Hello :) My question is: will a straight ptfe bar stay straight in a vertical labret, or will it curve? And will it being straight cause the piercing to reject/migrate?

I always suggest internally threaded CURVED metal barbells (preferably titanium) for vertical lip piercings as they put significantly less pressure on the area and will drastically reduce the chance of migration.

PTFE (and other plastic materials) are often a ’stouborn’ material and will want to do their own thing. You can curve PTFE and it will stay, however it will often be easier to spin around and could over time can begin to straighten and cause irritation.

Metal materials are always a much safer and more secure option.
