Charlotte Nix, manager of Revelation in Fit, introduces the bra library.

At Revelation in Fit, the new lingerie store that opened last week at 386 State St. in Los Altos, the bras in the showroom – seasonal and, in some cases, rather fashion forward – are only the tip of the bosom iceberg.

The Los Altos location includes an appropriately drape-y lounge area studded with fitting rooms, but don’t stop there. The real surprise remains cloaked behind a curtain even farther back in the shop – a voluminous and workmanlike “library” of approximately 2,500 bras that stretches the length of the store. Revelation welcomes walk-ins to browse in front or try an entire fitting, but also book appointments in advance to guarantee a leisurely consultation. Pieces range from $40 to $190.

Sarah Jones retired last month after a long and somewhat unexpected career.

As Sarah Jones approached her college years, her parents had high expectations. Her father, partner in a law firm, expected the Castilleja School grad to choose a lucrative career path, in business or law, perhaps.

Instead, Jones was an art major whose direction in life was at a crossroads.
