    Default How often do you buy new bras?

    Just curious, how often do you buy new bras?

    Anyone know how long a bra is meant to last?

    I buy a few a year but never tend to get rid of the older ones.

    A decent bra should last you 2+ years if worn a couple of times a week and washed and stored correctly

    This might be a topic for a new thread, but how often do you wash bras? After every wear, or just when they start to get sweaty, etc?
