granny bra.. sounds like playtex or just my size ones.

I need the support of the under wire to give me shape and  i have had the wire poky thing. I find its actually due to bad care, and over 3 months old and thats the life of a bra sadly according to Victoria's "little tiny bra" secret.

first you should always hand wash bras in cold water, and drip dry them.

i just sew mine in over and over till i can afford new ones.

Whenever I have the wire poke through, as long as the hole is very near the end of the casing, I have pushed the wire in and done a tiny zigzag just below the hole to seal the casing. This has always worked for me.

Gotta get the professional bra fitting.  Honestly!  I was wearing one size for years.  Went to Nordstrom's with a friend, we both got measured.  Guess what?  I was supposed to wear a smaller band and go up 3 sizes in the cups.  WOW.  Anyway, you don't have to buy Nordstrom-priced bras (although now I do, as they last a really long time) but you have to have the fit right.  "painful" and "undergarment" shouldn't be in the same sentence.
