Victoria Hill likens lingerie shopping to fine wine tasting, and at Nancy Meyer, her downtown lingerie boutique, she’ll act as your sommelier. The Italians cultivate intricate, ornate underthings; sample the gorgeous pieces by La Perla, a line Hill helped introduce to America in the ’70s. What pairs perfectly with understated elegance? Try some semisheer, supersexy, low-slung silk briefs from the French line Eres. For the playful, Hill recommends Andres Sarda’s Spanish silk and lace.
