How Often Should Y(hue) Replace Undies?
We all have that one pair of panties that is closer to rags than riches. We often neglect the item of clothing that is closest to us, opting for years old undies that have lost their luster. We all know we should probably replenish our underwear supply at some point. But what is the critical consensus on operation intimates?
It’s time for us to give y(hue) the low down on your down under. Bodywear re-ups depend on a number of factors such as: fabric quality, color vibrance, and stretching. Although there is no certain answer as a number of independent factors contribute to this question, a simple google search will tell you that experts recommend you should replace your underwear every 6 to 12 months. This is even more critical for bodywear that embodies your true hue, as individual washing methods can affect color payoff.
For our true hues, we recommend replacing every 6 months for optimal color payoff and perfect shade match. Washing habits and recurring wear can cause color to fade over time, so it is imperative that you regularly replace your bodywear so that your essentials stay invisible.
