Brick and Mortar store for Bralet

What is a good store in Seattle that sells quality undergarments? Specifically bralets? Less heteronormative, more body positive the better. Preferably in the city.

Hmm, this is an interesting question because bralets are not really something you associate with 'quality' -- like, their selling point seems is that they don't actually do anything (slate).

As for body positivity and non-heteronormativity: one way to achieve this is by going to Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, etc. -- low-touch stores where clothes for all genders are sold and staff members aren't paid enough to give a damn who's trying on what. I don't know of any specialty lingerie stores that cater to non-traditional wearers.

Title 9 Sports sells no-frills bralettes; the staff at their Green Lake store (7000 Woodlawn Ave NE) get good reviews on Yelp for being friendly, knowledgeable and happy to answer questions.

FYI: I can't vouch for the bricks and mortar experience, as I live in the Atlantic Northeast and have never visited the PNW. That said, I'm a satisfied repeat mail order customer of Title 9 (including sports bras, tho they have everyday bras too).

I've been to the Title 9 Store near Greenlake to buy bras and it was fine; it wasn't a entirely thoughtless-comment-free experience but it was better than any department store bra shopping experience I've had, and I will probably go back next time I'm in the market for that kind of bra. I'm a straight cis woman and don't have any body issues worth mentioning, so take my recommendation with many grains of salt.

Oh, I had a look around today, and GAP has a TON of lacy bralettes on sale, upstairs to the left, in the same nook as the women's activewear.
