M&S is famed for its well-priced lingerie and ladies will be thrilled that the Dubai store is well stocked for all sizes. A bra-fitting service is available. Open Sat-Wed 10am-10pm; Thu-Fri 10am-midnight.
Best for: Respectable goods. There is something comforting about a trip to ‘Marks’. You could never call it the cutting edge of fashion but you will never find offensive clothing here. Instead the many ranges represent smart, chic clothing that will get you noticed – for the right reasons. Very popular for underwear and an excellent selection of frozen foods and biscuits.
