Having a clear out and found a few bras that don't fit very well or just not wearing.
I have searched online and there are various charities that accept them but you have to pay to post to them.
Does oxfam still take or anyone know of anywhere else?
M&S used to do a £5 promotion but want to get rid of now.

If you're near a Bravissimo they were taking them the last time I was in.

We have a bra bank near us.

Thanks- I checked out the bra bank but there isn't one that I recognise nr me. Will look again.

There are several bra banks in Swindon, if that helps.

There's a charity that collects and sends out to Africa I think, can't remember the name!

John Lewis stores collect them too so might be worth trying there is you have one close to you.

Your local Women's Institute might be taking them too.

Oxfam take them and if they can't sell them they give them to women in developing countries. Was on radio 4.

All my local charity shops LOVE bras

You can post 'gently worn' and new bras to these people:
