Can anyone offer any brilliant suggestions? I'm going to DH's Christmas do this year, for the first time since I was pregant (so 4 yrs ago). I have a lovely full length black satin skirt that I want to wear - it's got a very slight A line; but don't know what to wear on top. I am a busty size 14, and prefer not to wear a strapless bra if I can help it. Don't know what colour or fabric would work. Any suggestions? Would be happy to spend up to £80ish.

what about a bustier - strapless but holds you in and balances gentle aline skirt?
Figleaves do good ones

Bravissimo is the place to go if you are in need of some serious bra-age (or Rigby and Peller if you can manage it).

I'm OK with actual bras (though would LOVE to go to Rigby & Peller if only I could trust myself to not spend a gazillion quid on lovely lovely new underwear) it's something to wear on top that I need! Do Figleaves/Bravissimo do tops that can be worn as outerwear? Or just gorgeous undies?

Ooo, love the first Coast one. The second one would make me look a bit matronly - tits too big for that sort of neckline. Will head to Coast with the skirt. Thanks!
