Burgess Department store, Athlone has holiday shopping sorted from swimwear to sun-dresses to luggage. The popular midlands department store stocks a wide range of swimwear – bikinis, swimsuits, tankinis and cover-ups – for effortless and flattering poolside style. The collection includes the Lepel, Panache and After Eden labels, with all swimwear pieces offered in bra-sizes ensuring great fit and comfort.
“Sometimes it can be tricky to find a bikini or swimsuit that fits perfectly,” said Veronica McDonald, Burgess swimwear buyer, “We offer a fitting service – as we do in our lingerie department – to help women choose the ideal fitting swimwear.”
“Swimsuits have definitely made a come-back and offer a smart, stylish alternative to the itsy bitsy bikini,” continued Veronica. “We have a great collection that really flatter – we have a brilliant swimsuit with a control panel from Fantasie. More casual tankinis are extremely popular at present. Complete the look with a pretty cover-up to bring you from hotel room, to poolside to café bar.”
Beach bags are great carry-alls – don’t forget sun protection cream, sun glasses and a sun hat! Burgess stock a great selection from the Joules label in a range of warm, summery colours.
“It’s a good idea to invest in a pretty, lightweight summer dress that will see you through sunny days and balmy nights. We have some gorgeous luxe linen options from Gerry Weber, Eden Row and Precis. Complete with a pair of comfortable Carl Scarpa sandals – either flat or with a heel – perfect for sauntering through the local markets or shops,” said Veronica.
Burgess stocks a range of quality luggage from Samsonite, Reisenthal and American Tourister to get holiday wardrobes safely to and from your holiday destination.
