Los Angeles has more stores than anyone could physically tackle, but somehow we always keep returning to the usual suspects. To break out of the rut, we've asked some local shopping and fashion gurus to provide their hidden retail gems—those unique stores around LA that we might not all know about. Cue the Beatles: We're about to get a little help from our friends.

Rachel Krupa is founder of Krupa Consulting, a LA-based boutique PR firm that focuses on food, fitness and healthy snacks. Rachel splits her time between Los Angeles and New York; her clients include The Clean Plates Cookbook, chef Marcel Vigneron and Mulberry Street Pizza. Here, she tells us about her favorite place for super-sexy underpinnings.
"A friend introduced me to Lenceria, an invitingly small lingerie and swimwear boutique on Sunset at LaCienga of all places. They have the most gorgeous and sensual bras and panties from Latin American designers and they know what sexy is. I was told it was the go to place for those of us less endowed, but after my first visit, I noticed there were beautiful bras and panties for all bodies—and they were completely unique from those found at cookie cutter stores. The owner of Lenceria, Juliana, is the sweetest and will help you find something you'll love that won't break the bank (unless you want to). So, no matter how your cups runneth over (or not), Lenceria is the place for specialty mind-blowing lingerie."
