Since 1947, when Elizabeth “Betty” Harp opened the first Harp’s on Chene St. in Detroit, Harp’s Lingerie has been the place for expert fittings and one-on-one personal service. Following in their grandmother’s footsteps, Kim Hickson and Lisa Hardy Hamill, continue to honor that tradition in their Birmingham location. Harp’s Lingerie is like an “old-fashioned corset shop.” Their superbly trained sales staff have more than 100 years of combined experience in helping customers find the perfect lingerie for everyday, bridal, formal events, specialty items and just about anything women may need underneath. “We can disguise problem areas and literally change your shape with the right undergarments.”
Since as many as nine out of ten women wear incorrectly fitted bras, the difference a professional fitting makes can be absolutely uplifting in both appearance and mood! Hard to-fit sizes are Harp’s specialty. They stock the largest selection of styles and types of bras in Michigan – band sizes from 30 to 54, and cup sizes from AA to N. Their customers receive personal consultation and unsurpassed service.
For over 75 years they’ve specialized in lingerie, and have proudly earned the loyalty of generations of repeat customers who come from all over to get their expert advice. Mrs. Harp’s legacy of service and style continues, her goal was to make each customer leave feeling beautiful and special and that is still the goal today.
