Suggested Wash/Care Instructions

• We hope these tips will provide you with some helpful ways to care for your purchases and take the best possible care of your intimate apparel.


• Hand washing when worn by hand removes body oils, preserve colours, shape and elasticity, and extend the life of your undergarments in luke warm water using a good quality but mild laundry soap.

• We suggest not to machine wash under-wired garments that may shrink the fabric, distort the bra or cause the wires to push through the fabric.  However it is Ok to wash your lingerie in a lingerie wash bag using delicate cycle and cold water in your washing machine.

• Cold water helps keep white fabrics from going gray and helps keep coloured garments from fading quickly.

• Hot water can damage delicate fabrics such as lace, embroidery, elastics, binding and fade garment.

• Always wash dark, light and coloured fabrics separately.

• Wash your garment in a soap that contains an essential oil known to deter pests, such as eucalyptus, lavender or cedar.

• Most delicate materials can easily be laundered/cleaned at home such as silk, wool, cashmere, embellished garments, rayon and delicate laces.

• Wash your hosiery separately as bra hooks and fastenings can catch and snap your garment.


• DO NOT put bras or other delicate garments in a dryer as heat can damage the delicate fibres.

• After washing squeeze the water out of your garment and then roll it in a clean dry towel to remove excess moisture or spin the water out in your washing machine

• Let it hang to air-dry or lay flat to dry on a drying rack or dry towel.  Always block garment first.  Blocking simply means shaping the garment back into its original shape.

• Allow to dry away from direct sunlight or heat.
