because I know a bunch of you (myself included) struggle with

a) shrinking chest
b) finding bra's that fit
c) finding CUTE bra's that fit

Look no further!

Here's a little feature I came across on Because I'm Addicted:
http://becauseimaddicted.net/2014/01/valentine-lingerie.html#more-40310

and here is the website:
http://valentinenyc.com/

ps - I looked and looked and couldn't find any mention of it elsewhere on the forum. Please feel free to delete (or move) if I'm wrong :kiss:

Journelle has a big sale going on right now--not too many XS or S left (hey, at least that means mostly skinnies are buying their stuff) but i got a mimi holliday bra/underwear set for over 50% off the original price :grin:
i thought it was very valentines-appropriate and the sizing was really good for me (usually my band is closer to a 30 but these ran small)

I adore this Belgian brand called La Fille d'O, especially the one with the curved underwire, I have that one in two versions :luv:

Yes she uses 'normal' sized models but it's just to make a statement.
Those are so unique and pretty! Waaant. Too few brands do innovative and sexy lingerie that isn't frilly, lacy, or floral. I do wish they showed at least one piece on a small busted girl, it's hard to imagine what I'd look like in those when the model looks like a 34D....

Because you're from Toronto, I thought I'd suggest also trying Free People (it's near Yorkville and Bay, west of Bay and of course online too, but it's always nice to have a store to go to to try things and everything), their lingerie is so pretty and delicate, and they have really great unlined lace bras and beautiful little things, my boyfriend loves the things I bought for him from there ;)

@misscat - I love Free People! and you're right - their lingerie is super cute and the sizes run pretty small I've found. Their clothes on the other hand? Not small, ever.

@BeautifulWay oh my god their clothes are huge and impossible, I guess they're really nice if you want to go oversize/for the drapey boho-chic look?

Yeah, that's their whole thing - the hippy chic look... but even still, SO HUGE! I was looking at pair of shorts there last summer and the smallest size was a 24, and an enormous 24 at that. It didn't make any sense to me.

The only body that can pull off large, slouchy clothing is a skinny body.

You're so right! At least for some reason most, ahem, "curvy" women opt for tighter clothing and spanx in an attempt to slim themselves and look horrendously unchic rather than have fabric hanging onto them and trying to pull itself away.
