Hidden in a suburban corner of Brooklyn, family-owned Olga’s has been in the lingerie business since 1970. Specializing in mastectomy fittings, Olga’s offers a wide range of silicone breast forms, breast enhancers, and surgical bras. The lingerie tends toward the conservative: Bras and panties by quality French brands Chantelle and Simon Pérèle, inexpensive bridal corsets, and minimizers from Wacoal and Edith Lance dominate the landscape. Naturally, their generous assortment of swimwear, sizes 8 through 32, is equally modest. Carol Wior control bathing suits, skirted bottoms, tankinis, and long-torso one-pieces are stocked year-round for the cruising set. If you don’t feel like taking the Q out to Avenue M, the Olga’s Website promotes a price guarantee and free nationwide shipping.Sales
