      Thunderpants make underwear for boys as well as girls and they manufacture in the UK.

    Great news – I had no idea this all happened in the UK

    Hi,
    I am wondering if British Bra Manufacturing Companies might be able to turn their expertise to domestic not medical face masks. If we are going to have to live with Covid Virus and are now advised that re -useable washable home made masks will need to be used when lock down is eased this must create an opportunity for British Bra Manufacturing Companies. I have made some face masks myself with little effort but great amusement to my family.Moulded cups, expandable elastic straps.(2 very tasteful and efficient masks were made from a 36 DD M&S padded black T Shirt Bra). The Manufacturers also make a wide range of sizes ?32AA-40GG.Size has been an issue with face masks within the NHS.General face masks do not fit women properly.

      The Big Bloomers company doing this.
      Mags

      The Big Bloomers company designs are in the U.K., but are made in ITALY NOT UK unfortunately.

    Sports underwear for women made in ? Any ideas?

  5. bullet on January 2, 2021 at 10:32 am

    seeking a 34 G bullet bra, black or nude, thanks

    We’re looking for a British manufacturer but all these are either beyond the price that most people will pay or terrible size ranges that most people won’t fit in. Are there any that do from a 26 band and up to at least a K cup? Hardly anybody is a D cup or less when properly fitted and we’re currently buying all our stock from Poland.

  7. Stephanie on February 4, 2021 at 1:03 pm

    Lara Intimates based in London are my favourite!!

  8. Helen Sparling on February 4, 2021 at 1:07 pm

    Ella and me!! Formerly Kinky Knickers – please remember them as they have been a consistent British company and kept with us all through the pandemic supplying special masks and of course undies from their factory.

  9. Darren Elliott on February 4, 2021 at 4:15 pm

    What about Kiniki?

  10. Lucy Jones on February 4, 2021 at 5:29 pm

    We are very excited to be named in this list, thank you so much, and congratulations to all the other brands too.
    Wishing you all a fantastic season!

    Subject of Bra’s.

    This may not be the place, but if anyone is listening to the needs of the consumer then I might have a valid suggestion to make on bra design. Many women have excess back fat which sits underneath the shoulder blade exactly where the bra’s backstrap cuts right into it showing or highlighting overhanging flesh above and then underneath. IT DOESNT MATTER HOW PRETTY IT LOOKS FROM THE FRONT, it really does look awful from the back. I have three bras which are quite old now and need replacing which have a fab, pretty design on the backstrap supporting the problem at the back. So simple, but no one is doing this.

    Would love to hear from any manufacturers who are aware of this problem.

    Fantastic news- but are any of these companies making latex free bras? If so pls email me
