Exquisite lingerie…

Excuse me while I blush.

For most men, the thought of lingerie makes them anxious – not to mention break into a full-on panic – when they have to go shopping for it. Even some women find the task of lingerie shopping intimidating because of perceived body issues and undergarments that fit poorly in the past.

A cure for LSAD – lingerie shopping anxiety disorder – is Top Drawer-The Linen Closet in downtown Grass Valley, owned by the ever-tasteful and elegant Marilyn Seolas.

On first visit to the elegant Mill Street store, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the luxuriously plush selection of merchandise.

In addition to the most complete selection of bras and lingerie in Northern California (yes, that includes Nordstrom), Seolas offers a seductive collection of sleepwear, loungewear, accessories, gifts and custom-designed bedding.

Seolas appreciates the responsibility of finding the best selection of merchandise to meet and exceed the needs of her vast customer base, which results in repeat customers from the San Francisco Bay Area and Lake Tahoe regions. She visits markets in San Francisco, San Mateo, Los Angeles and Las Vegas to find the best pieces to be featured in her store.

She also offers her amazing selection of merchandise to customers in the Auburn area with her store, Legends on Lincoln, demonstrating the success of her distinct eye for design and dedication to stellar customer service.

Shopping with Top Drawer-The Linen Closet fits into your life. The store carries bra sizes from 30A to 44H and prices starting at $35, with experts to personally help each customer ensure the best bra fit for every body shape.

The Top Drawer-The Linen Closet also features items for the whole family. Seolas offers an adorable selection of sleepwear for children, cotton and silk boxers for guys, Unisex bathrobes for his-and-her lounging and special orders: This lingerie shopping experience is anything but girly.

Fashion brands include Bras from Walcoal, DKNY, Anita and Jezebel; stylish and comfortable sleepwear from Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren and Carol Hochman; elegant lingerie from Lisa’s Folly, Mary Green and Mystique; and functional loungewear from PJ Harlow and DKNY.

Even the most critical fashion-lover will find amazing pieces that will work with their everyday wardrobe and that are perfect for layering.

Seolas is careful to select brands that offer fashion-forward styling, colors and fabrics in addition to classically styled pieces that will work for everyone.

Be on the lookout this spring and summer for items from Betsy Johnson, new swimwear fitted to your bra size, and colors such as aqua and sea green.

It is the extras that keep the customers coming back, and Top Drawer-The Linen Closet offers plenty of extras.

Services that rival large, overpriced department stores include bachelorette boutique parties featuring private showing of wedding undergarments and accessories, coupled with complementary wine and hors d’oeuvres; special gift registers for weddings and other special occasions; special orders, layaway, late pick-up and phone-in orders; and free, custom gift-wrapping.

Seolas and her talented team can assist even the shyest guy to check his lingerie shopping anxiety disorder at the door and select the best item to please even the most discerning fashionista.
