Wilmette >Chantilly Lace Lingerie
In conservative Wilmette, provocative lingerie hangs in the back of this French-inspired shop..
A pair of ornate flower urns marks the entrance to this pretty boutique in the quaint business district of Wilmette. The scent of lavender envelops you as the French-born owner, Georgette, welcomes you into her packed shop. Flowery knickknacks adorn shelves and tables, and a small play area lets kids play while moms shop.
Georgette's goal is to make women feel good about themselves and their inner beauty, no matter their size, shape or situation--upcoming marriage, pregnancy or recent masectomy. Besides an abundance of designer lace, silk and cotton bras in sizes up to 46FF (and prices up to $70), you'll find basic bras and a noteworthy assortment of strapless. Chantilly also carries Calvin Klein and Donna Karan hosiery; frilly garters and other bridal accessories; slippers; terry, silk and cotton robes; nightgowns by Christian Dior and Oscar de la Renta; and pajamas with fun, sometimes juvenile, designs--like monkeys, cats and polka dots. Sexy fur-lined numbers are on a rack in the back.
