Lingerie — a once taboo topic — is now as mainstream as Starbucks, only way more fun. Just for the record, lingerie is every bit as much for a man, if not more, than for the women wearing it. Nor are those couture wired-in lifts just for the boudoir. Nowadays, with the entire planet learning to heal from within, we have also learned to appreciate feeling good underneath what we’re showing the world on the outside. To many women, this is a priority — even worth skipping a meal for. And if sexy comes from within, then a cotton silk demi bra and matching brief, in say, winter white with satin piping should add some bounce to your step. But why stop there? There is lingerie for every occasion, not just for temptation — dressing gowns, silk wrap kimonos and fur-trimmed negligees, corsets, bodysuits and marabou heels (with those powder blue puffs on top) can start any fire or just make a woman feel grand at home. Men, if you’re not sure, just ask. Retailers are dying to educate you, and you’ll find that a simple undergarment in the finest fabric for everyday use is still an elegant gift for her. Ladies, have a salesperson’s card ready to give your man or simply register your top picks. Here are some of the best lingerie stores in Las Vegas. - Marco Medrano
