Medicare will only cover purchases from medical supply stores.
How to Care for Your Bras
Hand wash in cool water and hang to dry. If machine washing, hook bras and place in a mesh bag. We recommend the use of Ovacion Soap or Forever New rather than detergent. Detergents (including “free and clear”) will quickly destroy the spandex causing them to stretch out. Braserie, Dearie! carries everything you need to keep your bras lasting longer.
How Long Should Bras Last?
It all depends on you! It is wise to have a wardrobe of three to five bras which are rotated throughout the week and washed after one to three wears with a lingerie wash (not detergent). Bras must never be placed in a dryer. A well-cared-for bra should last six months or up to a year. Special-occasion bras may last for years. Sports bras should be replaced more often. When your bra starts moving up your back, straps begin to fall, becomes uncomfortable, or shows signs of wear, it is time to replace it.
Because the health and safety of our customers and employees is our priority, appointments are required. The door may be locked during busy days so please ring the bell. (The bell doesn’t always work, so please knock if you don’t get a response.) Fitting rooms and tape measures are routinely sanitized after each fitting. Due to the shipping crisis, expect delays in shipments. We thank you for your patience.
Due to the intimate nature of our products, and for the health and safety of our customers, no returns are accepted.
