Now that you have in your wardrobe a few bodysuits which have a high quality and you love wearing as they feel super comfortable, you may wonder how can you clean or wash them without damaging the shape or the fabric. And for good reason, because you don’t want to remain without your favourite bodysuit!
Below you can find a few tips when it comes to cleaning your bodysuits without deteriorating them or modifying their shape! If you follow them, your bodysuits will look as brand new all the time!
1. Have more than one bodysuit in your wardrobe
Now that you have tried shapewear and you know that you love it, try and buy a few more pieces. It’s not enough to only own one full body shaper, but a few models in different colours. This way you will be able to rotate them and also you won’t struggle when you want to wear for example a white see through dress and you won’t have a nude bodysuit. So, go and buy a black bodysuit, a nude one and why not a white bodysuit too!
2. Wash your bodysuits by hand
Try and avoid machine washing when it comes to bodysuits or shapewear in general. It’s best to wash them by hand, gently in warm water which is not very hot. This way you won’t damage the bodysuit or the fabric and it will last you more! Try and not be too harsh with the fabric while washing it by hand!
3. Use a special detergent
Try and use gentle detergents like the ones made for washing silk or lingerie. Those are created specially for clothes and accessories that need special attention. They don’t contain alcohol, bleach, dyes, softeners that can damage the shape of your bodysuit.
4. Choose a gentle cycle for machine wash
If you really want to wash your bodysuit by using a washing machine, well, you have to be very careful. Chose the shortest cycle without any rotations, that uses cold water. This way you will avoid damaging your best plus size shapewear. Also, try and put them alone in the washing machine, not with other clothes and also use a lingerie bag to protect them!
5. Air dry all of your shapewear
It’s extremely important not to use your washing machine drying program for any type of shapewear or lingerie, because you will damage it! Nothing compares to the classic air drying outside on a hanger. This way your bodysuits will keep their shape and properties and last you longer.
If you are careful with the use and cleaning of your shapewear items, they will maintain their design and properties and last you longer. This way you won’t have to spend money all the time buying body shapers and also your favourite bodysuit will be in your wardrobe for many years. With proper care, high quality shapewear can last for years without loosing any properties! You just need to pay a little bit of attention while cleaning it!
