Saleslady in Bordello, ‘London’s finest purveyor of luxury lingerie and vintage burlesque accessories’
‘The thing you have to realise is that French women have different breasts. They wear underwire bras from a much earlier age and so their breasts actually develop differently. There’s a real cult of the breast in that country, which means that French underwear manufacturers dominate the lingerie market, but British women find that they don’t fit into it. And French women tend not to breastfeed, either. When my aunt gave birth in a Parisian hospital she was the first person to breastfeed on the ward for fifteen years. That’s why you should buy British lingerie, not French.’
Anyway, it was good to see some good old fashioned customer service, and it’s a lovely shop, – selling not only underwear but also some really nice clothes.
