Alright, this is going to be quite an intimate post since we are talking about intimate wear today. I’ve always had difficulties finding the right fit for my assets in stores locally and I probably have been wearing the wrong sizes for the longest time. Brands like Triumph do have my size but in limited designs. Think those nude and ‘old-fashioned’ type with thick straps. >~<
Most of the time, you won’t find my size for those cute and pretty designs. I did force myself in certain one band size/cup size smaller bras with pretty designs when I started buying my own intimates. But I can tell you they are totally uncomfortable.
Shirohato: Lingerie & Intimate Apparel Online Store
Introducing Shirohato, a Japanese online store selling pretty and adorable lingerie for women of all sizes!
I stumbled upon Shirohato while window shopping on Qoo10 one day. They have a huge range and variety of lingerie in all sizes! Prices were very reasonable, starting from $16++ to the high-end brands at $100++. I was pretty much tempted by the designs so I researched on euro sizing against Japanese sizing and made a trial purchase. (Lingerie featured in this post are from my latest 2nd haul from them.)
My usual sizing was 38D/36E for brands that can be found locally. For my 1st purchase from Shirohato, I bought in D85, E85 and F85. The D one is a tad too small while the band size was just nice. F85 had too long a band size while the cup fits nicely. E85 was pretty much the perfect fit.
While shopping for my 2nd haul, some designs that I really like doesn’t have E85 so I got them in F80. Always drop the band size by one size if you take one cup size up and vice versa.
Risa Magli Miracle Honey Bra~ (F75) $35.50
I’m really more of a cute design person as compared to sexy. LOL!! I really like the embroidered flowers on this one. No F80 so I took a chance with F75 and it fits! Hehe~
Fairy Rose Garden Push Up~ (F80) $18.50
This is more of the classic “Triumph” kind of design.
This set is a collaboration between Shirohato and Triumph. (E85) $36.80 (Discounted Price)
Love the dusty pink and grey combination! And the details are dainty and cute.
Etu Rose Bra & Panty Set (E85) $17.60
Ok, I got this simply cause it’s really affordable. And all girls need a set of white intimates in their closet.
Simple Flower Lace Push Up~ (E85) $19.90
Another classic design in Black~ And yes, push up for the extra support. And trust me, people like me do need the extra support, plus it looks nicer. LOL. Just compare it with the white set and you can see the difference!
The Fairy Rose Garden one when worn.
My favourite set of the haul.
Shirohato is probably where I’ll be buying all my future intimates due to its super reasonable pricing. My haul for 4 sets plus 1 bra only cost me $127.55 after using Qoo10 coupons. A set from Triumph would have cost me around the same price.
Plus, there’s a lot more designs for me to choose from! Maybe it doesn’t matter to some, but it makes me happier wearing pretty stuff even if it’s only I, myself can see. And to add on, they are all very comfortable to wear! 🙂
Of course, it’s important to get your sizes right. And they do have very affordable sets for you to try out your sizing. Just remember that Japanese sizes tend to run slightly smaller.
I highly recommend checking out Shirohato because they really have sizes catering to A-F and band sizes from 65-85 and really lovely designs! Some really nice designs still don’t have my size but I’m contented to what’s available. ^.^
Share your haul with me if you do buy from them!
