Reader Julia asks:
I too am a small lady- 5’1, 34A, aka cannot find clothing….
I LOVED stumbling upon your blog and forum!
I’m going on my honeymoon in a month and freaking out-I’ve spent literally the past 2 weeks in and out of stores, all over the internet, in specialty boutiques where I live, and cannot find one thing:
LINGERIE! It astounds me that XL, XXL, and XXXL are available in most stores and online, but nothing under a Small (which we all know is laughably big in the dressing room!)
I am just so tired out and sad-so many hours in dressing rooms, now turning to tears of frustration.
Any pointers at all on where to look?
Congrats on getting married and the impending honeymoon! My suggestions after the jump…
Itsy Bitsy Bra Bar: Retailer of small sized bras and lingerie. Check out their “bridal” selections, with lots of little silky cami’s, chemises, and garter sets. My favorite:
LuLa Lu Petite Lingerie: Retailer of small lingerie. If you live in or near San Mateo, CA, then you can even visit their retail store. If not, they have free shipping on orders of $100 or more. Check out their own line of cute chemise.
Aerie: The American Eagle “intimates” line sized for teens. Check out this little set that really shouldn’t be marketed towards teens! Adjustable straps makes it more petite friendly. Yes, it’s sheer.
