    I'm used to wearing non-underwired sports bras from Primark and I recently bought a turquoise blue T-shirt mesh underwired bra from their. My first one! BUT it was awful. It hurt like hell and dug into my skin.

    But, I think I got the wrong type for me which is why it hurt so much. So any suggestions where I can get cheap and comfy underwired bras? And which ones should I look for i.e. obviously not the T-shirt ones?

    Thanks!

    It could be that you're wearing the wrong size. Try getting measured in the shop you buy the bra from cause sizes vary in them all. And yep Marks n Spencer is good, I agree.

    I have La Senza underwired bras. I thought they felt odd to start with, but you get used to it. As for digging in, my guess would be that it's too tight. Either get yourself measured, or if you don't like that idea you could see if a larger size would be better.

    Go to somewhere like M&S or debenhams and get measured properly. Try a ton of bras on, to find a perfect fit, before you buy one. Also underwire does feel quite tight and restricting the first few weeks of wearing it, but persevere and it'll get more comfortable!!

    Also, may I recommend the debenhams t-shirt bra, they're really comfy! I've had this bra for about 3 years and I can't bear to throw it away!!

    Funnily enough I get all my bras from Primark and I love them- they are dead comfy and fit perfectly! It might just be that you were unlucky and got a faulty one, because all of mine are underwired and Ive never had any probs.

    You need to make sure you're measured correctly, like others have said. Also, I think that if you pay a little more, the quality will be better and so will the whole bra experience! Primark bras may be at a bargain price, but at the end of the day if they're uncomfortable then its still money wasted. I buy a lot of my underwear from the US store Victoria's Secret but in the UK I tend to go for Elle MacPherson which is available in some department stores, as they feel great to wear and look lovely.

    u really need to go and get measured properly. either M&S or somewhere more specialised. if u get the fit right then pretty much any style will be comfy

    if its the size of boob cup thats annoying you - because you have large boobs, try the la senza bras. they do really nice sexy full support bras and they are really pretty. I agree to get fitted at m&s. Primark bras - i find are to elasticy, like they stretch loads after the first month.

    Marks and Spencer all the way!! You can get measured there and buy a cheaper one and see if you like it... if you don't then you know exactly what size you are I've always worn Underwired - M&S were def the most comfy ones, but everyone likes different ones!
