For the fourth straight year, Unmentionable returns to the Doug Fir for a night of lovely models scantily cloaked in bits of lace, cotton, and satin. As Portland continues to sprout an impressive number of designers focused on the under layer, the lineup on Tuesday, February 9 promises a can’t-miss showcase for lingerie lovers. With newbies like VaVa Lingerie showing off their sexy bits and cute-sock-purveyor Sock it To Me debuting a new casual underwear line, as well as returning lines from Altar and Chubby Cartwheels, there’s something for everyone—including all you brides-to-be searching for that special something for your honeymoon or Valentine's Day.

The typically packed-to-the-gills show has a small number of lover-themed vendors on site, selling prezzies for Valentine’s Day (or “just because” gifts) from Missionary Chocolates, SheBop, and Time Warrior Valentines, making this an easy way to see, touch, and take home a number of pretty things.

If last year’s rowdy crowd was any indication, the show is likely to sell out, so snag your $12 advance ticket now
