The Bendon Intimates Sample Sale is seriously one of my fave sample sales to score some pretty lingerie at a great price. Every girl deserves a pretty little secret.
Seriously affordable with brands like Elle Macpherson Intimates ringing in at just $20 for bra’s, $10 for Bottom’s and Shorts for $15, Chemises/Cami’s for $30 and top & Pant for $60. Considering that Elle Macpherson bras's usually retail for around $66 and bottoms for $26, this is an amazing stea.
There was also a small selection of Obsidian by Elle Macpherson available priced at $40 a Chemise, $30 a bra and $15 a bottom.
I stopped by the sale after work and found it to be fairly quiet and calm. There were only 2 other shoppers and everything was either nicely organized on racks by style or in well marked bins by size. For the Elle Macpherson line, sizes were msotly available in the 34A, 36A, 36B, 34C and 36B bin, although there were still quite a selection of 32A and some various other styles in up to an E Cup. As for bottoms, there was by far the most left in size Medium although still managed to find my matching sets in size Small and there was a Large bin left too.They also have Stella McCartney at just $25 for bra’s, $15 for bottoms and $40 for cami & bottom sets! I also spotted 1 pack of Stella day of the week undies for $50. Plenty of Stella McCartney and Elle Macpherson cami and bottom sets in purples and orange tones. There were also some Stella McCartney gorgeous lace trimmed retro look bras’ and a superfun rainbow chiffon bra with sheer shorts in varying sizes and not as large of a selection as the other brands at the sale.There is also a large selection of Fayreform (which specializes in D-G sizing) priced at $20 bras and $10 bottoms.
There were plenty of sexy and supportive styles for bustier ladies left.all the bins from D-F were brimming full and the bottom in size Medium and Large were also well in stock.The wall included a display of some of the sexier styles.
They accept cash or credit card, but it will be much faster to check out if you bring cash. There is a small fitting room behind the curtain with a mirror. Since there weren’t any other shoppers during my visit, I was free to try on things at leisure. Definitely recommend this sale if you are looking to update your intimate apparel wardrobe, which for just about any woman is always a must!
My tip is to find your tops, then find the matching bottoms. If you find a match then try those on!
