Our Three Favorite Places to Buy “Unmentionables” in Paris

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Paris is known for many things; Baguettes, the Eiffel Tower, Moulin Rouge, escargot and yes….lingerie.  Parisian women take their ”unmentionables” very seriously.   While they may hold onto a pair of trousers or a sweater for years, their lingerie wardrobe is kept up with fresh, sexy and stylish additions regularly.  Some of the most luxurious lingerie stores can be found in Paris, but even at the local Monoprix, the selection of underpinnings beats what can be found in the US anytime.  Discover the best of what Paris has to offer at every price range in our top 5 picks for places to buy lingerie in Paris.

1.  Galeries Lafayette is one of the fabulous department stores in Paris and lingerie heaven.  Just about every price point, style and size of undergarments can be found here.  This is where you want to go to stock up on basics.   We love the French brand Huit.

Sabbia Rosa

2.  Sabbia Rosa is located in the 6th arrondissement.  It is a tiny little shop filled to the brim with the most lovely camisoles, briefs, slips and negligees.  We put it on our radar after we read that Madonna shops here.  It can be quite expensive so we always try to budget at least one cami into our shopping list.  73 rue des Sts-Pères, 6e, Paris

Fifi Chachnil

3.  Fifi Chachnil is pure,  flirty feminine.  Ruffles, lace, bows and feathers…all things that make a woman feel and look like a goddess. The shoppe is so fun, even if you are just there to browse.  231 Rue St. Honore, 1e, Paris
