Items needed for 10 second or less Bra Fix
The other day I put on my favorite bra. Nope not the one pictured above. But a nude colored one just like that one. I tend to have many of the same style but only wear one or two of them to the point that all of the sudden the underwire starts to poke through. Don’t you hate it when the underwire starts protruding through your favorite bra. That’s my favorite bra pictured above. Yes, the nude one I was talking about. ( I had to switch back and forth because let face it, it’s just not that pretty) Now look closely, or just follow that enormous arrow I put there for ya and there’s that sneaky, painful, annoying piece of underwire. I dealt with the pain for a few days and then I was talking to my husband about it and he said “Just throw it away.” ”What?” I replied. ” Throw away my favorite bra, and then have to go get a new one, with kids? Hmm, let me think about that one.” Uhh.”NO” Then I remembered I had a whole baggy full of moleskin left over from my husband’s many years of road marches in the Infantry. I figured this stuff is really soft and sticky on the back. Maybe at least it will work for one day. I took out a piece and cut of a small section. Next I took off the back piece of paper. Then shoved the under wire back into the hole as far as it would go. Lastly, I covered the section of the bra where the wire was protruding with the moleskin. Using my thumbs I smoothed the moleskin a few times. Here is an up close view of the moleskin on the bra. As I said before I thought this would last the day. But if you are like me you wear you bra several times before you wash it. I wore mine several times which I think helped make the glue stickier. My theory is that my body heat caused the glue to adhere to the fabric even better. When I washed my bra, to my surprise the moleskin was still in place. Update: Unfortunately that was a one time thing all of the other times I’ve tried to wash my bras with moleskin patches they did not last through the wash. (Our new Fix A Bra Moleskin Patch does tend to last through several washes!) Here’s a shot of my purple bra with the moleskin and as you can tell it’s barely noticeable and even less noticeable on the nude bra. But even more importantly, it fixed the bra really quickly, for a long time, comfortably, inexpensively and it’s so easy. I hope that this works for you as well as it has worked for me. Disclaimer: As mentioned below in the comments these bras were both purchased from Victoria Secrets where I have always purchased my bras. In order to avoid mis-representing Victoria Secrets and Limited Brands, I would like to state that this is the first time that I have had a wire poke through and I did not follow the suggested washing instructions. My life is very Chaotic and instead of replacing the bra thus far I came up with the moleskin solution. Thanks!
