So I made sure to scour the city for those wanting that little bit extra.
If you enjoyed reading part one of lingerie shopping in New York then get ready for part two. I don’t know about you but I’d much rather read a split post instead of one super long post. I’m just not a fan of scrolling down on a really long blog post and getting lost. So here we are continuing my lingerie adventures in Manhattan. The one thing I did notice about the U.S lingerie market was there is definitely a lot of “basics” black and beige plain t-shirt style bras which is not my thing. These spots offer something for anyone wanting that little bit extra.
Sugar Cookies Lingerie
Come here if you’re looking for your classic french labels such as Aubade, Lise Charmel or Simone Pérèle. They also stock a few local brands. Bonus points for having a store pup!
MAP – 122 W 20th St, New York, NY 10011. Closest Subway – 18 St station (1)
La Petite Coquette
Make sure you pop by this cute little boutique. It’s been around for forty years and they like to keep it old school by not having an online store. They have your usual European favs as well as some KissKill, Marlies Dekkers, Bully Boy, Cadolle and a few local brands.

I visited most of the department stores in Manhattan and here are the only two worth a visit in my opinion. Most of the department stores will stock your standard brands Simone Perele, Natori, Chantelle but the below have a little extra.
Saks Fifth Avenue
Go to Saks if you’re looking for silk!
They had such a lovely selection of slips, sleepwear and robes. Some of my favourite brands here were Gilda & Pearl, Christine, Ginia and La Perla. It was oh so pretty, I definitely need new loungewear.

I think I would have skipped Bergdorfs if it wasn’t for the Catherine D’lish gowns in the Christmas window displays. But to my surprise, there was a nice selection of lingerie with some cute things by Coco de Mer, I.D Sarrieri and Myla.
MAP – 754 5th Ave, New York, NY 10019. Closest subway – 5 Avenue station (N, R, W)
I hope you’ve found my guide helpful and I’m really glad I got to share lingerie shopping in New York with you!
