Anyone who's been following Rock of Love Bus won't be surprised to hear that the average American bra size is rising. Lingerie makers, though, haven't kept pace with the demand for cute, supportive underthings that run larger than a C cup. Enter Jenette Bras, which is just about to open at 4308 Melrose Avenue in East Hollywood.
Owner Jenette Goldstein plans to carry sizes D through K, mostly from European brands like Panache, Freya, Fantasie, and Anita Rosa Faia, in both regular and nursing varieties. She'll also have a healthy selection of slips, panties, and other undergarments, and she'll custom-order more complicated trappings if you need something that can go under a strapless wedding gown or halter prom dress. Nice touch: Male consorts can wait in the gentlemen's lounge, which comes equipped with vintage lady magazines like Gent and High Life, while their companions get outfitted.
