The Chicago Traveler

wildflowers lingerieAs a guy, I know next to nothing about women’s underthings. Fortunately, Gretchen Reachmack is here to help and give plenty of… support.

Gretchen’s hidden Old Town spot, Wildflowers, helps ladies update their drawers, so to speak. Ditch the grannie panties and try on something that will make you feel confident, alluring, and comfortable. From designers like Simone-Perele, Elle MacPherson, Cosabella, and Leigh Bantivoglio, this boutique offers an array of sensual lingerie, negligees, bras, and bustiers, along with an arsenal of lotions, books, videos, jewelry, music, and aromas.

With the courtyard setting and the buzzer-controlled entrance (code 0012), this will feel like your own personal secret. And not Victoria’s.

    Although I can assure you I’m not a great candidate to model lingerie, more often than not one of my clients would be happy to gain a male opinion for their lingerie selections…come on in!
