HOW long should a bra last?
You might think it should last for months, or even a year.
But professional bra fitter Nicola Crook has revealed the surprising truth – that a bra only lasts for around 30 days.
“Do you know how long one of these should last?” Nicola asked as she held up a pink bra in a video on TikTok.
She then gave three options – three months, six months or 12 months.
“Well actually it’s 30 days,” she said.
“That’s if you’ve only got one bra in your bra drawer and you’re wearing it every day.”
In the caption for the video, she added: “You may find the answer shocking as to how long a bra should last.”
But the majority of people in the comments section insisted they don’t get rid of a bra until it’s completely had it, or it breaks.
“I had my last one for 7yrs,” one person wrote.
While another added: “I can wear my bra pretty much everyday and it’s been more then 30 days.”
“As long as they still do their job they stay,” a third commented.
“i’ve been wearing the same one 5 times a week for the past 5 years and it’s still good as new. and that’s a primark t-shirt bra,” someone else weighed in.
“There’s just no way… ” another person agreed.
“They already are the bane of my existence and are wayyyy too expensive. Not gonna spend more on them.
“If i spend £30 on a bra you best believe im wearing it for at least a year,” someone else raged.
To which Nicola replied: “It is not that you can’t, you just end up losing the support as the fabric stretches out.
“If you have more than one bra in rotation your bra will last longer.”
