CARE GUIDE:

How to get the maximum life out of your sports bra

THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF A SPORTS BRA

If you wash and wear your sports bra at least 3-4 times per week, it may need to be replaced every 6-12 months, depending on the intensity of your workout.

WHEN IT'S TIME TO MOVE ON

Just like your running shoes, your sports bra is a very important piece of equipment, so you should learn the signs of wear and tear to know when to replace your sports bra. You'll know it'stime to ditch and switch when:

  • It no longer feels snug (especially a pull-over style that depends on spandex to support you)
  • It rides up and won't stay put around the rib band (even in the tightest hook if it's an adjustable bra)
  • You change size or shape due to weight gain/loss or pregnancy/nursing
  • It looks too old and ugly to motivate you to put it on and exercise!

PROMOTE A LONG LIFE

To get maximum life out of every sports bra, use these TLC strategies:

  • Choose warm (not hot) wash temperatures
  • Nix chlorine bleach or brighteners
  • Do not use fabric softeners
  • Stash underwire styles in a lingerie bag to avoid stretching/snagging in the washing machine
  • Avoid spandex-wrecking dryer heat like the plague
  • Rotate your workouts among several bras
