This month Iâ€™ll celebrate my one-year anniversary to my wonderful husband, Mr. M. Iâ€™m on the hunt for new lingerie, which, if youâ€™re looking for something beyond a bra-and-panty set, can be completely frustrating for a full bust. Last year I prowled the city hoping for a wedding night set and some options for the honeymoon. Luckily, I stumbled upon La Petite Coquette. They put me right at ease and were determined to find everything in their store that would fit. And thatâ€™s when I discovered the fabulous Frances Smily.
See gorgeous Frances Smily designs after the jump.
Frances Smily designs dainty, romantic camisole-and-panty sets in silk and silk chiffon trimmed with lace that have a vintage Parisian feel. While her camisoles arenâ€™t specifically for a full bust — the sizing guide only goes up to a 34 C — her camisoles with seamed cups are roomy enough to accommodate me.
For my wedding night, I walked away with this, which you can find here; a Medium accommodated a 32G:
It was paired with these panties. They came in a matching gold/silver/ivory color (though online they’re only shown in hot pink). Here they’re called Moulin Rouge open tap pant (you gotta love that!):
When I went back to La Petite Coquette for Valentineâ€™s Day, I scored this top, needing a Large in this style:
It was paired with these knickers, though again, they were in a matching purple shade, not in the black and pink featured here:
Even though the Frances Smily website shows only one color for each style of camisole or panty, orders are custom made. I confirmed with them that you can select the styles you want, mixing and matching the panty to the camisole, and then specify the color you want for the set.
Next up for me to try is one of these dreamy silk chiffon tops. I’ll update on the results!:
