I could get them online but I don't know what size I am, lots of different measurements from different crazy ladies, and especially trying a new brand/style I'm unlikely to be able to guess the size.

And if the thought of saggy joggers' breasts makes you need a lie down then I think you should get out more!! Get up earlier and watch fit joggers, I reckon, e.g. all those hott boatie babes, rather than ungainly lumps like me who don't get up till after 10:30. :-)

Make a trip to Rigby & Peller, then. I dunno if they sell sports bras, but they'll have something you'll like.

ARGH NOT RIGBY COCKING PELLER. Is this the Ladies' Loos or something? I thought I was at least safe from men telling me that there was only one sodding bra shop in the universe, but apparently not.

But seriously, they're good: they'll tell you what size you _really_ are.

Are you really telling me that these guys are the only people in the universe with the power of boob-measuring? And it's just some kind of coincidence that they also have the power to sell you the only bra in the universe guaranteed to be your actual size, and it's some kind of super-extra-coincidence that they cost like a million pounds each, because that's the price of their super-secret Science Of Norks?

(How do you know anyway? You spend 200 quid on underwear for her, of course she's going to tell you it's the best underwear shop in the world.)

Anyway, if it's true that they're the only people in the world who can do it, then fine, but in that case I'm not supporting fucking closed-source bra-sizing. I'm going to reengineer the Rigby and Peller method from scratch. It will take a hell of a lot of research but I think I'm the woman for the job OH YES.

Hahaha hello Janet I love you so much can I have your babies. LOOK you should probably get measured for a sports bra esp if you TOTALLY have no idea of your size but M&S is fine yanno. My favourite sports bras are actually M&S brand non-underwired ones for high impact - they are v good and most importantly come in BLACK - white bras just get grey in the wash instantly and sports bras NEED washing each week (or at least if you actually exercise in them). THey're about £15 I think.

I'm running outside now, I like it! Very different to running on treadmill. Am a bit concerned though because I don't end up pushing myself fast enough as I can't set myself a challenging speed and just end up pootling along and not getting results. AND there's not much fun to have running round south bermondsey estates! might go to peckham rye for a run tomorrow if my HEAD CAN STOP HURTING and every part of me will stop aching and my throat can swallow sans pain etc etc.

Well I did think of going into the woman-measuring business myself, once I knew how awful it was for you all, but there was a mysterious lack of women queuing up to have me measure their bits.

This tends not to help much because bras from different manufacturers vary so much. Even bras from the same manufacturer in different styles vary in size. The only way I can make sure I'm buying a bra that fits is to try it on:-(

(Oh but that's okay because R&P can sell you exactly the right size of their own bras, the ones they get oodles of money for, and why would anybody want to wear any other kind of bra anyway?)

If you think you might be a smaller back/larger cup size you could try Bravissimo. I thought I was a bigger back/smaller cup until I went to Rigby and Peller for my wedding undergarments and they sold me a bra from a different manufacturer, not their own brand and that size has fit me ever since, but Bravissimo would have done the same. They also have a sports bra that even keeps ME from flopping about painfully. M&S hadn't got my size right before, ever.

R&P aren't the only bra shop in the world. You are right.
