All Good Girls Know The Rules Of Bra Washing

Apparently it isn't enough that you've purchased special undergarments for strapping down and pushing up your breasts; There are also rules one must following when washing bras.

Susan Nethero, founder of Intimacy boutiques, says that bras should really be hand washed, but if you don't have time to carefully ring out your delicates in the sink, you can wash them in cold water on the gentle cycle — as long as you don't load up the washer with heavy items that can crush the cups. Also, you should be washing your bras after wearing them twice. Um.
