BRAS!

Where in the UK sells good quality, reasonably priced bras?

I keep getting the cheap Primark bras but the wires are always coming out, so then I tried their wireless bras but having more material in contact with my skin made the eczema on my back go wild. So back to escaping wires.

I do kind of grudge spending £7 on a bra when Primark sell them for £2 but it's getting ridiculous.

Any recommendations?

Not a recommendation exactly, as I'm a fellow Primark bra-shopper (with similar results), but Sainsbury's is normally good for clothes. I've had good experiences with Asda too for clothes in general. Maybe their bras will, er, hold up?

Lol hold up. Do you wash them in a laudry bag? That helps. Also I am of the ironing board breed but debenhams ones have always been good as have next.

Thank you both, I will have a look.

I don't wash them in a laundry bag, I'm not sure if I even knew that was a thing.

I was going to suggest Asda too for general clothing so I'm assuming their bras should be good as well. And also M&S - more expensive but they do 2 packs of basic ones for £16 I think and they do last.

I would also highly recommend a laundry bag! Didn't use one for ages and wondered why bras kept getting all mangled after a short time.

Thank you. :)

Do you just put bras in the laundry bag or everything?

Just the bras but then you can stick the bag in with everything.

Sainsbury's!

I don't get wired ones, but I do get mine in Sainsbury's and they are so comfy.

Get mine from asda or Yours
Bravissimo is also good but pricey



I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!


Who else is fine?!?!?

M+S do wonderful bras and I think you are better paying for quality, by all means wear the cheaper indoors relaxing but if you want fir =m steady bras that last you a while m&s. If you are a bigger size like I was Bravissimo could be your next bet.

Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60's. Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted.
I know what it's like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. How you hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside. I tried groups, didn't work out just made my depression a lot worse.

I've got a couple of lovely ones from next but I think they're quite expensive, maybe £16 each.

Buy a bra ball to wash in. It's like a bag but a solid plastic ball it stops any wire bumping

Thanks everyone. I got some from Asda and Peacocks, and also a laundry bag thing although it seems to take up a lot of space in my washing machine.
