Panache Lingerie has just added a new line to their collection: Cleo. Unfortunately, the Cleo line, (like Panache's other sub-lines Frilly Intimates and Masquerade Lingerie), is not described anywhere on the main Panache site. Cleo Bras appear to go from size 28D up to size 38H, and are described by several of their resellers as being more "fashion forward" and "youthful" than other Panache Lines.

Way back during the winter I ordered some "professional" clothing from Bravissimo--suit jackets and matching pants and skirts. While Bravissimo gives a (fairly accurate) measurement chart for their fitted tops and jackets (I wear a 12RC in their tops), they don't say anything about the sizing on their pants and skirts.

Normally, in order to get your UK size, you would add 4 to your American size. So if you wore size 12 pants in the US, your British size would be roughly size 16. I tried asking Bravissimo in advance of ordering about their sizing for pants and skirts, but got nowhere.

What do you call your boobs? This London Times article ponders the age-old question:

Why I called my boobs Simon & Garfunkel

Personally, I call mine Kirk and Spock: so close, yet always separate. Plus, they tend to create a lot of spatial distortions.

Nah, I'm just kidding. But maybe I will start callin' em that. Spock will be the left one, cause the right one's got a bit more junk in the trunk. And in situations where I don't want to look *too* dorky, I can go incognito by just calling them "Captain" and "First Officer."

Next post: The much-awaited Bravissimo clothing sizing post, plus some other stuff!

Hey folks, long time no see. While I don't have time for a full post right now I just wanted to let you know that it's getting to be last call for my bra sales posted here:


and here:


Several have been sold, but I am willing to accept offers on most of what's left (with the exception of a few of the Panache bras that would sell for more on ebay). If you have a yen to try any of the Gossard bras, or the Lepel Swimsuit, I'm especially willing to deal on these, so make me an offer!

I'm still in the process of figuring out the answer to my clothes fitting question, so I'll update soon with the info I've found out.

Til then, stay booby ;)

I want to order a suit (matching jacket and trousers or skirt) from Bravissimo, and while they have charts to tell you how to find your jacket size, they don't give any measurements for the trousers and skirts. My jacket size is a 12 "Really Curvy" but I don't know whether I should order a 12 in the trousers/skirt, or if I should order a 14 or 16 which are usually the sizes I wear in other UK trousers and skirts. I've been told Bravissimo sizing runs big, so maybe I should order the size 12 in the pants? Argh, I don't know. And I don't really want to have to order multiple sizes since I'm in the US and shipping back returns gets pricey.

Has anyone tried on Bravissimo trousers and skirts? Can you tell me how it related to your regular size? Was it the same? Did you need to order a larger or smaller size than usual? (Please specify if you're talking about UK or US sizing when you respond.)

I've sent an e-mail to Bravissimo asking them for measurements on the trousers and skirts, but haven't heard back.

Thanks for any help, and hope you're all having a safe and pleasant holiday season.

Here's the second half of the sale--see the previous post for the first part of the sale, with all the Panache bras. In this post I will list some Gossard, Freya, and Triumph bras, plus a Lepel tankini swimsuit.

Most of these are items that I bought online which turned out to be the wrong size for me as I was still trying to figure out my size. Most are new, some still have tags attached, and a few have been worn only a few times (and been cleaned afterward, of course). I note next to each item what the specific conditon is. Most of these were over $60 new. Click on the thumbnail pictures below to get larger pictures. Feel free to ask any questions you may have. I've tried to be thorough but may have missed something!

On to the sale!
