About Us

For forty years Carvèll lingerie & swimwear, previously Mystique, occupied the ground floor of Abbotts House, an iconic Tudor townhouse built in 1459. 

In 2024, Carvèll lingerie & swimwear joined its sister brand in The Square. Though the location has changed, the ethos of the brand remains; to offer an incredible fitting experience in a relaxed yet professional environment, ensuring our customers leave feeling amazing in their own skin.

Previously a primary school teacher, I became the new owner in April 2019. When the opportunity arose to buy the shop, I was excited, having been a regular customer for many years. I had always dreamed of being my own boss and owning a lingerie business, and the dream came true. Fashion and design have always been a big focus in my life

Every effort is put into making sure that the stock we have is attractively displayed with a price to suit all pockets.

It has been wonderful choosing my own stock, serving lovely customers who appreciate service, style and quality.

We always ensure that your items are beautifully wrapped taking a sustainable approach to packaging, a free gift-wrapping service all year round, whatever the occasion.

The ranges stocked cater for everyone, from the smallest to the fullest bust, your first bra, nursing, mastectomy. We stock swimwear, cover-ups, day, leisure and nightwear.
