I have just snapped the underwire in my most favourite, most comfortable and most loved bra. I did this while hitching the said bra around to make it more comfortable while lying down and reading MN.

AIBU to demand compensation from MN? grin

Well, I am quite upset.

that sounds quite painful actually!

Due to the deep distress caused by the snappage of my oldest and quite manky favourite bra, I breaks down in tears and cannot go on would like compensation for the deep emotional distress I have suffered.

Not quite good enough but will work on it grin

It did give me quite a jab. Are you listening Justine?

Do you feel it is the fault of the new layout, which may have distracted you?

How do you know her undergarments have a new layout then?

Mandy2003 Mon 01-Aug-11 22:25:46

Perhaps you could submit the invoice for having it welded!

ElectricSoftParade Mon 01-Aug-11 22:25:58

I really am most distressed here and possibly spending too much time on here while lounging about but it was so comfortable and my old reliable. <in mourning>

My undergarments do have a new layout now <weeps>

ElectricSoftParade Mon 01-Aug-11 22:27:05

Welding certainly not needed but it was just my favourite.

AuntieMonica Mon 01-Aug-11 22:28:03

perhaps we could ask MNHQ to recommend suitable lounging attire in the next 'Mumsnet swears by' email?

Burn it and pretend you gave it up for The Struggle.....

After a restless night of tossing and turning I am facing the day with a slightly wavery smile on my face. I will find a comfortable new one today, I will! <very brave>

Why don't you channel it into the positive energy of getting MN to launch a campaign for manufacturers to make underwear where the wire stays IN and doesn't try to stab you through the chest by lunchtime or play peekaboo out of your V neck in front of your boss?

Good luck with your quest im still struggling to replace my bestest bra that died of a similar fate ......i have actually contemplated trying to put a wire in it from another less loved bra ....has anyone tried this with any success?.

springydaffs Tue 02-Aug-11 13:16:50

duh, you can buy a new set of underwires in fabric shops/haberdashery depts. No need to grieve, grief not required.

ElectricSoftParade Tue 02-Aug-11 14:10:51

Can you? I am very happy to hear that although not so happy about rummaging around the big bin to find the bra again!

nickschick Tue 02-Aug-11 16:59:41

hops a special hoppy dance now to find a haberdashery dept ........

Is it possible to snap an underwire? I feel my huge bosoms may not be quite as huge as i had previously thought if they are not capable of breaking underwire. That is a feat. Be proud.
