Used to fit

I changed the underwires of my 30E - Freya » Starlet Vertical Seam Bra (1061) for longer and more flexible ones. Turns out, my instinct was right! The new wires turned Starlet from a torture device into a very comfy bra that fits perfectly.

Old underwires: width 12,3 cm / length 22,8 cm / sturdy
New underwires: width 13,5cm / length 23,8 cm / flexible

How this affects the fit of the bra:
- The cups became wider and slightly more shallow.
- The new wires stretch with the band, so the band is a few cm longer now. Since the band doesn't have a lot of stretch to it, it fits more comfily this way.
- The underwires don't poke at all - neither under my arms nor at the center gore. I'm happy.
- There was fabric sticking out under the arms because the old ones were too short. This is now fixed.

I wish Freya would use more flexible underwires in the smaller cup sizes by default, as those sturdy ones often feel restricting and uncomfortable on people with small boobs or bony ribcages.

  • Where did you get the new wires?

  • Vadaslava I got them at an onlineshop in my country that's selling sewing and dessous making supplies :)

  • Vadaslava It's always a good idea to check out local sewing supply shops and department stores first! But in the case of the Starlet, the wires they sold there would not fit, so I went for an online shop with a larger variety in wire shapes and sizes.

  • Wait, that's a thing?! How did I not think of this? Thank you! I'm definitely going to look into this!

    Very nice! Since it's coming out in a black colorway, I may pick one up again at some point. I'll definitely keep this in mind if the wires are still stiff and pokey.
