In-built support vests

I'd like some in-built support vests, not ones with the foamy bra thing, as I have small norks, so don't need it / can't fill it, just ones with an elastic shelf grin.

Gap used to sell them, but now only have maternity ones apparently.

I got some in primark a couple years ago, no idea if they still have them tho

Hedwig, I like how the second (red) vest looks (ie very plain), but apparently all 3 vests are lightly padded and underwired. I'm a 36A (ha, I think grin), and need / want neither!

Bran, M+S is a good idea, I'll have a look.

Crispy, Primark also a good idea, I can't get to a store though, and for some reason I think Primark doesn't exist online.

Off to Google...

Arh, well as I'm blessed unfortunately with need for all the scaffolding its the only place I know grin


ItsAllTLAsToMe Fri 26-Apr-13 07:45:56

Do you think I'd need a bra with this?

ItsAllTLAsToMe Fri 26-Apr-13 07:48:58

M+S ones have a lot of 'shaped' secret supports and lace sad.

If its to wear on its own I think you would it being so tight apparently according to most of the reviews, if its to wear underneath another top, maybe not.

ebay ?

Give it a good wash?

ItsAllTLAsToMe Fri 26-Apr-13 07:51:12

Hedwig, yes, it's to wear under other tops. They don't have my size though!

Hedwig06 Fri 26-Apr-13 07:53:56

Typical, the other day I looked everywhere for a nice knee length denim skirt, I eventually found one just right and its out of stock sad

Orbis, you genius! They look fab - just slightly concerned that they say underwired, but then they say elastic banding? Expensive, but I don't care!

ooh sorry this one:


ItsAllTLAsToMe Fri 26-Apr-13 07:57:56

Hedwig, I'd like a couple of white ones, and maybe another colour or two. The Asda one is a definite possibility too. smile

ItsAllTLAsToMe Fri 26-Apr-13 07:59:59

Hedwig, that plain one is also perfect. I'd like it in white though.

Hedwig06 Fri 26-Apr-13 08:05:22

I'm off to get my boys ready for school, I'll have another mooch later. I might get that Moda one myself for £6.

Primark have loads at the moment - black, white, cream, olive green, beige, green and coral.

OrbisNonSufficit Fri 26-Apr-13 20:53:36

ItsAll I haven't bought one recently but the ones I have from a few years ago don't have wires... they're good cotton too, not see through.

I love the Gap vests, you really wouldn't think they're maternity. And the straps are adjustable which some others aren't.
