How Do You Know When It’s Time For A New Bra?

Author - Jane Eyre Posted: 27.08.2020

A lot of women are unsure as to when it’s time for a new bra, which often leads to them wearing the same bras for years at a time. Of course, this is something to avoid. It is recommended that you replace your bra between every six months to a year, depending on how often you wear the bra. If you only have a few bras and wear them often, they may need replacing sooner. Luckily, knowing when it’s time to buy a new bra is a lot easier when you know the signs to look out for.


Signs It’s Time For a New Bra

  • Wear and Tear – Even luxury lingerie will show signs of wear and tear once it has been worn a lot, and this is a key sign that it’s time to replace it with something new. After months of being worn and washed, loose threads will appear and you may even notice the underwiring coming out.


  • Difference in Comfort – Though a bra may start off being extremely comfortable this can eventually change after it has been worn a lot. When you notice a difference in comfort, it’s time to invest in new luxury lingerie. After all, you don’t want to be wearing a bra that is anything other than comfortable.


  • Stretched and Loose Straps – Over time straps lose their elasticity and this can make them stretched, loose and unsupportive. The same can happen to the main band of the bra, which also impacts how supportive the bra is. Rather than dealing with loose straps and a lack of support, buy a new bra.


Before buying a new bra, it’s important to consider whether your size may have changed. It’s not uncommon for bra sizes to change over time, so getting professionally fitted is always a good idea. By doing so, you can buy luxury lingerie knowing that you are wearing the ideal size for you.
