With wedding season around the corner, it’s only natural you’re probably running around grabbing some lingerie and other fun items on a whim. And if you’re looking to shop locally while doing so, Galatea Lingerie, located at 1224 Washington Street, is a decent {and frilly!} bet for finding some unique gifts in uptown Hoboken. Here’s a peek inside a recent visit:

Upon entering Galatea, you’ll be overwhelmed by the amount of fun goodies that are placed throughout the store. Case in point: Mini macaroon jewelry boxes {below}, “I Do” lingerie and garter sets for brides, and rows and rows of lip glosses and other adorable knick knacks atop shelves. A few of the brands Galatea carries: Casabella, Only Hearts, 3Dots, and Hanky Panky, Wacoal, Natori, Betsy Johnson, On Gossamer, Simone Perele, Chantelle, Blush, Calida, Cosabella, and Le Mystere — ya know, casual — with items ranging from lingerie to candles to jewelry and other gifts.

When it comes to actual lingerie, Galatea is hip to its hanky panky game. Items are arranged for easy sorting and decision-making, based on color and type of undergarments you’re in the mood for/ need to buy. There’s no rhyme or reason, so you’ll be enjoying eye candy throughout the store. For those looking for bridal gifts, there are a few areas that have bridal accessories and “kits.”  Just a few of the colors of the Hanky Panky brand, below {perfect for the underwear game sitch at a bachelorette party, just sayin’}:

Lingerie and sleepwear are racked on the right and left sides of the store {with tons of nude and black in case you’re going sleek and minimalistic}, coupled with a cute couch and matching sentiments nearby.

Looking for perfume or eau de toilette items to give as a stocking stuffer or mini present? Gang’s all here. Tashi, Stone Cooper, Annsiam Jewelry, Tocca, Shelley Kyle, Lollia, Tokyo Milk are a few of the premium brands you’ll most likely come across. According to the owners, Gilly and Diane, inventory gets updated and added to each week, and if you’re looking for something specific, just request it!

And on the subject of Galatea’s owners, Gilly and Diane are super friendly and helpful, making your experience feel truly ‘local’ and personal. You’ll either find them up front chatting happily with a customer or in the back helping with a fitting {yes, you can get measured for your bra size, etc. as well}. A great little uptown boutique, essential for that random bridal shower gift or one-stop-shop to find that sexy piece of lingerie for your Saturday night in.
