Default slingshots - aka big swim bras

Anyone know a good supplier of under-wired supporting swimwear in Dubai?

Think comedy size -huge bangers and tiny back.

its nigh on impossible- order them in- Figleaves or Bravissimo or Rigby and Pellar all deliver here. Google is your friend.

Debenhams have a small range but their buyers should be shot as they don't have bottoms to match the tops in coherent sizing.last resort would be M&S.

I'm getting very tempted to get a little shop going as there are so many women here with this problem!

there've been a few people here doing this, and there was a shop in dubai ladies club, but they never had any stock...if you opened something with a good selection and lots of stock, you'd earn a fortune...!

Thanks my big breasted friends - I shall let Mrs Millhouse know.

And Kitty - if you open that shop I'll be your first customer. I can't promise to buy anything but I'll happily spend my afternoons there.

We thought about this - in the UK though she orders 10 from them and sends a load back. Can you do that here?

My step mum has the larger bresticles. I used to love going through airport scanners and watch the security women wonder how to approach checking whether the bra actually had a wire in or knives and bombs. Classic

She's a Geordie so I'm surprised I've never been offered, but fortunately, I've managed to keep considerable distance.
