Neither M&S nor Figleaves had anything unfortunately - the colourful cotton always has bows, lace, flowers or something equally annoying, and the plain ones come in utilititarian nude, black or white...
I got some no nonsense plain black sloggi pants (can't bring myself to use the word knickers...) from Figleaves a while ago and bought some Figleaves own brand ones at the same time to try as they were cheaper. The sloggis are still black and have held their shape while the own brand ones are saggy and grey!
Gilly Hicks (available on line or in shopping centres) has navy with red spots, stripes etc. No bows or sticky out decorations. My teenage DD who is size 4 UK fits their XS to give you some idea. I think another teenage girl we know who is an 8 also fits XS. Probably no use if you are over a 12.
I second TU and I recently on the back of the bra fitting thread bought a white and mint spotted bra and pants from ... of all places George. cheap and very very comfy and nice too washes well and love the cotton feel.
