Definitely get some lingerie wash! We sell a brand called Soak in the shop. We highly recommend it! When you are ready to wash your bras:
1) Fill your sink with warm water.
2) Put 1 tsp of the soap in the water.
3) Put your bras in the water. If you have extra deodorant build put a little bit of extra soap on that area and work it in with your hands or a toothbrush.
4) Let your bras soak for about 20 minutes.
5) Softly ring them out.
6) Lay them on a towel or hang them to dry.
I came to hate wearing my bras because the straps always slipped, no matter if they were new or worn. Hannah recommended these during my fitting and they have made the difference. I don’t hate wearing my bras anymore!
The Strap Doctor. Weird name but SO helpful! My main/forever problem with bras is that the straps always slide off. I used to buy bras that had straps that would adapt to cross cross or use extra hooks that would make me twist like a pretzel to put in place. But that usually meant my straps were too high on my neck. I’ve only been using these for a short time, but they’ve been wildly helpful with keeping my bra straps from slipping. Everything now stays in place! Yay!
I have always had problems with my straps falling down since I first started wearing bras. I'm constantly pulling them back up or back into place--tightening the straps only made them dig in and pull the band up higher than it should have.
I tried the other cushioned silicone straps that Busom Besties sells but they were too bulky for what I wanted them for. Then I saw these and decided to give them a try. I LOVE THEM! I love the fact that they velcro onto the bra itself and has silicone against the skin. There was no shifting or slipping either away from the bra or away from myself. I also love the fact that they will hide under even thin straps.
They stayed put ALL day and I am constantly moving and being pushed and pulled by my 5 kids :) so if you need something to keep your straps in place these are your new best friend.
