Any suggestions? I'm talking less than £20 for a bra and under £10 for pants. So Victoria's Secret and Agent Provocateur are out. And I'm a 32DD which means brands like H&M and the discounted stuff at TK Maxx are out. I do like a bit of padding in a bra but not so much that it's false advertising and when it comes to pants I don't do thongs or those Brazilian briefs which look like they'd permanently be riding up your arse!

M&S? I love their lingerie blush

Have you tried figleaves outlet or brastop?

Also look on ebay for gossard or freya past season sets for cheap.

Try eBay for brands like panache cleo, pour moi, Freya. There will be loads of BNWT last season stuff in budget

M&S Rosie range is around that price point and feels luxurious compared to their other stuff xx

Try Other Stories.
They have some beautiful stuff.

My DD just recently got some new bras from Pink and says they're the best ones she ever had! She got the Lightly Lined but there are various styles available. (She bought her first two in Westfield and says the assistant there was extremely helpful at fitting her with the right ones).

Just checked the website and sizes go up to 36 DD. They have a deal - 2 bras for £36. She also got pants which are 5 for £25 at the moment.

Same size as you and I''ve found some great stuff in TK MAxx (including a few years back Stella McCartney for about the price you mention)

Boux Avenue have a good selection, not expensive either

AndOtherStories looks gorgeous but seem to only go up to a C cup. sad

Second the lingerie outlet sellers on Ebay, you can get some great bargains.

Some lovely see through lacy knickers and thongs, it's not all plain cotton stuff, bras about £8 too! I have lots that have lasted ages.

Panache have a great outlet site called My Curves and Me. Really cheap.

I've just bought some from Sainsbury's, they're really lovely.

Some of these are above budget but a few within and are gorgeous!

Figleaves have a sale on at the moment so there are loads of nice brands down to somewhere around your price range.

Thanks for the suggestions all. I've found some lovely Heidi Klum bras on eBay but was wondering about sizing. I'm a 32DD but sometimes the band on those can be very snug indeed. I think the Heidi bras used to be Elle MacPherson ones, and back when I was a 34D I had a few but had to buy 36C for the band to not dig into me. Is that still the case with them?

leedy Thu 01-Dec-16 12:35:48

I have a couple of Heidi bras and find them pretty true to size - I'm a 32DD in Cleo, Mimi Holliday, Freya, Scantilly, M&S Rosie and the Heidi 32DDs are grand. Tried a 34 on in the shop once and the band was swimming on me.

Stella McCartney (should you find any eBay bargains) is REALLY tight in the band, though, I have to go for a 34D in those.
