Well? How does the most well known chain stack up?

These last two weeks, I have done the “Lingerie Sales Test”: I visit various lingerie stores, as a 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 the service stacks up. Mandatory stop: Victoria’s Secret. I visited two flagship two-story stores: the Lincoln Center and Herald Square location. Inside, a dozen of different styles await, from young (and budget) to figure-shaping underwear to beauty products. At the Lincoln Center branch, the saleslady urged me to feel free to ask questions or go upstairs to view more. While I did not make a sale, I would come back soon. On visiting the 34th street location, while pursuing perfect “Pink” panties, the salespeople helped to find my girlfriend’s size and happily explained the intricacies of v-string vs thong vs boyshort etc. At the cash register, the smiling Asian cashier sympathized with my valiant underwear shopping duties. While the goods are neither unique nor “fine lingerie” like in other stores, the undergarment diversity and reasonable prices will keep both ladies and courageous guys alike in the stores. Feel free to read my other reviews along my Uncovering-Undies search!

The New York stores have a better selection than the store in Philadelphia. You can see some of the things that do not come to the smaller stores in Philadelphia. I especially like 57th & Madison, Lincoln Center Store, & the 72nd & Lexington St store.

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.
