    It's true if you machine wash them too often. I always hand wash them in warm water with normal washing powder and they last a lot longer.

    Technically you should wash them by hand, in warm water. That'll prolong the life, but I can never be bothered

    Elle MacPherson bras are the best, I always machine wash them at 40 and they last about 2 years before they start to go lumpy... so it depends on the quality too.

    Well that's what I just did, so fingers crossed! It's new so hasn't been washed before, so *hopefully* it should remain lumpy-free. Lol I'm so fussy about bras

    You need to wash at 60 to get the grease and oils out of clothes. I usually wash my bra's at 40 which is a compromise, but handwashing them will do **** all to clean them. They say handwash on the label because then they are subject to less wear and tear so they last longer, and in case something does go wrong in the wash the manufacturer can say that you were in the wrong. Mine last long enough being machine washed anyway, I've never had to throw one away from being worn out.

    If you buy decent padded bra's they don't lose their shape in the wash. If you like cheap bra's then just reshape them whilst they are wet.
