Why such a small list? There are many others in town...

None of these.. Although it's not on Myrtle,Kohls is the best!!

No chains allowed, LOOP. If we missed any boutiques, let me know!

LOVE L&G. The owner always offers me a great deal on bundling items and they are just so sweet there! New items each week and I get so many compliments on what I wear. I love SUO too. Been a long time shopper there. Both L&G and SUO prices can't be beat.

I 'm pretty sure Michelle's has moved from East Olive to Myrtle.

Liked L&G but HATE their return policy. So would vote for them but all my friends have stopped shopping there because it's not "return" friendly. So SUO. LOVE Diggin 4 Daisies. We need MORE Eco-friendly places in Monrovia.

SUO is the only place for me! They have the cutest EVERYTHING!! The staff is SUPER friendly!! Why shop anywhere else?! ;)

I <3 SUO. there is no point in going anywhere else! here is why: mimmers is never open and the owner is rude. allure is ok, but their sierra madre store is better. jenni b is expensive, but she has some gorgeous stuff. forever modern is super cheap stuff. wear once and throw away. none of their clothing makes it through the washing machine and is still in one piece. CW/WOB caters to the older and specialty demographic. haven't made it to michelle's. i have no idea where it is. nor have i been to suburban martini. haven't found it yet. i'm sticking with SUO. i've been shopping there for years and always get compliments on everything. the clothes last through the washing machine, dry cleaner and rarely shrink or fade. the staff is so much fun and is always willing to go the extra mile for you. i even promote them at my charity events because they always donate product to raise money for local charities. they have 3 stores now and still family owned/operated. i wish the monrovia store had the hours of the location at the citadel! SUO has won me over, let's see if the others can woo me into spending my hard earned money at their stores!

I am a loyal SUO customer and have been for years. They have a great variety, dressy or casual, and great prices. The owners are very present and connected with their customers and their needs, requests, etc. SUO is truly a local gem and I will continue to shop there for years to come!

I love my SUO..They are my go to store for dressy or casual. Very unique clothing..I always get compliments anytime I wear somethn frm there. :)

Here's why it's got to be Wizard of Bras: There may be a handful of real "fitting school" bra stores in the entire state of California, but this one is the best, and we are SO LUCKY to have them right here. People drive hours to visit WoB! Our boutique regular clothing stores are nice, but if we didn't have WoB, many of us would be in big trouble!

It's unfortunate that most of these stores cater to VERY small women. I choose Creative Woman - a little something there for EVERYONE. I need specialty sized bras and have ALWAYS been able to find something there.

I used to Love Suo but now that i discovered L & G, i likr it better! Less pricy and more fashionista style! I will still go to Suo but L&G first! I love their service and deals.
Nathan McIntire (Editor) May 11, 2012 at 09:40 PM
Thanks everyone, please keep voting. Voting will close at 11:59 p.m. Saturday.

I like Michelle's (now on Myrtle--much easier to find!) and Angela's Closet--also right on Myrtle. I agree that SUO is a good shop but I tend to stick to Myrtle because it's closer for me. I LOVE the stuff at Jenni B but can't really afford that sort of splurge! I agree that the Mimmers owner is almost never there and rude when she is. What a turn-off. We are lucky to have such nice boutiques in our town and I believe it's VERY important to shop local.

Michelle's has moved to 519 S Myrtle Ave. Also, Suburban Martini is no longer in business, they were the shop replaced by Michelle's at 113 E Olive Ave. That storefront is vacant now.
