Located in the old town, the shop is a time capsule of days gone by when Toulon was a vibrant and louche navy port and "Toulonaise" women looked after their curves with gusto. Selling lingerie from Aubade, Bolero, Lou, Lejaby, Chantelle, Triumph, Jocelyne also stocks a selection of swimwear from Rasurel, Roidal, Freya and various others.
Jocelyne who runs the epinonous shop, is a hands-on sales person. She will size you up, produce suitable styles in the correct cup version, adjust your breasts, pull and push elastics to ensure the right fit. She has run the store for 25 years, taking over from the previous owner of 50 years. With only 2 owners in 75 years, this is a specialist shop if there ever was one, dedicated to serving a discerning clientele with friendly but direct advice. The lady who was told her real size was a 44H, not a 36D was kindly told to sit down before learning the truth.
She knows her stuff and if her taste can be frillier than mine, I recognize her expertise. Her motto is to make women feel good about themselves. "The right swimsuit will find you" she says. With her help, it did!
