Urgent style quest I need a purple bra

(16 Posts)

Size 36f (ish) so no little skimpy things - it needs to be built to carry weight

My dress is going to show it a tiny bit at the back (which I hate) so I am going to minimise it by buying a purple one

If I can't buy bra I will buy some ribbon/material and make a little "tube" to slot my bra strap into so it doesn't look too awful

Please help me

(BTW off to dance class now - so hopefully there will be answers when I come back??? As all M/Netters are lovley supportive people??)

Our bra shop is closing down, I could see if they have one in purple if you like. I got a triumph for £12 in 36DD.
When do you need it for? What style and what purple?

Style more difficult - I normally only wear one style of Freya Bra - but I can't find a picture It's smooth & has a little metal heart gangling beneath a bow in the middle - I have it in 4 colours

I think it is this

I can have a look for you when i'm next in town. the shop closes on thurs so I might try on weds (when it might be even cheaper)

Was advised by my corsetiere (get me!) to lenghten straps to longest possible setting. Hoik strap down as far as poss and wear as low as poss. Bit like the janitors suggestion but cheaper and apparently more supportive. Works quite well

Hmmm - that might work

I found one in Norwich TKmaxx made by Lepal(I think) it's is exactly the right colour

Just the wronmg size

Well I found Lepel - but no purple bras

Etam or HM
