local lingerie stores

Lingerie shopping is nothing short of a pleasure, which it’s so very important that you find a store that you adore. But with so much choice out there, where should you start? Here is some much-needed advice to help you with just that!

Check out the stores in your area

Okay, the first step here is pretty obvious. You need to figure out what stores there are in your local area. Whether you’ve just moved to a new place or been in the same one since as long as you can remember, this is a useful thing to do.

You can use our store locator to find out which lingerie boutiques are near you. It could be quite enlightening – you may come across some that you had no idea existed. Once you know what’s out there, it’s time to delve a little deeper and find out what each store has to offer you. There are, of course, a whole load of different ways in which you can do this.

Ask your friends and family for recommendations

You may never have asked your friends where they buy their lingerie, but why on earth not? It doesn’t have to be an awkward conversation. In fact, this is something that we should all be able to talk about openly. The women in your life may have all the answers you need.

Since they all need to get stunning lingerie pieces too, they are a great place to start. Why not ask around and see whether there’s anyone out there who has a favorite store that they would like to recommend? That way, you will figure out the best place to go without having to do any of the hard work! Bonus.

Read some helpful reviews online

Never underestimate the value of reviews. When people have a retail experience that they love or, indeed, hate, they want to tell the world all about it. Luckily, the internet is rife with places where they can have their say and let just about everyone out there know what they think. That’s good news for you because it means that you can get a sneak peek at their opinions in no time at all.

So, where should you start? Well, you may just want to Google the names of stores in your areas and see what comes up. You could find that there are reviews that are easily searchable. If that doesn’t fetch you any results, why not just go to their Facebook page? Customers can ‘rate’ stores and retailers on the social media platform, which means that you may find some reliable consumer advice there too.

Look for a store with a wide size range

Of course, one of your biggest concerns will likely be whether the store has your size. Many boutiques have a broad range so it’s worth making sure that you find the right one. When you do visit the stores, take a look at the various sizes they have and what ranges they have on offer. That way, you should be able to figure out if it’s the right place for you to shop or not.

Needless to say, smaller stores may lack the entire range all of the time. If that’s the case, though, you shouldn’t be disheartened. Instead, speak to one of the staff members and ask them just what they have. You may find that, even if they don’t have your particular size, they can order it in for you especially. This should be the level of care and support you get in small, boutique retailers.  

Visit each store for a fitting

When you’ve got a few stores in mind, there’s another thing that you should do. Go ahead and book yourself in for a fitting. It may sound odd but having this experience in a store will help you decide if it’s the right one for you. This is something that you should be doing on a regular basis anyway so it won’t hurt to go ahead and get measured again. At least that way, you will know that you’re getting the right size.

What’s more, during the fitting, you will get an idea of how the store operates and what level of service you can expect. You can engage with your fitter and ask them questions about lingerie, style, and anything else in between. Be sure to take the chance to do just that and you may learn a whole lot along the way.

Take note of how the staff treats you

Finally, you should take note of how each staff member treats you and how you feel. When you’re buying something as crucial as lingerie, you need to make sure that you feel comfortable at all times. The staff members play a pretty major role in just that. If you don’t feel happy with how you are treated in the store, the chances are that it’s not the place for you. If, on the other hand, you feel respected and well looked after, you may be onto a winner.

The quest to find a great lingerie store where you feel secure and happy needn’t be a long one. Once you’ve followed the advice here, you should find that nothing is easier! Before you know it, you will have your favorite store and even know the staff by name too.
