As a boudoir photographer I am often asked by my clients, "where should I shop for outfits for my shoot?!". We are lucky that Charleston boasts an amazing locally owned lingerie store. Bits of Lace Fine Lingerie. They even have two locations in and around Charleston; one in Mt Pleasant and one on King St. Downtown (location information and addresses at the bottom of this post).
The original location opened its doors in 1976 downtown and has since moved twice, to more prominent locations downtown on King Street. Currently housed in an 1880s storefront, their downtown store is elegant, well arranged and absolutely beautiful.
"Bra Fitting Atelier", as it states in their store and on their website, "The core component of Bits of Lace’s business is specialty bra fitting with trained professionals in a personal and private atmosphere."
They are true masters of their craft, with an incredible selection to boot!

In early 2014, Bits of Lace expanded outside of downtown Charleston for the first time and opened a second location near Shem Creek in Mt Pleasant. A gorgeous open space, the Mt Pleasant location offers abundant parking and a more contemporary selection of lingerie than the store downtown.
I was lucky enough to work with them on a couple boudoir photo shoots and will be releasing the images here on the blog over the next few weeks! In the meantime, check out the photos I took of their beautiful Mt Pleasant location below!
