2012 Best Lingerie

La Perla

The Italian scanties here are certain to up the ooh-la-la of your lingerie drawer. The internationally coveted line has been cherished since the ’50s for its handmade lace and embroidered details, and at the Boylston Street location you’ll find seductive and oh-so-elegant underpinnings (like bras, briefs, and boy-shorts), not to mention a bevy of sexy swimwear.
