Can you fix a broken underwire in a bra?
Theoretically, yes, you could take the damaged underwire out of your bra and put a new one in. However, underwires come in so many lengths, shapes, and sizes that you’ll have a hard time finding a perfect match at your local haberdashery. Some brands even manufacture their own underwires.
Why do my bra wires keep popping out?
What makes it happen? Sure, sometimes underwire pokes through or snaps because the bra is of poor quality. But underwire health is also impacted by less-than-ideal bra washing practices, the age of the bra, how you put on your bra, and even changes in your body.
How do you know if an underwire is too big?
If the back rides up or the breast tissue falls under the wire in the front throughout the day, it is too loose. To check if your band is too loose, lift your arms above your head. If the band moves up your sides or back, or if your breast tissue starts to come out from below the underwires or band, it’s too big.
