DD+ Bra Sizes Have Several Names

Gigi's Closet's famous DD+ department continues to help full-chested women find bras that fit just right. However, you need to know that while American cup size ranges are A, B, C, D, DD, DDD, there are several brands that measure a bit differently. For example, Elle MacPherson bras are made for sizes A, B, C, D, DD, E. And most French brands, like Aubade and Lejaby, run A, B, C, D, E, F, G. So a DDD cup would be an F cup in their bras. DD cups would be an E cup. So, remember that if you are a DD or a DDD cup, also search for E and F cups because they will fit too. This will give you a wider range of DD+ bras to choose from. You can always check our fitting room that offers the size ranges for each brand to make sure you are purchasing the right sizes.

Lingerie Trend: Teddies

As the lingerie as outerwear trend continues to evolve, teddies (or bodysuits) are one of the most popular garments leading the scene. With the whole '80s-hipster style sweeping the nation, it's no wonder that onesies have added a certain amount of sex appeal in the bedroom. Gigi's Closet offers some of this season's hottest teddies made by brands like Carol Malony and Si Belle. The flirtatious colors and fabrics that both designers use add another level excitement to these already fantabulous numbers!

Get this polka dot teddy made by Carol Malony for just $77 at Gigi's Closet.

Introducing Sassybax at Gigi's Closet

Gigi's Closet is now carrying Sassybax, the latest trend in shapewear. Now the idea of wearing shapewear may eerily remind you of your Aunt Mildred, but that is all changing. In fact, Confessions of a Shopaholic star Isla Fisher swears by it. Sassybax was a large part of the reason she was able to wear all those form-fitting clothes for the movie just months after giving birth. Their seamless bras are also comfortable, and they actually work! A customer even wrote that the Sassybax Underwire "works, IT REALLY WORKS! I danced all night in this thing and never had to pull it up AND it didn't squeeze me like a sausage!" So, try shapewear for a change at Gigi's Closet.

Carol Malony's Spring 2010 Collection

One of my favorite lingerie designers has to be Carol Malony. The intricate detail and luxurious fabrics she uses in each of her garments make her pieces one of a kind. They easily compete with European haute couture lingerie. That's why I wanted to share with you one of my favorite new collections from Malony's Spring 2010 Haute collection: the Sugar Violets bra and panty.

If you're looking for something a bit less expensive, Carol Malony's VIP bra and panty are another exceptional set to purchase. And the purple in both sets is perfect for springtime!
All of the above items are available at Gigi's Closet.

Noah Cyrus Not Modeling Lingerie for Ooh La La Couture

A recent Perez Hilton rumor has certainly got the internet a-buzz. According to the rumor, Noah Cyrus — Miley Cyrus' nine-year-old sister — is helping launch a lingerie line for children. And, of course, it's not true. Ooh La La Couture, a small US clothing company created by two stay-at-home moms, does make children's clothing. However, lingerie is not next on their to-do list.

The company recently launched the Emily Grace collection modeled by Emily Grace (pictured left), an eight-year-old actress from the latest Hannah Montana movie. Noah Cyrus will also be modeling the collection with her best bud; however, instead of it being lingerie, the collection includes little girls' tutus and dresses. Certainly not something worth getting the gossip chain started over. I just wanted to set the record straight before this small US company and two young girls get any more ridicule from the blogger world. And if you need any girl's clothing, please visit their lovely site. This is a prime example of how bad press may turn into a bucket of cash for these hard-working ladies.

Bridal Lingerie: It's What's Underneath That Counts

It can take a bride months to find the perfect dress. But what about the lingerie underneath? Whether you're wearing a strapless gown or not, a corset is an elegant and slimming choice. Not only does it cinch in your waist, it accentuates and flatters your best assets. Gigi's Closet carries several bridal corsets and bras. This Goddess Lace Longline bra was even voted as one of the best strapless bras at the 2009 Undie Awards. Buy it at Gigi's for $42 to $48.
