Woman sparks debate after revealing how many times her friend washes her bra

Woman sparks debate after revealing how many times her friend washes her bra

The TikToker has sparked a debate after revealing the shocking amount her friend washes her bra

A woman on TikTok has sparked a debate after revealing the shocking amount her friend washes her bra.

Now, the internet has made it pretty clear that people have very different ideas of how cleaning and washing should look like in their household.

We have had the same debate about towels, duvets, and now we’re talking bras.

But one woman called Desyr was left completely astonished, after finding out just how many times her friend washes her bra.

Now, according to the experts, we need to be cautious about over-washing our bras as it can damage the elasticity of the bra which is pretty crucial for proper support - AKA the entire reason we wear bras in the first place.

One bra fitter, Kimmay, who goes by @hurraykimmay on TikTok, explained: "As a bra fitter since 2005, I do have some insight on this.

"If it's a sports bra or if it was a really sweaty day, wash it right away.

“If it's a basic bra that you're wearing just normally then I usually suggest washing your bra every three or four wears."

Kimmay explained that one of the main reasons you should wash a bra was to 'get rid of all the dirt and grime that has collected on the elastic' as that mess can 'cause it to break down early'.

Well, it's clear Desyr's friend hadn't got the memo as she began by explaining that her pal, who she did not name, once told the group chat how often she washes her bra.

"I'm now just curious, like, how often does everyone wash their bras?" the TikToker asked viewers. "Like, I need to know what the standard is amongst women everywhere."

She finished off the short clip asking people: "What's the average? What's the most common for bra washing duration? Because, apparently, we are not all the same."

Desyr's pal revealed that she washed the garment just once a year.

People clearly couldn't wait to share their verdict on the matter, with many revealing they washed theirs every single day.

One TikTok user claimed: "Change ALL underwear everyday and wash. Oh my god what is wrong with people?!"

"I change my bra everyday," penned a second. "You change your underwear every day. A bra is underwear, imagine the boobie sweat.

“I only wear clothes once and wash them."

And a third hit out: "Wear it once and wash it."

Others, however, waited a whole lot longer before washing theirs.

"About a month after it starts burning my eyes while I'm wearing it," joked one viewer. "I'm joking but the truth isn't incredibly far..."

A second quipped: "Whenever it ends up in the wash - might be a week, might be a month, might be a year!"

"Every 1-2 months… when it looks or smells dirty," admitted another.

A fourth piped up: "When one finds its own way in the washing basket..."

"When it looks dirty? Or when I find another I like the same to wear," added a fifth, while a sixth chimed in: "Until it changes colour?"
