Inspired by a gorgeous lingerie set we spied online — available at Scoop NYC in Highland Park Village, if you must know — we embarked on an all-out search for comparable sets at other local lingerie shops. Althouth there are few intimates-only stores around Dallas, the following five, born here or imported, help satisfy our need for both pretty and practical underthings.
The internationally renowned lingerie brand opens its first Texas store at NorthPark Center this month. Whether you want to spice things up in the bedroom or turn heads at the beach, you can find something here. Salespeople wear iconic pink house coats designed by British designer Vivienne Westwood, and they are ready to help you find something that makes you look and feel your sexiest.
A one-stop lingerie shop in Plano, Loretta’s Intimates carries an assortment of lingerie, bridal wear and swimsuits. Lines include Nanette Lepore, Wacoal, Yummie Tummie and Natori. Taking boudior photos? No problem: This shop has an expansive selection of outfits to ensure you’re ready for your close-up.
The Maddox Shop
This East Dallas mainstay has been outfitting women with quality intimate apparel since 1934. Maddox Shop caters to all body types — cup sizes up to N and bands up to 54 inches — with fashion, bridal, mastectomy, nursing, beginner and sports bras, as well as underwear, shapers, swimwear and lingerie. This is the place to go if you need a custom-sized piece of lingerie that you can’t find in a standard store. Bonus: onsite alterations.
Despite its prestigious location on the edge of Highland Park, owner Nasrin Hormozi could not be more down to earth, and there is no better person in town to help find a bra that fits. Shop for a variety of bras, panties, sleepwear, hosiery and more. Brands we love include Damaris, Chantelle, La Perla, Simone Perele, Argentovivo and Huit. Trousseau offers bras in sizes 30A to 42G, as well as everything you could possibly need to pull off a sexy bedroom look.
International favorite Wolford has been providing quality hosiery and lingerie for decades, and we are fortunate to have a standalone boutique at NorthPark Center. Wolford meets the need for practical yet beautiful lingerie that smooths you out in all the right places. (Girl, we all need a little help.) Expect lots of black, white and nude and excellent customer service.
