Lingerie Care Guide
Luxury lingerie deserves to be treated beautifully, so it’s important to care for your lingerie to preserve its shape, so you can really enjoy it for longer. Here are a few tips that will ensure your lingerie lasts as long as possible.
Hand wash me... please! Delicate lingerie is particularly vulnerable in the washing machine. Underwires can come unhitched from your bra and so doing become misshapen, and delicate fabrics can tangle, crease and/ or shrink. We advise you hand wash your special lingerie with a mild soap, soaking in lukewarm soapy water for no more than half an hour. Please pay particular attention to rings and finger- nails as the fabrics and laces are delicate. Rinse in lukewarm water and please don’t wring before air drying flat - ideally with no direct sunlight to avoid fading of colour or print.
Putting delicate garments in the tumble dryer can damage the fabric causing them to lose their fit. But if you must put your lingerie into the washing machine, place it in a mesh lingerie bag to protect it from other items in the dryer.
Some silk items can be hand washed as above, but it is generally recommended that silk garments are dry cleaned. However, we also recommend that you follow the care labels on your garment as these instructions are guidance from the designer, so they will definitely know how best to care for your luxury piece.
