There are countless lingerie shops in Manhattan, but there aren’t many like Town Shop on the Upper West Side. Now, we’re going to go out on a limb and guess that most of you haven’t been properly fitted for a bra. In fact, statistics say that 75–80% of women wear an incorrect bra size.
If you feel that you could use some support, look no further than Town Shop, where you will be met by eager saleswomen with measuring tape in-hand. Their mission is to get you into an undergarment that will not only fit you accurately, but actually help you look your best in your clothes.
Is it time to recycle those old bras or upgrade those plain panties? Tired of the same options from cookie cutter lingerie stores or "one size fits all" while shopping? Then Journey through Journelle and allow the friendly, accommodating staff to make your shopping trip the lingerie experience of a lifetime.
Let the trained staff provide you with a personalized fitting consultation and explain the details of a good bra fit or feel free to browse through some of the best selections in fashion pieces, comfort styles and trendy intimates. Choose from high end, high quality brands such as Elle Macpherson, Chantelle, Simone Perele, Eberjey and Cosabella; to name a few. If you're really in the mood to spoil yourself; slip into a La Perla piece, what the specialists at Journelle call "the Rolls Royce of lingerie!"
