I hate buying bras...it is dificult to find nice pair, I have B cup but still like 99% of bras I try do not fit right.

I usually end up wearing sports bras...how sexy *hahah*

and this is what sometimes makes me sad about lingerie, when it's beautiful, i'm always looking ways of wearing it out, but all the time i chicken out and just show it to my gal-pals :p

This is the waspie I have,and how you described you would wear one Petit Lucille has definetly given me an idea! I have worn some items of lingerie out before,like a long line bra with high waisted trousers,but I'm aware that I shouldn't probably show too much flesh unless I have intentions of turning tricks

^^ my bras are visible probably at least 50% of the time, i think there's actually a whole thread here dedicated to this, haha. i am very flat chested and fond of thin racerback tanks / thin oversized white or grey modal/viscose tshirts, and i love the way having a simple black bra (no cleavage, since i don't HAVE any) show through a thin, baggy, super unsexy shirt looks, or an american apparel plain black stretch cross-back bra showing underneath a racerback tank.

I think having specific "lumps" can be a little weird though -- like when you have one bow in the middle of your bra and it like, pokes through your shirt like some weird cyst or like you're hiding something in there. the key to that stuff is to make sure it's obviously intentional and not just that your clothes don't fit or something!

haha I know what you mean! Yeah, some lumps I can understand being unwanted, but I used to work in a lingerie store and women were just OBSESSED with everything looking perfectly smooth and and flawless, hence why spanx were our number-one sellers. I think "perfection" tends to be a sickness (at least here in America) and it's sad that women are so scared to let on what their real bodies look like!

I am really flat and also love wearing pretty bras with semi-sheer shirts or tank tops.

My obsession with lingerie is starting to get out of control! I have been blessed that my younger sister has moved from one lingerie shop to another and now works at Agent Provocateur Not lingerie as such but I got a pair of their stockings called whip me,which are the most amazing things I have ever seen!

I've also purchased a couple of pieces from What Katie Did,which I absolutely love.

Has anybody any recommendations for places on line where I can purchase good quality lingerie,maybe with a vintage/retro feel?

Why does she move from one lingerie store to another? It must be awesome to work for AP, too bad the nearest store is a few hundred miles away from me ! I love lingerie but I sometimes feel so alone with my obsession.

I am sure you know of Fifi Chachnil and Chantal Thomass so I will keep them out of my post. I can post more brands, they are not as vintage inspired as the ones below though...

Stockings and Romance




Kiss Me Deadly

pic sources are each brand's websites

You can see them in larger size on their website! I think you get good quality/price ratio with KMD. I have this suspender belt and I am planning to buy the girdle that is in the left pic I posted above!

Am i doing something wrong, or do bodies typically flatten the boobs?
Perhaps wear bras beneath them, is this the way to pull it off?

I seem to have a lot of confusion here! I am 34A (UK) and a bra makes them look bulky but if i go braless whilst wearing a body the result is a flattened chest.

Does anyone have good advice for wearing these things? They are really practical, especially for use beneath transparent shirts, etc, so i would love to find one that works.

^ I don't think it's you ... it is a problem. (Assuming I understand what you're talking about :p) Have you tried one with an underwire? Given your size, it seems like that might work for you ...
