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

So it happened to me: I found I needed new bras and for the first time ever went looking for some in Zug. Being prudish as I am I thought I'd try H&M or Manor or Coop city where you can look and try for yourself without the help of a shop assistant but guess what I found: The nice ones are only A or B cup, sometimes C, but hey, where are the nice ones for women with, erm, broader shoulders? The ones I found were more for grandmothers, off-turning, ugly. So I went to beldona. The girl there asked me what I was looking for and I kind of whispered in broken German if they had, erm, bras in bigger sizes and actually I had the choice between a handful of items...well at least I found two that were tolerable.....ladies where do you go to get nice and sexy underwear for the woman with broad shoulders?

Marks and Spencer has started online delivery to Switzerland...

I don't have particularly big knockers but I like their stuff because even the fancy bras wash quite well.

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

I shop in Beldonna. In the Metalli shop I asked the ladies for help and they recommended different styles and brands. I found the best bras ever there. They hide the bigger sizes in the drawers and can order any size you need too. Join their club too - every now and again you get CHF 20/40 off your next purchase.

Sorry i need to read more carefully I guess then you have also been to Globus? Although for the price of a bra from there, you could get yourself a ticket to the UK with money left over for a visit to M&S!

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

H&M has D cups in more basic styles but only up to an 85 band. I just order mine with M&S, nicer styles, muuuch comfier (especially in the DD and upwards range) and better value.

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

Why oh why is there no Victoria's secret in Europe?

Stocked up on underwear there on my last trip to the US but will have to go bra shopping soon. I like the style from Banana Moon and there's a store in Lausanne. But I'm not sure whether they only sell swimwear or also the intimates collection.
