This store isn't for the faint of heart. Think corsets and schoolgirl skirts plus an x-rated section fit for a truly wild night. It’s a store for the uninhibited, so leave your judgments at the door and be prepared for a bare-all experience.

Tucked inside the Japan Center Mall (Suite 330), Shibuyasf may cater to a cutesy crowd but among the frills and the bows, there are some very pretty, lacy underthings. And surprisingly, the store always stocks plus-sizes.

Not the most exciting lingerie destination, but if you're working with a budget, nothing can beat F21. Most bras clock in around $10 and are a nice combo of figure flattering and sexy. Sizes are always inconsistent so be sure to try on everything before purchasing.

CA, 94103
(415) 543-4550
Visit Website
American Eagle's lingerie brand Aerie carries a range of lingerie (from everyday to a little bit sexy) at an appealing price point. The bralettes are currently on sale for just $20, and they're as comfy as they are cute. The sales associates are on the less helpful side but that also means no one will chase you around with a measuring tape.
