Hi every strapless bra I try on doesnt seem to give me the support I want, Ive tried debenhams and Marks and spencers, gravity seems to be going against me. Would an all in one give more support? Or can anyone recommend a good lingerie shop Thanks

what about a basque that sits down onto your waist and gives good support under the boobs?

Got my underwear from peaches and cream, while they're very friendly there they really don't cater for 38 upwards, I know someone posted about getting a 38H, but I'm about the same and found the selecton limited, they had a bigger selection of the same stuff in BT's and they measured you there (BT's) properly. She does have a lovely if limited selection and very pleasent to deal with.

Im only a 34C but they just seem to be drawn down and are very unflattering in the strapless bra think the basque might lift em a bit

I second peaches and cream. I am 34DD and I got a lovely strapless bra in there. Just wondering what kind of dress you have. mine is boned and it looks like I might not have to wear a bra at all as it seems to fit perfectly giving them a lift and everything but bought the bra just in case I wanted to wear it later that day. Just check if you need one with the dress first ya never know

I found this one ( in white ) quite good. I have 34DD and there is no way a strpless bra would work for me ever! this one seemed good, I still havent worn it for a long time without the shoulder straps but it did hoist them up there and was quite comfy. HTH :wv
