Yes is my impression ... the few things I've seen have had too much going on tho ...

I have some Calvin Klein lace that's good under clothes ... I'm always looking for things that will be invisible. Cosabella boy shorts are good for that, but the nylon mesh isn't very comfortable. You would think rayon/lyocell would be pretty comfortable, but I don't recall ever seeing it used in this context ...

Budding young designers of tFS, I see an opportunity here

kaki: How well does the AP Kitty bra fit? I'm on the hunt for something more bralet-ish but with good support (I'm a b), to wear underneath sheer t-shirts and v-necks..

I agree - I love both Elle Macpherson and Agent Provocateur. My favorite bra is probably either my green satin Nikita or my blue Kitty bra from AP! I'm extremely small in the top (30b, 32a), so I really have to dig around for something sexy (and usually end up splurging.)

I really love Chantal Thomass's designs, but I'm having trouble finding US boutiques that carry their product!

Has anyone tried the new Stella McCartney lingerie collection? I ran into my local Neiman's to check it out, and wasn't very impressed. As someone who spent a few months working in Lingerie at Nordstrom, I have to say that I'm not very impressed. I think Natori is really comparable, without the really high price point. Any thoughts?

Stella - if you're a B, it might fit you just fine! It seems as if it would fit a 32b, or a shallow 32c ideally. I love wearing it under sheer v-necks - it looks great with the lace peeking out! It's a little bit loose on me, so I don't find it a great support bra (not like the Nikita), but I think that if you were bigger in the cup, it might offer better support! It actually has wires in the sides (you can't feel them, though), but my boobs are so small that I don't need them, haha.

Best to check what AP's return policy is on bras, just in case you don't like how it feels! Other than that, it's great quality~ Love it!

Oh, that sounds great! We have an AP store in Stockholm so I will probably go there and try it on in person. I looked on the website and it comes in a champagne colour too.. I think I like the blue better but champagne might look better with white. I have a lot of sheer white t-shirts..

Anyway, thanks for the reply

^^ I looked at the Stella McCartney lingerie in flesh yesterday. I, too, was unimpressed. The price definitely didn't seem justified. The bras were no better than the other high-end ones that cost half as much.

are they only sold at stella boutiques? i've only seen pictures of them on her website but i didn't think they looked that bad..i guess that's the magic of photo-editing

kismine: No, the line is aslo sold at department stores. And yes, I think the styling in the promo pictures makes the pieces seem a lot more beautiful than they are.
