UpperCup staff are specialist in lingerie, swimwear, nightwear and body toning garments and we want to ensure that after your valued purchase that using the care information below will help in keeping your garment in best condition.
Any under wired garments including bras and swimwear require the same care when washing. UpperCup recommend that you always hand wash these items as machine washing can often misshape the wires, shrink the delicate fabrics and cause the wires to push through the fabric. UpperCup also recommend that drying of under wired garments is away from direct sources of heat such as radiators or tumble dryers as these can also damage the wires.
UpperCup recommends to prolong the life of swimwear please ensure that the garment is rinsed in cool tap / fresh water immediately after you have used it. This will help to protect the garment from the damaging effects of suntan lotion, chlorine, saltwater residue and perspiration. Please also avoid the use of fabric softeners as these can also damage Lycra and can degrade many swimwear fabrics. Please ensure that you are always protected from the effects of the sun by using suntan lotion as any swimwear product does not offer protection from the sun's powerful rays and you may still be burnt through your swimwear. UpperCup recommend the application of suntan lotion in advance of putting on your swimwear as many brands of lotion can stain the swimwear fabrics.
UpperCup recommend hand washing of underwear to keep it in best condition. Hot water can damage delicate fabrics, applications, elastics and bindings so cool water when hand washing is recommended. Using cool water will also aid in keeping the colour of the garment and will help to prevent from white fabrics going grey.
UpperCup recommends that in order for these garments to perform as designed that the garment is washed by hand in cool water each day after use.
