I'm wearing my old 36B soft padded underwired bras (m&s t-shirt style) but losing weight means they are now totally the wrong size. What was once a fairly perky pair are now deflated little balloons in dire need of some support.

A recent trip to m&s has left me totally baffled (I know, I know smile) as they measured me as a 34A but couldn't find any that didn't gape at the top or slide up if I lift my arms up!.

Can someone guide me through self-measuring and give me an idea what sort of style would be best for support & to reintroduce some fullness. Definitely want underwired & some sort of padding (for volume but mainly nipple coverage smile)


Measure as described above. By the sounds of it they were miles off!

Thank you very much. Just measured using that method at 32 under ribs & 34 across bust so reckoning on a 32B. Now just need to find a shape that works for me smile

That would seem a sensible start point

For small not very full boobs (I.e. Mine pre-pregnancy) a slightly padded plunge bra is very supportive and gives a flattering shape - M&S always have a good selection of these and Debenhams have quite a few too.

Thank you - I'm now he proud owner of 3 rather lovely Esprit padded plunge bras in a 32C shockshock
