Ladies I知 in search of the bra alternative .

So I知 hearing about bralettes , sports bras , bandanas ,camisoles .... they池e all supposed to support but there seems to be hundreds of variations .
Recently I walked out of M&S much too much of a muchness hitting my eyes I had to ,not only that the bra I was wearing wasn稚 meant for shopping in . Some are torturous .Soon as I got home I ripped the offender off .
I just want a little support , no wires , no frills, no padding, no fancy bits , Is that too much to ask ?
Recommendations please .

Good question Zu ... I shall pin my lugs back as I need some new ones and it's all a bit mind boggling now.

Re: Ladies I知 in search of the bra alternative .

Great timing, Zu - I have spent the last hour on the M&S website looking for a non- wired 't shirt' type bra with support and adjustable straps. There is a variety of styles but each one I looked at had differing reviews. I suppose I should make the effort and go into one of their stores, but I really cannae be bothered.

Like you, recommendations welcome, please.

But then I am old, I just like comfort.. If you prefer glamour.... There're other models..

My sister took me to Bravisimo while I was with her. They had so many bras for all shapes and sizes and I bought 3 fitted perfectly for me . Take a look see what they have. Online and shops and free returns too . Excellent service

I have non wired M&S bras, but they aren't glamourous. M&S do have a fitting service.

I also have pull on bras that look like short tee shirts for the Summer but they do nowt for the shape, just stop them flopping.

M & S have got so many bra's to choose from, I like theirs.

Like others, I don't like wires or padding either.

Like Susan said, Bravisimo have a good reputation too.
