Frederick's of Hollywood flunks

So my Frederick's of Hollywood order just arrived, and they have officially flunked big time with me. I won't be sending them my new address because I don't want their catalogs anymore.

1st item: the belly chain in this post: http://cagekitten.livejournal.com/1560409.html
The picture made it look like it is a rhinestone chain going all the way around. But when it arrived, only the back piece was rhinestone. The rest was a very cheap looking metal chain. As if that wasn't bad enough -- it arrived broken!

2nd item: the bra. The cups are too big. It's not rocket science people. I'm a size A. What part of make the cups small do you NOT understand? As if that wasn't bad, the size 34 fits so tight it leaves red marks on my back. I'm a size 2 for god's sake. A 34 bra should be big enough for a size 2 - if you make it correctly.

3rd item: thong to match the bra. I'm officially dubbing it the granny thong. It rides so high, that it actually covers my belly button. Who the hell wears high rise thongs!? What's sexy about having your lace thong reach half way up your back? Seriously.

You can't return thongs, but the rest of the items are going back.


Yep yep. I ordered ONCE from them, and once was enough to let me know that I dont want anything to do with them EVER.
You sound like me in regards to Victoria's Secret. I was a 36D or 34D depending on the bra. I lost a bunch of weight, so, I went in to splurge on a new one. The girl was trying to get me into a 36B. Hello? The 34C was too small, the 34D cups too big, band cut off my circulation. 36C was completely falling off of me, and the 36B was a joke. I left there SO disappointed. I'm done with Vicki's.

Of course, I found Playtex makes an Almost C which is God's gift to anyone who is in between sizes. And when Target puts them on sale for $9.99, you can't beat it.

Do you have an H&M near you? I've gotten some cute things from there. Definitely not the best things in the world, but, very cute.
I'm not familiar with H&M.
I had a Fredericks' bra that didn't hold up. I even hand washed it and everything. The underwires poked out after a few wearings and the support stuff got all garbled.
I've had OK luck with them. Much of their stuff doesn't work, but there is one design that has actually been working fairly well for me. Granted, I need like, 34E, but they've worked. The straps are not too tiny, the cups work, and out of about five the underwire only popped on one, and it was a fairly easy fix.

Victoria's Secret? Meh. I don't bother.
