And why would I want more padding when I already have plenty of padding of my own?!
Very cross and disheartend

I wear the M&S minimiser ones. Am 32/34E. They are very plain and give smooth lines under clothes. No padding!

MrsSeanBean Sat 11-Jul-09 18:02:51

The much maligned M&S help me out in this area. They do (or did) a range called 'Body' which was seamfree but with no padding. I can't find it on the website though, but bought a 2-pack about 5 weeks ago for about £16.

I've looked at those but they don't seem to come in many designs. And don't they just push your boobs under your armpits?

citronella Sat 11-Jul-09 18:03:50

I mean the minimiser ones

Simples Sat 11-Jul-09 18:03:54

oh yes hold on i found a great one kind of less pointy

HumphreyCobbler Sat 11-Jul-09 18:03:55

I like freya, they don't squish them together

Simples Sat 11-Jul-09 18:04:44

here nice and plain for t shirts, get a size bigger than you normally are

janeite Sat 11-Jul-09 18:05:32

Feels under armpits.....


citronella Sat 11-Jul-09 18:05:52

will check out 'Body' do they come in different colours? I am so bored of black, white, beige. I would like to see chocolate, purple, gun grey...

MrsMcCluskey Sat 11-Jul-09 18:06:41

I like the wonderbra tshirt bras
I need a bit oh hoiking believe you me!

citronella Sat 11-Jul-09 18:07:42

That's not bad Simples. Bit pricey though

LackaDAISYcal Sat 11-Jul-09 18:08:46

Debenhams do a range of bigger sized bras that start at £12.

I like these. They are lined, but not padded and give a lovely shape whilst minimising any unwanted nipple detail!!

citronella Sat 11-Jul-09 18:08:46

freya? Is that online?

Simples Sat 11-Jul-09 18:09:00

yes but nO wobble.
I used to teach teenage boys and the experience has affected all subsequent bra buying.
pLAIN, no lace and no wobble

citronella Sat 11-Jul-09 18:10:55

I like those debenhams one. The black one's nice.
Things are starting to look up.

HumphreyCobbler Sat 11-Jul-09 18:12:30

bravissimo sells freya

thinking about it they are quite pricey, £25.

I have to spend the money as I have enormous 330GG norks

citronella Sat 11-Jul-09 18:12:42

lace is a traitor. Looks so pretty on its own then under clothes you look like you'be got pebbledashed breasts.

Simples Sat 11-Jul-09 18:13:43

its never good for everyday

citronella Sat 11-Jul-09 18:16:18

330 GG shock??

When I was pregnant my boobs shot up to F from B and seemed to have settled back to DD now.

Humphrey have you ever been to that company that the queen gets hers from? Have momentarily forgotten the name? It will come back.

citronella Sat 11-Jul-09 18:16:59

Rigby & Peller

LackaDAISYcal Sat 11-Jul-09 18:34:09

"things are starting to look up"

PMSL grin

Go and have a look in Debenhams, they do have quite a nice range; there are often sales bargains to be had if you are a less than average (or should that be more than average??) size as well.

HumphreyCobbler Sat 11-Jul-09 18:40:54

pmsl at 330

they aren't THAT big

citronella Sat 11-Jul-09 20:58:41

Thanks guys (had to go and feed dc)I will try Debenhams and Freya.
In the meantime, will just have to hope things hold up.
