Where to Last-Minute Shop for Sexy Lingerie in Philly

Plus: The pop-up shop that you don’t want to miss.

If simply walking past Victoria’s Secret in the mall gives you anxiety (let alone shopping for intimates with middle-aged men milling about), you’re not alone. In fact, you’ve been doing it all wrong. Don’t let the McDonalds of lingerie fool you – shopping for intimates can be empowering, super fun, and downright sexy. After all, that’s the point of wearing racy little numbers, right? In honor of this weekend’s most romantic holiday, we’ve compiled a list of the six best lingerie stores in Philadelphia. From tucked-away, appointment-only boutiques to help outfit you with the perfect bra to pop-up shops with luxurious lace teddies, this city has it all. Find out where to start shopping for lingerie the grownup way.

Anya Lust pop-up shop, Hotel Monaco
ICYMI, this luxury lingerie brand we featured last week is a Philly-based e-commerce boutique that carries a curated selection intimates from around the world. Today only, Anya Lust is holding a pop-up shop at the Hotel Monaco, with all merchandise ten percent off. Make a beeline for this pop-up if you lean more towards naughty over nice in the bedroom.

Geisha House, Old City
They carry Skivvies. Need we say more? Go here for awesome bras and bralettes that were simply made to peek out here and there. We’re talking scalloped baroque lace in fun colors, daisy appliqués and gorgeous laced racerbacks.

Anthropologie, Rittenhouse
For the greatest chemises and bodysuits you could ever want, look no further than Anthro. Whether airy florals or black lace are more your style, you’ll find amazing pieces here that offer more coverage than your classic bra-and-undies combo.

Coeur Lingerie, Rittenhouse
This is the place to go for a personalized shopping experience, starting with the doorbell you have to ring just to get inside the shop. With only two fitting rooms on opposite ends of the store, this navy blue-walled gem of a shop will deliver on whatever look you’re going for. Be sure to get a glimpse of their infamous toy closet before you check out.

Sweet Blossoms, Doylestown
This Main Street boutique carries classic intimates, but the real star of the show is their comfy PJ selection. Head here for cozy robes, printed pajama pants, and UGG loungewear perfect for snuggling.

Hope Chest, Rittenhouse
This store has the vintage-and-pastel feel of the dream closet you never had, and is stocked with the most gorgeous selection of lacy, strappy, fringe-y bras in all sizes (seriously, they carry AA to H).
