Just how long can I go without featuring a bra on these pages? Not long. But the thing I really liked about this one, from Marks & Spencer's new "Gardenia" collection is that it goes up to a size 40DD, which, considering how gorgeous it is, is rather a refreshing change. Normally us bigger girls have to make to with straps the size of weight-lifting belts, and so many fastenings at the back that hooking yourself into or out of it becomes a yoga move.The bra (style 2678) costs pounds 15, in sizes 32B-40DD. The matching high-leg knickers (3221) cost pounds 6.50 and come in sizes 8/10 to 20/22 (again, nice and generous). Colours are purple, white, cream, red and black.

As vital to our cultural life as the National Gallery, the orchestra merits all the plaudits it can get.
