1320 NE Broadway; 722 NW 23rd

When life's got you down, a new bra can really pull things back up! Oh Baby lingerie stores are the surest fix for a bad day at the office or in divorce court. Gorgeous underpinnings are playfully displayed among vintage books and space-age vibrators (that 24k gold one? Oh, BABY!), and before you've got your gloves off you'll be offered wine and champagne. Soon your bust will be in the capable hands of Anna Marie Burchett, whose warmth and expertise put the most prim tits and asses at ease. Anna's been wielding her tape measure for seven years. She was trained by Macy's head fit specialist out of Seattle, and then underwent advanced training to earn her certification. Since then Anna's dressed breasts at department stores around the Northwest, but seems to have found her own perfect fit at Oh Baby, where she is highly prized.

Is there anything that bothers you about lingerie trends in America? The European lines seem far more sophisticated.

Women in America need to step away from the sweater and T-shirt bras. That's a pet peeve of mine. We all have nipples; it's okay if they show once in a while. It's okay to have a little lace and a little femininity underneath your clothing every day. Although I do sell sweater bras: We have two—they're by Chantelle and they're fabulous. And we carry DIMRS [pronounced "dimmers"] for women who have issues with their nipples: they're silicone, hypoallergenic, and they're fabulous. They solve the problem of headlights.

Do you have a lingerie philosophy?

Every woman should have a wardrobe of bras and be able to rotate them in and out. We recommend between five and six.

Should they all be black?

No. Although Oh Baby's philosophy is that everyone should be able to walk out of here with a really sexy black bra in any size. We're talking 32A to 38/40G/H.

How big is a G- or an H-cup?

It's like a quadruple D-cup size. That's predominantly whom we cater to, the Ds and up, because they have a harder time finding bras that are pretty.

How do you feel about boobs in general?

I love them. I think they're great. I just think women need to be nicer to themselves and realize that we're all really sexy.

I suppose we better talk about panties, just to be fair. What color panties are you wearing and how long have you been wearing them?Black boy shorts, and I've been wearing them for two hours.
