This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in May of 2020. Washing bras by hand can be a major chore, but tossing them in a machine without protection is risking all sorts of damage. Hooks can snag, straps can get tangled around the agitator, and underwires and pads can lose their shape. These washing bags solve this problem, as they are specifically designed to keep your lingerie protected while allowing them to get thoroughly cleaned.

Editor's Notes

August 28, 2020:

Bra wash bags come in many shapes and forms. Since the flat netted pouches are more suited for washing other delicate garments, we did not add them to this list. Instead, we focused on bags that are specifically for bras. The selection includes egg shapes, cylindrical styles, and spherical designs, such as the Jelly Comb Silicone Protector, which was selected for its ability to withstand repeated dryer cycles.

Of course, you should always air dry bras when possible to prevent the fabric from weakening. In fact, specialists recommend hanging them by the center gore as opposed to the straps. Options like the Tenrai Laundry Set and the Plusmart Mesh have loops on them to allow you to hang your bras, so they can dry quickly without losing elasticity.

Any of the bra washing bags listed here can help extend the life of your lingerie. Still, there are a few minor differences that you should consider. Most options are made of either polyester or nylon mesh to allow soap and water to move into the nooks and crannies. But the thickness of the fabric and tightness of the weave helps determine their durability.

Another thing to consider is the size of the bag. You'll notice that the bags are designed to accommodate a range of cup sizes. However, sports bras and nursing bras tend to use more material in their construction. Therefore, it may be more suitable to use the larger size even though you may wear a small cup.

The zipper or closure is another feature you should carefully examine. While metal zippers tend to last longer, they can also rust. Plastic closures, although rustproof, can get stuck or fall off the track. Nevertheless, many of the designs on this list feature a covering to tuck the zipper head into to prolong use and prevent it from catching onto other garments.

Even though manufacturers claim that the bra hooks won't snag items during the wash cycle, it is still a good idea to fasten the bras before tossing them in the machine. Specifically, when you are washing more than one bra.
