Remember my post about the ASOS Curve sale this week??? Well Lane Bryant is having a sale too. The Lane Bryant Semi-Annual Sale is going on right now, and loads of bras are on sale. If the bra isn’t on sale it might be one of the Buy 1, Get 1 50% deals, orrrrrr it might be one of the Buy Two, Get Two Free deals. You have to really look at the each item to see which is which.

The Comfort Choice Gel Strap Bra has super pliant and lightweight silicone extra-wide gel straps that pampers a woman’s shoulders, eliminating shoulder strain and dispersing pressure evenly to avoid strap dig in. Sizes range from 38B to 54G and are priced from $26.99 to $31.99. Photo from fullbeauty.com.
OneStopPlus Group just launched a full scale plus size lingerie website fullbeauty.com. It looks like a plus size lingerie superstore, with bra sizes from 36B to 50N. I went on the website and checked it out for myself. It looks great. Where was this years ago when I was struggling to find bras? Prices range fro $9.99 to $129.99. The new website carries bras, panties, hosiery, shapewear, slips, camisoles, robes and sleepwear. So check out fullbeauty.com Photo from fullbeauty.com.
New French lingerie brand Jour Après Lunes is making waves over here in America, but not for the reasons you think. The brand sells lingerie for children aged 4-12. As we know, the French think baby women a la Thylane Blondeau are cute. Americans, on the other hand, have visions of JonBenet Ramsey, and that is what is going on now. Just like the Thylane Blondeau scandal from a few weeks ago, Americans are furious and the French are nonchalant.
I don’t know how I feel about this. It truly is complicated. Do I think the lingerie is cute for little girls? Yes. I saw some of the same things for little girls in Limited Too or even Walmart. I do think this images are a bit much though. I don’t think girls should be posing like sexy little women. There is something about that that just doesn’t sit well with me at all. What do you think? Am I just being an overreacting Puritanical American? Photo from Fashionista.
