For years, I hated bras—a funny statement coming from the proprietor of a lingerie boutique.  My experiences bra shopping were nightmarish and traumatizing, sometimes reducing me to tears, but when you’re 17 and needing a UK 30H—a size I, like most other people, had no idea existed, the options are scarce.  I was forced to settle … Read More

LionsLair logoSubmitted by Kimberly Berger, owner of Lion’s Lair Boutique in Islamorada, Florida

I started Lion’s Lair as an airbrush artist, painting on everything from motorcycles to murals to t-shirts to swimwear.  Due to the store’s tropical location, hand painted swimwear became a very popular item.

Opening a small business is different today as compared to when my mom, Roberta, opened Dusty Rose 34 years ago, but the backbone of a mom and pop store remains unchanged.  There is more to opening a store than filling it with merchandise and waiting for shoppers to come in to … Read More

I opened Jenette Bras in 2009 in an old working-class neighborhood in Los Angeles called East Hollywood. I found a great 1920’s storefront, formerly Pak-Am Stationery (for all your Pakistani-American office supply needs) in a sort of off-center bohemian district of bike shops, junk stores and small theaters. It was cheaper than prime shopping district space … Read More

Submitted by Janice Welch, owner of Just For You Fine Lingerie in Waterloo, Ontario

I have always had a passion for lingerie from a very early age; my first set I ever bought at 18 was electric blue (it was the 80s lol) with matching garter. I dreamed of owning my own lingerie store but never in a million years thought it would be a reality.  I’m an English girl … Read More

After stumbling upon a part-time job at a lingerie boutique in 2006, I almost instantly fell in love with doing bra fittings.
