However, in the higher band sizes the bands seem to be much stretchier. Also, I find the vintage sizing to hold true only for the bras whose patterns are a few decades old–it’s not something that holds true across the board for all these brands. For instance, if you pick up some of Playtex’s more contemporary underwired, molded cup designs you will see that a 34 band bra is definitely not suitable for a person with a 29-30″ back. However, the smaller brands like Exquisite Form or Carnival seem to use this +4 sizing quite consistently.

Comment on Review: Timpa Duet Lace Demi Bra & Bikini by RDPJ http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/09/lingerie-review-timpa-duet-lace-demi-bra-bikini.html#comment-497459 Tue, 16 Sep 2014 15:38:15 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=28421#comment-497459 Just recently picked up my first pair of timpa panties. Super comfy and love how many colors they come in. As stated they run very small so find a good conversion chart first as they are euro sized. I normally wear a 10 but choose a 14 and the fit was perfect. When buying don’t get caught up in the number or you will end up with a pair to small.

Comment on Review: Toru & Naoko ‘Kelly’ Soft Bra and High-Waisted Knicker Set by Angela Friedman http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/09/review-toru-naoko-kelly-soft-bra-high-waisted-knicker-set.html#comment-497215 Tue, 16 Sep 2014 14:09:11 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=28166#comment-497215 Bummer about the sizing problems and problems with construction quality. I really like their designs, but poor construction like missing stitches and holes are enough to keep nee from trying the brand. I hope they can resolve those issues, because it sounds like they’ll be missing out on potential repeat customers otherwise. Quality is always key!

Comment on Review: Toru & Naoko ‘Kelly’ Soft Bra and High-Waisted Knicker Set by Camila http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/09/review-toru-naoko-kelly-soft-bra-high-waisted-knicker-set.html#comment-497134 Tue, 16 Sep 2014 13:30:33 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=28166#comment-497134 Hi Karolina,
First of all thanks for the honest review! Second, you look awesome in the Kelly set!
You are absolutely right, I’ve heard from Estelle and now you about the printing process of my bags and I’ve just changed my packaging. Also we have a brand new sewing machine because our older janome was skipping stitches even thought I got it fixed!
About the sizing… I’ve just bought sizing labels to make this less confusing, in your case it might have been my mistake, I’ve only just started selling by sizes, at the beginning it was all made to measurement.
I work with every client every time there’s a small problem, and like in your case, I send the garments again if there is a bigger problem :)
I hope you enjoy your set!

Here’s hoping they improve on the quality soon.

Mine smelt awful when it turned up too :( Managed to get it out with a few washes so not the end of the world, but I wouldn’t want to give anything by this brand as a gift. I wasn’t overly impressed with the quality either but it is a cute set, I wear it fairly regularly :)

Adorable and sexy at the same time. TLA is my fave blog. Thank you so much, Cora!

Comment on An Update on Adore Me Lingerie, Part 1: Why We’re Revisiting the Brand by Dee Lushious http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/03/new-design-new-direction-update-adore-lingerie.html#comment-495805 Tue, 16 Sep 2014 03:21:32 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=20476#comment-495805 And this experienve was in August/Sept of this year – since the part 3 article came out. Yes I received the email prior to the subscription being charged, but I assumed that it was related to my one purchase– and does everyone open and read every single email that Amazon or ebay sends you when you’ve ordered something, confirming every single step of your order? Sending out an email (that they MUST know is pretty darn likely to be overlooked or to go into a spam filter) is still crappy scammy service — Just make it much clearer when I make the first purchase so that we can opt out then and there!! And the whole “giving a month to get the refund” thing sounds like it’s meant to be a nice customer service thing, but it’s in AM’s OWN interest to not have me call VISA to have them remove the charge for fraud, because they’ll get dinged by VISA. If I catch someone taking my wallet out of my purse, I’m not gonna think that they’re a nice person for putting my wallet back when they could have just ran off.

The automatic opt-in for their “subscription” seems to try to target people who don’t pay close attention to thier credit card bills. I ordered a cute set from them because I won it, so I wasn’t supposed to pay ANYTHING, but after the inital free purchase from them, I started getting the “subscription” fee. I don’t recall realizing that I was signing up to be charge $40 a month!! I might have signed up for what I THOUGHT was a subscription to an email newsletter, but I did NOT think that I was signing up for a monthly bra purchase!! And then I had to call them to confirm that I wanted to be removed, which is frankly BS because I didn’t have to call to get added! They claim that it’s for “security reasons,” but I seriously wonder whether it’s just to deter people from calling (because if thier site is secure enough to SEND my credit card info through, why isn’t it secure enough to cancel a subscription on?). Overall, thier stuff is kinda cute and I like the lace and colour combinations, and I might have occassionally bought a set, but there’s no way in heck that I’m going to ever buy from them after their borderline-scam subscription sign-up stuff for what was supposed to be a prize and no cost or hassel!!

Comment on A Quick Look at the New Intimate Britney Spears Lingerie Collection by Dee Lushious http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/09/quick-look-new-intimate-britney-spears-lingerie-collection.html#comment-495728 Tue, 16 Sep 2014 02:45:26 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=28768#comment-495728 I’ve been getting emails from Change about this for awhile, and am just kinda Meh now that I’m seeing it. The colours and combinations don’t look a whole lot different than other Change bras and combinations – I would definitely not have walked into their shop and thought that this was any new direction! Also, it’s worth noting thier K is smaller than ukGG, so it seems really innovative that they go so large, but they seem to have their own weird sizing method.
