The BraTree

The Hottest Closet Accessory is Here

Women love their accessories, and no matter how many we have it’s never enough. We still need the right color/style/pattern/length to complete the perfect outfit. Yet as our collection grows, it all ends up a tangled mess in a dresser or jewelry table drawer. The women’s accessory solution is here: the Bra Tree.

No more rummaging and untangling to find undergarments and add the finishing touches to your outfit. The Bra Tree is your complete solution to accessory organization.

Bra’s and Panties

Necessity is the mother of invention. Keep your bra’s in good shape and have a designated drying place (as you know, bra’s should never go in the dryer). Keep them organized by color or style. You can do the same with your underwear.

Lingerie and Bathing Suits

You have that drawer with your folded intimates: those for special occasions and the ones you wear just for you to feel sexy. You can now have them hanging on a Bra Tree not only to keep them organized, but also to keep the creases out. Have matching sets paired or hang separately for mix and match fun. Bathing suits can be treated the same.

Scarves and Belts

Whether you only wear scarves during cold weather or year-round as part of your personal style, a Bra Tree is great for keeping them organized. Separate by color, length, or style. Hang them paired with a matching belt, or have the belts also organized.

Jewelry

No more knotted chains in your jewelry box. Hang necklaces according to length or paired with matching bracelets.

Any way you hang it, your closet and your drawers have never looked so good. With 2 levels of 6 hooks each, you have the ultimate accessory hanger that will eliminate the tangled mess that would inevitably cause damage. Contact us today to find your perfect fit!

What’s Better for a Breastfeeding Mom? Sexy Bra or Comfort?

Getting ready to become a breastfeeding mom? You’ll definitely need some new bras. But whats better? Sexy bra or comfort?

Wearing Sexy Bras While Breastfeeding

During the early days of motherhood, feeling sexy can be challenging. Your body’s still recovering from everything it’s been through with labor and delivery. Plus you’re likely to be tired and sleep deprived with a newborn under your care. During such times, a sexy bra can offer a great lift to your self-image. Also, it can help get you in the mood for resuming intimate relations with your spouse. However, there is a big downside to wearing a sexy bra while breastfeeding, and that’s the fact that it can be uncomfortable to wear.

Wearing Comfortable Nursing Bras

When wearing a bra that’s specifically made for breastfeeding, you won’t have to worry about comfort being an issue. Thus, you can easily wear the bra throughout the day and into the night. That’s great considering how you’ll probably want to wear a bra while sleeping to provide some support to your now larger breasts. However, there is a con to the typical nursing bra, and that is how they’re usually not all that attractive in appearance.

Owning Some of Each

Since there are pros and cons to both sexy bras and comfortable nursing bras, you’re probably best to own some of each. This way, you can dress for comfort when at home with your new baby, and then simply change into a sexier bra when going out or having some alone time with your spouse.

Not sure what to do with all of your new bras? Contact us to learn how the Bra Tree can help store both your comfortable nursing bras and your sexy bras.

Give Your Bra a Long Life: Tips for Bra Care

The average price of  a bra in the United States is around $60, and most experts recommend that a woman have at least five bras to rotate during the work week, plus extra “special occasion” bras. This makes bras a major expense for most women: owning six average-priced bras will set you back $360. In addition, experts say that bras need to be replaced every 12 to 18 months, and more often for nursing bras or extra-large cup sizes.

Proper care of your bra will significantly extend its lifetime, saving you time and money. The following bra care tips gleaned from a variety of experts can help you keep your bras stronger, longer. Keep in mind that the more bras you own, the less often you’ll have to wear them and the longer they’ll last.

Wash Often.

Experts advise that you wash your bra frequently. Susan Nethero, known as the “bra whisperer” recommends washing a bra after wearing it twice. And Cindy Johnson, owner of SOL in Denver, says you should wash your bra after each wearing. The reason? According to Johnson, washing often will actually help your bra to last longer, because bras are made of gentle fabrics that break down with body oils. Frequent washing helps them maintain their structure and elasticity.

Hand Wash Your Bras.

