When I started my #plussizeplease movement over two years ago, I was hoping straight size designers would take notice of the serious untapped potential of the plus size market, which is the most populous in the country. Just like the straight size market, women in the plus size range have varied tastes and styles, so we want clothing options to express that variety. Cool girl designer Rachel Antonoff is one of the designers I’ve always wanted in plus, so I am so happy to work for a company that helped make it a reality. The Rachel Antonoff for Gwynnie Bee collab is #plussizeplease in action, and I don’t think I can properly express how happy I am to be part of that.
The collection itself is fantastic, using prints and silhouettes from Antonoff’s original line, with expert technical design to fit sizes 10-32 perfectly. This sheath dress is great on, and got compliments all day when I wore it to the CurvyCon.
The print is my favorite part: While it looks like a pretty spring floral from afar, upon closer look you see it is actually a bunch of colorful dissected frogs! Who knew science class could inspire fashion so literally (and awesomely)?
