Just that, really. My bra-free days are over, alas. Soo many lovely strappy tops around but how the jeff am I supposed to keep my norkage pert(ish)?

I'm 10/12 and 32E.

The models in the adverts all seem to be braless.......

A decent strapless bra? I'm a bit bigger than you (36g) so my favoured strapless bra (Fauve by Fantasie) probably won't be appropriate. I'd recommend getting yourself to Bravissimo or a department store and trying on a few - I believe Wonder bra do a good one although I haven't personally nork-tested it.

Thanks. I'm having a Google and it looks as though the Wondrrbra is the way to go.

I'm tempted by the stick-on ones though!

The stick on ones are useless for anything more than a B cup, or a C at a real push.

I'm about the same as you 32ff and I have the wonderbra strapless find it brilliant. Bit pricey but last for ages.

I dont see whats wrong with a pretty bra under thin straps myself.

No option but to have bra straps on show for me... strapless bras are useless in my size. Funnily enough nobody seems to have fainted with a fit of the vapours at the sight of my bra straps yet grin

There are some nice thin-strapped bras around but they don't look that supportive.

Anyone recommend a retailer? I live in a city.

Have you considered the bravissimo strappy tops with a built in bra if you're conscious of straps on show?

Something like this

How about the clear straps? smile

Is there any way you could use the sculpting/lifting tape instead?

MrsLettuce Fri 01-Dec-17 13:38:07

Yes. Wonderbra strapless. Clear straps always look like scars

I adore the wonderbra strapless, it is so supportive and my nude one is also low cut in the middle so it goes under everything. I'm a 10/12 32F.

buggerthebotox Fri 01-Dec-17 13:43:16

Thanks for all your thoughts. I think I'm going to try the WondeWondrrbra. smile.
