Porcelynne Lingerie

While every woman ought to have an assortment of classically naughty pieces in her lingerie repertoire, Oakland designer Jennifer Lynne proves that it is perfectly acceptable to pair some comfort with that sass. Her Porcelynne line is full of cozy yet slinky numbers that, in the range of unmentionables, are equivalent to a glass of wine and a steaming bubble bath. After giving up her San Francisco shop a few months back, Lynne moved east, which means that you can browse her black lace boyshorts and Victorian print tank tops online or by appointment at her Oakland studio. And if just the idea of supporting a plucky local seamstress isn’t enough, the lure of a sale might. Since the company is so small, Lynne often offers steep markdowns at the end of a season, when frugal chicks can score a pair of undies for as little as $8. Stay tuned for fresh developments, as Lynne is getting ready to release a whole new line, replete with a new must-have: lace-up panties and bras.
