Best Lingerie San Francisco 2004 - Les Cent Culottes
Once you've gone French in the lingerie department, it's hard to go back to run-of-the-mill, department-store bras and panties. Sophie Boudet, a former chef from Paris, recognized the hole in the market when she couldn't find the high-quality lingerie so common in her native France, and there's no sexier lingerie shop in the city than her Les Cent Culottes. There are wonderfully intricate tulle and lace bras and matching thong underwear by the likes of Aubade, Simone Perele, and Princesse Tam Tam. The shop also stocks corsets, garters, and pantyhose that are perfect for the bride- to-be. Listen up, gentlemen: This is the perfect shop to get your sweetie a little something you can both benefit from.