While not a hard and fast rule, in a Huffington Post article on bra care the author noted that “each and every expert we spoke to said that hand washing your bras…is the best way to prolong their lives.” Bras should always be washed in cool or cold water with a gentle soap; never use bleach. Many bra experts recommend using baby shampoo, and noted that some gentle cleaners, including Woolite, contain bleach and should be avoided.

If you must wash your bra in a machine, always use the gentle cycle and cold water. You should clasp your bra before putting in the machine to prevent the clasps from tearing fabric, and using a mesh laundry bag is a good idea to prevent twisting and snagging.

Always Hang Dry.

Although the experts say that bras can be washed in the machine, hang drying them is a must—no exceptions. Bras and other delicate lingerie items are not meant to withstand the heat of a mechanical dryer, and this will damage them quickly.

If you need a way to hang your bras, check out the Bra Tree®, a two-tiered hanger with a swivel hook that allows it to hang in any direction, and a total of twelve (12) smooth hooks for storing bras and other delicate items. The Bra Tree® is truly a unique and innovative item that can be used for both hang drying and organization of your lingerie and swimwear, or even scarves and belts.

Underwire or No Wire, Five Tips on How to Love Them Both

It has been a great fashion debate for decades as to whether a woman should wear underwire bras or bras with no wires. Every woman has her own opinion about what bra works best. Whichever side you choose in this war is totally up to you.

Every woman can give her own personal story on why underwire or no wire is better. The truth is, you like what you like. Some women claim that underwire is way too uncomfortable and hard to take care of. Some women would swear that underwire is the best way to accent the breasts and define the breast area.

The purpose of the underwire is to round out the breasts and give them a lift. Underwire is great for those who like them. Even liking just a sports bra is a personal choice. However, you should know just how to take care of whatever bra you choose.

To get the most out of a bra underwire or not, here are five tips to taking care of them:

  1. Remember that underwire is picky. Underwire can work itself out of the bra and end up poking you later. They can also work themselves out of the bra when you least expect it. To keep this from happening never stuff them in drawers, or the washing machine.
  2. Wash all of them by hand! Whether your bras have a wire or not, you can save wear and breakdown of your bras by washing them by hand. Lace and hooks can get caught up in other clothes and the washing machine.
  3. Use hand wash friendly soap! A lot of bras are made of delicate materials and detergent can also break them down. Use a detergent that is made just for hand washing intimates.
  4. Use a Bra Tree organizer to dry them and store them. The Bra Tree will keep you from using the shower rod or the door knobs.
  5. When you get home after a long hard day at work, hang your bra up to keep it off the floor or stuffed in the hamper. If your bra needs to be cleaned, then clean it and hang it back on the Bra Tree. This way you always have a clean bra ready to go.

Following these simple tips will keep your bras fresh and organized. Also you will save money in the long run, because you will not need to buy bras as often. To get your very own Bra Tree or have any questions, please contact us!

Three Tips for Picking a Good Sports Bra

Getting ready to make good on your promise to yourself in regards to working out more? Then you’ll need a new sports bra. Discover three tips for picking a good sports bra to wear for your workouts below.

Try Before You Buy

Ordering consumer goods online is definitely easier than going to the stores. However, for this particular purchase, it is worth your while to go directly to a store in your local area. That’s because it will give you the opportunity to try on the sports bra before you buy. Also, it will make comparing various sports bras a lot simpler.

Move Around in the Sports Bra

When trying on the sports bra, don’t just stand and pose. Move around in it. Jump up and down. Run in place. Use movements that are similar to the ones you’re likely to use for the type of exercises you’re planning on doing. This will allow you to accurately gauge whether or not the sports bra would be able to offer enough support for your breasts during your workout routine.

Choose a Pretty One

To increase your fondness of working out, try picking a pretty sports bra. The thought of getting to wear beautiful workout gear will help to get you excited about working out. Also, buying an attractive sports bra will allow you to proudly show it off once you’re no longer shy about exercising with just a sports bra on top.

Once you’re able to pick out a good sports bra, it’s time to hang it on the Bra Tree. Contact us if you have any questions about using the bra tree to hang your sports bra.

