This popular boutique carries sexy high-end lingerie, swimsuits, loungewear, and hosiery from famous European makers and its own sharp, stylish line. The helpful and knowledgeable salespeople make this a favorite source for Valentine's and bridal-shower gifts. Unbelievable sales.
The girlie-girl’s favorite lingerie shop carries corsets, bras, and panties in mesh, lace, silk-satin brocade, and microfiber, plus all sorts of pretty garments from up-and-coming designers like Modern Courtesan. Styles can be altered to fit—a service master fitter Rebecca Apsan (check out her book, The Lingerie Handbook) performs with ease. Corsets are $100 to $500.
