Madonna is a very small, friendly boutique that offers the best French lingerie brand Lise Charmel and a mix of a few other brands, including Donna Karan. The selection is for the more modest and traditional female who enjoys wearing tasteful bra and pantie sets. On display were bras in white, black, navy, and red with lace or jewel embellishments. Madonna sells lingerie sets and separate items ranging in colors, textures and sizes. Prices for sets average around 5,000 CZK. The boutique carries sizes up to E and offers the option to special order an item.
What stood out the most about this quaint shop was the extremely friendly staff, which just happens to be a close-knit family circle. Owner, Andrea Jirsova opened the boutique 14 years ago and employs her mother to help manage the business. When asked about the history of the shop, Andrea’s mother showed me a publicity piece with dozens of celebrities wearing the brands Madonna carries. A-List celebs, such as Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Rihanna, have been spotted wearing the sexy pieces found in the Madonna boutique.
In addition to bras and panties, the boutique carries lace nighties and Gerbe Christies stockings.
Purchases are wrapped in very nice packaging and customers are sent off with a smile.
