We’ll just cut right to the chase – buying bras can create a gaping hole in your wallet. They’re not the least expensive clothing item, but sometimes, it seems as if we’re left with no other choice, especially when they only last 6 months, and a decent bra costs around £30 for the bigger busted lady.
The good thing in all of this is you don’t have to adhere to market prices all the time. Here are 8 tricks you can do to smartly shop for bras on a budget so your dollar can go further!
1. Check Discount Stores
It helps to pay discount stores and outlets a visit every once in a while. These stores might have perfectly functional bras with no defects at discounted prices. The only thing with these stores is …

Last week I got to visit Pep & Co for the first time. The store is always positioned by a Poundland and offers discount clothing.
It was founded in 2014 and is backed by the large South African retail group, Pepkor. The group was established in 1965 and now employs over 32,000 people in 3,800 stores across Europe, Africa, and Australasia. This is important as we want to know that it’s got a good chance of being around for a while!
PEP&CO recently opened a store in Solihull and says it will open 150 branches inside Poundland stores across the UK, Ireland and France. That would make the total of their stores 330 by June 2018.
Their aim is to become a major high street fashion player making Primark their rival. The shop assistant said …
Skiing can be a pricey business, but your gear doesn’t need to set you back hundreds if you get over to Aldi now as their ski range is in store.
The discount retailer changes it up every year, so expect new designs. I popped in at the weekend, and the quality is as good as every and I like the bright colours for the piste.
Adults can pick up everything needed to hit the slopes for under £60, while kids can get suited and booted out for under £50. And if you just want to beat the cold weather, the rest of the range starts from just £1.99.
Here are some of the highlights for the slopes: Aldi’s Ski Jacket (£19.99) and Ski Trousers (£17.99), available in ladies’ and men’s sizes and in a range …
Well looks like Lidl have scored themselves a little coup, with a gorgeous looking range designed by Heidi Klum and perfect for the festive season.
With sizes from 8-18, you can get the gear in shops from 3 December. My favourite items are this esmara pink sequin blazer for £19.99.
I also like this ultra chic jumpsuit with halterneck – it comes in a v-neck too, maybe better for the bustier ladies! Or what about this gorgeous cami top, love the sparkle!
And what about the faux leather leggings for £9.99. Versatile and edgy, these leather look leggings are perfect for the party season, and you can pair with a blouse and heels for a glam look. What’s even better is that they are machine washable.

For this year, I have put together some Valentine’s gift ideas and tried to stayed under £15. As per my Home Bargains Valentine’s post, why not put these or other items together and make a gift basket? If you are on a big budget, look out for yellow stickers in the plant sections of supermarkets like Co-op as they are selling off potted plants, and there is always M&S for Dine in for Two for a romantic meal, or Poundland for bits and pieces. There is so much to choose from that I put together a list of my favourite ideas here with images underneath.
7th Heaven face and hair masks
I use these face masks and believe they’d make great gifts. 7th Heaven develops beauty and spa products such as face masks, hair …
