Did you know that Victoria’s Secret was founded by a man? The guy wanted a place where men could feel comfortable shopping with their wives for lingerie. Years later, he sold the franchise rights and then jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge. Today there are over 1,000 stores and after more than 30 years, I still don’t feel comfortable walking into one of their stores (let alone walking around the mall with one of those bags). And thanks to the internet, I don’t have to.

The problem, however,  with online shopping is that you never really know what you’re going to get until it arrives and due to the “intimate nature” of intimate apparel, many online retailers (or eBay sellers) don’t take returns. As a result, I have a few small things for sale.

Check out the listings here: Photos after the jump.

Petite / teen girls pink balconet bra, by Gilly Hicks. Update, 01/28/2011

I still need reviewers for the following GH bras: Caitlyn, 34AA (pushup plunge) and Maren, 34AA (balconette – shown in photo). All bras in size 32AA are covered. See the end of this post for available colors.

Here’s the deal…
