Wacoal Response: So sorry to hear about your experience. Wires poking out are almost always a result of the dryer and wearing too small of a cup.
We would recommend not putting any Wacoal bra’s in the dryer even on air dry. The delicateness of our bra fabrications are not durable enough to withstand the duress of a dryer. Bra’s should be laid flat to dry as much as possible.
You might also want to double check that your size has not changed. Most women fluctuate between 2 sizes each year. The easiest way to tell if your bra fits properly is by checking the wire placement under the arms and at the center chest.
1. The wires under your arms should rest flat ( on bone not tissue) and behind the breast tissue, and the center panel lays flat against your sternum with no tissue spilling out of the cups, then the bra fits.
2. If the wires are poking into breast tissue (either under the arms or pushing the center panel away from the chest), then the cup size needs to increase until the wires clear all tissue.
3. The band should sit low and snug on the body not riding up the back. If you lift your arms above your head, the band should remain in place and no tissue should be seen under the cups.