The Bra Tree: the ultimate clutter eliminator

Listen up, ladies! With all of the underwear items we collect, organizing our essentials can be a hassle. Drawers are much-needed for storage, but as we all know, they don’t really organize anything. Instead, they just hide the mess. Now, there is finally some relief from the never-ending hunt for specific bras, panties, lingerie, and more! Check out the Bra Tree, the ultimate clutter eliminator.

The Bra Tree is the one and only bra and lingerie organizer on the market and is the optimal solution for helping you declutter and save yourself from a lifetime of messy drawers! Keep reading for some great ways to use the Bra Tree.

Bras: Have you ever been on a hunt for a specific bra, but your unruly drawers slow you down? Or found your bras hooked together in a giant tangle of straps? The Bra Tree is the perfect fix for those time-consuming bra woes.

Undies: Everyone has that one drawer that is designated for underwear. And most of the time it is jam-packed with mountains of undies in every color and style. Arranging your underwear drawer may seem like an impossible feat, but the Bra Tree can help you conquer it.

Lingerie: Stuffing lingerie into drawers may seem like the only option, but unfortunately it is really just a good way to ruin it.

Separate all of your pieces on the Bra Tree to keep everything in excellent condition for that much-needed steamy night.

Swimwear: Nothing is more frustrating than packing your things to go to the beach and having to hunt down both pieces of your bikini. The Bra Tree stops that teeny bikini from disappearing by keeping it in one easy-to-find spot.

Accessories: Scarves, belts, and necklaces … oh my! Accessories like these can be hard to organize. Scarves can be torn and frayed, belts can take up a lot of space, and necklaces can get easily scratched and tangled. The Bra Tree makes managing items like these simple by keeping them unharmed and organized.

Better Bra Care Taken up A Notch

In today’s fast paced world, who has time to dig through the bra drawer looking for the right color or even a specific one? All that shifting and squishing causes such damage to under wire and padding, and makes everything all twisted up together. We say no more! It’s time to treat yourself to the Bra Tree. The Bra Tree is a hanging organizer that makes the drawer dig a thing of the past.

The Bra Tree was born on a night when it took 15 minutes digging through, and damaging the bras all stuffed in a drawer. There just had to be a better way than this. The best way to maintain a bra’s integrity and shape is to hang it, but who has room to hang each bra on a hanger in the closet? Now anyone can.

Taking proper care of your bra is the only way for it to last. It’s a good idea to have several bras so you can rotate them. You should not wear your bra more than 3 times a week, and never consecutive days. The best bra care is hand washing:

>Fill the sink with cool water and a couple tablespoons of mild liquid detergent. Soak your bra for about 15 minutes. This allows the soap to penetrate through the entire garment.

>Gently and thoroughly rub all parts of the bra including the shoulder and back straps.

>Run cool water over the entire bra until the water runs clear. This is the best way to rinse the dirt and soap out of the material.

>Place the bra on a towel and place a towel on top. Gently press to remove all excess water.

>Hook clasps and fix cups prior to hanging to air dry.

Of course, not everyone has the time to hand wash intimates. If you must use a washing machine for your bra, hook clasps and tighten shoulder straps before placing it in a garment bag. Using a garment bag lessens the stress put on the bra and helps prevent it from tangling with other clothing and washing machine parts. Put the machine on gentle cycle and cool rinse. Use a mild detergent. NEVER dry your bra in the dryer. Hang to air dry after checking that clasps are still hooked and cups are fixed.

The best hanger to hang your bras on to dry and for storage is the Bra Tree. It is an organizer, a space saver, and a multitasker. Not only can you hang your bras, but all intimates, lingerie, and swimsuits.

Never dig for a bra again. Contact us today to discover your perfect Bra Tree.

10 Tips to Caring For Your Favorite Swimwear

 

IMG_4329-300x199 10 Tips to Caring  For Your Favorite Swimwear

 

1. Wash Your Brand New Suit. Here’s a trick that will prolong the life of your new bathing suit.
Add a teaspoon of white vinegar to a quart of cold water and soak your new suit for 30 minutes. This will help prevent the colors from bleeding and fading, keeping them brighter longer. Wash and dry as described below.

