The zipper garage is the small piece that covers the end of the zipper- it helps prevent the zipper from catching or snagging nearby clothes when you're wearing it. But when you're washing your sports bra, it's important to remove it, because a wash cycle can damage it rather easily.
Place your sports bra and bust pads into a laundry bag, and place the bag into your washing machine.
Only wash your sports bra (inside the laundry bag) on a delicate cycle using a light detergent. Additionally, it's best to wash your bra without other apparel in the washing machine at the same time.
Remove your sports bra and pads from the laundry bag, and lay each item out flat to dry. Never place your SHEFIT sports bra in a machine dryer, as this can easily damage or shrink it.
Sometimes it's just best to do things by hand, and washing your sports bra is certainly one of those occasions. Since they are rather small, it won't take you but a few minutes from start to finish.
Here's how you hand wash a SHEFIT sports bra:
Drop a small amount of mild laundry detergent into a plugged sink or water basin, and create a solution that is 3 parts water and 1 part detergent. Keep your water temperature somewhere between cold and room temperature.
Place your sports bra into the detergent and water solution and begin massaging the solution into the entire bra. You want to work up a soap-like appearance across the entire article - suds, and bubbles all over.
Unplug your sink or empty your water basin so that no soap remains, then run your sports bra under clean water and massage the clean water into the sports bra. Your job is done when you can no longer feel or see suds in the water runoff.
Remove your rinsed sports bra and lay it flat to air dry. Remember, you should never machine dry your SHEFIT sports bra.
Just because SHEFIT sports bras are high-performance doesn't mean caring for them is a high-maintenance affair. Machine washing prep takes a minute, and even handwashing takes all of 5 minutes or less.
It's a quick way to ensure it feels and performs like a new sports bra every time.
Have a look below for several common questions about caring for a SHEFIT sports bra.
It's suggested to replace any sports bra every 6-8 months, and with proper care, a SHEFIT sports bra is built to meet or exceed that lifespan. SHEFIT's high-quality materials, like its 2-way stretch, and premium construction allow it to meet these timeline expectations.
Since sports bras are typically washed more often than regular bras, they often have a higher replacement frequency. And when taken care of appropriately, you're far likelier to extend the lifespan of your sports bra, be it SHEFIT or otherwise.
If machine washing a SHEFIT bra, fasten and zip all components of the bra, remove any pads, place all the items into a laundry bag and wash on a delicate cycle. If washing by hand, massage detergent into the bra and rinse thoroughly. With either method of washing, always lay flat to air dry.
Don't put SHEFIT bras in a machine dryer; always lay them flat to air dry. Because of the high-performance materials and unique construction of each bra - be itUltimate Sports Bra or otherwise - machine drying increases the likelihood of damaging or shrinking your bra.
