Recently, the pics above swept by as I skimmed through my Instagram feed. I was instantly besotted. They’re from an LA-based line called For Love and Lemons (an appropriate name, as the gossamer-thin bras are most certainly not made for those of us endowed with more melon-sized chests).
The lacy, cheekily revealing lingerie is ultra-sexy, but in a beautiful, couture-like way. Scalloped chantilly lace brushes against an upper thigh; a bra’s cups consist of nothing more than two strategically placed lace appliqués and nude illusion tulle.
You can find For Love and Lemons at The Geisha House in Old City (149 North 3rd Street), which stocks the line's bras, underwear, boy shorts and robes. See what the shop carries below, and then invest in some seriously gorgeous skivvies. While you're at it, shop the boutique's regular collection: From now through July 5th, everything red, white or blue is 20 percent off (this excludes sale merch and For Love and Lemons, though several of the styles they carry are already marked down—I've noted these below!).
Bat Your Lashes set bra, $121, and matching panty, now on sale for $37 (comes in black, chartreuse and white). Keep in mind: These run very small.
My personal favorite: Fleur bra, $75, and matching thong, $40 (available in coral and white).
Anastasia bra, $77 (available in purple and white).
Ultra-thin straps look awesome peeking out from beneath a tank. Slinky bralette, now on sale for $37 (available in royal blue and mint green).
Sporty boyshorts, on sale for $37 (available in royal blue).
Sporty Crop bralette, $63 (available in black).
