Best Lingerie Shop

Flirt Boutique

Like good chocolate, fine lingerie should be elegant and subtle—not cloyingly sweet. Unfortunately, most Twin Cities shops devoted to underpinnings either a) appear to cater to sex workers, or b) display enormous, intimidating photos of big-breasted models who have no hips. Fortunately, Flirt Boutique, which opened in May, has filled the gap for women who understand that sexy and classy are not incompatible concepts. Flirt's bras, panties, negligees, and dressing gowns are pretty enough to make a girl want to turn up the furnace and strip down to her skivvies in the dead of winter. In addition to lingerie, the shop carries a darling array of jeweled perfume bottles, scented candles, and books on silly but pleasant topics, such as the secrets of French style. Best of all, stepping into Flirt is like a luxurious visual bubble bath; just being near the crystal chandelier and glamorous pin-up girls adorning the walls makes a gal feel, well, more beautiful—no matter what panties she's wearing.
