We like nothing more than putting on new Activewear - that ultra-fresh feeling of wearing something new that's never been worn before. But, have you ever questioned how fresh your Activewear actually is and whether your first wear is THE first wear? At Lorna Jane we can confidently say you will be the first to wear your Activewear and it's made possible with our ground-breaking First Wear initiative.
The call for untouched Activewear is a growing trend as our communities start to care more about what comes in contact with their bodies; from food, supplements and skincare to now looking at what clothes are made from and how they can affect your skin, you want clear information and options when it comes to your Activewear and we're here to give it to you!
That's why in 2017 we introduced a brand new kind of NEW through our First Wear Initiative to ensure that when you pick your purchase, you're given the option to receive an unworn piece of Activewear.
We know you've got better things to do than laundry! So our garments are engineered to work hard in your workouts, but also be simple to care for too. We're also mindful of the impact that keeping your Activewear 'fresh' can have on the environment. So, our care instructions are as eco-friendly as possible. Check out the individual care labels on each garment for the deets, as they do vary between styles. But here are the basics:
Thermal garments are a little different from your regular Active pieces and because of this they require some extra care when washing.
To keep you warm our thermal garments have a brushed fleece finish that sits against your skin, so like all brushed fleece it can be prone to pilling when rubbing occurs either when wearing or in the wash. We want you to know that pilling is not a fabric defect or fault, but a normal occurrence caused by everyday wear and tear of fleece garments and does not affect the durability or functionality of the fabric.
It is important to us that your thermal pieces last as long and look as good as the rest of your Lorna Jane garments so we have outlined below the best way to take care of them.
Washing Instructions: Use cold water to hand-wash with mild detergent or select delicate settings on your washing machine. Turn your garments inside out and always use a wash bag.
Laundry to Dry: Please machine spin on gentle and then hang dry or dry flat in the shade.
Limit Friction: Please try to avoid friction on your thermal pieces e.g. wearing backpacks, sliding on the floor, crawling on your knees, sitting on rough surfaces, or rubbing stains - as these can cause pilling.
Laundry Detergent & Softeners: Choose a milk laundry detergent for brushed fabrics to retain the softness of the yarn and reduce peeling caused by friction.
If Pilling Occurs: Use a good quality fabric shaver on the surface of the fabric to remove any pilling.
Wash bags prolong the life of your Activewear. They prevent any stray fibres from "fluffy" items in the rest of your wash attaching themselves to your technical fabrics and they stop your bra straps and clasps getting tangled with other items in the wash. They also reduce stray fibres from shedding and making their way into our precious waterways.
When it comes to Sports Bras we know that every woman is different - and that one size, shape or level of support does not fit all.
80% of women are wearing the wrong Sports Bra
Your breasts can bounce up to 18cms without the right support
Wearing the wrong bra can negatively impact your posture and cause back pain
Underwires can cause irreparable damage to your precious breast tissue
