Can't get enough!!!!!!!

I absolutely adore this store!!! I can not not go into the city without steeping into the "Little Flirt." I am one who is very passionate about lingerie, and if anyone else feels the same, then this is your kind of store. The sales' ladies are as sweet as the store name; providing any type of lacy intimate that suites your desire. Lots of pink, deep reds, and perl whites cover the store giving off a suductive feeling making it hard not to get you in the mood. La Petite Coquette is a one-of-a-kind-store like no other. This is by far the best lingerie store EVER!!!!! Just can't get enough!

Clearly One of the Best in Manhattan

These last two weeks, I have done the “Lingerie Sales Test”: I visit various NYC fine lingerie stores, as a well-dressed suit-wearing young Asian business professional. While looking for a little something to make my girlfriend feel like a million bucks, I check out how their service treatment racks up. I ended up at La Petite Coquette, where it was moderately busy. After looking around (the most intimate and sexy décor of any store by far) and asking for a little help, I was kindly assisted by Naoko. My salesperson did not hesitate to help me find the perfect set and size among all combinations of different makes and styles, from demi to full covered, from lace to cotton prints. She fully respected me as a gentleman and made me feel completely comfortable and well informed during the whole transaction. I was happy to drop two-large on a beautiful La Perla black mesh lace set because of Naoko’s help. After doing this “lingerie sales test,” I not only had an appreciation for the store, but a delighted girlfriend. I will surely be coming back soon! Feel free to read my other reviews along my Uncovering-Undies search.

"Don't be intimidated by its decor"

By looking at the window displays, one would never imagine that a simple gal like myself would ever be able to afford anything in this sassy, refined boutique. One day I got up enough nerve to come in and I was in for a treat. Not only was the staff super friendly and very helpful but a huge blowout sale was taken place at that moment. If I told you the deals that I got, no one would ever believe me. I would definitely go back there again. I heard their website is on the verge of launching. If it is anything like what I experienced, I will be hooked on it as well. Thanks to all the 'Coquettes' that made my experience so wonderful.

I loved this store.When you spend all day with small children, getting dirty, cleaning up messes, etc., you need to feel like a sexy woman underneath. This store fills that nitch.Yes, it is expensive but worth every penny.It is worth the trip into the city.Nothing boosts your body image better than a sexy bra under "Mommy-Wear".LOVE IT!!!!

Bra selection in larger cups

I was so pleased to find a store that sells bras in the GH cups for smaller sized women around. When I tried on one bra, the salesperson said that I would need a larger cup size, and I inwardly groaned because I figured that meant they didn't have it. But no, going from G to H was no problem for this store. The service was great. Problem: can I convince them to carry size xtra large in slips, sleepwear, etc? And perhaps to carry Goddess bras, which are so beautiful and also the best support I have ever owned?

La Petite Coquette is such a wonderful store, it has made me enjoy buying bras and underwear. The staff treat you like you're an old friend that you don't even mind spending a little more than you expected. Also, they are very dog friendly, as I brought my energetic puppy in the store and they showered her with attention and love while I was trying on. This place should be a must for all women.
