There’s nothing more annoying than the feeling you get when the wire in your favorite underwire bra starts to poke through. Oh how irritating! Well here’s a trick to fix a bra that will save you some pain and extend the life of that favorite bra just a little bit longer.
Items needed for Underwire Bra Repair
- Moleskin (don’t worry it’s not made from actual moles)
- Bra with a protruding underwire
The other day I put on my favorite bra. 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 there’s an underwire breakthrough. Ouch! How annoying is it to spend $50 or more on a bra and then have a protruding underwire? The thought of How To Repair An Underwire Bra kept popping in my head every time the wire poked me.
Now look closely, there’s that sneaky, painful, annoying piece of underwire which has broken through the fabric. 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 and guess what.. it’s nude.. it should match perfectly on this bra. Maybe at least it will work for one day. Maybe this is the answer of How To Repair An Underwire Bra.
First, I worked the wire back in to the casing with my fingers. Be careful some of these wires are super sharp. This part can be tricky but you really want to shove it back in there really well.
Look closely, you can no longer see the wire protruding.. that’s a good thing. Now some holes are so big that you may want to dab a little super glue there first, let it dry then add the moleskin.
And there you have it a simple, no sew, underwire bra fix.
