I need something soft & cooler to wear than my usual boulder holsters which are killing me in this heatconfusedbut something that does the job for my 32ff difficult to find in shops size. Preferably without the extra wide straps that is common with bigger cup sizes. Health problems mean I don't get on so well with lace unless its really ultra soft - oh & I hate Bravissimo as the bras I have bought from there where the worst fitting, most uncomfortable, biggest waste of money ever. Does such a nice soft, cool tee shirt type bra exist in this size ??

Help Please ! smile

32H and live abroad. I find that when it is really hot here (talking 40 degrees), either a well-fitting bikini top or a Sloggi soft bra works the best.

Bravissimo sells many brands. What did you buy that didn't fit?

Thank you

I hadn't thought of checking out Sloggi, great idea Jamie smile

I can't remember which brands I got from Bravissimo, though pretty sure the worst of the 2 I bought were own brand. Both were very uncomfortable & cutting under my armpits.

Though as they didn't have the size I asked for in stock, I was coaxed into buying a size that I don't for one minute think was correct, but a friend had raved so much about how happy she was & how her back size was much smaller & cup size much bigger than she had thought she was, so I went along with it & believed the bras would soften with wash & wear - they didn't. If Im honest, have looked again, I think the friend was flattered into buying, as IMHO (& years of trade experience) hers didn't fit well either

These are brilliant. I have been wearing them for years, and the lace trim is very soft. I know your size isn't currently in stock online, but try the other colours. They are great value for two dd+ bras too.

Fantasie Rebecca? Not terribly exciting (I'm the same size as you) but not too "solid" either.

RockinHippy, I had a bad experience with Bravissimo too, I got a fitting there but the band size was too small and too tight to wear all day - I got a refund. I then got fitted at John Lewis and they found the correct size for me. Maybe have another fitting and see how you get on? I get on well with Freya and Fantasie bras.

In the same boat, looking for a 30ff. I have the Debenhams bras linked to below, and they are still uncomfortable.
I think bras with no underwire would work best, just can't find any
