$39 bra, $29 panty
Sleep in Williamsburg regularly stocks Belabumbum, a great brand with a silly name that I’ve liked for years. This cotton set was a light hospital blue with white trim and small, embroidered butterflies. The bra fit great and would be perfect for everyday, but the boy shorts had elastic on the legs and were too puffy to be worn underneath anything. They looked more like a diaper than cute lingerie. Sadly, there was no brief or thong that matched the bra. Sleep, 110 N. 6th St., nr. Berry St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 718-384-3211.
