It was just a year ago that Expect Lace opened its doors in Philadelphia. Twelve months later, it’s still at the top of my list of the best lingerie store in the city. It is the only lingerie store in the city to offer cup sizes up to J cup and offersTommy Johns for men. With over 12 years experience in the lingerie industry, Shaw Lewis has a resume that includes stints at Nordstrom’s and as well as an expert Bra Fitter / Store Manager at several other high end lingerie shops. Shaw hopes that her 3-story shop becomes a one stop shop for both men and women, and it’s quickly becoming that.
Expect Lace celebrated their anniversary earlier this month, hosting a “Women’s in Lingerie” party on May 4th. A huge supporter of Madalynne Intimates since it opened, I was honored to be there and celebrate. A few other local brands attended – Taryn Winters, Loulette Lingerie, and Kaki Intimates. We lucked out with the weather that Saturday – there were tons of people out and about on Main Street, stopping in for a bra fitting, scoping out our trunk shows, and overall, getting their lingerie on!
A huge congrats to Shaw – I know you’ll make it to year 2, 3, 4…!
