Finding the perfect swimsuit ready for those warm summer days may be a daunting thought, but the expert team at The Fitting Room is here to help.
With two welcoming stores located on Fendalton Road and Colombo Street (opposite The Colombo), you’ll find it easier than you anticipated. The styles displayed on the shop floor are only a small taster of what’s available in the stockroom, where there’s many hidden treasures and extra sizes. Ask one of the friendly fitters for advice and they can match you with your perfect swimwear.
You’ll find an endless range of quality, specialist international brands in a myriad of colours, styles and designs, like Seafolly Australia, Jets and Jantzen. Options also include shelf support and pre-pocketing for prosthesis. They cater to all ages, preferences and sizes, so everyone walks away feeling fantastic for the poolside. Although The Fitting Room stocks swimwear in all sizes, their specialty in lingerie is fuller-cup sizes (C-K), and also bras and swimwear for women with prostheses who’ve had mastectomy surgery.
The friendly team at the Fendalton store offer a late night on Thursdays (5:30pm-8pm, by appointment only), and there’s also a huge range available on The Fitting Room’s online store.
Owner Deborah Lewthwaite says her team is passionate about providing fabulous fitting bras and swimwear and making it an easy and fun shopping experience. “Our range of styles is constantly being honed as we trial new brands and find new winners. Prima Donna, a luxury Belgian brand, is one we’ve recently acquired, and customers love it so much we’re ordering more styles each season.”
