Paris, we all go believing there’s going to be a plethora of lingerie to be discovered only to arrive and see that there is really only a handful of lingerie boutiques that are worth the visit. I did quite a bit of lingerie boutique stalking on my most recent trip to Paris but here are my absolute favourites, some of most are my usual shopping spots in the city of love. Also with tax free of anything over 175 Euros you’ll be saving on those luxury pieces! Not to mention you’ll be able to try some of the most beautiful pieces available.
A really fun store to visit, the displays are quite minimal and everything is easy to browse through. Definitely worth a visit just to see all the cute details of the store itself. The staff are super lovely and helpful too.
Though I am a little worried with Chantal no longer designing for the brand the iconic style of this boutique will be changed forever. Make sure you go asap before that happens especially with all the rebranding in talks.

No visit to Paris is complete without a visit to the dollhouse. Fifi’s designs are ultra feminine and romantic so if that’s your style you’ll feel the true magic of this stunning boutique. They offer custom sizing as well if you’d like to get something made for you which is also made in their atelier in Paris (usually takes 15 days).
MAP – 68 Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 75001 Paris. Closest Metro – Louvre-Rivoli / Les Halles
Everything in this boutique is made in Paris, downstairs in their cute little atelier. Known for their black lingerie and the most beautiful lace from around France and Italy. If your lucky you’ll also get to meet Elvis, the shop pup!

Your very typical modern french girl lingerie. Simple, light and colourful, nothing too lacy, strappy or frilly.
MAP – 35 Rue de Richelieu, 75001 Paris. Closest Metro – Pyramides
If you want to try something very typically french I would suggest Aubade. It’s not as easily accessible for me back home so I always pop by when I’m in Paris. Boutiques are located all over the city as well as department stores but here is one I frequented
MAP – 33 Rue des Francs Bourgeois, 75004 Paris. Closest Metro – Saint Paul
This department store has the largest selection in Paris and I would suggest stopping by here first to see which brands are your favourites before you make your way to a boutique. They have all your classics like Chantal Thomas, Simone Perele, Aubade, Chantelle, Agent Provocateur etc as well as indie designers such as Yasmine Eslami and Le Petit Trou just to name a few.
MAP – Level 4, 40 Boulevard Haussmann, 75009 Paris. Closest Metro – Chaussée d’Antin La Fayette
Located in one of my favourite arrondissements of Paris is this unique little boutique. Offering luxury and everyday lingerie such as Esquisse, Opaak, Loveday London, Paloma Casile just to name a few. There boutique is also a mini art gallery which features a little nook of erotic photography, books and zines which are also scattered throughout the store. Definitely worth a visit.
