July 2009

Ever notice how shoppers tend to emerge from dressing rooms in a frazzled state of static hair and bruised egos, beelining for the exit? We're here to help. Below, the fitting rooms that keep us coming back for more—with credit card in hand.

Flatter-Factor
The Blues Jean Bar
250 Fillmore St., 720-542-3756
These room designers didn't miss the small things, like the lamp that casts a decidedly nonflorescent, muted light and the hand mirror so you can check out your derrière—in private. When you're ready for the big reveal, the main area's three-way mirror offers an impossibly slim image, and you can borrow a pair of heels or sandals to take your denim for a test-drive.

Artsy Space
Decade
56 S. Broadway, 303-733-2288

These three quaint (read: tiny) rooms echo the retro-cool vibe of this South Broadway favorite. What the rooms lack in size, they make up for in style, with funky leopard-skin carpet, for-sale refurbished chairs, exposed-brick walls, and huge mirrors. Ogling the local artwork hanging behind you? That's for sale, too.

Truly Decadent
A.Line Boutique
5375 Landmark Place, Suite 107, Greenwood Village, 303-773-8200
Knowing that the right light is key to a good fitting, the owners have hung individual chandeliers above each room to cast a softened glow, making even the palest skin look luminescent. With a plush yellow chair, a ginormous mirror, and a large, luxurious curtain, those Ella Moss summer frocks look radiant even in the dead of winter.

At Your Service
SOL, Store of Lingerie
248 Detroit St., 800-466-1356
A professionally trained fitter whisks you to a curtained room with a soft light, analyzes your size, and discretely pops in and out with gorgeous bras—try Lise Charmel's ephemeral, lacy designs—that fit perfectly. You won't lift a finger; the staff will hook and unhook you, so kick back in the comfy chair and be pampered.
