In the March issue of Marie Claire, I tackled bras—specifically the importance of finding the right fit and size. I ended the column asking you to share your favorite bra brands for big girls. And share you did! Many of you had excellent suggestions: Jennifer Ibberson of Houston suggested brands like Bali and Freya. Kari Schillings solution to a bra dilemma: I have found a company called Bravissimo. They are a British based website I go to for supportive bras in my proper size that are actually sexy. Love it, Kari. Thanks for passing that tip along.
While I know many of you dont live in New York, if you ever make it here, your itinerary should read: Empire State Building, Times Square, and La Petite Coquette. Never heard of it, eh? Its an intimates boutique in the heart of Greenwich Village where you can find just about any undergarment youre looking for. I visited the store while doing research for my column and found the staff of fitters there incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The coolest part: the walls are adorned with all of Hollywoods most famous starlets who have all been fitted by this lingerie powerhouse. If you cant make it to the Big Apple, check out their website, thelittleflirt.com.
Until next time!
