Baby Boobers

I don’t buy underwear very often.

For nearly 10 years, I have been super faithful to these Only Hearts hipsters. A bit pricey, but clearly they have lasted FOREVER! I like that they don’t leave a giant VPL (visible panty line), and they are super duper comfy. I am no thong gal. And I’ve never had matching fancy underwear. Undies have just never held much importance to me on a grown up/sexy level, much less to impress a boy or some such. If a boy doesn’t like a lady in undies with pretzels and french fries on them, that boy is no good!

And as far as brars, I’m a 34AA, and it can be difficult to find a bra that fits, let alone, one that is remotely CUTE. Sure sometimes you can squeeze ribs into a 32A, but seriously, that cup is still too big.

So, I was pretty pumped to finally spend some dough at Victoria’s Secret PINK. I always kind of want to run away from it at the mall, but their undies are pretty cute, and 5 for $25. I even bought some undies for Manda since it was cheaper to buy 5 than buy 3! I ended up with 12 new undies.

And bonus: new bras! I was shocked they fit. This is the first time I’ve ever had a hot pink bra, people. I’m excited!! I usually only can get black, nude, and white. I’m so happy I finally gave VS/Pink a try. My buddy Elysse used to work at VS and she did tell me years ago that they carried 34AAs, but I never really saw them when I went into the store.

Anyhoo, it was a nice splurge, and a nice contrast to most of my weekend, which as been: doing all my accounting for 2010 to deliver to the accountant. I REALLY need to learn how to cut my business costs, but looking at all the numbers, I don’t even really know what I would pinch. I’ll try not to worry about it this second. I also need to write a crochet tutorial and make a sample and take photos…….by tomorrow! 😛

    I love you!

    I love cute undies, too~~ And it’s equally hard to find good bras on the OTHER end of the size spectrum. I run at a 38DDD. They don’t make anything that cute that large, either. T_______T If I had any skill in bra making, I’d design cute bras for us on the edge of the bra sizing scheme!!!

      I wear a 38DD and I have a truck load of cute bras. Check out Lane Bryant’s Lingerie line, Cacique. There bras are AH-mazing and are almost always BOGO 50% off. I usually buy their bras and Victoria’s Secret undies. It took me forever to find cute bras in my size. I felt like I need to share knowledge with you 🙂

    VS Pink has a ton of cute stuff! I recently had a “free panty” coupon and $10 off a Pink bra but it was only on full priced bras and the cute yoga bralettes were excluded 🙁

    The semi-annual sale is always worth checking out! Their website has a sale section where you can browse clearance by size and style, too

    • I’m glad I actually checked it out. I never really thought I’d find anything for me!

    I’m a 12E (34DDD/E in american sizes) and was told to shop in the maternity section last time I went to a underware retail store, not happy.
    I have however found playboy bras in my size and they are gorgeous, so I stocked up while I could.

      I’m the same size as you and have been told similiar. I was also asked at VS if I wanted something in a padded variety when they didn’t have my size.

  • Jacci


    i thank you (although my credit card does not) for the link to vs pink. they have amazing leopard print bras, in stock, in my flat-chested-small-size! kindof just made my day 🙂

    • I almost got leopard print, too! But I wanted to make sure their brand even fit me. I guess that means I have to make another purchase…. 😛

  • They are soo cute <3
    love pink underwear! ^^

    • Me, too! I can’t believe I get a pink bra!

  • Amy Cluck


    Congrats on the find! I LOVE this sentence that you wrote: “If a boy doesn’t like a lady in undies with pretzels and french fries on them, that boy is no good!” I agree!!!

    • Seriously, if a boy gets to see you in your underwear, I think he’s pretty stoked regardless!

  • Amy


    I really love those ice cream ones! So cute. I never seem to have much luck with underpants. For the longest time I’ve wished to fit into like, little boy style ones. Not cause I’m weird, they’re just super cute style wise, and fun patterns 🙂 Ha ha, well…maybe that makes me weird.

    • That’s not weird at all!! I love boystyle! I think they look better on people than a thong. Whose butt really looks GOOD in a thong!? Ugh , not mine!

      • Amy


        I have a couple of them, just in case I would ever need them. But if those cases ever actually arose, I would dread having to wear them, so I’m not even sure about what the point is. But I do have a couple pair! 🙂

  • omg the ice cream ones are so cute i just hav to go get some today on my run to the mall anyway

  • LeeAnne


    Omg, I loved this: “If a boy doesn’t like a lady in undies with pretzels and french fries on them, that boy is no good!”

    I love fun underwear, too, but I don’t have anything nearly as cute as those ice cream panties. Must buy!

    • I used to buy cute undies at Delias but it seems they dont carry the same cute stuff in that dept anymore!

  • Dawn


    I always see the girls at school wearing the sweatpants with PINK written across the butt, not exactly my sort of look so I’ve pretty much steered clear. I had no idea they had such cute stuff! I’m running out tomorrow to get some of those ice cream cone shorts.
    Thanks Twinkie!

    • Yeah when I went the store once, I saw all these shirts and pants covered in giant rainbow rhinestones…not really my thing either!! Hehehe I’m also glad I took a closer look online!

  • cristy


    wait wait, they carry AA’s?! I’ve never seen that here! I need those, too and am always sad I can’t find any that fit. ><;

    Oh! I always look for panties w/ the lacy/ruffle edges, too :3

  • Try Elle MacPherson Intimates for bras. Super cute and they fit well, especially if you fit into the flat chested category!
