Cheers to Betsey Johnson!

Has anybody tried out the new Betsey Johnson babydolls offered at Gigi’s? I just love Johnson’s sense of style. You can literally see her personality — a combination of girly and sexy — in her designs, making her one-of-a-kind pieces too wonderful to pass up. I, myself, bought the Dot Tricot Babydoll last week, and I love it! It’s extremely flattering with its self-tie belt, tying right below the chest. In fact, deciding which Johnson piece to get was a hard decision to make. It was between the Dot Tricot and two others that I still wish I could afford. The Burnout Lawn Babydoll is just as sensual and beautiful as the Dot Tricot and I love the uneven ruffles at the bottom. And I can’t stop thinking about the Chiffon Babydoll with Rosette that is completely brand new to Gigi’s — as of last week. Betsey Johnson is not afraid to use color and patterns in her designs, which is why a designer like her is a blessing to the lingerie world. In fact, we will soon have a bio about the designer in our le boudoir section, so you, too, can fall in love with the designer’s playful ways!

Gigi’s Voted Best at Undie Awards

The Undie Award Winners for 2009 were announced this week. Over 20,000 women and men voted for their favorite undergarments, and Gigi’s Closet carries winners from the g-string and strapless bra categories. Our OnGossamer g-string and Goddess strapless bra were declared the best g-string and strapless bra of the year!

The OnGossamer Mesh Hip-G Thong is made of soft material and doesn’t ride up when you sit down (which tends to be the biggest complaint about thongs). So, this is a great thong for a combination of sexiness and maximum comfort. Gigi’s Closet offers it for just $14.00!

The Goddess Lace Longline Bra was chosen as a favorite amongst full-figured women; however it comes in all sizes, ranging from 34B to 50FF. Because of its long line bustier feature, it enhances support — especially for women with larger cup sizes — so it’s no wonder why they voted it the best of its kind. You can pick them up here for only $48!

Both of these undergarments are two among several pieces of lingerie that Gigi’s Closet offers with maximum comfort and support because we sell only the finest lingerie at our boutique.

Life is short. Wear pretty underwear.

Gigi's Closet is Back!

In case you never read the press release, Gigi’s Closet is back with new owners! We are continually adding new products to the store and updating the site to make it easier for customer shopping. I also wanted everyone to know that Gigi’s is still actively pursuing the Bras for Charity drive. Women across the country have trouble affording bras, especially ones that fit. That’s why Gigi’s Closet is asking you to send any of your gently worn or unused bras to our location in Lenexa, Kansas. The bras will go to the Salvation Army and help “support” women in the greater Kansas City area. For more information about the Bras for Charity drive (including where to send them), click here.

Coming soon, we’ll have a designer of the month that we’ll feature in the le boudoir section of the site. And because we’re so involved in our DD+ department, we want to add a section dedicated to those women that come to our site looking for larger cup sizes. We want to eventually have a style guide for each body type or maybe have an interactive section for our customers that wear bras with a DD or larger cup size. That way we can post any questions, comments or even stories from women that have difficulty finding larger bra sizes. So, if you have anything for us to post, e-mail us at Hopefully, we’ll get some discussions going.

As always, Life is short. Wear pretty underwear.
