The stretch of Michigan Avenue bounded by Oak Street to the north and the Chicago River to the south, is the city’s largest retail district and an upscale shopping mecca for city and suburban dwellers alike. Real estate mogul Arthur Rubloff nicknamed this district the Magnificent Mile in the 1940s, and one of its resident skyscrapers, the John Hancock, was at one time the tallest building in the world. If you’re looking for the best lingerie stores in Chicago, look no further than the boutiques along “Boul Mich” or its adjacent city blocks.
