Secret Support™ Cotton Rich DD-G Bra Vest
Good support, even in the wrong size
I took a long shot with these vests as I am a 34HH and needed a bit of support when I go to bed, and didn't want to spend £30+ on one top from specialist retailers. I went for a 36G and it fits alright. It's not perfect, but I didn't expect it to be, as it's not the right size for me. It's comfortable and provides me support without spillage or digging in.
I like that there are hooks on the back band so it can be adjusted - you don't want it too tight in the bed. It gives me the support I need without hurting my shoulders. I wasn't prepared for the padded cups though - that surprised me. No bother though.
I'm glad I bought all three of these as they are very comfy for bed. I wouldn't wear them as outside clothes though, but that's my personal opinion. The body material is that clingy stuff that hugs lumps and bumps :(

Perfect fit for my frame
Bought all 3 colours in 36F. Love them all. They fit beautifully on my size 14 frame. Great support and good length in the body, so can be tucked into trousers without working loose. Slightly minimises my bust rather than enhancing, but still looks and feels good.

Best purchase in a long time
These secret support tops are amazing! I was suffering disturbed sleep and feeling really uncomfortable at night. At a 36G I struggled to find a supportive enough solution. M&S have now created the answer! The tops are brilliant, the cotton is soft on the skin and the support is wonderful. I really don't notice the underwires when I'm awake or sleeping. There is a knack to putting them on and taking them off as although there is a bra structure underneath, these are also tops and therefore go over your head; with a little perseverance I've found a technique that works for me. I would recommend these to anyone. Well done M&S!

Best support in a camisole ever
I am amazed at how good these bra vests are. The description doesn't say so but there is a built in underwire as well as a bra cup which gives very good support. They are lightly padded & there is a proper adjustable bra fastening at the back (not just a stretchy band) which means no slippage. I found size 36E (my normal size) was rather tight even on the outside hook. Re-ordered in 38DD which fitted really well. For some ladies it might be advisable to go up a back size and down a cup size. I bought these in black and white and, quite honestly, I felt that the quality of the material was such that they could be worn as outwear and, with a few more colours, would be a lot less expensive alternative to the bra camisoles sold by well know specialist underwear retailers. My only complaint is that I had to order online as my local M & S doesn't stock these bra vests - they really, really should.
