The Necessary Secret? We’ve been the premier lingerie shop in the Greater Baltimore area offering professional bra fittings for over 30 years.

Every woman’s body is unique.  We strive of offer a wide range of sizes, including many that are impossible to find in department and mall stores.  Necessary Secrets proudly offers the best selection of brands, styles, and sizes in the Greater Baltimore Area.  Our experienced buyers seek out the best bras from brands reputed for their quality and design while keeping your wardrobe varied.

Whether you need a bra to wear under a simple white T-shirt or a sexier lacy bra to wear under that little black dress, we’ve got you covered…and properly supported!


T-Shirt bras come in a variety of cuts and colors, but all share one thing in common: a smooth appeal!  A T-shirt bra is all about function. This is not always a sexy bra, but wearing it under a clingy T-shirt can make you look sexy—and that’s what’s really important, right? We all know about the horrors of VPL (visible panty line). The T-shirt bra is the solution to VBL: visible bra line. A good T-shirt bra has seamless fabric and no ornamentation, which means it won’t show through your favorite tee or create distracting lumps and bumps. With brands like Chantelle, Fantasie, Simone Perele, & Wacoal, you’ll be able to wear your tightest, clingiest T-shirts with no worries.


Half the coverage for twice the fun! Available lacy or smooth,  most “demi” or half cups are designed with a with a slight tilt that pushes the breasts toward the center to display just the right amount of cleavage. They feature wide-set straps that create a square neckline, offering you strong support in the band but not getting in the way of your favorite low-cut, scoop neck or bateau tops. Each season our buyers handpick a variety of bra styles from Chantelle, Fantasie, Le Mystere, Panache, & Simone Perele in the most current fashion colors so that your underwear can be just as current as your outerwear!


Make the most of what you’ve got (or what you’d like to have) with a bust-boosting push-up bra! There are many different types of push-up bras, all with varying levels of lift, fullness, and cleavage.  Whether you want to add a little lift or amp the oomph factor up to full blast, there’s a great push-up bra to do it. Let us guide you through styles from b.tempt’d, Chantelle, Natori, On Gossamer, and more.


While many department and mall shops carry up to a DD or DDD size bra cup, we believe that’s just where the fun begins! Many of our brands, including Anita, Elomi, Fantasie, Freya, and Goddess specialize in a large range of sizes.  Whether you need a full band and small cup, a small band and full cup, or a full band and full cup–hard to find bra sizes are no problem to find here.

You can have it all with both the support you need, and the beauty you want, up to a N cup!


We promise you that a budge-proof strapless bra does exist! There’s nothing worse than a bra strap getting in the way of a beautiful dress or tugging at your top all night long—well okay, we’re sure there is, but you still want to look and feel your best when wearing your finest gowns and garments. Here at Necessary Secrets of Green Spring Station we carry an extensive range of strapless and convertible bras from Natori, Fantasie, Wacoal, and Simone Perele (just to name a few)  to fit and support women of all shapes and sizes.

Looking for something to fit under a specific dress? Bring it in and we’ll make sure you get the look (and fit) you want.


Bye-Bye Bra Straps! It doesn’t matter if they’re lacy or racy–having your bra straps on display is almost always a no-no. Ultra-comfy racerback bras by Chantelle, Josie by Natori, Natori, and Spanx will keep your look classy and your straps hidden (and up on your shoulders)!


No wires, no problem!  Even when properly sized, the underwire remains the bane of millions of women everywhere. We feel your pain, and we’re here to help!  We carry styles from Anita, Coobie, Chantelle, Elomi, Goddess, Natori, Spanx, and Wacoal that support without binding and  give your cleavage a great shape without the extra poke!
