“She wore an itsy bitsy, teeny weeny, yellow polka dot bikini…” We think if she could pull that look off, good for her! But as we all know, not all women are itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikini types. So where does one find a bathing suit for all shapes, sizes and purposes? Where can you find something fun for the beach, sturdy for water aerobics or with that extra specialty fit you require? Wishes & Co. on White Rock beach – that’s where!
We are highly impressed with the swimwear selection at Wishes & Co. They carry over 50 brands of swimwear and Owner Wendy Hewitt estimates approximately 10,000 pieces are in store at any time. The selection at Wishes & Co. is fantastic and new stock arrives every week. They carry a great line of utilitarian (but still stylish) polyester suits, perfect for aquasize or swimming, in sizes 4 – 26. One pieces, tankinis, bikinis, sundresses, wraps, hats, footwear, goggles, ear and nose plugs, beach bags, towels… you can suit yourself up for a perfect local beach day or foreign vacation. Wishes & Co. has a huge selection of separates that fit up to HH cup. The separates are perfect for women who are a different size and shape on the top and bottom, something that is not uncommon.
Suits for long torso, post-masectomy and bra-size swimwear (up to HH cup) are also available at Wishes & Co. Their tagline reads “If you don’t find a swimsuit here… you won’t find one!” It’s true, there is something for every taste and shape at this swimwear shop located on White Rock beach. Having said that, we must compliment their staff. Their gentle honesty is very much appreciated as they will really help you find a proper fit for your body shape. And if by chance there isn’t a good fit for you that day, they’ll tell you!
Have you ever purchased an item of clothing or a bathing suit, based on the praises of the sales staff at the store you were shopping at? Then when you get home and put it on, you are uncomfortable and know that it’s sticking to all the wrong parts of your figure? Yeah, us too. Wendy had a similar experience several years ago as well and recalls it with a grimace. Awful? Indeed, but it helped shape her model of customer service for this awesome shop. Wendy and her staff are so very helpful and will honestly help you find something flattering for you.
Because of their vast selection and friendly service, Wishes & Co. is a well-known destination for locals and visitors alike. Hearing about their specialty suits, visitors seeking specific types of swimwear arrive from all over the province. Open 364 days per year, customers are able to visit this Fraser Valley bathing suit shop both for their summer beach days and winter vacation swimwear. Pretty handy – we’ve tried to find a good bathing suit in the winter months and it’s quite the challenge. Wishes & Co. also carries a selection of men’s polyester trunks and children’s performance suits.
