Having recently moved back to the neighborhood, I was in desperate need of new bras. My basic La Perla that I had worn and loved literally all over the world (and that I had purchased at La Petite Coquette in college four years prior) were literally busting at the seams. Entering LPC is like traveling back in time to a bohemian, Parisian boudoir. You can't help but feel girly and sensual amongst all of the pink satin and delicate lace and I knew I was in for more then just retail therapy once I stated talking to the sales assistants.
Sadly, the La Perla I loved and wore is no longer being produced, but Sherry, one of the sales assistants who is extremely kind and patient consoled me and spent time assessing my bust needs before giving me an array of bras to try on. She even inquired about my wardrobe at home and what I like to do/who I am as a person while adjusting and fitting me.
The New York Minute in non-existent in this gem of a boutique as I spent over two hours getting new bras! Rebecca, the owner of the store even popped into my room and spent some time helping curate the selection that I had chosen. Both Sherry and Rebecca were honest about the bras they didn't like, which is so refreshing in the retail world. I ended up leaving not only with four new bras that give me shape, form, and confidence, but the feeling that I had been reacquainted with a dear friend whom I would be seeing much more of in the near future.
The ONLY place to buy lingerie... – This place is simply the best. Highest quality, best service, wonderful environment. Rebecca herself helped me and I left the store feeling like a whole new woman. Seriously, if you want quality over quantity, this is the place to shop!
Get a Bra that actually fits! – My wife and I stumbled upon La Petite Coquette and she asked for some help with bra sizing. The assistant instantly assessed my wife's size by eye, correctly, first time! She whisked her away to the fitting room and came back a few minutes later with choices all made.
I got to sit on the nice chaise longue and twiddle my thumbs.
This is the first time in her life that my 34 year old wife has actually had bras that fit her properly. Everybody is happy.
best place for your girls! – i love La Petite Coquette. tired of spending money on ill fitting bras, i decided to venture into here after reading some celebrity reviews. 5 years later, i'm still a loyal customer. you cannot beat the knowledge of the staff about getting the right bra, especially for me, being large chested. i have left manhattan and still come into the city to buy bras from La Petite Coquette. this place should be an institution for women!
Best Lingerie in the City – I work as a stylist and this store is the only place I go to pull lingerie for editorial shoots. They have the most amazing selection and the girls are lovely. Hands down the best place in the city for beautiful lingerie.
love love love it here – I love this store. I have been shopping here for years and will continue to do so based on the excellent service I receive, the wide range of brands/price points in the store and the awesome sales and fun toys they have. The store has a downtown feel, meaning not snooty, for example my dog is always welcome. The girls that work in the store literally run around to get you the proper size, make sure you have the proper fit, etc. Highly recommend this store - also awesome for shower presents, birthday presents or just something nice for yourself:)
the best lingerie – I always look forward to the annual sale at La Petite Coquette (this time in Aug), but I must admit I do shop there and pay regular prices too!
Pretty lingerie is one of my favorite things and they have the best selection!!! believe me, I have looked around.
I also love this shop because it has been in the neighborhood forever, it's small and "intimate", they really appreciate your business. The service is kind and gentle. Whenever I shop there I feel like I am visiting a friend who is so glad to see me, it's fun.
The *Only* Place I Purchase Bras Now – At this point, a trip to La Petite Coquette is a semi annual pilgrimage to stock up on all necessary unmentionables. I'm consistently blown away by the knowledge, attention, and care of the staff. Sheri assisted me yesterday and gave great critique of each bra I tried on regarding look, comfort, and fit. She listened to exactly what I was looking for (something pretty yet functional with not too much padding and in the $50 price range). Bra shopping used to be one of the more frustrating experiences of my life, but now I relish each trip and am always excited when I leave.
Also super impressed with the selection of budget friendly bras that actually last/continually look good. The four bras I bought last year and have been wearing exclusively are holding up rather well. The secret is the lingerie wash they sell at the counter AND expert advice on how to wash/take care of the unmentionables.
I consistently recommend La Petite Coquette to my ladyfriends in need of a proper fit.
Uplifting...simply a wonderful shop – Everytime I visit I feel as though I am spending time in a friends apartment. I always leave happy with a list of what I want to come back and buy on my next visit. The staff is helpful with suggestions. They are honest and truly aren't trying to sell you something that doesn't look good or fit right. You must check out their pretty drawer(s). It is not to be missed. I always leave feeling very feminine and find myself calling at least one friend telling them they must go Immediately and then calling my husband teasing him with something fabulous I just bought. Truly worth a visit I guarantee you won't be sorry. Enjoy!!! I know I will when I go back again...and again...and again...
Fun, Fabulous and Sexy! – Many thanks to Jeanine and Rebecca at La Petite Coquette...I always find something pretty to take home and that always makes a girl feel special. There's nothing worse than wanting to buy something pretty for yourself and leaving empty handed. I make a point of stopping buy La Petite Coquette every time I am in NYC...I always leave with something fabulous and sexy for myself. The staff go out of there way to actually listen and fit you properly. Not to mention they have a fabulous selection of Hanky Pankys! Ladies if you don't have a pair make your way there and stock you pantie drawer! The most comfortable and sexy underwear you will ever put on. They are seamless, COMFORTABLE and sexy all at the same time.
The only sad thing about this store is that there's isn't one in Vancouver. But it's such a luscious treat to stop by when I make my way to New York... Looking forward to stopping in sooner than later.
