Chantelle: C Chic Sexy Spacer Bra

 This t-shirt bra is made of the most innovative spacer knit fabric. The spacer knit cups are very light and breathable. This is truly a perfect summer bra!

Chantelle: C Paris Memory Foam T-Shirt Bra

This soft  pink memory foam bra is both incredibly comfortable and very pretty. The soft lace band complements the smooth cups. The memory foam molds to your shape and helps to eliminate uneven breast. Did you know that most women's left breast is slightly larger than her right? As it sits over the heart, the left breast is often a tiny bit bigger. They say our breasts are sister, not twins! Available from A-F.

What We Love About It

What We Love About It

  • the seamless cups are invisible under clothing
  • this light-weight bra offers full support but is cool for hot days

Chantelle: Sublime Invisible Strapless Bra

Summer is the season for strapless. Many women struggle to find a supportive and good fitting strapless bra. Chantelle's Sublime Invisible Strapless Bra is a well-fitting piece with great uplift. The princess bust-line works well with low cut styles, while still offering phenomenal support. Available in A-F.

What We Love About It
  • the seamless cups are completely invisible under all clothing
  • the push-up padding in the smaller cup sizes give great décolleté
  • wide power mesh back ensures a smooth back
  • lined with wavy silicone, this strapless will not slip

Chantelle: Merci Demi for Lace Lovers

The perfect lace demi for daily wear has finally arrived. The soft and extremely comfortable lace of the Merci demi bra will become a favourite. The vertical seaming on the cup gives amazing uplift, while still being smooth under clothing. The open neckline of the demi cut works well with a variety of low cut tops and give great décolletage! Available up to G cup, this bra is supportive even in the larger cup sizes. A great go-to piece that's still sexy.

Beestung In Full Bloom

Beestung is in full bloom! Shake the winter from your wardrobe with gorgeous spring pieces from Lou Paris, Princesse Tam Tam, Elle MacPherson, and Hanky Panky.

Petillant, meaning “bubbly” in French, is the perfect way to describe this gorgeous Demi Cup from Lou Paris. Flirty scalloped edges, an unforgettable shade of jade, and impeccable fit are sure to inspire a spring awakening in your wardrobe. Available from A-E cup.

How we’re wearing it: Lou Paris is renowned for their perfect combination of wearability and design, making their sets both functional and fun. Let the gorgeous jade Petillante peek out of your blouse or wear it discretely under a camisole. 

 Princesse Tam Tam’s Confetti Balconette must have been inspired by springtime in Paris. Delicately detailed with light push-up, the dreamy grey Confetti is effortlessly Parisienne. Available A-D cup.

How we’re wearing it: Princesse Tam Tam is known for amazing fit and contemporary design. The soft grey of the Confetti Balconette works great as a neutral and the light push-up offers great shape under your favourite blouse.

Forget flowers, Elle MacPherson’s Magenta Dentelle is the sweetest part of spring. Dentelle lace and corset-fit-cups offer exceptional support and a boudoir- inspired fit that’s both functional and oh-so feminine. Make it a set with the matching Magenta panty for a boudoir statement. Available from A-F cup.

How we’re wearing it: Resist waiting for a special occasion to enjoy your lingerie. With a wide band and lace cups that lay smooth, fashion bras like the Dentelle are great for day-to-day wear. 

Hanky Panky is the queen of comfort and the Retro Bralette is no exception. Featured here in Pistachio, the sexy and supportive Retro pull-on bralette offers maximum support with structured cups, adjustable straps, and is made of the same signature lace we all know and love. 

How we’re wearing it: We love the soft support the Hanky Panky Retro Bralette gives our A-C cup clients. Whether you’re lounging, travelling, or a mom-to-be looking for comfortable support, this bra will put a spring in your step the whole day through. Pair it with the Pistachio Retro Thong for a vintage inspired set!

Spring Cleaning

What better way to celebrate the end of winter than to undergo a thorough spring cleaning of your lingerie drawer? Find out which pieces work, which ones don’t, and what’s in style this spring with a little help from the Beestung Girls.

The best place to start cleansing your lingerie wardrobe is by assessing the fit, style, and wear-ability of each bra. By doing so, you’ll be able to determine which pieces are in it for the long haul and which should be donated or put straight in the bin. Here are a few tips that will help your wardrobe reach its fresh new look painlessly and in no time at all.

Assessing The Fit

To assess the state of your lingerie drawer, start by trying on each bra and tossing out any that have lost their elasticity or look worse for wear.
  • The underwire and center front gore should lay flat against your chest
  • The cups should lay smooth, without gaping or spillage on the back or bustline
  • The fabric should have a good amount of stretch in both the band and the straps
  • The band should be snug along your ribcage for optimal support
  • The bra should not ride up
We recommend purchasing a bra that is snug on the loosest hook-and-eye so that you are able to tighten up the band as it stretches with wash and wear. Once a bra is no longer supportive on the tightest hook and eye, it’s time to say goodbye.

When in doubt, come on in and let us see the bra on you. We’ll give you our honest opinion, adjust the bra for a better fit, and offer suggestions for prolonging the life of your bras in the future.

Fit Tip: If a bra is still in good shape but slightly too big or too small, tuck it out of the way at the back of your drawer. Bra size can change with just 5 lbs gained or lost, so a bra that is in good shape may be worth hanging onto.


Donate bras that you find uncomfortable or never wear but are still in good form. A great place to donate gently used items is your local women’s shelter.  

What Comes Next: Replenishing

By now you’ve discovered which bras you’re keeping, which are being donated, and which ones are way past their expiration date. The next step is replenishing the essentials and indulging in fun seasonal pieces.
  • Basics: Your everyday basic bras are worn day-to-day, so they’re usually the first to go. A soft cup or contoured bra that matches your skin tone is great for invisible coverage under white, while a black or navy bra are versatile under everything but that plain white T.
  • Strapless: Whether you have a bridesmaid dress, a bridal gown, or a strapless summer dress that you just couldn’t say no to, having a supportive strapless bra is an important part of every woman’s lingerie wardrobe. A wide band and a full coverage cup will ensure that your strapless stays up all night and offers a smooth, seamless line every time.
  • Colour Play: Spring is all about colour, so why not invite some brighter pieces into your wardrobe? Lines like Princesse Tam Tam, Lou, Elle McPherson, and Stella McCartney are renowned for their gorgeous, supportive bras in colours that pop. Don’t be afraid of colour. As long as you’re not wearing a plain white T, anything goes!
