How to take care of your Brooks Run Bras

Back of Brooks Criss-cross run bra

Properly caring for your Run Bras is the best way to ensure they last their expected lifespan and offer consistent performance on all your runs. Not sure what to watch out for? Never fear! We’re here to help.

Is my Run Bra machine washable?

Yes! You’ll want to fasten all hooks before putting your Run Bra in the laundry, but all Brooks Run Bras are machine washable. That said, we do not recommend using the dryer and suggest hang drying them instead. Dryers may be convenient, but they can wear down the fabric and damage the moisture management properties of performance Run Bras and other performance running apparel. If you do happen to use a dryer, do not use any fabric softeners or dryer sheets.

How long should my Run Bra last?

Great question! This can vary from person to person and depends largely on use. In general, though, we expect our Run Bras to last between 6-12 months. Continued use beyond the expected lifespan of our Run Bras will likely result in lowered performance and support over time.
