Gabi Gregg, the blogger behind GabiFresh, is out with the fourth edition of her popular plus-size swim line. The 14-piece collection launched yesterday on Swimsuits for All, with plenty of prints and details like mesh cut-outs and front zippers.
Every piece is under $100. It's now available in sizes 12-24 D/DD and 18-24 in E/F and G/H. Another new option this time around: low-waisted bikini bottoms instead of just high-waisted, retro styles.
"My collection is never really super cohesive, partially because there are so few options for plus-sized women; I like to really use my platform and collection as a way to service many different tastes," Gregg told Refinery29. "They’re all statement pieces and head-turners with cool details."
The campaign's tagline is "Queen of the Bikini," and the styling includes a throne and scepter, naturally. Gregg, who's recently modeled for Target and ASOS, says her swim line is for girls who aren't interested in the conservative styles the plus-size industry is churning out.
She told R29: "There are fashion-forward, trendy girls who love showing skin and aren't ashamed of their bodies; these bathing suits are really for those girls."
