Oversensitive workplace metal detector: are there any wire-free or metal-free bras with good support?

My wife has to pass through a metal detector at her workplace. Its sensitivity has just been turned up, and her bra underwire and clasps now set it off. There is no alternative screening, and policy explicitly states that if a bra sets off the metal detector, you must go home and change. This is crappy policy, but it's not going away.
She's a petite 32C, and most sports bras she's tried are either constricting or not supportive for workday use, while wire-free comfort bras like the Playtex 18 hour start at 34D. The only thing she's found so far in her size is the Spanx Bra-Llelujah!
: $62 isn't cheap, and the front closure might be enough to set off the detector. Are there any other alternatives?
