think about where and when you will be wearing it and with what clothing. If you want something that can be worn for a variety of different occasions, we would recommend that you browse our line of T-shirt Bras. This type of bra is comfortable and discreet under any outfit. 

Should I Go For a Professional Fitting? 

It’s important to have a professional bra fitting, as this will give you an indication of which size bra is best for you. Different sizes fit differently and bodies change over time, so being measured regularly is helpful. If you’re local to our shop in Derbyshire, come and visit us for a professional fitting!

Why is My Bra Uncomfortable? 

You may experience discomfort if you are wearing the wrong size bra. A cup that’s too small will press into the breast and a back that’s too small will dig in. Firstly, we would recommend getting a professional bra fitting to find your size – we also encourage you to invest in Non-Wired Bras if you regularly experience discomfort from your bra. 


How Long Should a Bra Last For? 

If you wear a bra regularly, it should last between six to nine months. If you have a lot of bras and rotate them regularly, you will find that they last a lot longer. Make sure you invest in durable bras made from high-quality materials to get the most life out of them. 

How Often Should a Bra Be Washed?

A bra can be worn three to four times before it needs washing. If a bra isn’t washed regularly it can accumulate dirt, oil and sweat. If you’re someone who sweats easily you can still find breathable, lightweight bras at Bare Necessities that make you feel comfortable all day long – whatever activities you may be doing. 

How Do I Take Care of My Bra Properly? 

Taking care of a bra properly is key if you want it to stay looking its best for as long as possible. Always do the backup when washing it, don’t ever tumble dry a bra and use a delicate washing machine setting as well as a delicate washing detergent. 

How Many Bras Should I Have?

There’s no right or wrong answer, but having four or more bras is recommended. You need enough to accommodate some being in the wash, as well as having enough to work with a range of clothing. If you think you need to increase your collection of bras, you’ll be sure to find what you’re looking for with Bare Necessities luxurious collection. 

Should I Change Bras if I Lose Weight?

A lot of women who lose weight need to buy new bras, as the shape and size of their bodies will have changed. You may not necessarily go down a cup or back size, but weight loss can affect the shape of your breasts. If you’re local to us in Derbyshire you can come and book a professional bra fitting to find the perfect size.

Should I Rotate My Bras?

If you want luxury lingerie to last as long as possible then yes, rotate your bras. A bra will last longer when it’s not worn every day. It’s a good idea to have a selection of bras on rotation at any one time.

Should I Be Hand Washing My Bras?

In an ideal world, yes, you should be hand washing your bras. However, that’s just not an option for many of us timewise. It’s important to wash your bras in a delicate setting, as underwriting can warp in the machine and harsh detergents can ruin the delicate fabric.
