How long do you keep bras? I was shopping at Lane Bryant this evening and I heard the sales lady tell someone that they only reccommend keeping a bra for six months. Ummm I am sorry but if I spend 60$ on a bra, it better last longer than six months!!!
I've heard 6mths-1yr as a basis. I have to say though, there are a lot of factors to take into consideration. I have a ton of bras. I definitely don't wear them out in 6mths because they don't get that much use.
If you take care of them (wash only in cold water, never put them in the dryer) and they're well made, they can easily last years. I had some from VS (no longer made) that were still in great shape for 7 years. Have some now from Soma that are going on 3 years and still look like new.
