5 Reasons You Should Clean Your Boobuddy Breast Support Band Regularly (And How To!)

5 Reasons You Should Clean Your Boobuddy Breast Support Band Regularly (And How To!)

By now, you’ve probably realised that the Boobuddy Breast Support Band is the gift that keeps on giving. It has the power to significantly reduce the vertical and lateral movement of your female assets, keeping you comfortable and secure during any type of workout; be that a light jog right through to full contact, high impact sports.

And although the band will never let you down, there are some things that you can be doing to ensure the longevity and efficiency of the product; including giving it a good old wash from time to time! But why is washing the Boobuddy Band so beneficial?

  1. Irritation - Breast Support Bands can become irritating for a number of reasons, but the main driver of discomfort is the accumulation of bacteria and yeast. And as these two grow in number on your band, they also grow in number under your breasts, which will ultimately lead to further irritation and rashes; even when the band is off!

  2. Collects Dirt & Sweat - The Boobuddy supports during times of great physical activity. And what happens when we move? We sweat! All of your hard work will seep into and stay within the polyester, elastomer and nylon threads that make up the Boobuddy band.

  3. The Smell - There’s no worse thought than “am I the one who smells?” Indeed the gathering of sweat and dirt and yeast and bacteria will all contribute towards your most treasured support band becoming a little heavy on your sense of smell. A quick clean is the perfect way to remedy this unavoidable outcome.

  4. Acne Breakout - Breakouts aren’t just reserved to the face. The sensitive skin around the under-arms, breasts and chest area is just as likely to experience acne as the result of close contact with a dirty band. It’s time to break-up with your breakouts, so give your band a clean!

  5. Discolouration - When the Boobuddy, or any piece of clothing for that matter, comes into repetitive contact with deodorant over long periods of time without washing, its fibres will start to turn yellow. So to keep your band looking clean, fresh, and stain-free with a simple wash!

“Simple you say?” That’s right! Washing and caring for your treasured Boobuddy isn’t rocket science. We recommend washing the band by hand with warm, clean water, and kind-to-skin detergent; as this will allow the Boobuddy to retain its shape and elasticity. And leave the tumble dryer out of the picture! Instead, let the band drip-dry on its own; this will ensure its longevity!

Although there’s no official guideline to how often you should do this, we recommend cleaning the Boobuddy at least once to twice a week, depending on the level of use. Love your Boobuddy, and it will love and support you until the end of time!
