Reasons to Have Greater Quantity of Quality Bras
Many women don’t seem to know, or care, that the bra they wear has already expired and cannot function properly anymore. So they walk around in bras that should have been thrown away and replaced months or years ago. The question arises that how long a bra should last, or how often should it be replaced. The answer is that it depends on several factors. The point is that a bra, even if it is of good quality, does not last for many years.
There are many warning signs indicate that it is time to say goodbye to a bra. Here are some of them.
- When the boobs are drooping and the bra is not doing its job of supporting them;
- When wires get broken and poke through the cups;
- When the bra cups have become misshapen;
- When weight is gained or lost and a new size bra is needed;
- When the elastic does not bounce back anymore because it has been stretched out;
- When the tightest hook is used, yet the bra still rides up the back or roams around.
The number of bras that one wear is a factor that affects the lifetime of the bra. If more bras of good quality are in wardrobe, they need to be replaced less often. While it may cost more upfront, one might realize savings in the long run. So we FinallyBra always advise against wearing the same bra consecutively for multiple days or wearing few bras weekly.
Some surveys show that women usually wear four bras or less, however the right quantity should be from seven to ten bras. This way you are allowed to rotate bras, like wearing three or four for a week, and the other set for another week. The more bras you have, the less often you wear them and need to replace them, as they last longer.
Speaking of quality bras, they are like shoes and clothes where some are constructed better than the rest. Chic and lacey bras are lovable, with sheer tulle and thin straps. However, you know that they don't normally last long. Additionally, some brands, even the popular ones, are not made well. When a bra is priced high, it doesn't necessarily mean the quality is better. On the other hand, if a quality bra is at a reasonable price, try stocking on them. Stock up also on your favorite bra styles, so you will not be always reaching for the one and only favorite everyday.
Investing in good quality bras is a good idea. Look for reliable stitching, sturdy materials and reliable elastic. If taken good care of properly, quality bras do not stretch out easily and can serve for a long period of time.
