Though unmentionables once referred to all manner of things––Grandpa's missing hands, Phlogiston theory, and the truth about cats and dogs—only one thing is worth not mentioning today. Don't say a word with today's romance-clad Groupon: for $35, you get $75 worth of bras, bra sets, bustiers, and chemises at Jaryam.
For nearly 30 years, Jaryam has matched ladies to fine, form-fitting lingerie from hard-to-find European designers such as Isabel de Pedro and high-end labels such as La Perla, Cotton Club, Huit, and Falke. Step through the boutique’s red-framed door into a 19th-century townhouse bathed in soft light and browse silky wares from Under Glamour ($10), Commando ($20–$26), NuBra ($34–$65), and Andres Sarda ($112+). A La Perla basic bra allows ladyfolk to return to the root of undergarment elegance ($98), and the Marie Jo convertible bra in nude hides underneath any garment like a fugitive wanted for stealing chameleons ($110). Jaryam’s friendly, knowledgeable staff strolls the skivvies shop’s hardwood floors at all times and extols helpful sizing advice whenever a customer needs it.
