It really depends upon your budget, but perhaps something like this www.marksandspencer.com/Limited-Collection-Flirt-Lace-Non-Padded/dp/B0042B8F9G?ie=UTF8&ref=sr_1_10&nodeId=1977854031&sr=1-10&qid=1390854144&pf_rd_r=1Q962KEBYFFMYVYGNEPN&pf_rd_m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&pf_rd_t=301&pf_rd_i=0&pf_rd_p=321381407&pf_rd_s=center-3 with matching knickers, maybe some hold-ups or stockings and a decent (ie. one with metal suspender clips) suspender belt.

I always feel more comfortable in slightly sexy underwear which is suitable for everyday wear. That way I don't feel awkward or try-hard, and I can enjoy feeling sexy outside of the bedroom too smile

How about silky or satiny bra and knicker sets?

Depending on budget, boux avenue do some lovely stuff. They will help with fitting too...

Primark do some nice cheap end sets that wash well

Good luck & enjoy wink

I'm not sure what size you are but for example you could try a Fauve bra and knicker set, or perhaps the Bravissimo Satine set (which has a basque option) or alternatively something like a black Masquerade Hestia bra which you could match with various black silky knickers. I haven't tried the bras but there are a lot of reasonably priced knickers also in Boux Avenue.

Careful of Boux Avenue fitting service - they are known to be quite ropey and a lot of the branches still do +4 method

First off, make sure the fit is right - go to Bravissimo or follow the guide here

Nice sets/brands - Cleo by Panache, Masquerade (also panache), Curvy Kate makes some lovely things (the carmen longline set is beautiful), Bravissimo own brand, Fauve (look on leia or brastop for good deals on this) , and Ewa Michalak ( a polish brand) do some absolutely fantastic sets which look great on.

M&S have beautiful silk camis and knickers at the moment. I really, really want them but they are expensive. so gorgeous though

What about a babydoll like the ritzy or marcie

Statistically, I haven't tried the Boux Avenue bras yet although I notice that they are doing some larger cup sizes so thought I maybe could try some on. I did think their knickers were good though and they worked well with the Masquerade Hestia.

If I tried their bras I wouldn't let them measure me. Have you tried their bras for 'quality'?

I haven't although from what I've heard and read they are just. Kind of la senza five years back before they went neon. You can probably get known brands like panache for similar prices on amazon etc tbh

Thanks Statistically I won't bother then. Will stick with the better brands and try EM also once I can face figuring out their sizing and website.

I visited the Birmingham (Bull Ring) branch of Boux Avenue before Christmas. They had nothing below a 32" with a cup bigger than a DD. Also, practically everything was moulded. The bras were like hard plastic spheres cut in half!
