What makes it a Rhody Gem?

For decades, Wayland Square has been a destination for specialty shopping, and a mainstay in that classic mix is Mrs. Robinson. Since purchasing the women-owned business named for the Simon & Garfunkel tune in the 1980s, Melanie Elman has continued to offer pajamas, nightgowns, and more, along with bra fitting, no appointment necessary. The boutique carries both European and domestic brands and is an exclusive local provider for some of the best names in the industry. Getting married or know someone who is? Mrs. Robinson has a unique selection of peignoir sets and bridal accessories. Spring lines include slip dress chemises and colorful robes. Whether you’re coming in for your first bra or a longtime wearer tired of grabbing ill-fitting models off the rack at big box stores, Elman’s mission is to make you feel confident, comfortable, and experience the luxury of shopping for fine lingerie. “Thank you to our generations of customers. We love being a part of your lives,” says Elman. “And, to anyone who hasn’t been in yet, we can’t wait to meet you soon!”
