Best of Boston

2006 Best Lingerie

French Dressing

Parisians have always been experts in intimate indulgences and alluring unmentionables. This petite spot brings both to notoriously reserved Beacon Hill. The elegant, playful shop—dressed up with overstuffed chairs and a sparkling chandelier—has an extensive inventory of both naughty and nice lingerie, as well as loungewear from designers Cosabella and Aubade.
