Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

I don't know if anybody mentioned it already but what about erotic shops or if you don't wanna walk into one of those places try online erotic clothes shops...

Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

Hi, After searching all of the shops in Vaud, I finally gave up since I did not want to wear something my granny would wear, not attractive!!!!

I know purchase most of my Bra's from http://www.ebay.co.uk/ As long as you know your size and the make of Bra then there is a big choice and can be cheaper even with postage than Bravissimo etc.

Good Luck

Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

I have carried out considerable empirical reseach on this topic recently. My laboratory is based on the Bahnhofstrasse and the work commences each day between 1-2pm. Usually accompanied by a cheese sandwich and a copy of the Daily Telegraph (to provide cover for this onerous task) I have laboured with unstinting concentration and determination.
My work is almost complete and I can already give you a categorical answer to the question posed - and that is a firm (a word which fits the task actually) NO!!.
I have decided though that a lot more research needs to be done into categorisation and I have made a decision to continue . Someone has to do it otherwise it will remain a puzzle I am determined to solve.

Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

When I look at all the posts in this thread I have to say I'm somewhat relieved that I'm not imagining things here as other women have the same problem. It's interesting that so many buy their bras when they're back home or have someone bring things over or order online in the UK.

Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

Since the Swiss Franc is so high and trips to Italy so cheap, why not treat yourself? I seen a few well-laden mamacitas so they must cater to all.

Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

I went through about 4 out of 8 of the pages on this thread, but couldn't do the whole haul, so apologies if this is already on here, but I'm sure I've seen a Victoria's Secret on the last road left off Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich, before you get to Paradeplatz, heading in the direction of the lake.

Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

I'm yet to find a shop in Switzerland that sells bras that fit me properly. I grew up in Switzerland and finding bras was always a nightmare. I usually got them from Beladona but they didn't do my back size (I'm a 30FF).

Step on them? I'm not at the point where I have to kick them out of the way in the morning.... yet!

Actually going without can be painful for lot of women, I wince when I see women whose breasts have taken up independent momentum while jogging.

Thanks for the info, it's just that I dont't have the time to go to Zurich during opening hours.

Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

Why is it that the only products available here are grandmother beige color contraptions ?

The only answer I've found is to go to the UK or fork out 150 SFr for Primadonna

If you're looking for D to F cup with a small back (like the one below), ..... just forget it.
Try the onlince shops in the US or the UK.

I wince too. It's just plain stupid and not very appealing either.
A good way to look like an old bag very quickly too.

In the South, new mothers are even encouraged to keep wearing their bras even at night, as correct support goes a very long way in helping the delicate tissue not get stretched out of shape and stay smooth.
