 Lingerie care

  • In order for the lingerie to retain its shape, colour, elasticity and functionality for as long as possible, it is important to inform the customer of its proper care. Symbols which determine the care for each fabric can be found on all sewn-in labels.
  • Handwash bras, especially underwire bras and foam-padded bras, by gently rubbing the fabric. Reshape the bra after washing.
  • If machine washing, wash bras on the gentle cycle with or without agitation. Wash the bras in a net bag or lingerie bag which protects the bras from losing their original shape.
  • For washing white lingerie use universal washing powder. For coloured lingerie use gentle washing powder. Do not use fabric softener as it reduces the strength of the fibres and increases the possibility of deformation. Fabric softener also fills the pores between the fibres, which makes it impossible for the garment to absorb and conduct as much moisture as it did in the beginning.
  • Special care must be taken when washing silk lingerie. Use gentle washing powder or hand washing powder, such as the one for wool, and always use the hand wash cycle.
  • Do not sun-dry lingerie. Direct exposure to sunrays can cause yellowing.
  • With most bras ironing is not necessary after drying.
