So Luxe... Donna Karan

The Donna Karan intimate apparel collection echoes her clean and contemporary look. Modern styling, great lines and fabulous technical features define this collection. These bras look equally fabulous whether worn under your tight white t-shirt or your finest silk blouse. Donna Karan bras are tagless to prevent irritation and chaffing. Simple and smooth, in a pretty nude sheen, these are the bras you will reach for over and over again.

Equally refined are her shapewear and panty offerings. We love the retro sensibility and functionality of the smoothing control panties. The cashmere luxe collection offers thongs, French briefs, and bikinis in seamless nude or black. These panties are exceedingly soft and smooth. The Donna Karan Intimates line fills a much needed area of the lingerie marketplace with its perfect blend of comfort, luxury and durability.

Bra Fit Guide: A Few Simple Tips For The Perfect Fit

At Beestung, we do not believe that bra fitting is rocket science. The basics of bra fitting are easily understood. What is difficult is determining how different bras fit. We do believe that a boutique setting with small and experienced staff will get you the best fitting bra. In a boutique, we understand the fit of every bra that we stock. By assessing your shape, size and needs, we can put you in bras that will serve you best. This type of product knowledge is indispensable. Additionally, we can provide you with superior customer service and attention. This individualized treatment will provide you with a bra that truly maximizes fit, comfort and form.

* The front center panel should lay flat between your breasts on your breastbone.

* The underwire should fully encircle each breast. It should not poke into the breast tissue or lay on top of the breast tissue.

* A new bra should fit snugly on the loosest set of hooks, so the bra can be tightened after it gives with wear.

* Your shoulders should carry less than 10% of the weight of your breasts. It’s the band that provides your breasts with lift and support. A snug band is essential to a good fit.

* Rely on expertise from your fitter. Different shapes and sizes of breasts benefit from different styles of bras. Your fitter is experienced in providing the best bras for your figure.

Come in for a bra fitting from our professionally trained staff. Our intimate boutique setting and fabulous customer service goes above and beyond the attention you will receive in any big box or chain store. Our aim is to get you a great fit and a comfortable bra that you will love to wear.

Margo Contour Bra

Oh So French... Princesse Tam Tam

The new Princesse Tam Tam Spring/Summer 2010 Collection has arrived from France! This lingerie line is named after a 1935 movie starring the beautiful Josephine Baker and has always been one of our favourites. The company has dealt with terrible hardship in the last years losing their founders, couple Loumia Hiridjee and Mourad Amarsy, in the Mumbai terrorist attacks in 2008. However, Princesse Tam Tam has pushed through this tragedy and continue to thrive in the lingerie and fashion world.

We love Princesse Tam Tam because of their modern take on more vintage inspired pieces. We have nighties, pajama sets, and beautiful bras with matching panties. These pieces are forever stylish - their crisp and clean lines are oh-so stylish and very French. The colour palettes are perfect for spring. Did you know that coral is the most universally flattering colour? These coral pieces will flatter any skin tone, and really make you glow. More traditional white tunics and tanks are contrasted to the light green nighties and soft and molded cup bras.

Can't wait to see the Spring/Summer 2010 Collection? Come visit Beestung Lingerie for a great selection. We have the prettiest Tam Tam of the season!
