There is one place in the Fashion District where costumes are a year-round staple. Sitting on the corner at 801 S. Los Angeles. St., Beverly Hills Hosiery has catered to the entertainment and theater industries and costume enthusiasts alike for over 75 years. What sets Beverly Hills Hosiery apart from any lingerie or costume store Downtown isn’t the recognizable Leg Avenue costume sets or the array of bright colored tutus. Here you’ll find custom pieces that are made in LA: custom made petticoats like the ones you’ve seen on Dancing with the Stars (they shop here too), and hand made, vintage-inspired “Sissy Pants” for Can-Can girl outfits.
The selection of costume accessories, masquerade masks, sequin shorts and vests, stockings, hosiery, lingerie, corsets, costume shoes, wings, and wigs is unlike anything else you will find in DTLA. Along with the costumes and dance wear you’ll find vintage lingerie, the likes of Rago shapewear and lingerie. They carry plus size too!
Feeling overwhelmed with options? Bring in a photo of what you’re looking for and they’ll help you find it. If they don’t have the color or size you need, they will order it and have it to you in two days time. They take their customer service seriously, just look at their Yelp page.
