Single or taken, there's one thing we all know about the most romantic day of the year: lingerie shopping and Valentine's Day go hand-in-hand. And, we get it. There's something about lacy undergarments that can really get the va-va-voom going in any relationship — even one you haven't started yet. But, the thing about those super sexy bras and panties, especially around V-Day, is that the designs (and colors) can get a little, well, cheesy. We're talking tons of reds and pinks, hearts, bows, sequins — the works.
Our solution to the madness? Steer clear of the mass rush at Victoria's Secret and instead, hit up one of these local New York boutiques for all the support you need.
