Okay okay stop laughing.

So, my beloved (and frankly I) would like to get her hands on "something more comfortable", but are having a spot of trouble finding anything that would fit her. Everything we've seen is made for people a lot larger than she is. She runs about a size 6 and is about 115 lbs soaking wet. And yet all the Victoria's Secret stuff just hangs off her. I seem to think she'd prefer something vampy over cutesy...

Anyone out there a petite female or in a relationship with one? Where can we get something that will fit my love?

The best selection is going to be online or catalogue, but you could also try a sex shop that has a lot of clothes located in a gay neighborhood. They tend to have a lot of really large and really small stuff. Most places (Victoria Secret included) don't always stock smaller sizes but can order them.

The thing about lingerie is, no matter what YOU pick out, somehow it isnt right. I stopped trying YEARS ago, and just told my girlfriend that I like her in a t-shirt and nothing else. Besides all that frilly stuff is annoying to me.

Either way, best of luck! I know I hate trying to buy that stuff.

May I recommend Fredrick's of Hollywood? They offer Extra-Small in some of their items, which is just right for girls like your ladyfriend and myself. Unfortunately, they don't usually have XS stuff on their website, you have to go to a physical store.
If you find anywhere else that has boudoir clothes for tiny girls, please let me know. Apparently we aren't allowed to be sexy.

THANK YOU! If you buy something too small, it's "OMG I TOLD YOU I WAS FAT & THIS PROVES IT!!" If you pick out something too big, you'll get "OMG SO THIS IS HOW FAT YOU THINK I AM!??!?!"

Moral of the story: You cant win.

Unless you dig through her unmentionables drawer to see what size she's already wearing BEFORE you head to the mall !
(It took me awhile to figure that one out)

Yeah, and what's up with that? How come they make all that skimpy stuff for "sturdy" girls, but nothing for smaller girls??

Yeah, I said it.

I was gonna suggest that first part, but I can honestly say I never ever would have come up with that second part. Good stuff. Also the first time I've ever seen a "gay neighborhood" refered to as such, although I can think of a few right off the top of my head.

It should also be pointed out that no matter wht you think, vampy isn't usually what girls are going for. Classy is always good.

Best advice I have is that she has a sister, use her as a secret accomplice. And if worse comes to worse you have somebody to pass the blame to.

Just buy her a gift card. Save yourself the heartache. No rational girlfriend/ wife would object to a Fredericks/ Victoria giftcard. Let her and her friends figure it out.

I never thought I would see the day where a skinny girl complains that they dont make clothes for her. Isnt EVERYTHING made for skinny girls?

Things might be made for skinny girls, but not petite girls. There is a *big* difference. One day I'll magically grow about 5 inches, buy myself a nice pair of boobs and everything will fit perfectly:)

See the thing of it is, *she* can't find anything either. That's why I'm here. If it were just my being a dope, that's one thing.

Toast Jr, you seem to know where I'm coming from here. Who knew you'd have the same lingerie difficulties as someone with a beer gut and a scraggly goatee?
I'll definitely let you know if I find something.


Also, vampy and classy aren't mutually exclusive. She seems to want to step away from the "little girl" kind of stuff.

It's a pity the nearest Frederick's is in Massapequa.

If SHE cant find anything, then you have no hope. Ill still go with the giftcard. They can be used with the online stores too. Or just buy her a thong and a guys button up shirt.


Or screw the lingerie and buy her a spa day, or a massage with a manicure/ pedicure. The effects will be the same.

I'm almost exactly that size, and I shop at my local Macy's. If you don't have a Macy's where you are, most large department stores (Bloomingdales, Nordstrom's, Saks) strike me about the same way. Obviously they vary the mix of styles and sizes from place to place, but the selection there is pretty darn good, IMO. They carry a lot of brands and types, from sporty to classic to naughty to little-old-lady. I don't think I've ever left their unmentionables department empty-handed.

And yeah, you can't really buy lingerie by size alone, like shoes. I always grab half a dozen things at once; maybe one or two will actually fit correctly. Certain brands just don't do it for me, and others seem to be made just right. If she's already got a favorite brand and style and just wants to branch out a little, switching to black or dark colors from pink, white and beige is a good bet.

I'd totally forgotten about Macy's. It is a bit weird to find yourself looking at the same racks side by side with someone collecting Social Security, but they do have a pretty good selection. Cute jammies too.

Once she finds stuff that does fit it will be a lot easier to gauge what stuff in a catalogue will fit her the way she wants. It is really important to try on a bunch of stuff and figure out how different pieces and styles fit on your particular body.

I would really go to a specialty bra shop. My fiancee is fairly large in bust size, but more round large, then sticking out large, and no bras fit that combination in normal shops.

Speciality bra shops will measure her, work with her, and find something comfortable, and sexy if looked for. They also will match other lingerie with the bra.

In Missouri, it's Anne's Bra Shop, but look for one where you are.

Just be sure to wear rubber gloves and promptly bathe in a vat of Penicillin when you get home.

No, that's what I do when I get back from a WWE taping. ;-)

I really don't remember how it happened, but eventually I found Fleuri. Posted as a public service, should anyone else have this difficulty.

Thanks for the help, all.

edit: give them the right link, idiot.
