Polina’s Prive sells fine lingerie and operates on the philosophy that “beauty begins on the inside.” In other words, it’s where you get fancy panties for those you actually care about rather than just want to sleep with. The store features lingerie from around the world but with a one-on-one personal touch from local owner Polina Hansen. The service is exceptional and friendly, and the staff can assist with bridal and other special occasions. The free gift-wrapping is even classy. When you actually care, forgo the neon G-string from the sex shop and get those you love some fancy panties.
