    I can't think of anything that is more than 'one wear'.

    I'm pretty clean in both areas, but just because you can see/smell dead skin cells and dried sweat on your bra doesn't mean it's not there.

    I apologize if you feel judged, I've just never entertained the idea of wearing stuff again after one wear, it would never be allowed while we were growing up.

    I don't want to even think about the amount of washing we would have if I didn't re wear some clothing (jeans for example). I personally wash my bras after about 4 wears.. And yes, I wear clean undies every day.

    I have 3 bras in rotation and probably wash them once a fortnight unless I've worn them exercising or on a hot day. I live in a cold climate and they never smell!

    And the ones I wear cost $60 each so I can't buy more.

    No, of course it doesn't...but that doesn't mean it's a problem. Do you wash your pillow case after every use? It seems such a strange idea to wash everything even if it doesn't look, smell or feel unclean.

    I wear a clean bra every day. I live in a cool climate but I'd still worry about them becoming a bit smelly as they are right under my arm pits - not that I've noticed I have smelly armpits very often!

    Must admit I hadn't really thought about it before, just assumed that they were a one wear item. I have 7 bras, (all from Target) and I guess because I'm a small cup size finding something that fits and is comfortable has never really been an issue either so I can afford a cheaper bra too.

    My bras don't match my undies and I've never brought a matching set!

    It is a problem, not washing them enough ruins them, ruins the elasticity and the support they give which is especially important for those with bigger busts. What a waste of money having to replace bras more often than you would have to if you just washed them more frequently.

    Every 2 days,
    I only buy undies that match my bras but I can't wear the silky undies that I love as they give me thrush badly so I have to use cotton ones.

    I wash mine usually every day or second day, depends what I've done and how sweaty I've gotten.

    And I do own matching sets but there only for special times or if I just want to feel better about myself. But then again majority of my underwear is interchangeable and although not sets looks good together IYKWIM.

    I have about 2 bras in rotation and wash them once a fortnight. The ones I wear cost about $60-100 each too so I can't afford to buy more. And generally I find that my boobs change size a little, so generally I need to buy bras of a different size before they die due to not washing enough.
