Lingerie To Love at Staci’s Place in East Greenwich
Saturday, September 07, 2013
The power of lingerie
Staci's is a true corsetiere – a unique place with a single focus: to indulge women’s sensual side and make them feel good. Wearing the right bra size cannot be understated and fortunately, Staci, a former nurse who spent 28 years as a breast cancer fitting specialist, knows how to measure for a perfect size. Staci can obtain sizes up to 53 I, and believes wearing the correct size makes all the difference in how a woman feels about herself. She is even knowledgeable about types of bra wiring (half, quarter, etc.) that’s right for a woman’s particular silhouette (full, conical, etc.). Her skills help a woman look confident, whether she's a young mother running from yoga to car pool, or a woman of a certain age, newly divorced and reinventing herself. Comfortable, fitted, pretty lingerie is more than utilitarian. It’s powerful.
No more granny panties
The “Fifty Shades Effect” has made women more discerning about their lingerie choices and with Staci's carefully curated selection you won't find six-to-a-package cotton granny panties here. Surprisingly, her customers are often over 40 and they're buying corsets, chemises, and unique “built-in” garter belts. Staci states her customers want sexy AND tasteful, and garments that are exquisitely crafted for any age. Her clients range in age up to 70 and they’re not buying old-lady briefs, you may be astonished to know!
Even though the famous and so French Simone Perele line comes from across the pond, (or any other piece in a special size or color choice), it only takes 7 to 10 business days to make it into your adorable shopping tote tied with ribbon. It doesn’t matter if you have selected Cosabella’s newest chemise in a larger size made in Italy, or a retro panty from Switzerland, all special orders arrive quickly. But Staci’s is chockablock with lingerie in multiplicity to try and touch and experience at her shop on Main St.
In addition to bras and panties, Staci carries sleepwear (up to size 4X), swim suits, high quality leggings, hosiery, and corsets. For the more demure, her selection of romantic Eileen West nightgowns makes a charming gift for yourself or a friend. She also specializes in bridal lingerie for magical wedding days and honeymoons.
Staci is a true old-world style proprietress and will make special before or after-hour appointments to meet with customers who want a discreet personal touch or have special needs. Many women bring in their daughters for that first special bra fitting. As well, Staci is available for speaking engagements to women who have had breast cancer and are post-operative, whether in a large group or in a private home setting. Staci also opens her doors exclusively to men on special nights when the live models she employs, often of varied sizes, are prepared to answer any questions a man may have before buying something special for his beloved. Staci makes it easy for everyone because she is passionate about the life-enhancing power of lingerie.
Embrace the inner goddess
It may have taken an erotic modern novel to inspire women to embrace their inner goddesses but years ago, lovely lingerie with laces and trims were the basics of women’s wardrobes. In today’s boardroom or soccer sidelines, there seems to be no room for romantic feminine garments. But Staci’s Fine Intimates will have you longing for them. Even if you didn’t read the book!
Staci's Place, Fine Intimates is located at 99 Main St., East Greenwich, RI.
