The lingerie brand Bradelis might be from Japan, but they've quickly learned the very all-American phrase of "go big or go home." The company has decided to open not one, not two, but three new stores in vastly different locations. One of those shops is at 211 Elizabeth Street, another, at 66 Madison Avenue, and the third is in Flushing at 135-20 39th Avenue. And they're all opening today.
After clicking through the website, we've learned that the bras retail mostly around $62, the thongs start at $26, and girdles (their words) go for $82. Best of all, the site also includes a step-by-step instructional guide on how to properly fill your bra with your breasts, in order to get that "golden triangle"—which appears to translate to really good cleavage.
