http://www.brastop.com is a great site for larger and not so common sized bras! starting at 26, i think. i am a 30D according to the lady who measured me but I find that a 32C fits me just as well and feels a little comfier.

Oh tifa thats a great site. I got measured by Bravissimo at 28dd but they cost so much I didn't buy any from them. And people with large cup sizes want to try having a small back size now thats hard to find bras for.

Http://www.lilleboutique.com is a really great shop. They carry Araks, VPL, Stella, Lake & Stars, etc.


Stella McCartney has some of the best lingerie out there (Both photos taken from lifeinlingerie.com

^Me too. I'm a 28B (UK) and I've never found a bra in my size, I normally have to get a 30B (which are still hard to find). I think its one of the most annoying bra sizes to be, as at least for bigger cup sizes there tend to be specialist bra shops that have smaller back sizes in bigger cupsizes (although they are still hard to find)

I think I wear 28 C in UK sizes. Yeah its annoying to be very small framed and having a bigger cup size, well anyway I dont have so much trouble finding a fitting bra. What annoys me is that most bras tend to be very thick you know, so it makes your breast look bigger. I dont like it and those thick cups annoy me. Its hard to find very thin fabric cups nowadays where I live. Im really looking for something nice, but affordable for a poor student. its annoying.

Agent Provocateur has some gorgeous lingerie.

A bit pricey but perfect for a special occasion or for whenever you want to wear it.




Agent Provocateur.com

I'm saving up to get those. XD

i'm getting really into high-waisted lacy/silk vintagey/sexed-up-granny-panties -- they fit so much more smoothly under a high waisted skirt than any pinchy low-rise nonsense, more comfortable under what i usually wear, and oddly i feel way more sexy than i would in anything more revealing. not for lack of confidence, something about subtlety that i just think is really great.

like so:

i think its like a pearly greyish pink. waaay pricey, its by wondervoll: http://www.journelle.com/shop/underw...mbassy-briefs/

i found a lot of similar things at h+m lately though for more like $12, including a pair with attached garters... which i honestly love. for practicality alone. (HATE TIGHTS-WEDGIES.)

I love the ones recently posted on Refinery 29. The grey ones posted in #189 are one of my favorites. I need some new pretty underwear. Well I don't need it but I still want some.

^Oh we're all guilty of wanting more...

Since Victoria Secrets ships international... and is decently priced... I'm thinking of splurging on their site! Does anybody have any experience with VS bras/underwear/clothing/lingerie? How is the quality of their stuff?
