If you're plagued by bra-fitting nightmares in which a woman who is not related to you fights her way into your dressing room and chastises you mercilessly, telling you the size you have chosen is wrong, all wrong, La Petite Coquette is the lingerie store for you. Frilly and feminine but also irreverent and definitely not conservative—they sell "good girl/bad girl" feather spankers and an array of vibrating massagers along with a healthy selection of bras, panties, sleepwear, hosiery, and other undergarments—the store is almost as pleasant to wait in (relax on one of the plush settees) while your friend shops for her bridal trousseau as it is to actually buy things for yourself. Prices range widely at the Victorian-salon-styled shop, whose owners have more than 30 years experience in the business, and while the stock is not cheap, there are plenty of sales both online and in-store. There are also loads of stylish offerings with support for the curvier girl, oft ignored at mass-market stores. Possibly best of all, the website offers some practical (and helpful) tips for men shopping for their ladies. Ce n'est pas à l'amour? 51 University Place, 212-473-2478, thelittleflirt.com (10003)
