At Basics Underneath, we believe every body is beautiful.
Basics Underneath fine lingerie opened their doors in 1998 on Magazine Street, in New Orleans. Founders, Desiree Petitbon and Juliet Holton, successful Graphic Designers, after an inspirational trip to Paris, decided that Magazine street needed some “joie de vie”, in the form of lingerie. At the same time they recognized the need for quality comfortable and fine foundation items as well as sexual frilly and fun! Embracing all that is feminine Basics opened. The women of New Orleans and our visitors could now have a Lingerie shopping experience. And from lingerie we naturally expanded to active wear and swim. Basics fine lingerie now offers that same Magazine Street boutique experience online. The ultra-stylish, in the know fashion followers can now find their favorite intimates conveniently and privately, but with the same costumer service and satisfaction as shopping in our boutique. Basics provides interactive content designed to help you make the right decision for your body, style and size… all while having fun!
