I'm looking for cotton bras please?

I've moved south and am struggling to cope in the heat in my usual mainly polyester bras which are causing spots - hoping I'll adjust but need a temporary solution!

Having been done by Bravissimo and checked using the method on here I'm definitely a 32g/34ff (other sizes are in my drawer depending on cut but these are my usual sizes).

Boobs are bottom heavy and splay out to the sides at the bottom, not totally empty at the top, but I have a narrow gore. I find that balconette (Fantastie Smoothing) or gentle plunge (Bravissimo Satine) seem to be the best styles for me.

Any suggestions?

Heidi Klum Intimates has very nice balconette bras, some are cotton and I find their cut really flattering. They are usually 50% off around this time of year - I got a really beautiful cotton one last week ar John Lewis, it was £18 on sale.

Fantasie "speciality bra" (I don't know why it's called that!) has a cotton lining so might work?

OP you seem similar size and shape to me (28FF) and would LOVE a cotton bra too.

no quick answers but or is excellent at finding nice bras and you can email them with queries they are usually very helpful.

maybe a trawl through Figleaves?

I'm struggling with bras at the moment.

I'm going to bravissimmo to get measured next month.

However I picked up a very comfortable f and f cotton lined bra in tesco this week In white £7 . It will do till iget measured.

There are very few cotton bras out there especially in d+. A lot of ewa michalak (the s/chp/pl) cuts are cotton lined, and debenhams has a range which has some partially cotton one.

Yep. I couldn't see any in Bravissimo when I was in - other than in full cup. M&S did have some, but nothing in remotely my size (yes, they don't fit you properly, but I know how a bra fits now so could play with them a bit).

Thankfully the house is unpacked now, so the hard work is done - I'll keep looking though!
