I know shopping for lingerie can be a bit intimidating but here’s a list of retailers that I highly recommend. Most of these stores are boutique retailers which means they have the staff to help style you and fit you. I generally recommend going to a specialist boutique vs a big box lingerie store like Victoria’s Secret, LaSenza or La Vie En Rose only because you get a little more specialist attention and the products are generally better made
Here a small, but a very specialized number of lingerie dealers that I trust implicitly with my clients. I recommend them because they are independent businesses just like Provocateur Images that excel in customer service and offer unique products and related services to make your session the best it can be with me. They are body positive businesses that align with my values and I love them so much!
The Nookie is Toronto’s premier sensuality shop. Hailed by Toronto Life as the antidote to the standard sex shop, The Nookie’s a psychologist-founded store that features a curated selection of handmade lingerie, bondage gear, and accessories. I can’t understate the quality of the hand-made lingerie available at The Nookie. It’s really worth a visit because they offer a great selection for every price point and body-type.

GIGI’S HOUSE OF FRILLS
I love Gigi’s because they have a unique style when it comes to lingerie. They specialize in a look that is more vintage and pinup inspired. If you’re looking for that kind of look, don’t read any further just go there! However, if you think that a look like that might not suit you, think again. You owe yourself a visit to Gigi’s because I assure you that although the cut of the wardrobe may have a vintage and pinup feel I promise you that you’ll fall in love with what she sells because it’s so well made and actually looks really amazing! Trust me, this isn’t your grandmother’s underwear on sale here, it’s something jaw-droppingly gorgeous and you will be happy you made the trip to see Gigi.
