Where do you buy your underwear?

Just that really... I've only ever bought bras and underwear in Primark blush Most of it doesn't survive the first wash, especially bras. So... where can I buy good underwear that will last?

Sainsbury's and M&S.

I agree about Primark. It's a false economy.

BeauMirchoff Sun 22-Oct-17 10:32:05

Thank you! It all looks fairly nice when on hangers but after the first wash it's out of shape and becomes very uncomfortable blushhmm

M and S

Buy cheap, buy twice (or more often in this case)

DD has loads of pants and bras from Primark and they have lasted for ages. Maybe it is your washing machine?

I buy mine from M and S - just about the only clothing in there that I like at the moment.

Usually Debenhams. I do like primark knickers though, not sure about the bras.

rosareine Sun 22-Oct-17 11:20:43

H&M and Marks and Spencer's.

Primark bras don't fit me at all. I do buy thongs and knickers from there though.

I only get my period knickers from primark the rest is either m&s or gilly hicks as I like their thick cotton feel but they don’t have a shop anymore so just m&s now

Bras from M&S or New Look usually. H&M and Primark don't go up/down to my size and I'm only a 32DD.

My partner bought me quite a practical bra from Victoria's Secret in the sale and it's the comfiest I've ever owned. No outside seams and so soft. Apparently the cashier was trying to point him towards the lacy monstrosities but I loved it.

Pants from Primark, New Look, Tesco. M&S. Seem to do alright with primark pants, they don't last forever but they do me for about a year or so.

Bras from Wacoal, Calvin Klein, Bravissimo, Freya - bought from John Lewis, Bravissimo and TK Maxx when I'm lucky. Like Lejeby for pants.

Asda but I want to move up in the world a bit & invest in some really nice lingerie.

Lucked Sun 22-Oct-17 11:51:07

I used to buy sloggis but my last purchases have all ripped at the seams so I now buy M&S and they are going well. I also tried Sainsbury's but they went baggy and were massive despite me sizing down.

Sloggi, which I order online from Next. Comfy and last well.

LizzieMacQueen Sun 22-Oct-17 12:08:50

Gap for their stretchy lacy pants. Can’t fault the quality and they come in lovely bright colours.

Bras I get from John Lewis.

PinkLipsDontLie Sun 22-Oct-17 12:43:32

Calvin Klein, Hunkemoller, intimissimi. For cotton knickers in fun designs I love a bit of oysho. But I only buy bras from Calvin Klein, Hunkemoller and wonderbra.

MeriReu Sun 22-Oct-17 12:51:59

Asda for bras and I live in French underwear so get 3 pairs for £7 in Asda!
New look does lovely bras and underwear too

Oly5 Sun 22-Oct-17 17:08:44

I love Calvin Klein bras as they last years. M&S for pants.
Need to get measured soon and thinking of going to Rigby and Peller. Anyone got any experiences of them?

Ttbb Sun 22-Oct-17 17:10:46

Waitrose (although they're not great but they ladt and it means that I don't have to make a separate trip). Bras are ratty af because I've been telling myself that I will buy some when I stop nursing (for nine months blush)

battenbergbutterfly Sun 22-Oct-17 17:12:39

Victoria’s secrets only, they are the best by far

Trailedanderror Sun 22-Oct-17 17:16:18

battenberg I came on to say the same!
I was utterly sceptical until DD, then 18, dragged me into one in New York before they were ubiquitous here. I was blown away by the service and the fact that 2 v 'different figured' women came out feeling fantastic. They wear well and if you get them on sale aren't £££

VioletCharlotte Sun 22-Oct-17 17:17:43

Normally Sainsbury's, M&S or Asda. I find the Primark stuff falls apart after a few washes.

mayhew Sun 22-Oct-17 17:36:17

Mainly M&S. Microfibres, slightly padded, last me years.I wash bras cups folded together in a mesh bag. They survive much better that way.

KatharinaRosalie Sun 22-Oct-17 17:56:47

Brastop, Bravissimo, Ebay. I like Freya and Fantasie, and while I'm not massive (30F) the cheap bras are either not available in this size, or won't give enough support.

VanGoghsLeftEar Sun 22-Oct-17 17:59:58

M&S and Debenhams (their bra fitters are better imo)
