Best Place to Buy French Lingerie

Coup de Foudre
1001 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, (202) 393-0878
The downtown office worker in need of appropriate underpinnings for a last-minute tryst has few options. Fortunately, one of those options is Coup de Foudre. This is not the lingerie of adolescent fantasies—no tacky peek-a-boo polyster—but grown-ass-women stuff: sexy, tasteful, and expensive, with sterling customer service to match. Upon making a purchase, you’ll leave Coup de Foudre with your new bustier and garters tucked into a discreet, unmarked bag, so you won’t advertise to everyone on the Red Line that you’re off to see your lover in Adams Morgan. So very French.
