The area
Address
Neighborhood: Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
How to get there

I happened to have had the honor of being the "ghost" designer for the Frederick's of Hollywood Lingerie Museum. Many of the non-celebrity garments featured were actually made by me in the late 80s.
It was a delightful project for me, as some 10 years earlier I had worked for a supplier of Frederick's as a lingerie designer, and some of the garments in the museum actually came from my own archives. In addition, I re-created styles from past decades, artificially aging fabrics and trims.
Another interesting task was to repair and restore some of the celebrity garments, such as a silk peignoir worn by Judy Garland. She was apparently so tiny and fine boned that her garment was like a tent on the smallest dress mannequin I could dig up.
I would recommend the museum if you'll be in Hollywood anyway, but it is not a huge display such as other dedicated museums might have. There are maybe 40 garments on display at any given time.

They have a small section of garments worn by famous celebrities upstairs, but it is a place visited by many people who pose outside its windows to be photographed.

Maybe because the guide books mention that its worth a look.

As you expect the quality of the lingerie is good, but the surprise is the prices. Much more reasonable than its Secret rival.

I personally enjoyed my visit to the Frederick's Lingerie Museum. It amazes me that sex appeal has been around for centuries! I enjoyed seeing some of the celebrities lingerie styles. I was very surprised that their prices were quiet reasonable and brought a piece home to model for my husband! Don't just stand outside or be shy, go in and see for yourself!

This place gives new meaning to the concept of tacky. And of trashy. And of tasteless. Not sexy. Not sensual. Just gross. Could be So.Much.More.

Since we last visited we noticed that the Frederick's Lingerie outlets are more widely available but this one is more than a store giving you an opportunity to see what type of lingerie celebrities wore in the museum section. Its less tackier than it sounds.
