Strapless Bras

I tried this on yesterday. It did provide amazing support but was hideously uncomfortable, I can't imagine wearing it for more than 10 minutes without crying. Are there any strapless bras out there that support and feel comfortable?

I was going to get one of these:

Marks and Spencers can be a bit pricey so if you looking for something cheaper which I currently got a strapless bra from was undercover glamour.

I think it work with anything you wear

I'd suggest La Senza- they have a few styles and i almost bought one but it was out of stock in my size.

Thanks I will look at those! Will also have a look at good housekeeping too.

Have good housekeeping mag here. Winner wonderbra multi plunge. For sizes above a DD recommends panache porcelain strapless

Thanks brighthair, I'm actually a D cup, so I might try out both!

I'm surprised you found the Wonderbra uncomfortable, I love mine and I'm a 32DD. Are you sure it was the right size?

I'm a 32D, the one I tried seemed very tight around my rib cage, the band just seemed too wide and rigid. The support was great though, the same as a bra with straps really, but it felt a bit vice like!

seymore I tried on one of the Wonderbra Ultimates and it came up very tight around the rib cage. So I've ordered it one rib cage size up (i.e a 32 rather than a 30) and it seems to fit perfectly. I haven't used it 'in anger' yet, but it does seem to give a really nice shape. I suspect the sizing of these is a bit small so wonder if it's worth trying a size up?
