Not Sloggi - not enough support. I used to get them from Triumph but they only do a hideous one now.

Am going through changes... the Change and am hot & bothered & fed up with having to wear polyester. Anyone know of a supplier of cotton bras please?

Am a 34C. Don't want underwired.

Marks and Spencer is your friend. Cheap as chips too.

They're 54% polyester! So not enough cotton I don't think. But thanks anyway.

I remember this catalogue coming through the post to my Mum years ago! Sure enough they have possibly got what you are looking for 80% cotton, no underwire.

95% cotton

Sorry, that one has wires

This Royce one is 84% cotton smile

Dracula Damart??? shock I remember they used to have a shop in Croydon and all their stuff was v. boring and seemd to be aimed at old people (when I was wearing Chelsea Girl). So am I Damart's target market now?!

married Yes it has the cotton but it's a bit... solid! But better than the Triumph ones. So will go on the 'Maybe' list.

Thanks! Any more suggestions anyone?

Bon prix. I have a 95% cotton one, dont have time to look sorry.

I think cotton bras will always be a bit "solid", because cotton/cotton jersey by itself with no lycra or wires is not as supportive as poly mix, lycra or wires.

Thanks all, will look at Bonprix.

Bike I hadn't thought of that. It's the awful styles, though... I liked the old one from Triumph. Shame they discontinued them.

I've found one! At last! It's 100% cotton. Is a German make, from Amazon:
Naturana Women's Soft Cup Everyday Bra 86545,
[[ Only £12 and free delivery]]

H&M has cotton bras. Now I don't know if they last, but they're cheap.

MirandaGoshawk Mon 02-Nov-15 14:32:25

H&M ones are underwired.

But see my last post - I've found the holy grail! They came this morning and are fab - soft and comfy, pretty, 100% cotton so no elastane etc., do the job smile
