If you subscribe to the philosophy of this Austrian hosiery brand, stockings and lingerie are as much luxuries as necessities. Considered by some as the Rolls Royce of underpinnings, Wolford’s name is synonymous with quality; the line is also famous for its unusual patterns, top-notch construction and durability. Bras—with straps that can be twisted and tied—and seamless panties are virtually invisible when worn underneath a body hugging dress, while white string bodysuits with sheer collars add a bit of secret seductiveness when worn under business suits. Pick-up crystal-adorned tights to add sparkle to holiday outfits, or colorful tanks for just cruising around town. Like their products, the stores are simply designed and demure, while the lingerie-clad mannequins are contorted into the kind of acrobatic positions that make many passersby blush. Sales associates will pull out as many samples as you might need from the drawers that line the walls of the boutiques.


Stock-up on sexy hosiery and lingerie during the twice-a-year major sales in January and June.
