    Hi all,

    Just wondered if anyone had any recommendations for lingerie for someone quite petite?

    I've been put off buying sexy underwear in the past because everything seems to hang off me and makes me look terrible. I've got zero boobs but quite broad shoulders (size 6 torso, size 8 arse) so struggle with most clothes, but lingerie is annoying because I want to look my best but always end up looking ridiculous with straps on bras/basques being about a foot too long and material hanging off the side of me!

    What about a body stocking?

    Hi LT1234, welcome to the forum!

    Whilst I don't have the same shape as you, I can sympathise with the boobs thing as I don't have much going spare in the boobs department either, so from that point of view I can recommend a few things.

    https://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=32842 Halterneck babydolls are always my recommendation to anyone who struggles to get lingerie to fit on small boobs. This babydoll has no underwiring but has elasticated ties to tie behind your neck - so it lifts what you do have and is adjustable to the right fit for you. I like to tie it quite tight behind my head.

    https://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=34590 - Bodystocking-style bodies are also great. We sell quite a few one size varieties. They're great because they're stretchy, so they'll stretch to the size you need. When you take them out of the box they look tiny, so I feel confident that you'd still find them to hug your figure despite your small frame.

    https://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=34592 I particularly like this because its the bodystocking stretchy material AND halterneck. It's one of the hottest things I own!

    Last thing, I'd like to recommend you to check out some of NatandTom's reviews. From memory, Nat is a similar size to you - she discusses this in her reviews and I find her reviews particularly helpful. Here's a link to one of them: https://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=37933&reviewid=213317#customer_reviews - you can navigate to her profile to read more reviews, too.

    I share the struggle; I'm a 28B. I recently risked https://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=36210 (the Seduce Me Push-Up Bra) because a 28B reviewer had success with it, but it's too big on me even with all four straps tightened to maximum and a racerback clip - so I wouldn't recommend that one if you're a similar size. The listed sizing is very accurate, haha.

    I'll second Rebbeca on suggesting Nat's reviews. Even though I'm a full figere size 10, Nat's reviews were very helpful a couple mof time specially regarding bodystockings. I'm very short and it's very helpful to read things like fitting, suspender straps, etc but it's so hard to get this kind of garment fitting nicely.
