Whether you’re a pre-teen getting your first bra (gah!) or are a perfectly symmetrical 36C, shopping for lingerie can be a traumatic experience. Women fear trying on bras almost as much as jeans and bathing suits because nothing ever seems to fit quite right. Thankfully, Philadelphia has a number of lingerie boutiques that specialize in finding the perfect fit for every woman. These boutiques offer personal fitting sessions with experts who can find you undergarments you’ll love to wear.
