Volia's... For Your Unmentionable Needs

Viola's, Yorkville's premier Lingerie Shop, has supplied bras, girdles, rear lifters, and other support products to the women in my family for 66 years! (anniversary sign's been in the window for six years) How do you think the ladies look so good in the old pictures?

Viola helped the girls keep it in, when they didn't want it out.

I remember being in the Five & Ten's candy aisle with Mom. She manhandled a giant bag of M&M's out of my hands and said to no one in particular, "Jeez! This bra's killing me!" I waved bye to the candy as she pushed Rory and me in the stroller a few stores down to Viola's for a purchase.

If you have unmentionable needs and hope to ever get that girlish figure back, you best get yourself to Viola's, tout suite! Their lingerie and hosiery sleep in fine boxes folded tidy like Mom folded your things in the small suitcase when you were young and she was sending you away with a big smile on her face. Don't you miss that smile? Well, if you go to Viola's and the ladder's in place, and the lady goes up the ladder, and pulls down a few boxes and opens them carefully for you, the memories will flood back. Yes, they will. Viola's!  66 proud years protecting, hiding and enhancing Yorkville figures.

If you like my work check out my memoir, "I Hate the Dallas Cowboys - tales of a scrappy New York boyhood." Available at Logos Book Store.

The book has 120 Amazon five star reviews out of 120 total reviews posted. We're pitching a perfect game. My old world echoes TV's "The Wonder Years" ~ just add taverns, subways and Checker cabs.
