Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Valentine's Day is around the corner and whether you're a believer in the holiday or not, it does provide an excellent excuse to buy some new lingerie (even if it's for your eyes only). We've mapped out a guide for the best underpinnings found in the city.—Christine Mitchell

Boston, MA 02116
(617) 262-0545
Visit Website
Anthropologie is known for its curation of unique brands that are both feminine and fun. The same goes for their selection of intimate apparel. From colorblocked pieces by Claudette to flirty lace from Maison Lejaby, intimates here are anything but predictable. [Photo: Christine Mitchell]

Boston, MA 02115
(617) 236-1636
Visit Website
If you have a minimalist approach to your undergarments, American Apparel is your best bet. Channel your inner gymnast with a stretch floral lace bodysuit or keep it cheeky with fishnet stockings and a garter belt. Just because American Apparel is simple, doesn’t mean they are short on options. [Photo: Christine Mitchell]

Boston, MA 02116
(617) 236-5070
Visit Website
Not just a shop for hosiery, Wolford has a selection of sophisticated bras, panties, and lingerie. And for the lady looking for a little extra support and contour, they have deceptively sexy shapewear pieces. [Photo: Christine Mitchell]

9. Intimacy

100 Huntington Avenue
Boston, MA 02116
(857) 277-7887
Visit Website
For the lady in need of a custom fitting, Intimacy is the answer. With over 90 bra sizes you’re bound to find the “glass slipper” for your bosom. And if it’s not just right, they offer alterations. [Photo]

Boston, MA 02118

L'Ecole Nuit opened its brick and mortar this summer in the South End. And chéri, aren’t we glad it did. The shop is cheeky and seductive with a fine selection of European lingerie and a variety of other boudoir necessities. [Photo: Courtesy]
