Stacy, one of the owners of my favorite swimwear/lingerie boutique, posed the question, after she’d rung up my substantial purchase. Why do I love Soleil Toile in Westport? Because they carry a marvelous variety of swim separates and bras for women who can’t shop off the rack in department stores. And they take as much time as you need during fitting sessions. For the privilege, I’m willing to pay a premium. Continue reading
