Hope Chest curates a trove of designer intimates that sensuously shelter curves and help to shape physiques. Boutique attendants measure figures to unite AA- to H-cup bras and band sizes ranging from 30 to 42 with their convex counterparts. Independent, multi-lingual panties, hose, camisoles, and shapewear are recruited from European and American lines such as Chantelle, Wolford, and Fleur't. With seamless underwire cups and front closures, Le Mystère's signature y-back bras modestly mask their structures ($60+). Organic-cotton Hanky Panky thongs ($18 for one, $48 for three) compete for seats with Cosabella hot pants and bikinis in games of musical chairs ($22+), and Spanx stockings and leggings sculpt and cinch below the belt ($26+). Pajama sets round out the collection with varying degrees of sultriness, as camisoles provide the missing link in the complex evolution of underwear to outerwear.

The staff at New Balance of Philadelphia & South Jersey isn't concerned with simply selling shoes—their mission is to pair customers with the footwear that will carry them comfortably through life’s arduous steps. Understanding that an ill-fitting pair of athletic shoes can cause pain to joints and potentially damage knees, hips, and the back, associates measure the length and width of each client's foot and conduct a gait analysis to chart the trajectory of their stride when walking normally or running through ball pits. The data are collected to help the staff match clients with their ideal shoe, keeping them running longer and looking good while doing so.

After moving from London to Philadelphia, Elena Brennan needed a way to fulfill her desire for hard-to-find designer shoes without hopping a transatlantic flight back home. In 2007, she stashed away her aviation goggles in favor of opening Bus Stop, a boutique specializing in stylish kicks and women's apparel. The quirky spot carries lesser-known brands, such as Jeffrey Campbell, J Shoes, and FarylRobin, as well as fashionable favorites from Toms and Fluevog.

White walls outfitted with monochromatic shelves pull shoppers' attention towards a collection of shoes so eclectic it helped Bus Stop win an award for best women's shoe store in 2008 from Philadelphia magazine. Antique wooden tables heave under the weight of handmade accessories and apparel from local and national designers and wayward elephants that thought they smelled peanuts. This Fabric Row boutique also holds monthly events that showcase the work of emerging artists and local fashionistas.
