Dedicated to the fine art of lingerie, Birdie’s is a tiny yet well-stocked store that features an array of silky, sophisticated undergarments and swimwear created by local and national designers.
Owner Peregrine Honig is an expert at on-the-spot recommendations if you’re not sure what to choose.
If you’d like a less expensive alternative to some of the boutique’s pricier pieces, try a pair of Birdie’s signature panties with various designs hand-screened onto American Apparel briefs and bikinis.
