Whether your plans for upcoming Valentine's Day (cue either glee or dread) include a romantic date out on the town with your significant other, or a sexy stay-in night—even if that means a solo dance party to the Jason Derulo Pandora station—it wouldn't hurt to make yourself feel like a full-on goddess with a new set of skivvies. For that reason we've taken the liberty of rounding up the city's no-fail spots to peruse panties, shop silky slips, and even grab a few, er, accessories to let you live out your 50 Shades fantasy—as the case may be.

From more traditional teddies to Marilyn Monroe-esque cone bras and even beyond (one word: latex), this list will point you in the right direction to find yourself—or someone else—the perfect piece for setting a sultry mood.
