thanks for the info, lafindesiecle...love your username by the way

I third intimissimi, the limited experience I've had has been good.
But I usually end up using Wacoal or Triumph; not as cheap as VS but they have a good balance of quality, fit, design and price and have lasted a long time.

Anyone know of any basic lingerie brands in France??

i like the basic stuff at h&m
and i love some of things from elle macpherson even though i wasnt a fan before i think its because i got my sizing wrong the first time i purchased some things from the brand!
i do really enjoy the la senza and topshop deals for like 5 pairs for x , or 10 pairs for x or whatever...but then i do prefer matching underwear so i tend to purchase these when i really want to go shopping but cant afford anything and buying a couple of pairs of knickers make me feel like ive bought a lot!

isn't intimissimi owned by or at least somehow distributed thru VS? i feel like i've seen that as a 'department' in the VS at malls and stuff.

Nothing basic about it, but I know you can get a couture bra (OK, not haute couture, but made using a similar process of multiple fittings, custom design, you choose the materials, etc.) in Paris. I have wanted to do this since I read about it

I came across some of the basic pieces on the H&M website. WHY DO WE NOT HAVE H&M HERE? Aren't these just the cutest?





h&m online shop

F*ck me. I would DIE for an H&M right now.

Very sexy indeed... Not very often do we see a piece that's that sexy and not vulgar.

hahahaha i honestly just bought that bra-slip and the top corset-bra!! they're adorable, but the lace honestly is pretty scratchy and the bow on the first one isn't very firmly sewed on. the slip is great though and now i want more slips that also have a light underwire bra built into them, it's very flattering and comfortable and keeps the slip from like, twisting around under my dress or whatever too!

h+m's tendency to run very small also makes me quite happy in lingerie i don't like buying a skirt that has a size number 3 sizes bigger than i'm used to, but having their 'small' bras actually FIT me is really awesome. ha.

Don't. Everything looks 1000% better online than it does in the stores. I gave up on H&M lingerie a long while ago...

H&M sizing is gigantic compared to other brands I've tried, esp when it comes to lingerie. Even a 70 is too big for me.

seriously? maybe things translate differently between countries and i guess we americans are too used to everyone catering to our nation's on-average obesity. i would say most folks would agree i am quite thin and of course american chain stores like gap vanity size like woah -- i cannot even find things that fit me at gap, for example -- so among most american stores and american designers i am used to finding the smallest size on the rack and it fitting. but at h+m i find i am usually wearing mediums, and i find their lingerie to run small here too... hmm.

guess the moral of the story is everyone should go and try things on

What's the consensus on the quality of La Senza?
