This blog post is going to be about how the fit of a bra changes when you remove the wires.
I will be using my Impimi Nicole bra, and the original review for that can be found here.
I chose this bra specifically because the wires are extremely painful for me. Literally when I put the bra on this morning the gore was stabbing me. I love the color of this bra, but it’s virtually unwearable with the wires.
What I did first was get the sharpest scissors I have and gently go back and forth with one end of the blade, against the wire channel above where the wire is.
The wire didn’t slip out easily, so I had to use a little force.
As you can see, the wires are definitely in a plunge shape.
Once I took the wires out, the cup immediately widened.
When putting the bra on after removing the wires I immediately felt a difference. For one, it was more comfortable, there was nothing stabbing me. With the wire removed there was nothing holding the cup into place, so on my bigger side the cup kind of collapsed. This bothered me very much. I found myself constantly touching my chest. It felt weird.
Here are some comparison pics
This bra felt somewhat like a padded bralette. I’m not sure if I mentioned this, but I hate bralettes.
I don’t know what I’m going to do with this bra. I can’t wear it with the wires, and I don’t like it without the wires.
