Call it a Hallmark holiday, but any excuse for a little romance is good in our book. And it's never a bad idea to punctuate that lovin' feelin' with some lovely underthings. Whatever your pleasure, from full-on corsets and garters to basic undies, you'll find something you love at one of these eight San Francisco lingerie shops. You'll also meet helpful sales persons who will make sure your unmentionables fit so well that you'll want to be mentioning them to everyone. Happy Valentine's Day!
