    If I had the money I wouldn't hesitate. Comfortable, well-made underwear makes life easier.

    Innit. Draw is a verb. Drawer is a thing that draws out.

    Do they last though, I mean i'll spend a fair amount on a good coat or footwear, coz it will last ages, whats the lifespan of a bra?

    You are of course right, I am knackered & slowly falling to sleep having been up since 4.30am. :oops:

    They are this year. Yet all their swimming costumes are ridiculously impractical. (It's very hard trying to find a swimsuit for a 13-year-old girl who really does not want to show off her curves).

    Breathe out?

    And yep, that's a good bra. Lovely colour and not too frou-frou.

    colour is ok, maybee but it looks faded not vivid.

    How did you make it smaller? :hmm:

    It is a bit 'scaffoldy' but I quite like that. I think it looks quite retro.

    If you were buying it for yourself would you buy the red one or the green one> :D

    It more or less would be on me. :(
    I'd wear it, but bear in mind that I take a 42B.

    If I knew it was sturdy enough and I had a job I would definitely get at least one of those too, they are gorgeous.

    Not as cheap as Brastop.

    Like I said I've also had good success through eBay by finding out the model and brand I wanted then looking it up to see if any of those small outlets have it.

    More depends how many you have to swap between in my case. I have to handwash all of mine and I get about 3-4 months useful wear out of one if I have 3-4 at one time that are in a fit state to wear. My bras work hard though, I went out dancing last night and wore two as otherwise they jiggle about so much that blokes have to pull their mates off the dancefloor for gawping, male friends can't dance facing me, etc... :oops:

    Still had to shoulder a few off last night that looked like they were about to topple into my cleavage. :facepalm:

    The one from Evans came today. Well, I say 'came', my neighbour found it in the hedge at the bottom of the track :rolleyes:

    Anyway, it's shit. The worst fitting bra I've tried on in a long time. Asda ones piss all over it in terms of fit - shame I'm banned from there really.

    Back to square one....

    Bra made in China - labour cost - about 20p.
    Bra made in Hackney - labour cost - about £40 - time to make (by one woman) a few hours. She has to pay the rent on the workshop and earn money to feed her and her kid as well. These bras aren't making her rich, just paying her a living wage.
    I think £92 is a good price for something handmade and made to measure. If you bought a designer bra made in a factory it would be more than double.
    You pays your money you makes your choice.
    We don't normally pay the true cost of what things cost to make anymore. We're not really paying people a living wage. It's called capitalism.

    Very true. For an expertly handmade item it's actually very resonably priced.

    Why did you order from Evans? I thought their clothes were ill fitting nightmares according to one recent thread. Why would their bras be any different?

    It wasn't me who said that. I hate Evan clothes but their tights are ok so I gave them a go. It was the closest thing I'd seen to what I want. apart from the green bravissimo one.
