Website of the week
Since I am now wearing the proper bra size, I have this overwhelming urge to buy a ton of new bras. So, lucky for me, I came across, a monster of a website that carries over 170 brands and ships to 66 countries. You can search by size, brand, keyword, or product, and you can narrow down your results by color, occasion, price, style, and whether there are matching items (say, coordinating underwear). Shipping is free with a $30 purchase (not at all difficult to achieve), and first-time customers get a coupon for $5 off a $35 purchase (again, not difficult). While they have the old standbys (Warners, Olga, Maidenform) and department store mainstays (Aubade, Chantelle, La Perla), they carry an incredible selection of hard-to-find European brands like Bas Bleu, Gossard, Princesse Tam-Tam, and Rigby & Peller. For the busty gals, there's a full-figure department, and a lot of the bras are beautiful--not like the harness-like contraptions you find in the department stores--and some come in sizes up to a JJ cup. I also saw a lot of nursing bras, sports bras, and adhesive braas (for backless/strapless dresses and such). And in addition to bras and underwear, they also carry hosiery, swimwear, sleepwear, and men's undergarments. I like this Mary Green chemise, which is sexy but not over the top, and quite affordable; Malizia's Elegance line, made by La Perla, is cute and on sale; Princesse Tam-Tam's Carte du Tendre line is very French--chic and feminine; of course, I like anything with butterflies, such as these Pink Piranha butterfly pants; and I think every girl could use some Dolce & Gabbana leopard print to spice up her life. And, of course, before you go crazy, heed my lesson and check out their tips for selecting the right size.
