Take a walk down the Brighton Laines and you will find She Said, an inclusive lingerie boutique selling everything from bridal underwear to festish clothing and toys. You can expect a friendly and relaxed welcome and assistance in selecting the right products if you wish. The secluded shop allows privacy to browse alone or with a significant other. Discover Editor caught up with owner’s daughter Plum to find out more.
She Said opened its doors back in 2002 in Ship Street Gardens, a twitten between Ship Street and Middle Street in the heart of Brighton.
Plum revealed, ‘We had a brief stint on the busier Ship Street for four years when our then landlord refused to renew our lease. But when the opportunity arose to move back to the twitten we seized the opportunity. Our customers love the quiet and tucked away location. It’s perfect for our boutique’.
She Said had always strived to break down the taboos around the erotic by blending the offering of the adult side of the business, toys, kinky accessories, erotic art and fetish fashion, with beautiful, well-made and often unique lingerie and burlesque fashion. It’s worth a visit just to see their wonderful selection of stunning hand made nipple tassels alone.
The business has become famous for their lingerie and corsets and stock a wide range of sizes up to a GG cup. They have recently started to offer a personal shopping service to assist customers find what they desire in their size.
She Said also offer a fine selection of toys for women, men and couples and there’s something for everyone. If you are after long distance Bluetooth toys, they have all the latest hi tech offerings. They also sell more Lo tech toys in glass and semi precious stones. And for the eco conscious there is even fully biodegradable range.
There are big plans for the coming year as She Said expands into the premises next door.
Plum was excited to share the news exclusively with Discover, ‘It is so exciting to be taking over our very original shop which we first opened in 21 years ago. The extra space will allow us to continue to grow our online business which goes from strength to strength but also take on new ranges. We will be starting to offer a select range of fetish menswear and underwear and a bigger range of women’s fetish and burlesque fashion.’
