Romantika Lingerie’s staff conducts expert personal fittings to help coquettish customers choose from a variety of frilly undergarments from French, Italian, and Californian designers such as Lise Charmel, Arianne, and Lejaby. A pair of Lucia boyshorts in pink lace weaves flowery arabesques ($32) while pajamas and robes from P.J. Salvage and Wendy Glez make for stylish lounging. In addition to unmentionables, Romantika Lingerie purveys bath and beauty products, including a lilac pedi buffer infused with lemongrass and bergamot ($14), as well as candles in scents such as honeysuckle and lavender ($32) to perfume boudoirs or confuse lost butterflies. Chums and main squeezes can wait in the velvety embrace of a purple chaise lounge perched atop a zebra-print rug as customers try on items in the boutique’s curtain-cloaked fitting room.
Romantika Lingerie proprietors Sasha Tsupina and Kate Gordin lend their Eastern European sensibilities to fit American women with lingerie tailored for a range of sizes. Patrons glide through a store swathed in black and white with animal print accents, sifting through racks of lace and silk undergarments crafted by Californian, Italian, and French designers, including pieces by Christian Lacroix and bra strips bedecked in Swavorski crystals. Ladies can find accessories to fight fashion emergencies such as visible panty lines, perspiration, and accidentally wearing the same negligee as the lampshade.
