Proper Bra Storage Tips

I have a lot of bras. Truthfully, I wear two or three of them all the time—a seamless nude bra and a padded black push-up are my everyday staples. But I can never say no to a pretty bra. Therefore, I have lots of pretty bras all crumpled a drawer. Additionally, last summer I went through a bright bra phase and now I have lots of bright bras crumpled in the drawer, too. Typing that made me cringe a little bit. My bras—pretty, bright or basic—should not be crumpled anywhere!

One of my favorite lingerie retailers, Bella Bella Boutique came to the rescue with some bra storage tips on Facebook. They say that dividing your bras and panties and stacking your bras, like so, will help them keep their shape.

I used to fold my bras and stuff them into a drawer divider, but I like this stacking method much better. And see that pretty eyelash lace in the front? It used to get all bent out of shape. Lying it flat keeps the lace in place and looking pretty. And when I am spending $50 -$90 on a good bra, you can bet I want to keep it in good shape.

During this cleaning adventure I also discovered that Pepper is a big fan of lingerie. I'm not surprised. I'm not surprised at all. Luckily, I had a cat nip mouse on hand to distract her and was able to save that pretty bra from the claws of death.

So tell me, how do you store your bras? Got an intimate apparel storage advice? 


  1. I store mine JUST LIKE THAT! I keep them all in active rotation, when I take one off, I put it in the back and the next morning wear the one in front. Since they're in a sequence, I decided to alternate dark and nude shades so that I'm not wearing all my light colored shirts in a row and then all my dark ones in a row. :P

    1. This is so interesting!! So do you pick out your bra and then decide which shirt to wear based on the bra? Or vice versa? I pick out my shirt first—that's why I'm always wearing the same bra. Practically everything I own requires a nude t-shirt bra.

    2. Bel'angelle has a great bra storage solution. Bras are stacked in a similar way as discussed above yet a lid secures them so that delicate cups are not disturbed or distorted during opening and closing of lingerie drawers. Up to 6 bras may be stacked in one storage solution. Check out

  2. I honestly don't know why I never thought to do that! Duh...VS stores all the bras in the drawer like that! I DO however wash all mine by hand so they will maintain their shape longer, and then dry them over the shower curtain rod. Timmy just has to deal when it's laundry day and there's 12 bras hanging up in the bathroom.
