Publisher Comments:

Rebecca Apsan is the lingerie evangelist. She knows that intimate apparel has the power to transform. That the right bra affects not only look, but outlook. That sexy silk or lace are feminine armor, offering a soft layer of protection against lifes vicissitudes. Her New York City store, La Petite Coquette, draws shoppers from around the world—and not just the celebrities who swear by it. New York Magazine sings her praises as “the best bra-fitter in the country”; so does Lucky. The Wall Street Journal wrote up her role in catapulting Hanky-Panky thongs onto every well-dressed womans must-have list—on their front page! She provided all the intimate apparel for Sex and the City. And now Rebecca Apsan is ready to divulge thirty years of wisdom and insider information about how underclothes can make the woman.

For a world where 85% of women are wearing the wrong size bra, The Lingerie Handbook is a complete tops-to-bottoms guide to bras, panties, slips, sleepwear shapewear, stockings, teddies, camisoles, and accessories. Theres the how-to on proper fit, including before-and-after photographs. Guides to matching the right underwear to different outfits. (T-shirts, jersey dresses, white pants, strapless gowns? No problem!) Straightforward advice on shopping, cleaning, organizing, and storing. But inspiration, too: how to cure body-image hang-ups by finding the right undergarments. And romance: how to find your own inner flirt, develop a unique style, and, when the occasion is right, how to dress to undress.

Synopsis:

THE TOPS-TO-BOTTOMS PROGRAM FOR TRANSFORMING YOURSELF FROM THE INSIDE OUT

Both a sassy manifesto for self-discovery and a guide to everything lingerie, this book sparkles with inspiration, encouragement, and practical advice from celebrated lingerie expert Rebecca Apsan. (Daily Candy founder Dany Levy: “If anyone knows lingerie, its Rebecca. She makes ‘unmentionables addictively mentionable.”) For all women—no matter your age, dress size, shape, or personal style—heres the what to buy, the how to wear it, even the why to wear it: because youll look fantastic… and feel great about yourself.

About the Author

Sarah Stark writes for Daily Candy, Victorias Secret, and MTV.

Rebecca Apsan turned her childhood love of drawing and making pottery into a passion for transforming the female form with the most beautiful lingerie available. And so La Petite Coquette, her destination lingerie store in New York City, was born. Now the foremost authority on the subject, she is sought out by stylists looking for the perfect something for their celebrity clients, by magazines searching for insight into trends, and by women from around the world who want to look great and feel better. Rebecca divides her time between New York City and Fire Island, New York.

This book is an eye-opener for all women who have never been fitted for a bra and/or treated themselves to sexy lingerie. It will change your life!!! The book is sassy and very much to-the-point and filled with really useful information that I guarantee you do not already know.

This store (La Petite Coquette) is a must-see for anyone visiting New York and is a wonderful shop. The help is terrific and Rebecca is often around.
