    Great news! I had not realised UK textile industry was as vibrant – thanks for the info (have already sent my first order)

      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

  3. Elaine on February 1, 2020 at 8:27 am

    None of David Neiper’s knickers appear to be made in Britain. It was this search that brought me to this page, so maybe it needs updating?

    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.

      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?

    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.

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

    Lara Intimates based in London are my favourite!!

  9. 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.

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

    What about Kiniki?

  11. 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!
    Best wishes
