Since it’s debut in 2013, the partnership between Gabi Gregg and Swimsuits For All has produced some of the most coveted plus size swimwear pieces. Recently, TLA covered the editorial campaign starring Gregg herself. New designs, re-releases of previous designs in new colorways, and a few accessory items comprise the partnership’s 5th collection. I’m excited to review a couple of my favorite suits from this round of designs. I purchased the Reflection Underwire (a new design) and the Champagne Swimsuit (a design from last season available in a new color) and am quite pleased with both.

Up until recently, I viewed my underwear as a necessity and limited myself to purchases that could be considered practical foundation garments. This lingerie wishlist/gift guide could be useful for individuals seeking to request gifts they would never buy for themselves, but would love to have.

Instead, show the gift givers in your life this list, and let them do the treating for you!

Shopping for lingerie and sleepwear, as opposed to bras, can be freeing as you’re less limited by traditional requirements for functional elements. You aren’t bound by the need of endless seaming and underwires because the intent of the item is different. However, it can still sometimes become a microcosm of what it’s like to shop while fat, period. Retailers tend to latch onto an aesthetic, usually well behind the popularity […]
It’s amazing how much plus size swimwear options have changed in a relatively short period of time. A few years ago, most plus size swimwear options were bland one pieces or tankinis, with no attempt to even approach the vast variety of style or attention to detail given to swimwear in straight sizes. In just a few years, we now have a bright landscape of options in a variety of cuts to suit the tastes (but not size) of a pretty wide swath, if not all, of the plus size customer base.
