    I have a few bras which I have had for about a year and they are perfectly fine, where as others go retarded after only a few washes.

    Is there an unwritten rule for how long you can keep bras and knickers for?! Is 2 years considered too long to keep knickers for?!

    So yeah, spill the beans :rolleyes:

    Well if there's nothing wrong with it then I don't see why you shouldn't keep it! My knickers don't usually last a year because I just buy cheap ones that look nice and as soon as they start fading or the colour goes funny I throw them away. Same with bras - when they feel loose I throw them away. I bought a bra for £40 and it's been over a year since I've had it and it's still perfect so I don't see why it should be binned!

    Oh and I wouldn't want to keep knickers for 2 years.. it's different with bras.

    i just throw it out when it needs to be thrown out. knickers this is usually about a year? when the colour runs, or they start to pill or loose stretch.
    bras? hmm, tend to do it when they start to get loose, or in the case of lace ones when they loose he stretch in the cups of start to pill

    if there nothing wrong with them then there no reason to throw them away

    you could make money from ones that you don't want by selling them as there is a market for them especially in japan, can make quite a bit of money by doing that

    Erm probably only when they are starting to fall apart. I dunno, its not really something i regularly think about, if they are breaking then they need throwing, other than that i dont see the point.

    I feel trampy, but I have some underwear 2, 3 years old. I just throw it out when it starts to look a bit sorry for itself. I do have some good quality underwear though, and some I don't wear too often, so that may be why.

    I don't have a time limit, I just chuck stuff when it no longer fits me/is worn out. That goes for all my other clothes. I still have pants that I bought when I was around 14.....I'm now 21.

    edit: just because I feel like a total scab now, I have thrown some underwear away. I find lace knickers tend to wear out quite quickly, for instance.

    I still wear my nice bras from when I was in school. There's nothing wrong with them and they're still perfect. Pants I would keep at 3 years at best.

    I suppose it depends how well you keep them but I always like to "update" my knickers usually every two years cause I end up in the underwear section and start thinking "oooh those are pretty they'll look good on me". XD

    I stop wearing them after they get tatty but i throw them out when i have an underwear drawer cull (leap years usually). Most of time they just sink down to the ne'er-worn underbelly of the underwear drawer along with my suspender belt, thongs and bikini. I always wonder if one day i'll be emptying it for a cull and a sedimentary rock with a bra fossil will drop out.
