Shop Alert: Forty Winks Opens in Harvard Square

Forty Winks, Harvard Square

While I’m constantly parading up and down Newbury, I don’t make it over to Harvard Square quite as often. And when I do, I’m a bit, shall we say, affected, by the margaritas from the Border. So it’s no surprise that Daily Candy scooped me.  Forty Winks, a new boudoir/boutique,  opened at 56 JFK Street on Friday.

I just chatted with co-owner Meredith Donaldson (the other is Rachel Wentworth; they both worked at Mint Julep), who sent this photo (I’ll get over there soon!)  and ran down their raison d’etre and list of brands for me. Basically, they’re a lingerie and loungewear shop (they actually know how to fit bras) that also sells some swimwear, scarves, and candles. She points out the area’s dearth of underthings, “There’s nothing in Davis, Porter, Harvard, or Central; you had to go downtown or to Cambridgeside .”

As for labels, they’ve got: Cosabella, Hanky Panky, Spanx, Bobi, Le Mystere, Chantelle, Belabumbum, OnGossamer, Eberjey, Mary Green, Huit, Top Secret, Keep Me, Daft Bird, Plan B Leggings, Yummie Tummie, Soak Lingerie Wash, Commando, Voluspa Candles, Felina, and more.
