When Should I Replace a Sports Bra?
Answer: Anywhere from three months to a year, depending on how often you wear it and how well you take care of it. The more you wash and wear your bra, the more you'll tax its elasticity, explains Liz Neporent, coauthor of The Fat-Free Truth: Real Answers to the Fitness and Weight-Loss Questions You Wonder About Most (Houghton Mifflin, 2005). Though you should toss any bra that is totally spent, you can double up two weaker ones in a pinch, says Neporent.
