Summer is one of the best seasons to dress for. We all love those feather-weight fabrics, slim-fitting skirts, and curve hugging maxi dresses, but without the right undergarment these styles don’t always love us. Luckily, you don’t have to let sheer fabrics and panty lines turn you off of seasonal trends! Whether it’s a seamless panty, nude slip, or smooth control that you need, there are plenty of options that will help make the most of your fashion favourites. Who can argue with that?
Hanky Panky has just added a seamless thong to their collection and it’s the perfect solution for eliminating the dreaded V.P.L. (that's visible panty lines!). Hanky Panky's seamless Bare Eve Natural Rise and Godiva Hi-Rise are ultra comfortable and light, paired with Hanky Panky's perfect fit. If you’re considering wearing nothing under that tricky dress, consider trying Commando. Undetectable under even the most unforgiving fabrics, Commando invisible thongs, panties, and boyshorts are a great option for those difficult (read: clingy, sheer, and near impossible to wear) garments.
Commando makes one of our favourite slip collections. You may find it old-fashioned, but a slip can make the world of difference to your wardrobe. Commando slips come in an array of styles and lengths. These slips are weighted in the bottom hem (to discourage riding up) and laser cut, making them great under near-sheer garments. Commando slips are fabulous under pieces that cling, shift with movement, or tend to highlight areas that you’d rather keep under wraps. Available in two shades of nude and black as well!
We all know and love Spanx shapewear for its ability to transform the look of even the trickiest pieces in our wardrobe. The entire Spanx collection is a hit at Beestung Lingerie and we stock a variety of pieces. The light-weight control of Spanx’s Skinny Britches works from waist to mid-thigh, making it a great option for summer.
If you are seeking a slip that also offers control, we recommend Spanx's Slimplicity collection. The Slimplicity pieces offer Spanx's signature slimming without blowing your cover.

Uptown Yonge's Sidewalk Sale

It's time for our semi-annual neighbourhood sidewalk sale! This amazing event is put on by the Uptown Yonge Business Association and Beestung is thrilled to participate again. To celebrate, we are offering:

15% OFF Hanky Panky
thongs, boyshorts, vikinis, retro styles, camis and more...
FREE GIFT with purchase of $75, while supplies last!

Beestung Lingerie is SO PROUD to sell Hanky Panky. This company is ethical in all areas of their production, from overseeing their US factories to watching their CO2 emissions. Check out our feature on Four Reasons To Feel Good About Hanky Panky.

Come out and support your local neighbourhood, enjoy the spring weather, and scoop up some good deals. We hope to see you out and about!

Four Reasons To Feel Good About Hanky Panky:

1. 100% of the fabric used to make Hanky Panky panties is knit in the USA. Even the cotton fibers are grown in the USA.

2. There are many knockoffs available. While the copycats may look the same superficially, but they do not have Hanky Panky's signature fit, feel, and long life.

3. Many of these copycats are manufactured in countries where you have no guarantee of humane working conditions, so "bargain" undies may come at the cost of the safety of the people who make them.

4. Hanky Panky has been manufacturing in the USA since 1977. Manufacturing locally saves time, fuel, and shipping costs, thus drastically reducing the generation of CO2. It also allows Hanky Panky to monitor the quality of their products and the working conditions in their factories.

Beestung Lingerie is SO PROUD to sell Hanky Panky!

Lejaby – one of France’s original and most-highly respected lingerie houses is back with a vengeance. Founded in 1884, this house is the crown jewel of French lingerie. After a hiatus and some restructuring, the brand has relaunched as Maison Lejaby. Responsible for many innovations in lingerie, this line exudes so many qualities that we love: gorgeous colours, delicate yet supportive shapes, and exquisite lace and embroidery.

Beestung is stocking a number of styles from B-F cup. These full fit bras are works of art, and truly need to be seen to be appreciated.

Bandeau (pl. bandeaux, diminutive of French: bande meaning "strip"), a garment made of a strip of cloth.

Seeking something softer and more comfortable than a strapless bra? Beestung has stocked up on bandeaus for the summer season. These delicate pieces are gorgeous if revealed ever-so-slightly from under a bat-wing tunic, or paired beneath the perfect summer frock. We have an assortment of soft lace, smooth microfiber and even lifting underwire bandeaus. Eberjey's Esther Lace bandeau and thong, pictured above, is a dainty piece that perfectly embodies everything a bandeau should be. We also have choices from Princesse Tam Tam and Hanky Panky too.

Bring in your summer tops, tunics, and pretty dresses to see what works! Bandeaus work best on a smaller bust, and will fit an A-C cup and perhaps a small D cup. If you need more lift and support, we always have a great selection in traditional strapless bras up to F cup as well.

Spring is a great time to give your lingerie drawer a good spring cleaning. Many women find themselves holding onto ill-fitting and tired pieces. Organizing your lingerie drawer is an easy task that will make getting ready in the morning a breeze. Here are a few tips.

Sort through what to keep:
  • Try on every bra in your drawer. Throw out bras that are worn out and have lost their stretch. Donate bras that you never wear but that are still in good form or that are uncomfortable on you.
  • The wire should lay flat against your chest, the bra should not ride up and should be snug enough around your ribcage to give you good support.
  • The fabric should still retain good stretch in both the band and the straps.
  • If you are unsure if a bra fits well or is worn out, bring it in and we will give you our honest opinion.
  • If a bra is still in good shape but slightly too big or small on you, tuck it out of the way in another drawer. Many women find that their weight fluctuates up and down by 5 lbs. A bra that is in good shape may be worth hanging onto.
  • Go through your underwear and discard any pair that is worn out, uncomfortable or ratty looking.
Arrange your lingerie:
  • Put strapless bras and other pieces that you just wear occasionally at the back of the drawer.
  • Separate your bras into nude, dark & colour piles. Further separate each pile of bras by nesting you wear the most at the front and bras your wear the least at the back of each pile.
  • Most women wear their dark bras less in the the spring. If that is the case with you place your dark bras further back in your drawer. Give the priority placement in your drawer to your nude and pretty colour bras to pair with your spring and summer wardrobe.
  • With your underwear, keep the pairs that you wear a lot at the front of the drawer (your Hanky Panky's, your cotton panties and so forth). Place special pairs that you wear more occasionally at the back of your drawer (seamless Commando panties, shape-wear and so forth).
For a little added romance place a lavender or rose satchel in your drawer to keep all your delicates smelling sweet. Some women prefer cedar balls for their woodsy scent and moth deterring properties. We promise that a little spring cleaning will go a long way in making your life easier!
