About us

The Lingerie Bar was purchased by Nan Young in 1960 from Jeff and Nester Bailey, and operated at 35a Commercial Road, Port Augusta, SA 5700 where it remains to this day.

Christine McHugh then purchased the business in 1986. Along with her sister Jossie Pollard and her daughter Hayley McHugh and other dedicated staff, they have done a great job by going above and beyond in delivering excellent service to the community. Christine has retired in October 2020.

Current owner, Quinnie Henley, is continuing the spirit.

Though must people love the look and feel of lingerie, many women regard their bras as either a necessary evil (the strap ‘em up and tie ‘em down approach) or a piece of cosmetic frippery - pleasant enough for the necessary effect, but really a bit of a bore (when in doubt, take it off). But recent research suggests there are definite health and posture reasons why a supportive, well-fitted bra is a must.

The Lingerie Bar, the longest - serving in South Australia and largest specialist lingerie shop in the area, boasts the largest sleepwear range to cater for most ages. Our product range does not stop with bras but a wide range of quality sleepwear, sports, maternity bras, swimwear, lingerie, mastectomy and prothesis, from size 6 to 30, A to J cup.

We are now not only a walk-in store but also an online shop hopefully serving Australia wide. Our aim is simple to offer the latest in big brands that you know and trust, with the convenience of being delivered direct to your door.
