Smalls in the city: Belle Femme

Any fashionista worth her salt knows the importance of decent underwear; a good bra can make you appear up to seven pounds lighter and, with the right knickers on, there’s no stopping a girl.

So we’re pleased to see that Kilkenny city has embraced the world of bras and bustiers with new lingerie shop Belle Femme. This is a fabulous store, stocking a great range of figure-enhancing lines, including Spanx, Hotmilk and Curvy Kate, to name but a few.

Our favourite has to be the Fauve Carlotta bra, €75, and matching brief, €38. Belle Femme, Kieran St, Kilkenny, tel: (056) 775-6836, or see www.bellefemmelingerie.ie