2. Shower Before Wearing to prevent transfer of substances like dirt, perspiration, oils, lotions, makeup, deodorant, and perfumes that can be absorbed by the fabric and cause lasting damage.

3. Rinse Your Suit Before Swimming to minimize the amount of pool chlorine that the fabric will absorb.

… for additional tips on caring for your favorite swimwear visit www.bratree.com (include all 10 tips on the website)

4. Choose Appropriate Suits for the Right Activities
Hot water and excessive chlorine can accelerate the damage to a bathing suit, so if you are going to sit in a Jacuzzi, you may want to wear an older or less expensive suit, or one that is 100% polyester and/or chlorine resistant.
Lighter colors are more fade resistant than darker colors.
You can find swimwear made specifically for active wear such as water aerobics, water skiing, beach volleyball etc. They are designed specifically with fabrics to help keep your suit in place during vigorous activity. Choose a well-made, more expensive suit to endure your level of activity.

5. Alternate Swimsuits
Swap out suits when and if possible. Most swimsuits contain spandex, a memory fabric, which requires 24hrs for the suit to return to its original shape.
Extend the life of swimwear by minimizing usage

6. Watch Where You Sit
Avoid rough surfaces like concrete and cool decking to prevent tearing and fraying of your suit by laying down a towel. Be careful of wooden surfaces as well as wood splinters can snag the delicate fabric.

7. Rinse and Wash to eliminate chemicals and substances that harm swimwear’s delicate fabric:

Salt water & chlorine
Suntan lotions & oils
Perspiration & oils from your skin
Dirt & sand
And always check the manufacturer’s label for special instructions on the best care for your individual swimwear.

Rinse off immediately after each swim and before sunbathing, as the combination of the sun and chemicals can accelerate the deterioration of the fabric.
Hand wash after wearing. In a sink, add a small amount of mild liquid, not powder, detergent to cold water. Let soak for 15 minutes then gently massage to work out the chemicals and dirt. Rinse thoroughly.
Washing Machines: Washing your suit in a machine is not recommended; however, some manufacturers may suggest you wash your bathing suit after every 5-6 uses to remove dirt, oils, and chlorine buildup. If you choose to wash your swimwear in a machine, place your suit in a mesh laundry bag to help eliminate tearing, stretching and twisting around other articles of clothing. Use mild liquid laundry detergent in cold water on “delicate” or “hand wash” cycle.

8. Drying Swimwear
Never wring a swimsuit out. Instead, lay flat between two dry towels, then roll the towels up, gently pressing the towels to absorb the excess moisture from the swimsuit then allow to air dry the rest of the way on the Bra Tree®.
Avoid drying in direct sunlight as this will fade the fabric.
Do not use heat of any kind to dry your swimsuit as this will destroy the elastic fabric in the suit.
Make sure your swimsuit is completely dry before storing in your wardrobe on the Bra Tree®.

9. Never Dry Clean, Iron or Bleach your swimsuit
Dry cleaning is never good for elastic and spandex fabrics
Bleach will cause discoloration and damage
Dampen with water to eliminate wrinkles; ironing will melt your fabric.

10. Short-term and Long-term Storage
Avoid storing wet or damp suits, as this will cause the suit to mildew and stain. If you must travel a short distance with a wet suit, roll up in a towel to absorb excess moisture and place in a plastic bag with small holes to ventilate. Wash as soon as possible.

Pink Bras and Lingerie

Pink is the color of choice for lingerie. In a recent survey as many as 40% of the respondents picked pink as their favorite color. Through previous research we found that pink is in.  Beauty expert Ms. Patrick, comments, “pink is the color denoting femininity and innocence”. At the same time it is a color with the right amount of brilliance to attract attention. Men love to see women in pink whether it’s a pink bra and panties or full on lingerie. There’s just something about pink that lures men. Simply put, it’s just sexy!  All this was not  surprising to me since from the time we launched our Bra Tree’s, pink has been my best seller and continues to sell out annually.
