Profile Last Updated: November 17, 2010
Sophia’s Lingerie is a popular vendor of brand name brassieres, swimwear and corsets, having operated out of its Danforth location for over 15 years. Sophia’s carries a vast selection of supportive undergarments geared to every body type and practical use. The store employs a number of specialists who are trained to properly fit your bra and help you find exactly the type of functional support required (whether you want to enhance your cleavage or downplay your breast size). Sophia’s Lingerie generally caters to an upscale clientele and carries the wares of top brand names like Chantelle, Barbara, Anita, Simon Perele and Triumph.
Beyond functional brassieres and panties – which dominate the majority of the floor space in central fixtures divided by brand name – Sophia’s Lingerie also does a lot of business in more sheer, lacey and provocative lingerie. While the regular bras are sold in boxes marked by size and brand, the more elegant brassieres are displayed on hangers to give a better impression. The range of colours and patterns is endless. There are also firm, fully-fitted corsets in everything from mauve velour to dainty lace for a slimmer look. Change rooms at the back will assist you in finding the sexiest match.
Sophia’s also carries full nightgowns and silky pajamas (towards the back) and a full wall of one and two-piece bathing suits. The latter are obviously most popular towards the summer season and include underwired suits, skirted bottoms and thongs and bikinis galore. Finally, you’ll find a library of nylon pantyhose organized by colour or transparency (praline luster, chocolate, barely there) off to the side.
