UK Women Wash Bras Just 6 Times Per Year - May 3rd 2009, 05:32 PM

Article (Do not click if you can not handle seeing a woman in a bra. )

To be honest, at first I found this so nasty. You sweat and sweat gets on your bra. Ew. I definitely don't wear the same bra for seven straight days. I might wear it twice, but that's pushing it. This article really surprised me.

Probably the worst thing about bras is owning hand washable only bras.

I have to admit I was quite surprised at this...then I saw it was reported by The Daily Express. Then I realised it was most likely wrong. xD

Oh, what the hell?
Where did they get this from?

I'd love to see the study.

I'm proud to say I wear a different bra everyday and wash them all after I've worn them. The longest any of my friends wear a bra without washing it is two days.

Someone at work mentioned this and naturally we were all disgusted.

Where did they find the women for this survey?! I'm pretty sure most women wash their bras more than 6 times a year.

I wash mine after wearing it for 2 days, just for the record. :]

I agree that the study is probably wrong ... I REALLY hope it is!!
Most of my bras are handwash only, I still wash them after 2/3 wears!

This was weird. I doubt it's true. Although I change bras like I change jeans, every 3-4 days, I still think this is odd. Seven days is too long.

Aye, same here. Though, the longest I've worn one was about a week(seven days). Twas on a road trip.

Rofl, I thought it was funny that under the first picture, of someone wearing just a bra, it said "Click here to view larger picture"

And yeah, gross. The most I'll ever go is two days, then I wash 'em


Yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.

Jeez Jer, get all technical on us. The word "gross" fits it well enough.

To anyone here, if you're going this long without washing your bra, I suggest you not.

I don't wash my bras often enough, but still WAAAAY more than this. That's gross. I've worn bras for a week on occasion before, but only in extreme cases. Usually, I'll wear one 3 days tops before changing. And lots of times I change every day. That's just...ew
