Minnesota’s Nani Nalu Beachwear Boutique is coming to the Country Club Plaza.

The designer swimwear store, at 421 W. 47th St., is scheduled to open by early December.

Owner Jennifer Cermak got the idea for the store after a swimsuit shopping experience at a department store left her in tears. Her swimsuit store, which opened in Minneapolis in 2006, was designed to offer a comfortable and supportive environment, as well as the best fitting and most flattering styles.

The Plaza store will carry more than 25 brands ranging from $100 to $350 per swimsuit. Styles will include bikinis and tankinis sold as separates, as well as one-piece swimsuits. Sizes will range from 0-to-18, and A to G cup.

Nani Nalu will offer appointments for one-on-one fitting services and will take some special orders if a swimsuit size, style or color is not carried in the Plaza store.
