It may be increasing senility (birthday was on 5 November), but I found the word play in several of the clues in this puzzle less than satisfactory. All done now, but I still can't parse 4d convincingly: 'Price offered by inadequately stocked ladies' lingerie section?' Ans. 'OdDs'. ?odds and ends? Why specifically ladies'lingerie? Do I need a broader mind for this one? Gentle guidance please.

You need a slightly broader mind - Odds simply translates to 0/no DDs, ie No size DD (bras)s.

Many thanks malone and imagcq. I can see that (strictly in the lexical sense of course)there are still areas for me to explore! g.i.
