Best Place to Get Undies
924 King St., Alexandria, (571) 312-0852
The underwear-purchasing experience is typically not pleasant. Customers can go to a department store and look through packed racks under florescent lighting, or to a national chain that involves a secret-that-isn’t-that-secret anymore. In short: It’s something we have to do versus something we look forward to. But Bloomers is changing the game. This underwear, sleepwear, and loungewear spot in Old Town is not a fancy, overpriced lingerie store. Instead, it offers a spectrum of products from brands like Spanx, Hanky Panky, Hue, and Yummie by Heather Thompson. The fabrics are soft. The PJ pants have cute prints. It’s a store that contains foundation garment solutions, yet the goods are pretty instead of feeling utilitarian.
