What's the best place to get 'em? New Look? Primark? H&M?

They are to go underneath normal tops so I can hoik up my outer top for BFing without revealing flabby midriff, so they need to be quite stretchy.

I just got a pack of 3 in black, grey and white from New Look online. They are longer than most I've seen in the shops and cover my midriff

nickschick - how much are the Primark ones? Cerys - is that the pack of three for £9?

The H&M ones are fab, and they've got loads of colours and slightly different styles too (ie slightly thicker straps, stripey colours, varying lengths). Think they're £3.99, last ages. You need a big H&M though.

When oh WHEN will H&M have online shopping!?!? They're missing out on some serious custom from me!

Are the H&M ones stretchy enough to be pulled down over a bosom though? I've had v nice h&m vests in the past, but they tend to be quite sturdy IME.

Prinark ones are about 97p each!!!

wow! you do realise that I'm going to feel hard done by now if I have to pay over £1 for a vest?? grin

nickschick Sat 29-Aug-09 15:15:45

lol grin.

nickschick Sat 29-Aug-09 15:28:02

i am wearing a long pink one that was 97p!!!

in fact i have loads to wear under all my clothes and i think they are well worth 97p lol.

But WHY are the Primark ones 97p?

M&S do decent ones - mine are about four years old and still look new.

I have just bought 3 primark ones, they were £1.50 each and are lovely and soft and long. Make sure you get the ones that are like a folded over seam at the neck and not the shiny kind of bit as it can get discoloured over time.
They are an amazing buy and so far washing well, they are thicker and longer than my m&s ones too.

I prefer the primark ones to my m&s ones too- in fact even tescos vests are better than m&s.
