We are Maggie and Lily of Thistle & Spire a Brooklyn based lingerie company supporting women in pushing boundaries, breaking rules, and melting hearts.
We have always believed that lingerie is for yourself. As awkward teens growing up we found power in lingerie. That tiny secret to give you an extra confidence boost. No one was interested in kissing us as teens, let alone see our underwear! So lingerie became truly for us. We juxtapose luxe fabrics and alluring architectural details mirroring the mult-faceted sides of being a woman. After all, it’s what’s on the inside that counts ;)
