Twice -- wash in mesh bag in cold water, any liquid soap and hang up anything stretchy to dry. Drip dry keeps the stretchy pants and panties in good shape longer too.

Once. I machine wash them with all my other clothes and they get hung up to dry. I do not put them in the dryer. They are underwires and the heat of the dryer would break down the wire.

2-3, and then they get washed in a lingerie bag, and air-dried. Years ago, I learned that they shouldn't be worn on consecutive days because it doesn't allow the elastic to recover, so I always alternate a few throughout the week, even if they are the same style/color.

I wear it once and then wash it. I have been doing this since I was 20 years old, 1974.

I wash mine out in the bathroom sink every 2 or 3 days, depending on how sweaty I've been. I've lost too many bras to the hooks being ripped out or twisted in the washer, so I wash them by hand.

Sports bras ... When they walk away on their own. LOL And since they have no hardware, they go in the washer but not the dryer.

As a guy, this topic feels yucky. I realize any male commentary isn't particularly welcome, but what about spraying them after a few wears and giving them a day off in between wears (probably by using something else instead)?

I have a bazillion bras. Seriously way too many.. But it allows me to not worry about laundering my bras very often. I will wash a bra after 4 or 5 wearings, unless I did yard work or something of that nature, of course. Sports bras get washed after one wearing. And since I usually go through 2 each day, during the week, workout clothes make up the bulk of my laundry.
