I am looking for new bras after stopping breastfeeding a few months ago that now I am a different size.

Where do you get your bras from? I am looking for something simple but pretty. Something similar to these which I got from the US before. May be nude or black with a little bit of lace.

Many thanks ladies xx

Figleaves or brastop. Also Debenhams when they have discounts or Sales.
Hope you have measured yourself in line with the mumsnet good bra guide smile as you have probably changed size due to breastfeeding.

Thanks all :-)

I am hoping to go somewhere which does fittings as well. blodynmawr - I will look at the guide and measure myself, hopefully can save myself some money buying form amazon, sainsburys etc.

I have a size which is not easy to find, and swear my Marie Jo bras - their avero range is simple and comfortable. Rigby and peller stock them and they will measure you. You can also find them on Amazon once you know your size.

Thanks poster Mominatrix, there is a Rigby and Peller near my work, I may give it a try.

Bravissimo. Best fitting advice ever and good ranges.

MotherofFlagons Wed 06-Jan-16 21:33:50

Rigby & Peller definitely. I bought most of my bras there and they were always a perfect fit. I bought three from M&S last year because money and I really regret it, bad fit, straps constantly slipping down, just awful quality and that was with the advice of a fitter.

DramaAlpaca Wed 06-Jan-16 21:35:12

Debenhams, Bravissimo or Figleaves.

KatharinaRosalie Wed 06-Jan-16 21:36:47

mother if that was M&S fitter who advised you then no wonder, they probably sold you way too big back size - slipping straps are a clear sign

I now only wear these exact bras, so comfy and pretty cheap. I have this brown one on now!

Bravissimo for a fitting about once a year.

And then the same ones in different colours on eBay / brastip.

I love Bravissimo!

madmotherof2 Wed 06-Jan-16 22:00:03

Debenhams and Asda!

Doobigetta Wed 06-Jan-16 22:04:11

I like these
Very comfortable, and give a great shape with no ridges.

abetterhairbrushisneeded Wed 06-Jan-16 22:04:18

M&s have that bra. I buy the one that looks the same but without the padding. I have been buying them for years now. I find they last about 2 years of weekly wear and wan before they start to lose shape. V comfortable and often in a sale.

ShatnersBassoon Wed 06-Jan-16 22:09:18

Sainsburys for me too.

FlatOnTheHill Wed 06-Jan-16 23:18:08

I buy all my bras in M&S and they are lovely. Fit perfectly.
In saying that M&S seem to have a terrible reputation on MN.
Bad fitters by the sound of it...the Bras are nice though.
