I have a couple of bra bags & have used them for many years, do you think they keep our bras in better condition?

  • have never used them and never had an issue

  • I think that the bags keep bra’s from getting tangled with other wash.I use mime for socks too so I do not loose any.Also good for small children’s pants again so all together to hang on line. Lots of uses,for keeping small things separate from larger wash

  • Yes I always use mine otherwise I have found the wires come out

  • No,I don’t but I don’t have any bras with wires.

  • no i don’t but i wash everything on gentle. i have a friend who uses a pillowcase to wash that stuff in

  • Also; using a bra bag or laundry bag prevents hooks and wires that come loose from causing damage to your washing machine. I know of someone whose underwire came out of the bra and shredded the rubber lining of their front loader washing machine! Ouch! :(

  • I put mine in the machine on delicates and its fine.

  • Yes I have found using bra bags has kept my bras in better condition and they also keep its shape. If I don’t use a bra bag my bras stretch and become uncomfortable to wear.

  • I never use them. I pop my bras in the washing machine on the delicate cycle. Never had any problems at all!

  • never used them… to lazy, says the mum wearing 3 yr old maternity bras

  • I do and also use pillow cases.

  • Hand wash bras with wires as the wires can come out & jam the machine. I have seen it happen but we managed to get it out with a skinny snake like tool that had a magnet at one end.

  • I found they were great with under-wire bras. Now I no longer wear under-wire bras I just throw mine in the the wash. They do still get tangled sometimes though so I should probably find my bra bags!

  • I have damaged socks from just throwing bra’s in the wash. I know I need to use the lingerie bag but it is annoying and time consuming .

  • I’m not entirely convinced they keep the bras in better condition, but they protect the washing machine if an underwire gets out during washing. That’s way more expensive than a bra bag.
