Canadian designer Ashley Eady evokes vintage glamour with her flattering suits that bring sexy back! Nestled away in the small village of Rosseau, located in beautiful Muskoka cottage country is Eady’s itsy-bitsy store Teeny Weeny Bikini, and bathing suits (not just bikinis) are the stores’ specialty, with suits to fit women of all body types. She even calls them "love handle free," meaning the design actually holds in the stomach, holding down the paunch and creating a smooth look.
