In Her Drawers

7.2.2014

A neat lingerie drawer is as much about sanity as vanity.

If you’re like most women, we bet your lingerie drawers resemble a tangled wad of straps stuck together like cold spaghetti left in the pot. It’s enough to make you crazy…or think you are! Besides the pretty picture a drawer full of carefully arranged lingerie presents, you’ll feel much more together if you know where to quickly find what you’re looking for. So, ladies may we suggest that you begin by disposing of lingerie that has outstayed its welcome. Then find a way to organize your stuff depending on your personal style. Think what you wear, how you get dressed, and what it is that slows you down when you’re racing around trying to get out the door. The other factor is space-something no woman has enough of, so think about what drawers to empty or bringing in some beautifully lined boxes.

Quick Guideline To Follow:

  1. Separate bras, panties, and al other categories into their own piles.
  2. Think inside the box-use drawer dividers and or bring in some beautifully lined boxes.
  3. Make it smell sweet-don’t forget to always have sweet smelling sachets in your drawers.
  4. Know how to fold’em!

Remember reaching into your underwear drawers is one of the first experiences you have each day. There’s no need for it to be a struggle.

If These Walls Could Talk!

6.24.2014

Over the years women have shared with us many reasons for their lingerie purchases. The intimate boudoir setting at our store, the giddiness of all the silk and lace, and the slumber party atmosphere make people drop their drawers, so to speak, discussing topics not ordinarily shared between strangers. There are so many reasons why women buy lingerie: first date, falling in love, getting married, getting divorced, having an affair, loosing weight, makeover, new boobs and the list goes on. Whatever the reason is one of the key benefits of lingerie is the ability to let you reinvent yourself. When women buy lingerie they are usually thinking only about their physical appearance-how to boost this or show that-but lingerie’s power to transform from the inside is what often makes the difference.

Divided Issue

4.11.2014

Summertime is here and the ladies of New York City have a special request for bras that will give them a fuller bosom AKA cleavage.

Let’s face it ladies, the valley can’t exist without the hills. And having cleavage requires a certain amount of material to work with. You simply can’t have natural cleavage with A cup – you need at least a B. But big breasts don’t guarantee cleft. It depends on the position of your breasts on your chest, since  cleavage demands that your breasts be pushed together. Even plastic surgery cannot create cleavage. The good news is, cleavage can be a happy side effect of, you guessed it, wearing the right bra: a plunge bra that has crescent-shaped padding inside the cup or on the side to push the breasts into the center for the desired decollete.

For an exaggerated lift try the Gossard  bras from the UK!

Lingerie…The Topping On A Dessert

4.5.2014

It is not the substance, not the person, the relationship, or the sex itself, but the whipped cream, the delicious extra bonus that makes it special. A man may never ask you to wear lingerie, but we can guarantee he’ll be thrilled if you do. No one likes to ask for flowers, but it’s always nice to get some.

Men who are familiar with lingerie will tell you that lingerie is HOT! But men unfamiliar with lingerie’s charms may say, what’s the point, they’re perfectly happy with nakedness. That’s like saying what’s the point of foreplay when you can get right to it!

It’s a way to tempt your lover when you don’t know what to say, it’s all whispered in one word; that word is …Lingerie.

The Garter Belt

What is the mystique about the garter belt? Maybe it’s that, for practical purposes, garter belts are obsolete; they exist only for pleasure-a symbol of sexiness from an era when an above-the-knee glimpse could still elevate a guy’s pulse.

When women come to our boutique, and they really want to heat things up in the bedroom, they ask for anything with garters. Why? Garter belts are a little bit daring – something different, not everyday.  A garter belt is when you want to put “access” back in accessories. believe us something a little out of the ordinary can make an extraordinary difference.

What’s your take on the garter belt?

The Little Flirt

Where’s Your Flirt?

When a woman comes to our boutique and says, “I am not the type for lingerie,” we say, “There is no type.” Because, put simply, our philosophy is, Dress in a way that would make someone want to undress you. Even if that someone only exists in your imagination. We mean it!! Rather than hiding yourself, take what you’ve got and work it. The excuse that it’s not your thing  just doesn’t work with us; there are simply too many styles to choose from.

The point is lingerie is supposed to make you feel fabulous however you define it. You can never tell what type of a woman is wearing what underneath. Let the adventure begin.
