Can you fix a broken wire 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 does the wire break in my bra?

– Underwires are designed to splay when the bra is worn. This helps the bra to actually grab your breasts and give them support. If your bra band is too tight, you are pulling the underwires apart farther than they are designed to be pulled. This stress will eventually cause the wires to break.

How do you replace an underwire bra?

To do this, you’ll probably want to cut a small slit in one end of the underwire casing on the bra. You need to be able to slide the new underwire entirely into the casing so that no part of it is exposed. Slide the new wire in carefully, as you don’t want to break it by forcing it into the casing.

How do you remove a broken underwire from a cup?

Search for the underwire poking through the end of the cup. Pull the underwire out with your fingers or use needle-nosed pliers to remove a stubborn support. If you cannot see the wire poking out but feel the break with your fingers, make a small cut or slit at the end nearest the break using a razor tip or sharp scissors.

What to do if you have a hole in your bra?

Push the wire all the way back in so that all you see is a hole. Try to cover the end of the wire up with a bit of fabric from the bra by moving it around until it’s in a good place. Put the fabric strip on. Remove the paper backing from the other side of the adhesive. Place the strip sticky-side down over the hole.

What to do with an old bra wire?

The old bra (the one from which I scavenged the good wire) is still useful. I removed the broken wire, and now it can be worn around the house. When I find that I no longer need it at all, I will scavenge additional parts, such as hooks and eyes. The eyes can be added to a stretched-out bra band, on the closure, to “shorten” a too-long band.
