There is either La Senza or Ann Summers. Ann Summers is more erotic, La Senza is more likely to sell you PJs. But personally, I’d buy that stuff from Primark/Peacocks/H&M/Dorothy Perkins.

I went to La Senza for the first time the other day to scout out bigger bras since I’m outgrowing mine (damn pregnant boobies) and they had some cute stuff! It reminded me of VS.

Bravissimo, if you’re over a D cup, plus they do great nighties with support built in. Debenhams for cheaper bras. La Senza sometimes when they have offers. I’m not a fan of Ann Summers (their lingerie isn’t very good quality).

For sexy stuff I order Mimi Holliday (although my Fiance managed to shred a pair of my silk chiffon MH knickers yesterday in the wash). They shouldn’t have been in the washing machine in the first place!

It’s worth going and getting fitted again to make sure you’re wearing the right size. The worst fitting I ever had was in Victoria’s Secret!

Marks and Spencers for the comfy stuff, Bravissimo for the nice stuff, I really struggle to get stuff to fit me due to my tiny back *grumbles* La Senza are quite nice but they never fit me 🙁

@inspiredcreations: YAY! A convert!

Sexy Panties and Naughty Knickers (actually a brand) also make hot lingerie.

@SpecialSundae: Thanks for the tip about Bravissimo! My ladies are getting quite large because of pregnancy and I have no idea what size I am anymore. (I’m wearing a 34Dear Daughter from Victoria’s Secret currently, but I think it’s too small.) I’m going to go in to the store in Cambridge this week and have them fit me properly.

Bravissimo for larger cup sizes, La Senza are probably my favourite for cute stuff and M&S.

@FutureMrsMaher: Yeah, I loved Tammy too, except for underwear it was Etam. I didn’t even look at the clothes in there except the bras and french knickers. Cos yeah, I was a young ‘un.
