What fabrics are Conturelle lingerie made of?
Conturelle lingerie is made of synthetic fibres, as these fibres are the most comfortable to wear.
What are synthetic fibres and what is so special about them?
Synthetic fibres like elastane, polyamide and polyester have many advantages. They enhance lingerie with
- easy-care and
- crease-resistant properties.
How should I wash lingerie?
You should choose a gentle cycle for delicate lingerie – or even wash it by hand. White laundry should be washed separately from colour laundry to preserve its whiteness for as long as possible.
Which detergent should I use for my lingerie?
Liquid mild detergents or detergents for colour textiles are gentle to fibres and keep colours fresh. At lower temperatures they dissolve better in water than a powder and therefore do not cling to the fine pores of the fabrics. All-purpose detergents should only be used for white laundry due to the brighteners and bleaches they contain.
What do you need a mesh bag for?
Use mesh bags to avoid damage to your lingerie by other pieces of clothing. In addition, this protects bra underwiring and prevents it from coming out in the wash.
Why shouldn’t one use fabric softener?
You should not use fabric softener for lingerie. It may attack elastane fibres contained in delicate, elastic fabrics, which may affect the fit of lingerie.
How often should you wash lingerie?
It is best to wash lingerie directly after wearing, as sweat may attack the fine elastane fibres and cause lingerie to lose its shape.
