Making the most of a summer that’s as short as it is sweet is a strong Canadian tradition. And we all know that when you only have a couple of months of nice weather to enjoy, how you style them is critical. For a summer well-spent at the cottage or the beach, nothing beats sporting the best in homegrown swim and loungewear for women and men from Montreal’s Shan.
Shopping for lingerie and swimwear is always deeply personal, and sometimes daunting, particularly for post-surgical clients. We asked three women to share their real experiences at Melmira, and how they found exactly the right support in more ways than one.
At Melmira, we love the look of bronzed skin but prefer to get our glow from a bottle and not from harmful UV rays. For tanning newbies, or those who want a glow they can build on, the Gradual Tan line from James Read is the one to try.
James Read Tan combines the benefits of luxury skincare with a natural golden tan to suit all skin tones. The products are easy to apply and are all about making your skin look and feel beautiful.
As a professional spray tan artist (and a recognized influencer in tanning trends worldwide), James has worked with some extraordinary people, from top photographers and designers like Tom Ford, Burberry and Sophia Webster, not to mention Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington Whitely, Ellie Goulding and Mariah Carey. Here are the details on our team’s two fav products available at Melmira!

Melmira got an extra-special glimpse of behind the scenes at Shan headquarters last summer, with Chantal Levesque, designer and owner of the luxury swim brand. A unique opportunity to chat fit and fabric with the expert herself…
Chantal shared with us her inspiration behind the 2019 collection, reviewing her Classique fits and introducing many new shapes, styles, and colours in both bathers and covers. From her sleek and elegant Far West to her modern and edgy Do You Think I’m Sexy, to her fresh and feminine Pop Art, to her dramatic and artsy Mosaic…not to mention the new solids from the Techno-graph contouring structure collection! It was impossible to choose a favourite, and as usual, we selected several from every group.
Shan’s fashionable style, high-end quality and flattering fit truly make her the best the world has to offer! Sharing a passion for swimwear (and being Canadian!), Melmira feels a very close connection with Shan and loves wardrobing our clients head-to-toe with their pieces!
Merci Beaucoup Shan for all that you do!
Confession: I look forward to shopping for a new bra about as much as I like going to the dentist. But there comes a time to face our fears—and judging by the motley crew of sad stretched-out bras in my lingerie drawer, the clock has struck done. It was time to bring in the pros, so I booked an appointment at Melmira.
