Vibrant and warm, The Fitting Room is as overflowing with enticements for your embonpoint as ever, plus owner Deborah Lewthwaite has doubled the temptation with the opening of her second store in Colombo Street.
We are all dreaming of warmth at midwinter, and whether your getaway will see you reclining in the islands, or enjoying a local therapeutic soak in thermal pools, there is a swimsuit or bikini to flatter and to fall in love with. “We have something for everyone in swimwear,” Deborah says.
In sizes 8-26 with plenty of choices in size 26, all the swimwear has decent support. There are bikinis for the young and larger busted and the young at heart, with cup sizes up to J. There are bright, on-trend colour options and a large range in classic black and white. “We handpick our styles and often try the samples on ourselves to make sure they work,” she adds.
Jets and Seafolly are always in demand, while chlorine-resistant ranges are popular for those with a spa pool habit and the athletic length swimmers. Fabulous value range Zoggs and Poolproof, and the Miracle Suit (‘look 10lbs lighter in 10 seconds’ – yes please!) are new in store.
There is a gorgeous selection of lingerie in C-K cups, with long established luxury Belgian brand PrimaDonna now available. If you spot something on the website, phone first as not every style/size/colour may be in both stores at once. The Fitting Room is in Fendalton Road and Colombo Street opposite The Colombo entrance.
