The instructions here are for ALL “New” intimate wear products
containing elastic regardless of manufacturer.
All brand new fabrics contain a protective coating called sizing:
This protective coating may cause sensitivity and a rash in some
individuals. This sizing gives new fabrics stiffness to facilitate
sewing and the construction of the garments. This stiffness is
uncomfortable in undergarments. It is recommended that all new
undergarments, regardless of brand, be laundered prior to wearing.
Never put garments containing elastic in the dryer.
Hang them to dry in a cool dry place in a manner which will not distort the shape of the garment.
For the Custom Fitted Bras, it means that hanging the cups upside down will allow the water to drain naturally away from the patented support collar. Some prefer to drape the upside down bra over an inflatable wash and wear hanger.
Elastic garments loose their life and elasticity when dried in a dryer. The high heat breaks down the fabric. Of course, when we remove the lint trap in the dryer, we see that all fabrics have lost lint into the dryer lint trap. Elastic, however, is particularly vulnerable to degeneration in the dryer heat.
For most intimate garments - wash before wearing: Soak your new garments in a mixture of fabric softener and water for several hours. Rinse, then wash, by Hand or in a Washing Machine, thoroughly,
using a mild Cold Water Wash*,
not Heavy Duty detergent, and NOT Woolite, it deteriorates Elastic
Rinse thoroughly, even if you have to use several rinses.
*You don't need heavy duty laundry detergent to launder your intimate garments. Use a cold water wash without enzyme action, (I recommend ALL Free, from the grocery store) or one of the products from Beauty By Jeunique, see below.
Most fabrics are not allergens:
Laundry detergents are more often the reason for a skin reaction to a garment than a sensitivity to a fabric. A person sensitive to the enzyme action of laundry detergents will often blame the fabric such as lace, or what ever, for the reaction. This skin reaction is sometimes referred to as detergent dermatitis not fabric dermatitis.
Intimate clothing worn close to the skin is of particular concern. Detergent residue collects in the seams and on the fabric. This residue dissolves in the perspiration and begins “eating protein”, since after all, that is what the enzyme action of the detergent is designed to do. Detergent manufacturers spent years to perfect this enzymeaction to efficiently clean heavily soiled clothing. You DO NOT need heavy duty laundry detergent for intimate apparel.
Gentle Care means Longer Wear!
Never wear the same bra two days in a row.
No two bras are identical even if the same size and style.
Wear pressure points will be different for each bra.
Washing stops the break down of the fabric from the chemical reaction of perspiration, perfumes, and deodorants.
Your bra will last longer and retain its beauty if washed after every wearing to remove body oils and prevent soiled areas from becoming permanent and shortening the life of the bra
Allowing each bra to rest a day before wearing again, will give the elastic the opportunity to return to its original shape. This will extend the life of your bra.
Wash by Hand or in the Washer - Do NOT dry in the Dryer
Wash with good lingerie soap, but NEVER, put the bra in the dryer.
If using an automatic washer, Roll each bra such that the hooks are INSIDE the roll. Place rolled bras into a laundry bag. NOT a NET Laundry bag. Use a closed fabric bag or pillow case.
Hang all intimate garments to dry. Hang the Custom Fitted bras upside down. This will drain the water away from the support collar. Shape the band & shelf, and Finger Press the seams while the bra is still wet. This will maintain the shape and assure long life to your bras.
Allow the Custom Fitted bras to dry thoroughly so all the inner fabrics are free from moisture.
By observing these simple rules, you will keep your Custom Fitted Bras, fitting just the way you want them to fit.
