The bra is also fitted in such a way that I have full coverage and my breast does not fall out if I’m laying on my side.
I do hand wash it to help it stay in good condition. However I did wash it in the machine on delicate in a zippered pillowcase once and it held up just fine. No damage. I don’t plan to do that with any regularity though.
I do recommend it very highly. I tried a few other styles from little sport organic and ended up giving them away to family due to this one being the most comfortable and hanging the best fit.
I hope this helps; I tried to write about what I was hoping to learn while bra searching.
