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.

I don't buy bras with wires. I hate them!
