Sold by the Pair (s) and Single Piece

On Occasion, I've Noticed you might need to either replace one side
or believe or NOT,
some have even used these underwires for other projects having NOTHING to do with bras.



Features :
The use of the Finest Flat Wire gauge steel of 0.080" x .024" for a more Sturdy Construction.
A soft cushion tip that eliminates poke through. This smaller cushion tip also allows less channeling and therefore a lighter bra.

Hint: If you can't get your exact length underwires, get a longer size,
cut them off at the tips and cover the ends with epoxy glue or E6000 or glue gun,
or some type of glue that will adhere in a non sharp edge, got ideas?, let me know.
This will keep them from poking through the fabric.


(((UPDATE : from a buyer)))

((( Dear wildnsweet, Hello, I accidentally ordered the wrong size.
So I followed your directions to make them smaller. The problem is that the epoxy creates a finish that won't slide through the casing,
so now I can't get them in. Any suggestions? Thank You -L____2
My response:
Humm, guess I was misunderstood or wrote it wrong, the glue is always a last resort in any feature in sewing,
unless making things completely by Hand, sorry the expert in me forgets not everyone has either
had my experience or understanding of becoming one with sewing, hard to explain.
Anyway try baby powder, a great handy sewing tool. Helps things slide in. Or Sand the edge with an emery board,
then slide or can you take epoxy off, then get in, then place epoxy back on?
BTW are you using bra channeling or fixing an existing bra? Thanks Sylvie
Sooooooooooo Please be careful HOW and WHEN using Glues when Sewing
Best to Slide then if NEED, if WANT glue edge in, for, unless sewing by hand, MACHINES do NOT like GLUES )))


***FYI: Another WONDERFUL Etsy buyer***
(Personally have never tried this)
Dear wildnsweet, Your wires worked perfectly! In the past I've had wires the wrong length, and here's another option for shortening them: trim them and coat the ends in Plasti-Dip.
Comes in different colors and is available at hardware stores or online. Just make sure you clean the wires thoroughly with rubbing alcohol first and let dry or your finished tips can pop off.
It takes about 3-4 coats to get a nice rounded end.

The following size chart features manufacturers suggested sizes.

Underwire sizes vary according to the garment they are designed to be used in.
It is best to measure the length of the wire needed rather than go by the
suggested sizes for the Underwires.

These Flat underwires have a colored tip on one end. This colored tip goes to
the center of the bra and the white tip goes to the outside.

The following size chart features both manufacturers suggested sizes.
