    Every wear even if just a hour. I wash everything after every wear.

    Mine have to last years, as it's so expensive for me to replace them. I can't just buy bras from department stores. I have a really narrow back but big cup and it's very difficult to find bras that fit properly. Plus I despise moulded cup bras as they make me look 10x bigger.

    Every time someone in my family hosts an Intimo party, so once every 5-6 months or so.

    I wash mine after a few wears in winter, and after every second wear in summer.

    As for buying them, they have to last me a while. .. so whenever they get stretched out of shape.

    I wear around 3/4 pairs a week (more for special occasions) and I find that 8mths is probably about the average length mine last (from the cheap to very expensive).

    I have a fair big bust so I find that they start stretching out of proportion about 5/6 months in but aren't doing their job by 8mths.

    I would guess my bras get replaced after 2 years wear, maybe 3

    For those trying to get a but of longevity out of their bras, I've learnt that when hanging them on the clothesline, hang by the bridge in the middle of the cups. If you hang it up by either end, the water in it will weigh it down and stretch it, whereas when hung by the bridge it dries evenly without unnecessary weight.
    Also, put it on properly without spinning it around
