The new spacious glass fronted store at Morfa Retail park, Swansea
I've been getting the Next catalogues for years, and love browsing the new collections but there is something far more satisfying in going to your local store and seeing the items, especially the fashion in person. Trying on the clothes, seeing how they fit, feeling the material and seeing the styles in person, cannot be beaten.
I am a fan of the brands Next sell as well, such as Yumi, Lipsy and Vila, as you can see from my favourite tunics from the new Autumn and Winter collection below.

There is also a makeup section which was great as you so often don't see this in store.
The store has plenty of space in the aisles, making it easy to get a wheelchair or double pushchair around, something that is vitally important and can be overlooked by smaller stores. Lifts make the accessibility brilliant too, and with a Costa coffee shop opened upstairs, you can really make a morning or afternoon out of a shopping trip.

So if you live near Swansea or are visiting the lovely Mumbles area on holiday, pop in the car, and drive up to the lovely new Next store in Swansea.
