Survival of the Flattest

Aren’t you just a little tired of the whole good-things-come-in-small-packages refrain?

Gifts are one thing (even the biggest diamond is smaller than your average box of chocolates), but when you’re talking about chest size, girls with bigger packages are generally considered the lucky ones.

Lula Lu restores dignity to flat-fronted females. A jewel box of a lingerie shop devoted to petite women, the San Mateo boutique stocks bras from sizes 30AA to 36B.

Start off with an expert fitting. Next, peruse the racks for snappy polka dots and pastels from Eberjey, comfy basics from Wacoal and LZ, sexy numbers from Simone Perele, and push-ups from French Kiss and Princesse Tam Tam. The shop also houses an exquisite collection of matching undies, cozy pajamas by Arianne Rachel and Samantha Chang, and loungewear by Loveletters. So march your tiny tatas over to be measured.

And get prepared to leave with some big packages.


Lula Lu, 212 East Third Avenue, at South Ellsworth Avenue, San Mateo (650-348-8858 or lulalu.com).
