Intimate Care Instructions

To prolong the life of your intimates, we recommend you gently clean and dry them according to the manufacturer's suggested advice.  If you are unsure of the best way to clean a product, hand washing is the safest and preferred method.  Keep in mind that perfumes, lotions, perspiration, and even body chemistry can cause elastic and fabric to degrade over time if your intimates are not washed frequently.

Hand Wash

Fill sink with cool water and mild soap or detergent then lightly agitate the water to disperse the soap. Rinse the bra with cold water and squeeze excess water, but do not wring. Blot dry with a towel.

Dry Clean

Some bras are not designed to be hand or machine washed. If the manufacturer recommends dry cleaning the garment, follow their advice.

We highly recommend you hand wash bras as it is the safest method for cleaning.  Never place bras in the dyer as the the heat will destroy the elasticity of the bra and cause shrinkage, wire distortion, and fraying. After washing, reshape the bra and either allow the bra to hang dry or dry flat on a towel. Keep bras away from heaters, radiators, and sunshine to prevent the fading of colors and discoloration of whites.  A Sophisticated Pair is not responsible for damage to bras caused by improper care.

Additional Tips:

  • If you have sensitive skin, use a mild hypoallergenic soap or your regular body wash for cleaning intimates.

  • To decrease washing time, pick a day of the week to wash all of your intimates together instead of cleaning them separately.

  • Wireless, non-foam cup bras will be safe in a lingerie bag in the washing machine since there is no underwire or foam to damage.
