A Newcastle icon since the 1950’s... rumour has it that Carla Swimwear sold one of the first bikinis in Australia! We understand that women sometimes need a little extra help in shaping and flattering the body so we scout Australia & the world to bring our customers swimmers representing the highest quality, trends, specialty fits, practicality & affordability.
We look for easy options to help you pack a holiday suitcase, or your beach bag for your local beach. We look for long lasting styles for aqua aerobics or hydrotherapy or stunning pieces that will make your honeymoon or romantic getaway unforgettable.
Stocking only the best brands, including Seafolly, Sunseeker, Milea, Jets, Camilla, Sunflair, Jantzen, Miraclesuit, Baku, Ipanema, Reef and many others, our customers are always top of mind for us and we are always on the look out for ways to bring you more choice, variety in styling and selection of fits to make it easier for you to look and feel fantastic every day of the year.
For generations we have been Australian family owned & operated offering not only the knowledge and experience in fitting women and finding the perfect swimmers for your body type but also in forecasting trends, driving change through the industry and exploring what more we can do to enhance our customers lives. We have loved being a part of your lives for so long and will continue to work hard to ensure you have amazing experiences with us in our stores as well as in our swimmers and clothing.
Live life. Carla Swimwear.

HELEN NICOLA, DIRECTOR OF CARLA SWIMWEAR
For nearly six decades Carla Swimwear has remained an institution for lovers of the sun in Newcastle. So if anyone knows swimwear, it’s Helen Nicola. She’s lived and breathed it since she was a girl and took over the helm of her family’s four stores from her mother in 2003. Today, as we chat to her in her Mediterranean-inspired home she shares with her husband, Leo, and daughters, Anastasia, Sophia and Christina, she speaks to us about her latest venture, Aegeanblue, and the inspiration behind her new collection.
We have 3 retail stores in three locations in NSW, opening our first store in Newcastle Mall back in the 1950s. Since then we have sold an incredible range of stylish, shaping and flattering bikinis and swimwear. Shop for the full range of Australian swimwear today from Carla Swimwear.
