Located in historic downtown Dayton, Trousseau is a special place where women are celebrated.

Featuring all women-owned intimate apparel brands, Trousseau (pronounced troo-sew) focuses on specialty accessories and lingerie made for women, by women, including the lgbtq+ NYC-based brand Play Out. The vision for the shop was born out of a need for a space where women of all body types and gender expressions in rural Willamette Valley can shop comfortably in a space that is affirming and empowering.

One of our most common questions is, “do you offer bra fittings?” YES! We offer fittings in a relaxed and comfortable environment and our staff is knowledgeable to provide bra consultations that are true to your size.
