How do you feel right now?

What a worthwhile job for someone to do though, Rufio. Is that going to be his career?

By the way, us smaller ladies have our gripes too. I CANNOT find any A-cup bras that give decent support, apart from sports bras. All A-size bras are just two triangles of flimsy material. I mean, what is the point of a bra that doesn't give any support at all? Surely, if you didn't need support you wouldn't wear a bra in the first place - you'd wear a camisole top or a vest! When you're small, shape is all you have, and you don't want to sag!

yep, and I think he'll be really good at it, and it's nice to see him have some direction :)

All his friends have said to me that he's never showed much interest in his career before and they think it's because he's so settled with me and he wants to start setting up his future :) which true or not, is nice to hear lol.

Have you tried Ann Summers; they do really nice and decently priced underwear.

We have an Ann Summers directly opposite from a La Senza and the stuff in Ann Summers is ALWAYS nicer although I did find their bra sizes weren't consistant like they generally are in La Senza.

Hmm I didn't know that; In that case I'll be in to the 30's...oh the "teenager" section...joy!

I know; its annoying as primark do 32A then 34A, B, C and up...It's the same principle with clothes, smaller sizes mean shorter people. Larger sizes mean longer leg length. As I've ranted before I can only buy trousers from 3 shops; without shopping on line. In fairness the 3 shops who do the "tall" range don't update their stock very often - a pair of jeans I got for Christmas 2007 was still in abundance of stock a month or so ago.

Try Ann Summers; they did a really nice range of smaller sizes.

I've tried Anne Summers - a lot of their basques are the same - they come in clothes sizes so the bust doesn't fit!

I tend to opt for corsets RagDoll, I actually got a nice one from primark :) It's not quite as nice though.

Sometimes Debehams do Basques, but they're not usually that nice.

It'll have been ten times less price wise though.

PS: I am feeling much better today - such a relief to feel more normal. I was almost happy to be going back to work when I first got up, but that feeling has quickly worn off, haha.

its hard to say as all companies are different, but i should imagine that if any replies are to be sent out it would be after the deadline has passed.
