Clothes maketh the person – especially in these cases

By Time Out editors

Of course, the right outfit can only get you so far. Whether it's that perfect toy for the better half, the right prop for the night's activities, or some inspirational material for some solo work these stores are among the best that Sydney has to offer.

Looking for that perfect outfit for the bedroom and beyond? Whether it's sheer and silky or fierce and fabulous, these are our favourite Sydney stockists of quality couture.

Dirty Pretty Things

Shopping Paddington

This Paris-inspired boutique prides itself on its unique selection and the proof is in the stocking of billet-doux labels like the artistic Nick Cave-inspired Bella's Dead and the mischievously-monikered Burlesque-esque Buttress & Snatch.

Gallery Serpentine

Shopping Newtown

Goth it up by browsing through the clothing, art and accoutrements at the centre of Enmore's so-called ‘Gothic Mile' – and thanks to their excellent range of fetishwear and corsetry, you can comprehensively discover your dark side.


Love Rouge Boutique

Shopping Darlinghurst

Love (formerly Madame) Rouge Boutique is set over two floors, with luxurious lingerie at street level and a naughtier den full of delights upstairs. From sensual potions right through to the LELO range, a designer collection of "pleasure objects", you'll be sure to be spoiled for choice by what you find.

White Ivy

Shopping Double Bay

One of Sydney's most exclusive lingerie stores with a clientele list that in has boasted the diverse likes of Vivien Leigh and Queen Elizabeth II (yes, honestly), this Double Bay diamond is still a fairly well kept secret and it has been since it first opened its doors in the late 1940s. It's fair to say they know what's what when it comes to the art of underwear.
