Primark's pretties for a more average bust

I wouldn't normally write about a shop or brand that doesn't fit me as I can't give an accurate review in terms of fit and comfort, but this week I was blown away by what my favourite high street store, Primark has to offer in their lingerie department. Here are my top picks;

This seasons loud and proud trend for neons isn't just limited to clothes, as Primark prove with this eye catching longline. This could be also worn as a crop top, again bang on trend. In sizes 32AA, 32-34A, 34-36B, C and D, and 34DD. The set costs just £8 so why not treat yourself to something fun?
                                         

Sticking with the neon trend, how about this moulded leopard trim longline bra in bright orange? Again, it comes with matching pants/thong/shorts and costs £5 in sizes 32AA, 32-34A, 32-36B, 34-36C-D.

                                         

If cute prints are more your thing, how about this geek print set in sizes 32AA, 32-32A, 32-36B, 34-36C-DD for only £4! I absolutely love this print, it's so fun! This pink plunge bra also features a racer back option, useful for summer. My only criticism about this bra is that it's made from a jersey fabric which tends to stick to clothes and flattens my breasts. Of course, this might not happen to everyone.

       


Aside from the fun prints and colours Primark also have a huge offering of stunning luxury styles made from faux silks and lace. Their stock appears to be of a decent enough quality, but without testing them, I can't confirm that they will last as well as more expensive specialist lingerie brands. 
        

There are LOADS of designs to choose from, and prices at around £7 for the bra and £3 for the briefs of shorts, here are a few of my favourites; 

                                               
                                      

Most of the above styles start at a 34A and go up to (but not inclusive) a 38DD, so as I said at the start, nothing will fit me, but if you're lucky enough to be of a high street bra size, then give them a try!

What do you think of Primark's lingerie range? Have you tried it for yourself?

  1. Mrs can't shop in Primark for bras either, bizarrely they miss out 32D -we have never found any bra in that size ever in any of their stores. Don't understand it! They do such nice stuff as well, as you say.

    1. It sucks being outsized of such nice things :(

  2. I like the colours, the lace, and that the bras have matching knickers/shorts. Alas, a slippery feel to the fabric of the briefs, a full cut and a generous gusset are all fairly important to me. I do sometimes buy lingerie just for the looks. I'll be keeping an eye on Primark's lingerie lines just in case they make something that would be right for me. I do like lace, neon pinks, orange and lavender and I love the little bows.

    1. The details are quite special for lingerie so cheap. It's a shame the sizes are so bad :(

  3. This store looks live a bra HEAVEN! I would be all over the Boudoir Balcony Bra in soft floral in a heartbeat. Now I'll have to hunt it down online...any idea how much this particular set was? Would the fit work for me (28G-30F)?

    1. No chance I'm afraid blossom! The sizes for all of the above are pretty much the same, around 32AA, 32-32A, 32-36B, 34-36C-DD. AWFUL size options aren't they? I totally agree with you on the floral bra though, it's so pretty. My heart aches every time I go in there! I love the lilac and seafoam one the most. Le sigh...

  4. I bought a 30 C there a coupel years ago. I wasnt paying much attention but when i finally looked at the label and realised a large seeming C fit me it occured to me I was a 30D all along (they got bigger on the pill) I now am throwing out all my 32-34 bras and going to Primark to hunt for another 30

  5. I never considered Primark bras. Thought buying a more expensive brand meant better quality and fit. How wrong I was. On the hunt for a well fitting bra, I ended up in Primark in pure desperation. Chose 2 34dd bras in different styles. Tried them on and was so impressed with the perfect fit and comfort, that I ended up buying 6, total cost £23....I am now an avid Primark lingerie fan, :)
