Vintage Style Lingerie On A Budget

Bra, £7 and knickers, £3, Primark

As a wee little treat for my birthday (we won’t talk about the silly money I spent during the rest of the shopping trip…) I decided to grab myself some pretty new underwear. I was originally planning on visiting New Look (which I also did, and came out with a bulging bag still…) as I’m a big fan of their styles. But having a browse in Primark, I stumbled across these absolute beauties.

Not all of Primark’s bras go up past a D, but they do have a lovely range for those of us with ‘more up top’, with bras in sizes DD-G. Annoyingly, they’re a bit more expensive than some of the ‘regular’ selections – but I’ve actually found I prefer the styles, and the quality is actually really decent. This vintage looking set has such a lovely rose pattern, and the lace detailing makes them pretty as well as practical. The bra itself is a great fit, and I feel adequately supported by the sturdy straps and strong underwiring. I also like that they sell the bra and briefs seperately – nothing is more annoying in the world of underoos than assuming everyone with a certain bra size has the same pants size!

There were also some other lovely sets that I might have to casually wander back to and grab off the shelves. At £10 for the matching set, they’re a great bargain and much better quality than I’d have imagined from Primark!
