Good fitting bra?

So I keep reading about how amazing a good fitted bra can be with style, but nobody mentions where they go to get one!

I've read lots of "not m&s" comments & am too far away from a Rigby & Peller, so where should I go?

FYI, based in the SW.

Bravissimo, if there's one close.

Or a local independent shop, I know of one in my town, one close to my parents and one near my sister, but none of us live in the SW so that won't help you sorry.

Be prepared though, the good bras cost a bomb! I used my Christmas money to go bra shopping in the sales and 3 bras still cost the best part of £100!!! In the sale!!!

Or find one of the bra intervention threads, find out how to measure yourself, post your measurements on here and someone will give you advice, relevant to your shape.

Order a few different styles from somewhere like, which does free exchanges so you can keep going until you find one you like. Once you've found a style you like, it's worth searching on eBay, or similar, as you'll often pick up old season stock at really good prices

I'm a 32E and recently got a great bra from John Lewis. It was about £20.
