…before washing it? Darling Husband found out yesterday that I was wearing the same bra two days in a row and he was seriously grossed out. He asked “what if I wore the same boxers two days in a row?” Am I gross??? If I happen to sweat or something, then I won’t. But in general, they aren’t that dirty. Or am I a seriously disgusting person?

At least more than once, but it really depends on what I have been doing. Any work out bras I wash after each use, or at least rinse.

@MrsSl82be: That’s true. Sports bras I only wear once. Too afraid of breaking out in bad bad places!

Washing bras all the time makes them lose their shape and ability to do their “job” correctly.
I only own 3-4 bras that I wear regularly…so I wear them a lot in between washes. At least 3x.

@heathaah: I wear a bra usually 2 times. I only wear them when I’m out of the house lol. So maybe 5 hours a day. I wash my sports bras every day.
Boxers are NOT the same. You don’t have pee and semen dribbling out of your nipples.

If it’s a sports bra that I wear to work out I usually wash it after one use, especially in the summer!
With a normal, everyday bra it’s like 3 times. I sit in an air conditioned office all day!

Work out bras I wear twice (is that gross?) Regular bras I wash once a week…maybe. Hmm, maybe I’m gross! Bras are different than boxers b/c there is no, ehem, secretions possible for in the chest area (unless you are lactating, which I’m not).

It’s not logical to wash a bra after every time you wear it (disregarding bras for working out). They get so torn up in the wash and wear out quickly the more you wash them. I think the rule for bras applies to t-shirts too. Unless you sweat or spill something, washing after 3-5 uses is generally acceptable. That’s my opinion though.

I dunno like 5-10 times.
If I sweat like crazy though, I’ll wash it.

Yea, it depends on what I’ve been doing, as well as on the bra.
If I work out in it, I definitely wash it.
I have some older bras that stretch out pretty fast as well, if I run them through the dryer they tighten up a bit, so I usually wear those twice.
Generally, 3-5 times depending on when I’m doing a load of laundry 🙂

I don’t have enough bras to afford washing them after every single use! The way I see it, underwear gets washed after one use because there’s a lot of “juices” and such down there (sorry for the TMI). I only up my bra washings if I’ve been doing something particularly sweaty one day.

it not like panties lol. If your really sweaty then no but if not wear it twice then wash. You also have to remember if you have fancy bras its better for them if you get more out of each wash, They wont fall apart as fast

Oh good…I feel better! I will show him the poll results because he did not believe me when I told him most women wear their bra more than once! I said “what do you want me to do, get enough bras that I don’t have to wear them twice?” He says “well, yea!” Haha, ok, give me a few hundred dollars then!

I wash my underwear everytime I wear them… I wash my bras (I have 2) every other week… so I wear them 7 days before washing them… I do the same thing with my jeans… lol

Oh man, I’m glad I’m not the only one who voted “more than that.” I was starting to feel a little gross after I clicked the vote button. I hardly ever wash mine. I can’t afford to have them getting beat up in the washing machine/dryer and I really hate the way the straps curl up from the heat in the dryer! It makes me crazy. LOL
