Gabi Gregg, one of the most influential curvy bloggers, has launched a swimwear line for U.S. sizes 10 to 24 in collaboration with the company swimsuitsforall. The 25-year-old writer, who writes a style column for InStyle magazine, even modeled the galaxy print bikini with a punchy print of the universe and mesh cutouts. Described as “very young and fresh and bright,” the beachwear collection was shot by New York-based photographer Lydia Hudgens. It includes stylish maillot bathing suits, form-flattering bikinis bikinis and cover-ups in bright prints and loud neon hues. Especially, there are convertible bikinis in neon, a hot trend in swimwear. It means that they can be worn as halter style or strapless while the bottoms can be sported super high-waisted or folded down to your comfort level. Miss Gregg hopes that her five-piece capsule collection will inspire women to throw away their insecurities and find the confidence to wear a bikini no matter their shape or size. It’s not the first time the U.S. size 18 blogger has lobbied for plus-size women to hit the beach in a two-piece. Last year, Gabi Gregg invited other women of all shapes and sizes to share their own self-portraits donning swimwear. Thirty-one women then emailed the fashion blogger to participate in the online picture gallery, which was entitled “31 Hot Sexy Fat Girls in Skimpy Swimwear.”
