Publisher's Summary

There are some life-long quests that all women have in common: meaningful work, true love, and a bra that doesn't leave red marks on your skin.

In the comfort of her Brooklyn basement bra shop, Sima Goldner teaches other women to appreciate their bodies, but feels betrayed by her own. Shamed by her infertility and by a secret from her youth, she has given up on happiness and surrendered to a bitter marriage. But then Timna, a young Israeli with enviable cleavage, becomes the shop seamstress. As the two serve the colorful customers of their Orthodox Jewish neighborhood, Sima finds herself awakened to adventure and romance. Years after giving up on their marriage, Sima and her husband, Lev, must decide if what they have is worth saving.

With a gracefulness evocative of Amy Bloom and Alice McDermott, prize-winning writer Ilana Stanger-Ross has created a secret underground New York sisterhood where women of every shape and creed can come to share their milestones, laughter, loves, and losses against a backdrop of discount lingerie.

    "Difficult Listening"

    I thought the story was interesting, but the narrator spoke in a breathy, low voice that was hard to hear. Sometimes the volume was uneven---straining to listen----then having it blasted out of the speakers! Disconcerting.

    "Sima's Undergarments for Women"

    Save space in your life for this wonderful book. You won't want to put this book down but the good part is you have something great comeback to.
    Enjoy this one to the end because when you get to the end there really is one , something I find rare in books these days.

    "disappointment"
    What disappointed you about Sima's Undergarments for Women?

    This story is so painfully slow that I gave up on finishing it. I usually enjoy Jewish fiction but this didn't hold my interest.


    Has Sima's Undergarments for Women turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Try Tova Mirvis for a better listening experience.

    "Couldn't finish it"

    I tried, but the way it was read- the voice- it just couldn't keep me interested,
