Take care of your lingerie
TREAT YOUR UNDERWEAR WITH CARE
It’s important that when you’re washing your underwear, you treat it with care. Careless washing will wear out your underwear’s elasticity, colour, and durability much sooner than you or we would like. Besides, we want your Lounge pieces to be as long-lasting as possible!
MACHINE WASH OR HAND WASH?
Honestly, underwear care definitely changes with each style, so naturally, how you wash your best pieces changes too.
Cotton pieces can be washed on a 30°C heat in your washing machine while your more delicate lace pieces can require a little bit more Lounge love when it comes to washing. Hand washing is the most suitable option for these items and highly recommended by us.

HAND WASHING GUIDE
If you've got a bit of extra time on your hands, hand washing is an absolute dream for your delicate underwear and also a must for some of our more delicate pieces.
Satin bras, lace lingerie and stretch-fit sets will thank you for taking the time to hand wash them. Even cotton and jersey items can benefit from being treated to a hand wash every now and then.
Separate your darks from your lights (this is an absolute must) and prepare a sink or bowl of room temperature water with a small amount of mild detergent added.
Treat each item carefully and don't scrunch, squeeze or twist your underwear. Instead, swirl them slowly and let the items soak and clean gently for a few minutes in the soapy water.
Feel free to gently massage any stains or areas which are in need of a bit more love and attention.
Once you're happy and they're looking and feeling fresh, remove your items from the water and leave them to dry on a fresh towel or drying rack.
