Do you guys know where to buy underwires for bras?

I'd like to be able to repair one of my bras (it's part of a matching set in a color that they just don't make anymore)? I'm not even sure it's worth the effort, but I'd still like to know if such is available for future corset-making.

Here is a supplier online.

Alternatively you could also check your local... or not so local fabric/sewing store.

I think you might be able to get underwires and such from Hancocks for a small job like that. If you're interested in corset making, talking to my friends Aubrey (red_pens) and Kim (matrixx). They can probably tell you every good corset supply place on the internet.

Thank you, to all of you! You've been most helpful.

You should be able to find them at any online or "local" sewing supply store, like a Joann's or Hancock, maybe even Hobby Lobby. The one here in town might have them, but as that business was been up for sale about a year ago I'm not even sure they're still open.

They are still open and still stocked, but I've never looked for/found boning or structural supplies. The owner Ellen (or is it Evelyn, I can never remember) is usually there, although she has been fighting cancer for a while.
