Beginning as a small, start-up business in 2005, Yandy.com has become the leading online retailer of sexy women’s specialty apparel. Yandy.com offers thousands of stylish items in everyday intimates, lingerie, swimwear and costumes for millions of women around the world, of all shapes and sizes…
The business was started by Frederick Mellinger (inventor of the push-up bra) in 1947. Frederick’s sold bras, panties, corsets, bedroom slippers, a vast array of hosiery, bridal lingerie, special occasion lingerie, and more. The original flagship store was a landmark on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California. In September 2005, after 59 years, the store moved to a larger space a few blocks away, near the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue.
Victoria’s Secret was founded by Roy Raymond, and his wife Gaye, in San Francisco, California, on June 12, 1977.
Eight years prior to founding Victoria’s Secret, Raymond was embarrassed when purchasing lingerie for his wife at a department store. Newsweek reported him looking back on the incident from the vantage of 1981: “When I tried to buy lingerie for my wife,” he recalls, “I was faced with racks of terry-cloth robes and ugly floral-print nylon nightgowns, and I always had the feeling the department store saleswomen thought I was an unwelcome intruder.”
Christmas Lingerie Costumes, funky footwear, the thongs I love and a wide range of adult costumes can be found at Electrique Boutique.
