Would need to do a measurement to be fully abreast of the matter before holding an opinion.

If they are perky, why bother with one at all? And please do some star jumps or something.

Buzz makes a valid point.

If thy mammalian protuberances do perk,
whenceforth comes bra?

Matching knickers

Definitely right in the mid-30s and above. Below that there is something to be said for the youthfulness of the unmatched pair.

I suffer from the terrible affliction of an almost nonexistent capacity for visualisation.

You would be helping me out immensely if you could send some pictorial examples of you wearing the various candidate items of apparel.

Thank you in advance for your kindness.

In the special forces we were taught to use bras as gas masks.

In the Japanese special forces they use schoolgirls' used knickers as gas masks.

I think the question was about bras, buzz. Knickers were ungallantly introduced. In fact if it is missing on one it won't be missed.

If you don't really know what you want and fancy trying on lots of stuff, but cannot be arsed to go to a shop, Figleaves have a sale on, they deliver quickly, and their return policy is fab.

If you are particularly big of boob and the above applies, try brastop.com (starts at D cup - really quick delivery times, and also excellent return policy)

If you aren't that fussed about which brand, but don't want to spend much, try lingerieoutlet.com

If you are big boobed, and can be arsed with going to the shops, bravissimo is always reliable (and they have just refurbished their Covent Garden store, so it might actually be a nice shopping experience).

If you want something a bit fancy, and are happy to spend quite a bit, Honey Birdette has some really nice stuff, and it seems really well made - they also have a store in Covent Garden.

If you don't mind being bossed about a bit and "helped" into your bra, Rigby and Peller will always see you right.

If none of the above applies, M&S is your friend.

There endeth the bra gospel according to Cru.

Joanna Lumley did something weird with hers on that castaway island programme.

Not that she really needs a bra for holding up her boobs

Strutts, am just putting a portfolio together for you now.

I was wondering if it would help you if I sent a picture of me sans bra so you could really see the difference a bra could make?

Anyway. Back to bras.

There's a lot of nonsense doing the rounds about the importance of getting the right measurements, and of it being a comfortable fit.

Rest assured this is very much a peripheral side issue.

The important bit is whether or not they give the impression of housing a cracking rack, and whether they look good sans blouse. After taking care of that, if you follow Clubman's enormously helpful contribution of 12:49, you'll find that Robert is very much your father's brother.

A girl walked past me at the weekend - superb rack, no bra, tight t shirt, deliberately (I suspect) jaunty walk, and gave me a look as if to say "how dare you look at my tits!" with a subtext look saying to herself "God they're marvellous though aren't they though?"

Am I a monster because I looked at her tits? How could I not look at her tits?

Feck me. You got all that from the expression she had on her face when she was wondering whether or not to have chips of salad for tea. Well done mate. Later you can pretend you won the cup final.

Upset me? No. Disappointed me. Twice now. The passive aggression in your 17:58 is a tired old cliché and frankly we all deserve better. If it wasn't for tecco you'd probably win dick of the day.
