About Bare Necessities

Bare Necessities Marple first opened its doors in October 1986 as the first independent specialist lingerie store in this lovely area of the Cheshire on the border with Derbyshire. We also have many visitors holidaying in the Peak District.

Over the years we have developed a large customer base, broadening our horizons to include north and south Manchester and Cheshire .

Many customers who have moved further afield still visit us and can now take advantage of our website! Remember, we are only a telephone call away!

In October 2012, Bare Necessities opened in the beautiful historic town of Knutsford, Cheshire! We welcome you to both our stores!
