Scuncii is the best IMO and I do not use anything else.

Also when attaching the elastics I always attach them with the seam of the elastic, opposite of the center wrap. This is so if/when an elastic snaps, the girls can tie their bows in their hair.

They are actually more secure and less likely to fall out if the bow is tied into the hair with elastics however I am not so sure customers would appreciate getting their orders with the elastics already snapped LOL.
I agree the ones from RABOM are HORRIBLE. I also attach my elastic with seams facing out.

You are putting your bows in properly, unfortunately the majority of girls (especially the HS ones here) do not even when you give them written instructions with their bows!

Unfortunately the problem isn't them falling apart it is the bow and elastic staying together and the elastic snapping in half still attached which isn't something we can fix with out bow making skills LOL
