Keeping it simple...


I am already looking forward to Spring even though Winter hasn't even started...Thinking about that: gorgeous swimwear by simply be

It is great to work with one of the precursors of e-commerce, especially since having worked in e-commerce one way or another my whole working life, I was very interested in finding out about Simply Be's history. The company was founded in 1875 by James David Williams, who in 1882, was the first to make use of the UK's parcel post service, to send his company's products direct to his customers. The formula of providing quality, fashionable, value for money clothing direct to customers proved increasingly popular towards the latter end of the 20th Century and J D Williams enjoyed significant growth. This continuing growth has ensured J D Williams is the most successful direct home shopping company in the UK today, with over 2 million customers and 4,000 employees.

Simply Be is a trading style of Candid Collections Limited, a sister company to J D Williams & Company Limited, the UK's leading direct home shopping company, operating over 20 successful catalogue brands. Our catalogues offer a huge selection of clothing and other products for all ages and sizes. All our clothes are designed to provide the best fit at the best value, and we are specialists in the area of larger size womenswear.

Simply Be wants to take the hassle out of shopping for larger sizes. Not only they offer a great bespoke service, they also have redesigned their fitting rooms in some of their store to offer larger, more comfortable fitting rooms.
