Small Packages


Courtesy of Lula Lu

I have no problem saying it like it is: I've got a small rack. This isn't something I'm upset about...until I walk into a mainstream lingerie store. It's nearly impossible to find a well–fitting bra (forget a sexy one!) when you've been blessed with a small chest. Needless to say I was pretty excited when I heard about Lula Lu, a store that specializes in petite lingerie. Owner Ellen Shing opened shop in 2005 when she found a perpetual hole in the market for girls with smaller busts. Based in San Mateo, the store offers highly personalized fittings, but if you can't make it out there, the online shop is thorough and full of great sizing advice. I've never seen so many bras in one place that would actually fit me. Not only are there tons of "everyday" bras, but also special lingerie for part deux of your wedding night.
