Thanks! I think I'll check it out!

Also, which is the better Beyond Retro location, East or West End?

Shoreditch, just near Hoxton Square is where the Start Boutiques are.

Does anyone know a good place for bra fitting? I've read that Rigby & Peller was good, but I'm not too sure as I've never been there. Thank you!

^ Rigby & Peller is actually the Queens lingerie outfitter! Although I don't own any myself, they are excellently made and are superb fitters. That said they do tend to be more traditional styles, but sometimes they do lovely, young designs. Selfridges also has an excellent lingerie section with all the best designer brands, and the staff are always happy to help fit.

Hope that helps

Don't you think its a bit cringeworthy for the Queen that everyone knows who makes her lingerie? I tend to think its a personal thing, not something I would want to be known with the general public. Although, I suppose it is quiet wonderful for Rigby & Peller, I bet they get some business from this.

Haha, this never occurred to me, but you're right! Though I think it's just standard to be honest - every business that supplies to the Queen or certain other members of the royal family receives a 'by royal appointment' status (from tea to soap).

definitely START in rivington street (shoreditch)...they've got three different shops in the street, men's, women's and something else?

hoxton boutique just on the corner of old street and hoxton street also sells designers, but it's not as good as START. their selection is amazing.

i suggest walking around the little streets of hoxton, i'm sure there's more little shops in there
