The Best Bras
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly

For all those "personal things" that go underneath the finished product, head uptown to Intimacy on Madison and 90th Street. Smashingly sexy (and supportive) bras, seductive undies, and everything else that is hidden under your jeans or jumper -- it's all here, in this cozy shop with the pretty peach walls. It's not just that the staff know how to fit a bra properly (and they should, considering that they carry bras with cup sizes ranging from A to JJ), but they know how to do it discreetly, politely, with care. (We especially like Evanny, who fit us for our latest little lacy something.) There are brand names here you know, like La Perla and Felina, but mostly there are fabulous European imports that you don't know, and that you won't see anyone else in, especially when you're at the gym changing into your sweats -- names like Lise Charmel, Prima Donna, Chantelle, and Aubade. And even better, these are brands that a certain someone (with a Y chromosome) hasn't seen yet, either. Nothing here comes cheap, but everything is oh-so-worth it. Forget those ancient ads, "Last night I dreamed I was a whatever in my Maidenform bra..." and actually be a whatever-you-want in the finery and fabulousness sold here. Intimacy, 1252 Madison Ave. at 90 St., 212-860-8366; www.myintimacy.com
