Your favourite bra brand

I have just bought one quite cheap bra from Debenhams (£4 in sale) and one very expensive Calvin Klein bra from House of Fraser (£29 in sale) They are both kind of the same style and size- of the shaped formed cup variety. Now the cheaper one is really comfy after just a couple of wears and the Calvin Klein one not so comfy.

What are your favourite brands?

Freya, Fantasie and the Girgeous range at Debenhams

My local TK Maxx never has anything smaller than a 32 band or bigger than a DD cup.

I must be the same shape as *LittleTulip" grin - like exactly the same brands, plus Bravissimo.

After extensive fitting sessions at both John Lewis and Bravissimo, the Panache Porcelain appears to be the only bra that fits.

Lurking. I need a few new names to explore. I'm too big for high street stores and have been disappointed by three bravissimo bras falling apart within of couple of months

I love Empreinte. They are expensive but last for ever so totally worth it as the fit is great for me. The Melody is the best every day bra ever.

PacificDogwood Sun 03-Nov-13 08:42:02

Is Empreinte not a R+P brand? Or am I getting confused confused? It happens quite easily these days...

I looked at an Empreinte bra online on the R+P website and was wondering whether it would be worth a visit to London for grin

Sorry should have said I am a 32FF in Fantasie but take a 32E in Empreinte.

Triumph all the way for me. The old Amourette 300 could have been purpose built for me - scrapes my sad, old, long, thin flappies into a seriously impressive frontage.

I'm sure if I were able to visit R&P I'd be immediately converted, but I'm not in the UK.

Freya or for every day Prima donna (their Deauville bra), it's expensive but I can run around after the DC's in it which isn't bad considering I'm a good F cup atm.

Empreinte would definitely be worth a trip to London for, although I have 2 boutique shops really local that sell them so you might find the same near you pacific.

My best so far is next! Very surprised

Primadonna , H cup and they make me look slimmer and my boobs smaller and so bloody comfortable ..worth every penny imo if fitted properly .

Empriente are lovely but very pricey.

Cleo are very good for those of you who like a forward type shape

Rubybrazilianwax Sun 03-Nov-13 11:20:23

Lejaby are super quality and last for years
