Our Story

It all began with a small rack of swimwear in a fabric shop... The Swimwear Galore story began 35 years ago with a small rack of swimwear being sold from the family run fabric shop in Fitzroy, Victoria.

Jan Ingersole founded the business when she saw a gap in the market for good quality swimwear and soon after ‘The Stretch Shop’, as Swimwear Galore was called in those days, became the go-to place in Melbourne for swimwear. Although, quickly swimwear took over fabric and Swimwear Galore was officially born!

Swimwear Galore Today

In the 2000’s Jan’s 3 children, Andrew, Kelly and Caz joined the business and took Swimwear Galore to where it is today - 7 retail stores across Victoria, Australia and a booming online store as well. Delivering excellent swimwear nationally and internationally, they carried on their family legacy of creating swimwear tailored just for YOU.
