This is a heavy gauge 1/8 inch wide by 1/16 inch thick. These are nylon coated underwires. The colored ends indicate the center front of the bra. These wires are ideal for replacement of broken underwires on bras cup sizes A through F.

These are traditional regular underwires that fit the average of bras. Not all manufacturers use recommended sizes and styles, so please check the measurements against any wires you are replacing. If you are making a custom bra for the first time, I recommend purchasing 3 wires - one that is recommended and once size up and down from the recommended sizes. You can return any unused wires.

Note that we are discontinuing the 2 pair packages, so once they are gone, they will not be restocked.

Give your broken and damaged bra a second life with Porcelynne’s closures, underwires and findings.

I have used many types of underwires in 30 years of bra making, but these regular heavyweight underwires are THE BEST I have tried. I am sold and won't be using any others again. I am a wide root, so these are perfect, hold me well and are just so comfortable I don't even know I am wearing a bra.
