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.

We are of the opinion that every day is worthy of some pretty lil' lingerie, so to aid your Valentine's night wardrobe and beyond we mapped some of Boston's top intimates specialists. These shops will happily walk you through frills, lace, and straps to ensure the ultimate fit from sumptious Italian garters to simple T-shirt bras.

Forty Winks

Copy Link
We've professed our love for Forty Winks explicitly and often. This Harvard Square boutique carries all the pieces for a girly boudoir getup from brands like Mimi Holliday and Eberjey. Hard-to-find bra sizes are also stocked here for ladies of all shapes.

Sedurre

Sedurre—meaning "to seduce" in Italian—is North End gem full of accessibly priced underwear from Cosabella, Betsey Johnson, and Hanky Panky. The shop also has a nice bridal selection.

KM Hudson

Copy Link
This Boston outpost of the Mashpee-based company is staffed by the owner herself, Katherine Hudson. Dark wood floors and Persian rugs set an inviting tone for a bra fitting.

La Perla

Copy Link
La Perla boasts the creme de la creme of lingerie. We're talking high end wearables from the likes of Marchesa, Baronessa, and Shanghai San. Decadence lives here.

Agent Provocateur

Copy Link
Alongside its buddy La Perla, Agent Provocateur proves that there is nothing more luxurious than high fashion nobody can see. Save the wears coming out of this lingerie leader for the bedroom. Spending hundreds on intimates here includes champagne and chocolates (kind of like a date).

INTIMACY of Boston

Copy Link
This chain is highly regarded for carrying an insane amount of bra sizes (90!), which they are experienced in matching to your own bosom. Alterations are offered, meaning this is the closest you'll get to a custom everyday bra.
