oh LOL LOOLLLY, oh that's made my day, I've been looking for some seriously firm support undies to wear, so no, I cant help you as I dont want to own up to wearing them..obviously.

lapin did you borrow some of wwb knicker elastic for that first pair?

WouldYouCouldYouWithAGoat Sun 12-Oct-08 13:02:08

knickers - tk max
bras - ebay (get measured properly at bravissimo or some such, find a brand and size that works and look on ebay)

onepieceoflollipop Sun 12-Oct-08 13:03:10

Bras from Bravissimo.

Knickers generally from <<whispers>> M&S for everyday use. (sorry am I allowed to say M&S on mnet, I must clarify I do not mean Per Una) grin

I love Empreinte bras, they're comfy, supportive and give a good shape, and they last for ages even though I wash them in the machine.

I'm afraid, rather boringly, I buy my pants from M&S. I like their Brazilian pants.

WouldYouCouldYouWithAGoat Sun 12-Oct-08 13:06:41

snigger @ brazilian pants (they are v. nice but i am sure not alo tof brazilian are prancing around in those)

onepieceoflollipop Sun 12-Oct-08 13:07:48

Yes I like the brazilian pants and also I find most of the "high leg" style quite flattering. For some odd reason I am a size larger in M&S knickers.

WouldYouCouldYouWithAGoat Sun 12-Oct-08 13:09:09

like the empriente bras but the woman in that link looks possessed.

bran Sun 12-Oct-08 13:21:51

I was just thinking as I did the link that she looks as though she has cateracts or something. If you scroll down the next woman is doing something naughty with her hands just out of photo shot. grin

WouldYouCouldYouWithAGoat Sun 12-Oct-08 13:23:41

i think she is rearranging her iris thong!

S1ur Sun 12-Oct-08 13:28:13


But I want 'matching', which might limit places like ebay I think.

La senza has a maybe one nice one though..

is this bad??

oh dear, check out the matching thong

Off to surf m&s

S1ur Sun 12-Oct-08 13:30:01

empriente blue is nice, agree first woman is demonic.

Aitch Sun 12-Oct-08 13:30:40

m&s had a lovely blue set with frilled camis.

S1ur Sun 12-Oct-08 13:34:09

hmm just looking now Aitch, they've got a good selection.

S1ur Sun 12-Oct-08 13:46:50

this is simple




Not thrilled by any of them really, sigh. Think I'll have to go in..

So I'll go m&s, anyway else?

bran Sun 12-Oct-08 14:01:39

M&S bras never fit me, they ride up and dig in and are generally nasty.

MorrisZapp Sun 12-Oct-08 16:08:30

I wear Primark pants for everyday - a 5 pack of minis costs £2.50 and they are decent quality IF you are willing to humiliate yourself by going up at least one size - I'm a 16-18 in their pants, despite being a 14 in RL.

If you're lucky enough to go to the USA, American Eagle have truly gorgeous boy style pants in great quality heavy cotton ideal for winter. Again, for best flattery go up a size. I'm an XL, which look huge but in fact sit nicely without nipping my fat hips

MorrisZapp Sun 12-Oct-08 16:10:55


They really are lovely.

MorrisZapp Sun 12-Oct-08 16:11:32

bran Sun 12-Oct-08 16:12:46

I usually have to go down a size in M&S pants, but I'm apple-shape so have disproportionately small hips.

I think boy pants only really look nice if you have a nice round bum and rounded hips, I look like a bloke in them. sad

MorrisZapp Sun 12-Oct-08 16:24:22

Nice round bum and rounded hips... yup, I've got that all right

Never saw it as a blessing before but that's a very cheerful thought!

Bet you look great in skinny jeans, I look like a beachball with feet in them
