UK High Street stalwart Marks & Spencer has been a reliable and reassuring presence in British underwear drawers for well over a century. These days it’s ditching the “six-pack of comfy cottons” image with some strategic fashion partnerships. It’s also great for stocking larger sizes, which are found all too rarely in many local boutiques. Make sure you hit the sales here to snag some total bargains!
If you’re someone who wants lingerie that is more low-key, opt for a simpler yet modern look from local brand, 6ixty8ight. It’s not only favoured by Hong Kongers for its playful and comfortable designs, but also because it’s incredibly affordable – huge plus point when it comes to shopping for attractive underwear! The styles are often youthful, with comfy loungewear to match.
Looking to update your collection of intimates without causing a dent in the wallet? Head to multinational fast-fashion giant, H&M, for its wide collection of irresistible bras for every figure and shape. The underwear may not be as durable, but it’s sure to tick the supportive, comfortable and convenient checkboxes.
