    All of the Spanx stuff seemed expensive to me but then I havent really looked at them before - I just know I thought' blimey, thats expensive' and the bras wouldnt even fit me, the cup sizes didnt go up high enough! Not sure how similar items compare as I have never bought them - dont fancy the fight getting them on and off as most eloquently described in a post a while back by Mrs James

    My main gripe in that hour though was the way they dressed Natalie in knickers and bra a size or two too small for the before and after shots. Also in the first item, a camisole I think, if Natalie had pulled the t shirt she was wearing down straight instead of leaving it bunched and wrinkled the before and after would have looked the same.

    Ms Franks drove me mad by asking Debbie every single time what size she was wearing and what dress size she was normally. It seemed really rude as she was obviously not listening to what was being said to her.

    Whinge over - need to change my mood to grumpy obviously

    I saw an underwear show a while back (cannot remember which brand) but they were making a big thing about 80% of women wearing the wrong size of bra. The presenter asked the guest about choosing the sizes to order and the reply was "just order your normal size!". For goodness sake!

    It would really have made sense to put the models in the wrong size and show why it was the wrong size but no of course they didn't do that.

    60 bras? - bog off!

    Sites like Brastop and Bravissimo sell beautiful bras for about 20-25, myself i've been buying Panache for years who go right through to large sizes if needed and they are great. M&S and Asda also sell pretty bras at reasonable prices.

    60! Jeez....

    I'm no expert on bras although it has been occasionally been suggested that my moobs could do with a lift, but this seems very expensive

    I was under the impression that it was important to get properly measured for a bra to prevent chaffing. One of my close friends swears that she wished she had been measured properly 30 years sooner. She went from saggy to perky and looked much trimmer after a proper seeing to in the bra department.

    In the days when I was young, firm and fruity and treated my b00bs with respect, I used to spend that sort of money on Rigby & Peller bras, got fitted there too. They were worth every single penny, I hand-washed them lovingly and they lasted forever. They lift, hold, shape, define, reduce, flaunt, thrust, whatever you need. Have no idea about the quality of the Spanx ones but they seem like a generic squashing device, not the wonder of engineering and corsetry covered in silk, lace and embroidery that I remember dimly from my wage-earning, single, past.

    I miss being fruity.

    I've never understood why women label themselves a certain size so rigidly - it would be great if all manufacturers (or even ranges within a manufacturer) used the same measurements, but they obviously don't.

    I dread bra shopping as I take a handful of bras of varying sizes into the changing room and try them all on, looking for the most comfortable and flattering fit. This is the best way as far as I'm concerned. It helps to wear a plain t-shirt to try on over the top, too. I sure as heck wouldn't pay all those delivery charges to QVC to have several sent!

    I was once measured as a 44B in a high street shop known for knicker sales - I took a few in and they didn't come near me in the cup and were sloppy around the rib cage. I now pick up anything from a 36E to a 38DD in their brand and even more sizes in other!
