It's this one twin pack from Debenhams two for £25 - Gorgeous DD lace underwire D+ t-shirt bra.

It's worth trying a few different sizes on o get the best fit. I bought this colour way and a white / nude combination. Never in my life have I had four comfortable bras at the same time. The are underwired but it was so comfortable that I slept in it.

They are slightly padded but have a soft cup; supportive without massive shoulder and back straps and look pretty. The lace is very soft.

I'm a 32DD and buy bras 2 for £10 from Matalan.

I've had some twin packs from Matalan and M&S. I've found the bigger my cup size, the less comfortable the bra. I had vouchers as Debenhams isn't somewhere I'd usually try. These are the most comfortable and best looking bras I've had for years. It's definitely worth shelling out a bit more.

Interesting. Took DD bra shopping today. She's a 30DD and Debenhams was where we ended up buying. Had expected M&S to be better. Debenhams cheaper than I expected!

I buy those, they are great. Im 38ff

I need new bras (too many Easter eggs), dare I try slightly padded?
Was a 32F, probably more like 34 now.

Smallangryplanet Sat 22-Apr-17 20:23:52

Shesnotme, they really are, glad they are for you too. I had a purple one in a sale ages ago and wore it out, it was my go to bra. I do t work for Debenhams. I have actually have two breasts instead of a proper bum/ big shelf.

shesnotme Sat 22-Apr-17 20:25:58

I keepbuying them... Love them

drspouse Sat 22-Apr-17 20:26:27

Hmm I can't find a padded one in that colour combo. Do you have a link?

Smallangryplanet Sat 22-Apr-17 20:26:59

Don't be put off by the slightly padded. Just thick enough to stop nipples poking through but very soft. I don't like the soft shell cups because i end up with four breasts. They wash great too. Bra Nivarna for the large of breast.

Great rec OP, I have these too, I was a 30f pre pregnancy and they were super comfortable and soft as well as supportive - looking forward to wearing these again

Littleelffriend Sat 22-Apr-17 20:28:47

They fall apart

Smallangryplanet Sat 22-Apr-17 20:28:59

Hope this works:

Smallangryplanet Sat 22-Apr-17 20:30:31

I had one for about two years and wore it every other day. I wore it out going through the washer and dryer.

BuzzKillington Sat 22-Apr-17 20:32:34

They look nice but I hate moulded cups.

MapMyMum Sat 22-Apr-17 20:36:29

Theyre out of stock in all sizes for my country :/

Smallangryplanet Sat 22-Apr-17 20:37:51

I don't like moulded cups either. They aren't formed, they are very thick fabric.

sallywiththegoodhurr Sat 22-Apr-17 20:39:12

I love Debenhams bras.

I am a 36E and bought one of their 'plunge' bras earlier this week. Super comfy and my boobs actually sit in the right place hurrah!

Gymbunny86 Sat 22-Apr-17 20:59:49

I was surprised by how well Asdas bras fit.
I went for a weekend away and forgot a white bra to go under a specific top. Nipped to Asda in the faint hope that they'd have something. I was surprised to find that their entice range goes up to a 42G. 36G was true to size, fitted well and for £8 can't grumble!

Longdistance Sat 22-Apr-17 21:02:54

I have a drawer full of those in various colours blush

Longdistance Sat 22-Apr-17 21:04:06

They aren't mounded cups. Just material in the cups.

drspouse Sat 22-Apr-17 22:41:57

Ah they say non-padded!
I have ordered some on that basis!

QueenRefusenik Sat 22-Apr-17 22:46:14

I have one of these and I wouldn't call it padded if that's putting anyone off. It's pretty comfy and I'm quite happy with it as a replacement for the much-missed BHS range! I'm usually a 34e and wear a 34f in this, so maybe think about going up a cup size

DramaAlpaca Sat 22-Apr-17 22:52:14

I have several of those in different colours. They fit really well, are very comfy and the cups aren't moulded at all.

I'm actually wearing one at the moment so in the interests of research for the thread I've had a feel of the fabric and can report that the cups are made of a double layer of silky fabric.

They are my favourite everyday bras. They also wash well & survive tumble drying.

Smallangryplanet Sat 22-Apr-17 23:00:30

I'll definitely try different types from Debenhams now.

Even though they are the same style, I have different size cups and band width for each of the two sets. I never try stuff on but recommend you do if you can get to a store.
