Fashion Update: Silk undies for all

IF YOU usually miss out on silk undies at Christmas because you do not fit in with conventional underwear sizing, the Bust Stop special size mail-order catalogue may provide a solution. The new company estimates that 11 per cent of women in this country take a bra cup D or above. Bust Stop's bras range from 30D to 32FF and up to 48GG. Styles include a silk bustier for pounds 37 and a silk Jacquard body for pounds 75, both designed by Catherine Fuller. For brochure and information, ring Libby Garside, 081-943 9733.

Catherine Fuller has launched Outrageous Fortune, her own underwear company for unconventional sizes. Sizes range from 32A to 44G with special orders available up to 48G. Ms Fuller runs a shop at 80 High Street, Epping, Essex, and a mail-order business, including a gift-wrap service and gift vouchers. For a brochure ring 081-508 6655.
