Need a little help finding that perfect figure-flattering bather to suit your lifestyle? Turn to the professional consultants at this uptown boutique who work one-on-one with customers to help them navigate the sometimes-intimidating world of swimwear. This women’s-only shop carries an array of shapes and styles that range from sizes 4 to 26 and 30AA to 52H cup.
