For a long time, finding pretty but well-constructed lingerie was a big source of anxiety for me. Though I usually had no problem locating something in my size (38H), undergarments for curvy girls always seemed flimsy, tawdry, or something my grandmother might have worn during the war. Then I had a fitting at Intimacy, the bra-fit experts with 18 locations across the country, where I was introduced to the most gorgeous-yet-supportive bra and panty sets on the market. Totally worth the investment — the right size will transform your shape and make you stand taller. BRA (up to size 40J), $62; PANTY (up to size XXXL), $34, Panache; nordstrom.com.
