For the last couple years, Victoria’s Secret has been carrying Intimissimi underwear in their stores in the United States. I heard recently that VS was planning to end the Intimissimi line in their stores.
I was a bit surprised to realize how much popular Intimissimi became among Americans. I use to buy quite a lot Intimissimi bras in Italy and recently had the chance to buy lingerie at VS New York.
It seems Intimissimi bra were better priced in the US and had more options than VS`s bras. But even if the quality of bras and panties is indeed much better than what VS caries, I do not think their hired bra fits any better. Actually I think it is quite uncomfortable. This last bra I tried is made with microsmooth fabric that disappears under clothes. It grants a totally smooth look and feel. It is sexy, young, very Italian but, in my opinion, it is not comfortable at all ,besides less versatile than VS`s similar model. And the sizing is a bit of a problem. For example, all sizes 30B, 32A and 32B fall under same size 1 and I think it has quite difference. It never fits me perfectly and the American sizing works much better for me, offering us band size, cup size and bust measurement.
