The BEST Place ever to buy Lingerie

The customer service at this store is TOP NOTCH. Natalie is amazing and she knows exactly what she is talking about all of the time and her recommendations for my girlfriend were spot on. Don't go to Macy's, come here and find what you are looking for when it comes to Sexy Lingerie.

Went in for one item came out with six! Loved it all and everyone was super nice and helpful. There are too many cute things in this store and I could barely contain myself. They carry many of my favorite brands and know pretty much everything about them. I got a proper fitting and felt so much better than when I went in. I can't wait to go back.

I was walking along Columbus Avenue and was captivated by the gorgeous and lacy lingerie pieces in the window. I walked in and everyone was so helpful and so sweet. The woman who owns this fabulous boutique took one look at me and knew my size right away. She picked out the nicest things and I wasn't horrified when I saw the prices. I asked them to please let me know when more fabulous things came in and about 2 weeks later I got the most gorgeous bra set!! I am so happy with my purchases and cant wait to go back. I love this little shop!!

Found such a wonderful selection to choose from, and excellent prices. I am the sort of person that looks for quality and fair prices. well that is exactly what I found at this small bur fully stocked boutique . I wanted some gifts for a bridal shower and they not only had what I wanted , they also gift wrapped everything beautifully @ no charge. Yes this is the lingerie store for me from now on.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
