I have been wearing Vanity Fair Underwire bras for the past decade. I replace them regularly and was them very gently and NEVER dry them in the dryer.
But the underwires are breaking with just normal wear. I have 5 that have broken in the last 5 weeks and two within the last 24 hours. What is going on? My daughter wears bras from Target,the Gilligan Omally brand & her underwires poke through the cleavage area occassionally, she drys them in the dryer and they last forever.
What I have noticed is the ones she wears, when I'm sewing them back in, the underwire is metal and the ones from Vanity fair are plastic - she pays less than half the cost for hers and I buy the expensive ones and they break!! I think Vanity Fair is going the cheap route with the plastic underwires.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
Monetary Loss: $150.
Preferred solution: Full refund.
