I just don't wear the underwire-less bras on days I go to the gym, though.
LOL! I thought I was the only one to do this.

I've tried finding replacement underwires, checked all the fabric stores, and couldn't find them anywhere.

look for 'boning' it is what they use to make corset stays and such. It is usually plastic and sold in a fabric covering. Look in the bridal area at the fabric store.

For me once my underwire breaks the bra is done. If that underwire is broken don't wear it at all beleive me it is very painful when you get pinched by it...

Glad you found a website for replacement. VS bras are expensive, but I have found hand-washing them, allowing them to soak overnight for added cleanliness and then air drying works best to keep the elasticity strong and the under wire in it's place!!

Good luck!

I am going to guess after almost 5 years, she has already done something about the bras.
