On style, she rules

I was rather disconcerted when I went looking for size 36A bras at an established lingerie shop in a Central mall. They didn't have my size, so the saleswoman tried to make me buy a 34B saying it was basically the same. Why can't you get a proper bra fitting in this town?

Lingerie boutique owner to offer sheer insight on finding the perfect fit

Sheer, the multi-label lingerie boutique that opened in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong in December, is something of a hidden gem - tucked away on the fourth floor of a commercial building. And shoppers are usually happy to make the discovery.

'A bra can make or break an outfit,' founder Lisa Cheng said at the in-store spring-summer collection preview on Wednesday.

Editor's picks: Lingerie

This classic red bra (HK$650) and brief (HK$320) set from Elegantly Scant is cheeky enough in hot red. The design is not new or ground-breaking but simply a cute combination, with polka dot trim and a flattering cut. Available at www.elegantlyscant.com

The self-esteem that comes in a cup

'Beauty comes from within' - and it certainly did for those who got a chance to ogle the scantily clad models at the Marks & Spencer Lingerie Art Jamming Exhibition at Ecols in Gough Street on Wednesday. The eco-furniture gallery has a glass storefront, which gave outside spectators a clear view.

Intelligent bra will never forget you

Women's underwear is known more for frills and fancy than having its own mind, but this spring/summer a new bra promises to remember the contours of your body and ensure a flattering fit time after time.

Carina Lau helps give 'wonder bra' a lift at shop opening

The recession must be really bad. Normally, Carina Lau Ka-ling (below left) would be an ambassador only for upscale watches and luxury fashion boutiques but on Tuesday she was willing to lend her glamour to a new local undergarment brand's shop opening.

Obsession: Fashion First Aid

There's nothing worse than showing too much boob or that dreaded VPL (visible panty line). Coming to the rescue are Fashion First Aid products that lift, support and hold.
