It really pisses me off when I see nice bras or bikinis in my size and they've got a massive fuck off wedge of foam in them

I'm a 32J....
Don't bother with m&s - go straight to bravissimo. They have some lovely bikinis and swimsuits.

I want mine pushed up. They are far to, um, south for my liking.

But I will never wear a bikini again. But a bra... yeah, I'll have a push up thanks!

Yabu to confuse push up with padded.

Yanbu to be frustrated there is so much padding in larger sized bikinis.

Push up is about shape and lift and looking perkier. People of all sizes want that, and no matter how big you are a lifted bosom is better than a saggy one.

Padding is about looking bigger, often larger cupped people would rather not look bigger.

And Yabu to be looking for sedentary supportive swimwear in big sizes in m&s! grin try panache, Fantasie, cleo, mis Mandalay...

Decent, not sedentary!!

I bloody hate underwired bras. Why are there so few without bloody bits of metal in them.
My neighbour had a nasty accident with an underwire bra.

I've got big tits (I hate them, tbh) and M&S drive me wild with their awful, awful bras and swimwear. I would pay good money for half an hour in a locked room with their designers. Why oh why oh why oh why FFS !
I swear they didn't used to be this bad.

(I wear Freya btw.)

Yup, M&S are just utterly shit when it comes to anything bra-related. I'd be tempted by an online order - unless Debenhams in Dublin have any? The ones here tend to stock Freya bikinis IIRC. If not, Brastop often have free worldwide delivery.

Maryz I'm in France and buy online. Only downside is you have to pay for return postage for stuff you don't want. Failing that have you got an independent lingerie shop near you? Also usually very helpful if pricey.

YANBU. But, just to add, I'm a 36 A and the range for less endowed ladies is just as shite. I think they just make ugly, unflattering bikinis!

Bravissimo do mail order and they are pretty good about returns - I have returned / exchanged things several times. You just print a free returns label off the internet.

It is worth a trip to a store to be fitted in the first place though.

LimeLeaffLizard Tue 21-May-13 22:01:10

oh sorry x post I didn't realise you had to pay for postage from other countries. Makes sense I suppose.

Thanks to Bravissimo I have not had a back pain in over 5 weeks, I am a 36f so good bras are few and far between.

I used to be a 46G Went down to a 34F after losing ten stone.
Am currently a 38 K (though i was measured two months ago and bra is loosening because im trying to lose weight) I dont get this either. Ive never bought a padded bra. Or a push up one. It would drive me nuts. I need a fucking engineering degree to put a bra on as it is.

Larval, I hope you don't think I am rude asking this but, are you sure you are a 36A? I don't know if you have seen any of the bra intervention threads but most women who have thought they are (and previously been fitted at!) a 36A actually aren't. If you've been fitted at most big retailers or followed pretty much any online size chart there is a fair chance it's wrong.

I've nearly cancelled my holiday because I couldn't get bikinis (I'm a 36GG) I went to Boux Avenue. Two bikinis in pretty prints for 80 quid-appreciate that's not cheap but it's cheaper than 35-45 for just the top in bravissimo!
