How Often Should You Wash Your Bra

June 23, 2015 2 min read

It's a bit of a dirty little secret among women that we rarely wash our bras. While panties get thrown in the machine all the time, a bra wash can be once in a blue moon. So what's the deal with bra washing anyway? Are we doing it right by not cleaning them all the time, or should we be washing them after every use? We find out your most burning bra-laundering questions: Don't Wash Your Bra After Every Use Good news! Unless you're excessively sweating, you can just toss your bra back in the drawer until about 3 or 4 uses. Over washing your intimates makes the elasticity of the material worn, leaving you with lessened support. If you are outside on a hot day or sweating it out in spinning class while wearing your bra, you may want to wash it. Germs and oils can build up in the fabric after excessive athletic activities. Get to Know What a Wear Is Wearing your bra for a couple of hours around the house and then taking it off doesn't count as one wear. A full day's use, from your morning coffee through your workday to you're evening Netflix binge, counts as a wear. Have a Good Rotation An excuse to bra shop and a good way to keep bras looking their best! Have a decent amount of bras to rotate through to keep the elastics tight and the fit perfectly formed. This leaves you with more options to wear when you're washing a load of bras. Ditch the Dryer The dryer flattens out bra shape, and hanging it to dry can cause stretching in the straps from the weight of wet cups. Lay your bra out and use a towel to pat off excess water. You can also use this method for sports bras. Got any bra preserving tips for us? Let us know!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
