Care advice for sports apparel varies between brands, so please always read the specific manufacturers guidelines for how to wash and care for your apparel.
To extend the lifespan of your sports apparel Sports Bras Direct recommends that you hand wash them in cold water as this prolongs the elastic properties of the fabric. Use a mild detergent and avoid fabric softeners which can compromise the garment’s moisture wicking abilities.
Although some care labels state you can tumble dry on low heat it is advisable to line dry to make them last longer as heat from the dryer can deteriorate the elastic. The advantage is that the technical moisture wicking fibres of sports apparel tend to dry very quickly, so you won’t have to wait long.
If you are struggling to remove odour, try pre-soaking in a solution of one cup of baking soda and water or one part vinegar to four parts water. Let them soak for an hour before washing.
