Sexy bras for everyone, what a CONCEPT.
The Rack Shop, an indie store in Bushwick, Brooklyn sells bras for bustier women. BEFORE you start, no not up to a double D. The range goes from 28A to 38HH. They do bright solid lingerie sets, bodices with retro style patterns, and spring-y silky sleepwear. There’s plenty of new collections from indie designers. Expect Tutti Rouge, Love Claudette, Little Bra Company, Bucketfeet, Gossard, Supra, Bijoux Indescrets, and Pretty Polly. Check them out if you’re not in New York. And best of all, they do sneakers, the most practical of all things that always fit too. (You’ll find a solid selection of high-top trainers, and slides, and shoes that light up.) So basically, you could potentially waltz in naked and walk out with an entire outfit if you’re cool with Rihanna’s silk sleepwear and sneaks combo. RunwayRiot will be visiting soon.
Try not to basically give birth over founder Laura Henny’s story her story:
I had cup DD when I was 14 years old and there was one thing that I hated about bra shopping, that was the feeling I had after I came back from bra shopping: insecure, weird and big. Coming home with a bra that could be my grandmothers because they simply didn’t have anything else and then the voice of the lady’s that would help me : “no darling, of course we don’t have that cute bra in your size.”
Getting somewhere, one snappy little hot pink set at a time.
