Hii :) I have a dress that I've been crazy to wear but I dont have the right undergarments. The fabric of the dress clings to the body and everything I wear under is noticeable. What would you recommend?
It is impossible for me to say exactly without knowing the dress (clingy fabric and noticeable underwear fits a very wide range of garments), but it sounds like you need something seamless with laser cut edges (like these knickers from Commando). Or a shaping slip or set of boyshorts (like these from Yummie Tummie).
Hey Treacle - love your blog! I am just wondering if you could help me out with something, I'm wanting to purchase a sheer demi bra from the Agent Provocateur website (I don't live close to any of their stores) and I was wanting to know if you had much experience with their lingerie and sizing - is their sizing true to most other stores and brands? and do I need to consider a different size for a demi cup? I'd be so grateful for your help & input, thank you! X
It’s funny but your question is actually kind of hard to answer because there is no standard sizing among stores and brands.
I’m a 34C in most everything, but I’m one of those weird people for whom the +4 formula works and so most everything fits me. On the other hand, I know some women who take a different size in every. single. bra. brand.
Personally, AP bras are a bit snug on me; I find they don’t have a lot of give. AP also uses UK sizing which tends to run a bit tighter than US sizing. Ditto for their knickers.
On the plus side, I have found that AP has a really great return policy. So, since you’re not able to visit one of their stores, you may want to get a couple of bras in the size you think you are, and then after that, you’ll know which one works best for you.
Hey Treacle, love the blog. But I am trying to look on the Happy Socks website and it`s not showing me anything. I`ve never been on the site before and I`m wondering f this is normal, or just something with my computer? I need new tights!!
Hi! I just tested the link from my blog and the site loaded just fine. I think it may be something with your computer. :-(
Hello there! I just wanted to thank you for having such a helpful blog! I just ordered a silk slip from Farr West after reading your "Everything You Need to Know About Pin-Up Lingerie" post. Thanks for the advice :)
Yay! So happy to hear that. Would love to know what you think when you get the slip. :)
