Best Lingerie

  • Cosabella

    220 Lafayette St., nr. Spring St.; 212-405-1190

    While Victoria’s Secret has perfected the mass Lolita look and Agent Provocateur is the go-to store for kinky role-play, Cosabella is the place for colorful, sexy lingerie for both special occasions and—this is the twist—comfort under your clothes. Though the shop has va-va-voom styles, soft-body bras designed to enhance your shape without excessive padding are its specialty. Likewise, bottoms range from low-rider thongs to lacy boy-shorts. Spacious, flatteringly lit fitting rooms and an obliging staff minimize awkwardness during try-on time. This is the rare underthings shop that both you and your partner will love.
