I have a black cotton strapless dress that I love but...I now have big norks (since dd3), is there a strapless bra that WORKS?

Second MrsBader, having 36G/GG Rigby & Pellar were the only place in London I was able to find one that suit. Resulting clevage, well, DH couldn't keep his eyes off

Woud the R&P one work if you are saggy of nork, like me do you think?

The point about R&P is you go there in eprson and their magical ladies find the One That Will Work, no matter what shape you are.

Agree you need to know your size first, and R&P are supposed to be the best for this. I've just got home to find this that I ordered has been delivered. I've just tried it on (am a 38G), and it's holding everything up very well, even in strapless mode. But I've only had it on for 5 minutes, so no idea how comfortable it'll be in the long run. Also, I generally prefer to wear seamfree bras, and I'm looking in the mirror at the outline of the seams on this one under the fairly fitted t-shirt I'm wearing, and it looks as if I have a 'T' (for 'Tit' presumably) on each breast. So this will be better with something in thicker material/more loose fitting, I think.

R&P even found a strapless, backless one for me without batting an eyelid, where other places they looked . And after a visit there you don't sag

BTW mine was on for a full day wedding, including dancing till late and was still comfy!

underwired are always agony

Not with R&P. I sound like a crazed zealot, I know.
