Well, there are many fine boutiques here in Prague, and with the exchange rate you’ll find most places have prices geared towards the locals!
Spring is here, and nothing says I love you like a new pair of underwear. Victoria’s Secret hasn’t opened up in town yet, but there are still lots of shops and boutiques that cater to a woman’s garment needs. Schiesser in Myslbek (Na Příkopě 19-21 Myslbek, Praha, Metro: Staré město, Prague 1, Czech Republic +420 296 504 711) has a decent collection and is moderately priced, while the UAX Original shop in the SENSOR Friendship store (Lidická 11, Metro: Smíchov, Prague 5, Czech Republic +420 731 524 510) and Timo (Koněvova 171, Žižkov, Prague 3, Czech Republic) serve up a wider yet less luxurious selection of garters and stockings for your favorite pair of legs. A special pair of panties can make all the difference.

If you’re looking to put a little stiff in Santa’s stocking, cruise by this tidy lingerie store near Namesti Republiky to pick something sweet and silky for your Christmas angel. Note: this is not a sex or fetish shop. They specialize in sexy, comfortable fashions for women, which your lady might just appreciate more than the peek-a-boo bra and crotchless panties you got her last year. Sexy and styley lace bras go for around 2,170Kc, and matching tanga panties for 1,770Kc, but hey, isn’t she worth it? Ok then, wouldn’t it be worth it to see her in them? They also sell nightgowns and sweaters for the colder winter nights, but who the hell wants to cover up on Christmas Eve?
