Fashion blogger and designer Gabi Gregg (aka Gabi Fresh) knows firsthand how difficult it can be to find plus-sized lingerie that has some personality. So in an effort to spice up the market, she worked on a collection with lingerie brand Playful Promises to create the type of pieces that have been missing in her underwear drawer.
"Generally speaking, if I go shopping (being a plus-sized woman with 38HH cups), my options are super basic—just one or two colour options with no design detail or fun elements. That's why I'm so adamant about each of my pieces bringing something playful," says Gregg. "I'd love all size ranges of mainstream lines to be expanded to include the majority of women, and I'd love for the campaigns to actually include representation of the women they're selling to."
The collection includes deep raspberry shades, delicate embellishment and cutout detailing. "I really wanted to make these designs special and statement pieces," says Fresh. "These aren't your average boring-and-beige bras. Every piece has some sort of detail that makes it unique—from a velvet and fishnet set to a sequinned basque, each style in this collection will turn heads."
