Best of Boston

2007 Best Lingerie

French Dressing

The sheer variety of intimates from Aubade, Eberjey, Cosabella, Skin, and Hanky Panky (still the most comfy thongs around) that you’ll discover at this pretty, boudoir-size boutique, discreetly located in the flat of Beacon Hill, would be enough to set it apart from the competition. It’s the honest, practical, and rather sweet caretaking by proprietress Brenna Graham, though, that’s truly prizewinning. If you bring in your gauziest blouses and slinkiest dresses, she’ll even help you avoid a Tara Reid moment by assisting you in choosing the appropriate underpinnings.
