Lingerie shopping is a funny thing, and in a metropolis like New York City, I thought you could use some help sifting through. You’ll either come across some sad spaces or places that only want to make time for you if they think you can afford all the pretty things.

My first lingerie experience in NYC was a huge mistake and I don’t know why I did it. It was like, you know when you watch a horror movie and you know you won’t be able to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night but you do it anyway? That was my first experience here. I was in the beauty department of a department store and thought I’d go check out the lingerie department. It was so sad, I was saddened that these were the only options available in such a large department store. So yeah, don’t make the mistake I did.

I’ve gone through it for you, scoured the city and listed my fav spots for lingerie in NYC.

Lingerie Shopping in New York

What I love about travelling is being able to visit small design studios and getting to try on and feel the fabric of pieces I’ll only ever be able to order online. As well as meeting the people behind the labels.

If you’re looking for a souvenir from New York then try this local designer. Their pieces are fun, feminine, handmade in small batches and are often limited edition, so you’ll be sure to take home something special. Visiting their studio is by appointment only.

Maison Close

I’ve seen a lot of Maison Close pieces being carried in other boutiques but there is nothing like visiting their flagship store. It’s definitely a lovely experience. A beautiful boutique draped in rich opulent purple velvet. Definitely not to be missed so drop by for something sexy! If you meet Samantha she’ll take great care of you.
