Inside Faire Frou Frou, pale decor is a backdrop for a rainbow of panties, bras and other intimate apparel.
Rubke shares a sexy tip--a visible, brilliantly hued strap turns a simple top into an on-trend outfit.
This bra will change your life--or at least your chest. Made by the Little Bra Company, its close-set cups and removable padding combine to mold even A cups into cleavage. (And $60 is a lot less expensive than surgery.)
A rainbow of hues--including the imported lemon-hued lightly padded Fleur of England bra ($147) here--match or artfully clash with anything in your wardrobe.
This electric blue stretch lace bra ($36) from Dutch company Timpa gets our "bra we never thought we could wear" award: Even though there is no padding, it still looks smooth and shapely enough for small bosoms.
Not every bra at Faire Frou Frou is made to stand out: here, a nude-colored strapless bra ($60) from The Little Bra Company.
Half the fun of lingerie shopping is discovering new, small brands, like emerging label Zinke. The bralette ($58) reverses to a darker henna color.
The under-endowed among us know that we've got it easy, because we can sometimes forgo the brassiere. Lucky for us, since the small-cup-bra selection is often as skimpy and unexciting as the undergarments themselves.
But since we shopped at Studio City's Faire Frou Frou, a boutique that specializes in small sizes, we're puffing out our fashion-forward chest with pride.
We were initially overwhelmed by the explosion of color in the store, so proprietress Alison Rubke took us under her wing and directed us to her favorites: a neon-yellow-and-pink satin-and-lace bra ($95) by English maker Mimi Holliday, an orange stretch lace number ($36) from Dutch brand Timpa and a multistrap grape-hued creation ($90) from celebrity favorite Marlies Dekkers.
Strapless, deep plunge, basics: The shop bursts with options. Our biggest surprise was the padded lace-printed design ($60) from the Little Bra Company, a brand that specializes in giving A-cup wearers cleavage. (The secret is that the cups are sewn close to one another.)
At Faire Frou Frou, a little goes a long way.
