I usually wear M and S bras, always white and black, two pairs of each, don't change them every day.

I've been hearing about Primark bras being good. I usually don't buy much from there because I think it's generally poor quality but yesterday I bought some bras when I was in there with my friend who buys everything from there. I decided to get some different colours aswell as black and white. So far so good but I've yet to wash them and see how they turn out.

Does anyone here wear Primark bras, do you have different colours and how many do you have?

I think it depends on your size and shape. I can't get on with Primark or M&S bras, they always jab me under the arm. So far the only brand that reliably fit me comfortably are Curvy Kate. Which is a shame because those babies are not cheap.

No M&S bra fits me. I have tried many. Primark not great either. Also now stuck with the more expensive brands to avoid being attacked by my own underwires/looking like I have extra breasts in my armpits.

I've got a LOT of bras - maybe 40! Bravissimo, Freya, Panache, M&S, Asda, Primark, Curvy Kate, Pour Moi - many many brands.

I don't get on with Sainsbury ones, their sizing is completely off for me, way too small. The Asda ones are great, the Freya are my favourites, but they can be expensive. M&S has totally lost their mojo as far as I am concerned.

I've got all colours, all styles, but that's because I match my underwear to my clothes pretty much every day...

Lots, in every colour of the rainbow and more. I don't think I have any white ones though, and just one or 2 in black.
Mostly Freya and Fauve. I have a couple of Curvy Kate's, but generally find their bands a little too stretchy. Every now and then I buy some Panache bras, as they're so pretty, but after wearing them for a few hours, remember why I don't buy them. (nothing wrong with those bras, just wrong wire shape for me).

Right now, I've only recently gone back to normal bras from BF ones and currently they are all M&S, and all the exact same type - a smooth underwired tshirt bra. In black, white, black with pink flowers, and bright pink. Whenever I've tried to get more fancy I've just not worn them. I'm very boring when it comes to underwear though. My knickers are all identical side seam free black hi legs from M&S too, for the past 15 years I've been only wearing this style. dull!

I have loads of bras in different styles for every occasion, and in lots of colours. I love brightly coloured bras, but always wear nude ones under white clothes so they don't show.

I like bras that fit really well & they have to be comfortable. Primark bras don't come in my size, and I've never found an M&S bra that fits me properly.

I usually buy Debenhams or Fantasie for plain, everyday bras and I also have a selection of pretty Freya & Bravissimo ones.

I always used to wear nude colour but I did try a couple of Primark ones and though it took me a few tries to get my size , and I need to make sure the straps are wide enough, they are fine.
I don't expect them to last that long.
I wash them in a padded lingerie bag in the machine.

I don't like Primark knickers though.

I had Matalan (stretched like billy-o) and Tesco (ok, lovely dark grey) Sainsburys (might as well have worn nothing) and M&S (ok , but a bit staid)

Once they get saggy, the wires poke or they wear , I'll replace them.
At the moment, I have nude, dark nude, black/pink. Wear once then wash them.
No white.

I used to have amazing undies until I put on lots of weight. I have now lost 2 stone another 1 - maybe 1.5 to go and have already started buying great items again.

Love victoria secrets pants and primark bra's. Got loads of colours the brighter the better. H&M used to do lovely bra's I haven't been there again yet so will pop there when I am at target weight.

I think I bought about 8 from primark last week from hot pink to leopard, but only 1 black and 1 white.

Yeah, never wear white bras either. Have a few in nude for not showing through clothes, couple in black, the rest are JAUNTY COLOURS. Today's is a Freya one in Watermelon, which is a sort of bright coral red. Also have bright pink, fuchsia, bright orange, turquoise, and pink with brown polka dots.

My pants all tend towards the boring M&S black bikini, though.

I had quite a lot but now I'm 10 weeks pregnant I have changed size and currently only have 2 that fit! Had lots of colours and brands - never found an M&S one that fit and currently a 32E and still growing so now shopping in bravissimo and sites like figleaves/debenhams. Not owned a white one since I was at school and don't wear plain t-shirt bras - I like to wear something fun or pretty even on the weekend in jeans as it makes me feel good. Always buy 2 or 3 matching knickers/thongs with each bra as well. I love having a mixture of young and fun and lacy/pretty ones.

I only have white, black, nude and a nude-cream combo.

M&S and J Lewis do it for me. I always try on about 6 in each style to get the right fit because every bra is different. I'm anywhere between a 30DD and 32D depending on the style and brand.

I don't like coloured bras because I like bras and knickers to match and don't wear synthetic knickers. That limits it to 95% cotton so it's white or black.
