Shopped at this boutique for holiday gifts. They had beautiful merchandise and very well priced. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and gave me the best bra fitting I've ever had. I've told all my friends about this little lingerie

Pros: Nice Bras

Cons: Too small a store

Glad to see that it's not just me who has been treated badly by the owner! I went in a few years ago with my friend, and the owner kicked us out exclaiming "Out out out! We're closing for inventory! Out out!" and then she proceeded to literally shoo us out the door...all the while, the poor young girl behind the counter looked shocked and embarassed. Really!? Closing for inventory during prime business hours?! That doesn't seem logical, especially since we walked by 15 minutes later and there was no sign of inventory being taken. She is nuts. Absolutely insane. There are plenty of other lingerie boutiques on the Upper West Side. Go to one of them instead!

I walked in to buy lingerie, or at least a gift certificate, for my girlfriend who lives around the corner. I always like to help out a neighborhood shop and appreciate the personal service one usually gets in a small store. The woman, who identified herself as the owner, was the rudest, looniest person I have met in a store. She was, for no reason at all, insulting - even vulgar. I'm almost always a fan of local stores, but I can't wait to see this one inevitably close.

Pros: The window displays are tastefully arranged.

Cons: The owner is bezerk!

I was attracted to this shop by its pretty window display. Preferring local shops to big department stores, I was hopeful to have this be my new lingerie shop. I will now never ever step foot in that store again.

The woman who owns the shop is the rudest woman I've ever met. On my first visit, she made rude comments about my body (!). Thinking maybe she had a bad day, I tried again, and she harrangued me while I shopped and suggested that, when I said she was standing rather close to me (5 inches!) I not bother returning! And I had two bras in my hand I was ready to buy! She said this with such crazy agression I found it quite disturbing. Her staff looked definitely alarmed at her behavoir on both accounts.

My husband, without my knowing, also tried to purchase something for me at the shop, and she was intolerably rude to him as well, ultimately yelling at him to get out of the store.

What a shame. Great looking merchandise but the woman who owns and works in the shop needs psychiatric care -- she's frightening. Go elsewhere for your intimate apparel. It's amazing she's still in business.

The woman who sold me the bra and underwear was too pushy. She did carry my line of underwear but she wouldn't let me examine them. She said she doesn't like people touching her merchandise. I felt uncomfortable but just wanted to get out of there. When I got the items home I was disgusted to find the underwear had been worn before. I had never seen anything so gross. When I called to tell her about the situation she accused ME of making the stain and would not take them back. She has nerve to charge $54 for a used pair of stained undergarments.

The owner is a nasty woman. Will not sell to you if she doesn't like how you dress. Never go into that store. She kicked out a young woman because she said she didn't think the woman could afford her lingerie. I don't know why she thought that, just because she was wearing sweats and sneakers. I spoke with the woman after and she was so upset she was thrown out and told her business was not wanted. Turns out the woman is the daughter of a VERY wealthy and famous music producer. Jokes on the owner!

This is a great place to get daily use lingerie and sleepwear. They have an extensive, though kind of hard to find without help, selection of different brands of bras and underwear. I didn't really look much at the sleepwear. This really isn't a place to browse though. I often go in there needing a certain bra for a dress or I want to try to find a new bra for every day use and they help me find exactly what I want/need. I suggest talking to the staff, they are really nice, approachable, knowledgable and patient.

Pros: Knowledgable, patient staff, great selection

Cons: often gets crowded, small dressing rooms (only 2), hard to browse because so much is stacked on top of each other

The stuff in the window is always so interesting and attractive, it invites you to go in. They have beautiful and out of the ordinary lingerie sets, but you pay up.
