Default Interesting Fix Seen on Pinterest

The article showed how to fix the bra underwire that pokes through and digs. She showed to push the wire back into position and place a piece of moleskin over the opening. The piece of moleskin appeared to be 3/4" x 1/2". She related that the moleskin will seal tightly owing to body heat and holds up through washings.

I wonder how many bras I have discarded owing to the poking underwire. More than I can count.

Interesting. I use moleskin as a guide for my 1/4" seams. Now there's another use for it here!

Thank you for sharing. I also use it to mark my 1/4" guide on the sewing machine.

I usually just push the wire back into place and then sew over it the close the hole.
