FIT graduate Helena Stuart opened her petite UWS shop with heart-bedecked gifts in the 1970s. Today, she’s known for her intimates, which she calls “inner outerwear”: lace-trimmed camisoles (from $40) and jersey chemises that won’t look tawdry when worn out on the street, as well as bras, cute boyshorts and thongs. The delicate tulle mesh and delectable washed-out color palette of many items makes them too pretty to hide. Mixed in with the store’s own label is a small selection of tops, dresses, knitwear and accessories by other designers.
