2017 Best Lingerie

Forty Winks

Yes, lingerie is sexy. But it can also be cool. And thanks to Forty Winks, there’s no need to eschew your fashion-forward sensibilities, or comfort, for the typical underwire and lace. In an elegant boutique with plush armchairs and chandeliers, owners Rachel Wentworth and Meredith Donaldson have assembled a collection of intimate apparel that fits a variety of body types and styles, from Marlies Dekkers’s trendy line of bras to Eberjey’s delicate chemises and Stella McCartney’s designer body suits. In other words, underthings so beautiful you’ll wish you didn’t have to wear anything over them.
