There is shockingly little choice in shops where I live and a lot of places don't seem to stock E sized bra's. Where can I get a well supported but flattering one?

I second the wonderbra above! They are amazing, I have three of them (in a 32 DD/E/F).
They aren't wired, they have plastic shaping in them (like hands) which hold you up. Brilliant grin

Bravissimo are aimed at DD+ women, so have a whole range of bras inc. strapless. They do free returns too which is always handy. smile

I am a 34E and got a great one from Boux Avenue

Thanks for the replies will take a look at the wonder bra and bravissimo. Never heard of boux avenue are they online?

I was going to ask the exact same question...I'm a 36E/F. went to M&S today and the fit was shocking. I usually get my bras from bravissimo but wanted to see if Marks were just as good but cheaper..NO!
My boobs are very saggy though - will a wonderbra work?? I despair of ever getting a strapless bra that fits and holds up

The Wonderbra Ultimate strapless is a thing of magic and mystery. It has 'hands' inside the cups which just keep everything in the right place.

I'm in agreement about the wonder bra strapless. It's amazing!!

I need one that fits me - I am a 30g/32FF. Does anyone know how this magic wonderbra thing sizes...or if any options?

The wonderbra goes up to a G cup. The sizing can be a bit off - I think it depends a bit on your breast shape too, but I wear a 30H in cleo, 30HH in most other bras, and actually get on extremely well with a 32G in the wonderbra. It's a teeny bit small in the cup but not enough to be noticeable, and it's amazing. The uplift is great, it gives cleavage and doesn't crush my boobs to my chest like most strapless.

I found Freya deco strapless very good.I bought mine in Debenhams in the sale for a tenner ages ago but I would recommend buying from asos for free delivery and return s. They have a nice dress thing in your size too,not sure about the long line shape bra though (mine is just standard bra shape).

Bravissimo- mine is by Fantasie, though you can get that brand at figleaves and JL too.

I got mine from Debenhams, but I can't remember the brand.

Look on ebay. I got a convertible one that I love and it was cheap as well.

I am an e cup and have a Wonderbra ultimate. It's the woofer's chuffnuts. It's a slightly different fit so takes a bit of getting used to but gives good shape and is pretty comfortable.

I can highly recommend bra stop good brands stock loads of different ones. Also belles lingerie and I recently brought lots from ebay sellers brand new with tags all under £15 bikini too Freya ect cheaper than high street

Well I think I have to atleast go and try the wonderbra now if it is such a thing of beauty!

Got one in Debenhams that was actually surprisingly good, very plain. And I'm a fussy blighter, all other bras are Prima Donna to give an indication of exactly how fussy!!!! It's better than the chantelle one that I have in cream in terms of shape and support but not as pretty. If you have money and time to find one Prima Donna would be a good bet! Wonderbra looked comedy on me.......

Another vote for the Wonderbra strapless. I have it in 2 colours and two of my larger boobed friends also swear by it.

LoadsaBlusher Fri 06-Jun-14 17:42:23

Definetely wonderbra ultimate
Mine is so comfy I wore it travelling on the plane on recent holiday
Im DD and find it supportive and comfy and uplifting
It does sit a bit lower ,kind of on the ribs instead of just under boobs but once used to that you forget you are wearing it

swooosh Fri 06-Jun-14 19:15:59

Wonderbra here too!

janey1234 Fri 06-Jun-14 20:31:56

Yes yes to wonderbra ultimate.... Amazing.

The Wonderbra is fab. But it is not a thing of beauty at all. It just works.

So few things just work as they should these days that when I find one that does, it is a thing of beauty!
