Ive been meaning to write this for a while, and thought it would be useful for all of you who own, or know people who own, lingerie. After all, wearing it is great, but caring for it is a MUST!

Washing

Ah thank you lovely! Very helpful, now I have confidence hand washing my pieces because I know what to do exactly now!!

sgeine:

@tomtom8181 do not put them in the dryer, ever. Please don't give misinformation. Use woolite, never washing machine. Coming from someone who's bought over $50k of Agent Provocateur and others for my wife I would be friggin pissed had I destroyed an entire load of lingerie that way. Everything the OP said is accurate. What I do is the following:

Take a stainless steel mixing bowl (as many as needed)

Put a couple tablespoons of (white or colour) woolite depending on what you're washing

Fill them with water and stir the soap in

Dunk in like colours until their soaked. Let them sit about 5 minutes. If you have stains from bleeding or whatever use a microfibre cloth soaked in the same woolite water and rub it out. If it's difficult use oxy gel.

If it's he first wash use a separate bowl per set otherwise colours will bleed.

Squish the garments every now and then to run the soapy water through the fabric.

After about 30 minutes I put them into a extremely clean bath tub and use a hand shower to rinse every piece individually and thoroughly.

I squeeze the water out and put them on a drying rack. Do not wring the water out. That will kill the garment

A couple things to note

Drying shrinks

Drying destroys by putting a ton of wear on them

Washers/Dryers make fine silks crunchy

Washers and dryers aggressively rub the fabrics together and that's how they get killed.

Steam your chiffons and other silks once dry as squeezing the water out will make them wrinkly.

I use a parfum specifically for lingerie from Guerlain. I believe it was about $50 and hasn't caused any issues.

All these same things apply to your bathing suits as well if you actually get them wet πŸ˜‚ Rinse off immediately. They tend to bleed colour a lot. Once you're home do the above process. Never under any circumstances put a bathing suit in the dryer.

I store all the sets in their own silk garment bags which is great to keep things organised.

When buying higher end lingerie I always pick up the whole set (bra, suspenders, thong, overt, brief, gown, etc) as almost all of it is seasonal and you'll never see the other pieces again. Even though it's made it a couple to several thousand dollars per set it's been worth it.

Anyway, hope this helps. Don't bother with all this if it's Victoria's Secret or fredericks. This is more for $300-600 pairs of panties... lol

Stick and poke

Group Thread in tattoo

I’m wondering if anyone has their own stick and poke tattoos. Show em’. I’m thinking of doing one myself in glow in the dark ink.

My step-daughter did one with her girlfriend when she was 15... we had to pretend to disapprove.
