$56 bra, $20 thong
La Petite Coquette has supplied me with an enormous variety of underpinnings for years, so I wanted to check out their current stock. I discovered that the maker of my very favorite low-rise thong, Hanky Panky, now makes bras. I picked out a cheerful cherry-red one that was very comfortable and lacy, but it was high-cut and offered too much coverage for my chest. It was better suited for the more voluptuous ladies among us. The thong, however, was perfect for everyone. La Petite Coquette, 51 University Pl., nr. 10th St.; 212-473-2478.
