Not always, I have several bodices made with these
that are 6+ years old that have never pulled out. I
do make sure to use fray-check on my holes before
inserting the grommets (with pliers). I'm a 36c, but
I have used these for my friend the 38EE and her
bodice is going on 4+ years.
I always make sure to use the double-sided ones, and
with the pliers i make sure they 'click' into place
(it does make a click of pop noise). then i squeeze
hard to set them. the only problem i do run into is
since the metal splits on the back side it chews thru
my lacings. so i just use rounded shoe-laces and
throw them away after awhile.
