Larisa - Owner
Larisa purchased Chantilly Lace from Georgette, a French woman, in 2015, and has since enjoyed becoming an expert on great lingerie. She studied set & costume design at UCLA & absolutely loves styling people. Larisa has lived in some very exotic places & is bilingual in Spanish. She enjoys traveling to New York & Paris in search of wonderful things for the shop & writing quirky newsletters sharing her experiences. Most of all, she enjoys the neighborhood vibe of the shop and making sure all customers feel welcome.
Bella - Master Fitter
Bella grew up in Kiev, came to the North Shore with her son in the early 1990s and while working at Lord & Taylor was approached by Georgette & offered a job at Chantilly Lace. She has since defined the kind & helpful spirit of the business and solved thousands of bra problems. Our customers love her gracious & gregarious ways. Many regulars ask for Bella because she's their bra lady. We all love getting to know our regulars. Bella can often remember which bra is someone's favorite as soon as they walk in.
Erika - Bra Stylist
Erika has been fitting bras for years and managed several Somas. She is a team player, quick on her feet and really enjoys seeing the transformative effect of great bras on a person's look, self-concept and state of mind. Like Bella and Larisa, Erika is very helpful and down to earth, making all our customers feel welcome. She also loves beautiful things & can't wait to open new shipments to see what treasures she has to work with. Erika has a painter's eye & knows what looks good.
