Our photographer and stylist been doing a little scouting for you to find the very best places to get your bedroom couture on in Perth, and here’s what she found…
Where is it? Midland Gate Shopping Centre, 97/274 Great Eastern Hwy, Midland WA 6056
If Honey Birdette were a day of the week, they would be Saturday. In other words, they’re the best. They’re not the cheapest option, but like all worthwhile investments, they price to suit their impeccable quality. What we especially like about Birdette’s lingerie is that it’s classy and extremely sexy and will do a lot to transform the shape and appearance of a woman’s body. They have a variety of lingerie up to a size F and even do beautiful dressing gowns and accessories.
Cotton on Body
Where is it? Shop 33, Carillion City, Perth, WA, 6000
Even if you’re not a chain shopper, it’s hard not to fall in love with Cotton On Body’s consistently affordable and uncomplicated style. If all you’re looking for is a matching bra and undie set, then this is the place to go. It’s a no-frills venture, and you won’t find anything that isn’t a bra or panty set, but then that’s kind of the beauty of it. It’s a fantastic alternative to Bras N Things, and despite the stock being the same in all outlets, the service is impeccable with beautifully down to earth and friendly staff.
Silk Elegance Lingerie
Where is it? Shop 12/ 663 Newcastle St, Leederville, WA 6007
It’s not easy to find somewhere that has it all, but Silk Elegance lingerie really has just about everything. From Silk dressing gowns, hosiery, bridal lingerie, camisoles, bustiers and torsolettes, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find something elegant and body flattering. Their style is classy and lacy and like any good lingerie outlet, caters to curvy women. We particularly love their corsets and bustiers which are varied for different body types. It’s not the cheapest option but they often have sales (and when they do, they’re significant!)
Bras N Things
Where is it? Hay Street Mall, 663 Hay Street, Perth, WA 6000
With over 175 stores over Australia and New Zealand, the best thing about Bras N Things is that they are everywhere! Not only that, but they have a truly magnificent selection of lingerie for all body shapes and even have a specialist curvy line with lingerie that goes up to a K cup! All Bras N Things team members are qualified bra fitting specialists who are happy to give you a comfortable and accurate fitting and the Bras N Things website is a genuine pleasure to use.
Where is it? 207 Murray St, Perth WA 6000
The one thing that the four seasons triumphs in, is their specialization in fitting post-mastectomy bras, something we feel is extremely important. They also have an excellent plus size and larger cup line which is quite frankly, a god send. If you needed another reason to visit Four Seasons, supporting a family run business would be it – as a family run business ourselves, we think it’s fantastic that they’ve been giving such friendly, catered service for over 50 years.
Where is it? Piccadilly Theatre and Arcade, Shop 3A 800, Perth WA 6000
This is a definite MUST for our rockabilly, pin up and burlesque lovers out there. Primarily a vendor for clothing, they have a to die for range of lingerie as well as corsets. Not only that but they sell a unique range of makeup and accessories to really finish off the look including gloves, false lashes, wigs, jewelry, hats, fascinators and fans! It’s a great place to go if you’re looking for something different – it’s certainly the place to go for all your lingerie garnishes.
A cup above Pty Ltd
Where is it? 4/17 Davidson Terrace, Joondalup WA 6027
With an endless list of raving reviews, we can’t help but agree that A Cup Above is well deserving of being in our top ten. They have one of the largest ranges in bra sizes we have ever seen and are devout in providing the perfect fit for the fuller cup. In terms of cost, they’re in a similar ballpark to Honey Birdette and offer very high-quality couture for your dollar. They also have one of the best FAQ’s section on their website which cover a wide range of bra quibbles.
The Bra Bar
Where is it? 305 Murray St, Perth WA 6000
The Bra Bar is one of the longest established Bra and lingerie stores in Australia and have had their doors open since 1985! They have a great range of cuts and styles, though their sizing appears relatively limited to 10-18/ a-DD cup, which is a bit of a downfall in the age of beautiful body diversity. The site does however offer bustiers, body suits, shapewear, suspenders and camisoles. They also have a bridal section for those wanting something specifically to ensure their fiancé doesn’t get cold feet on the day! Price wise you’re looking at a mid-range investment with bras between $60 – $120.
