While many fashion brands – and even some high-end designers like Christian Siriano – have begun to offer women larger options, finding large size underwear is still a constant struggle. Fortunately, online fashion retailer Simply Be is working hard to make the difference.
Hosted this morning in London, this popular brand hosted a lingerie fashion show called “We are all Angels.” The show was hosted by supermodel and big-code advocate Robyn Lawley, who joined other models between the ages of 10 and 22. Robin created an online petition to boycott Victoria’s secret fashion show, again not including women of any size.
The petition says that for every photo with the “#WeAreAllAngels” label, ThirdLove will donate a bra to a non-profit organization support girl (a bra for homeless women across the country). The event spread quickly and caught the attention of many people, including Simply Be.
Walking with Robyn is the large model Hayley Hasselhoff, Ashley James and Felicity Hayward. According to a press release issued by Simply Be, “We Were All Angels event showcased the brand’s AW18 underwear offer, including snake prints, chain necklace details, romantic lace, glitter tights and rivet straps, up to bust 48, K cups and Shorts 32, proving that everyone can look and feel amazing in the underwear.”
Fans participated in the brand’s social media account to express appreciation for a user’s efforts to make underwear more inclusive. “I like this! Simple beauty!! #morethanourbodies #allsizesmatter #worthy.” Another The fan commented, “I have no words to express this and make me happy!”
Ann Steer, N Brown Group’s chief customer officer, said: “Our ‘all of us angels’ programs celebrate women and their identity, eliminating the notions defined by our bodies. At Simply Be, we believe that women should be able to wear whatever they want. “Victoria’s secret, it’s time to catch up.
