How can you get a perfect fit with swimwear every time?
To fit or not to fit...
I've got good news and I've got bad news. If you're like me, you probably only like to hear the good news. In that case, I'll give you the bad news first: Unless you're 100% familiar with a line, you're not going to get a perfect fit when shopping online. Even my friends who have shopped Pualani for 17+ years have to make an occasional exchange when they buy from the website.
Your question is valid: WHY?
Our four-way stretch fabrics come from various sources: Spain, Italy, Colombia, Turkey. Each manufacturer has a unique knit and as a result, the stretch varies from print to print in our suits. This means that it will fit your individual curves differently. Also, some of our styles might have better coverage when you choose a slightly larger or smaller size than you normally would.
Now for the good news: Most of the time, our fit is consistent. Regardless of if you need to go up or down a size, you can always count on Pualani for quality. For you Cyber shoppers, we usually make a recommendation on the page if this is the case. The best news of all is that we have brick-and-mortar stores to pop in and you can try things on. Here's where to find us: LOCATIONS
Look forward to more stores opening in 2018!
