This totally calls for some splurging on Figleaves. I'm loving this Elle Macpherson sheer ribbons bra (regularly $55, now $27.50), but it doesn't come in a 38E, so I might spring for this Gossard daisies bra.

On a somewhat related note that I've always wondered about: How do you approach the dilemma of matching bras and panties? Some girls I know will only ever wear matched sets purchased together, whereas some are happy to wear a black lacy bra with black cotton knickers, or even (gasp!) a black bra with red panties. People on both sides of this argument seem to feel very strongly that their way is The Only Way, so I'm curious what readers of our blog think, if you're not too bashful too share.
