The one thing I will not stint on is good underwear. Buying cheap lingerie is massively uneconomical, it doesn’t last and doesn’t give you a good shape or support especially when like me, you are a bigger bust. I would much rather spend £30 – £40 on a good quality bra and have it last and be comfortable than waste £10 – £15 on a cheap alternative.
One brand I can always count on for quality and fit is Freya as they produce some fabulous bras that combine the latest lingerie trends with comfort, and their sizing is great too. Even if I buy online I can guarantee that the size I order from one style to the next is consistent and when you’re busy it is much easier to order online once you know your bra size.
