One of the very nice things about Intimate Secrets Boutique is the wide selection of lingerie, with everything from comfy soft housecoats to luxury lounge wear to sexy, lacy stuff. And everything in between.
But the very best thing about Intimate Secrets is The Bra Shop and owner Donna Manderson, who is adept and comfortable about custom fitting bras. “Undergarments, and in particular bras, are the foundation of our wardrobe,” Donna said. “If we feel comfortable with our foundations we feel good. If it fits properly we walk taller, we look better, we express it from the inside out.”
The Bra Shop specializes in bras from size A to H. “We serve every demographic group,” Donna said. “Mothers bring their daughters, and grandmothers shop here, too. Being able to fit everyone, that’s my goal.”
If you browse the store you will find comfy flannel pajamas, slippers, housecoats, nighgowns, panties, and in the far corner, adult sex toys. But it’s the full wall of bras, in every size, that catch your eye when you walk in. Donna, and her small dog Cosmos, are there to greet you with a smile.
“Intimate Secrets has very good customer service,” said Christmas shopper, Sandra D’Agostino. “Donna’s great with everyone; if you are comfortable walking in here you are more than comfortable walking out. She just helps you feel at ease. I’m grateful for her help and great service.”
