Gabi Fresh Debuts “Fatkinis” Plus Size Swimsuit Collection

Submitted by on May 19, 2013 – 12:32 pm4 Comments

Style blogger Gabi Gregg, otherwise known as Gabi Fresh, has a fresh perspective on swimwear. The curvy cutie teamed up with Swimsuits For All recently to create a plus-size swimsuit collection.

“When I saw the movie Spring Breakers, I was immediately reminded of the suits I’d designed, and we definitely used that as a point of inspiration,” Gabi wrote on her personal blog.

After images of herself wearing a two-piece went viral, Gabi was approached by the swimwear site. “I became known for being the confident plus size girl in the bikini,” she told MTV Style. “I was super excited when swimsuitsforall approached me about designing a capsule collection, and of course I said yes! I’ve been wanting to design for awhile now. As a plus size woman who feels like there’s a lot still missing from the market, I’ve had lots of ideas about what I’d like to create, so this was a great opportunity.”

Gregg created a capsule collection for ladies falling between sizes 10 and 24. “I designed three bikinis, a one piece, and a coverup,” she said. “I wanted a collection that was really fresh and young, because I think a lot of the plus size swimwear out there right now is made for an older demographic. I wanted bright colors, which look great at the beach or pool, and graphic prints, because I’m loving that trend right now. I decided on two neon bikinis that are convertible (they can be worn strapless or halter style, and the bottoms can be worn high or low waisted). I also made a galaxy print bikini, with the matching coverup, and a jewel-print, backless one piece. It’s definitely statement swimwear for the fashion-conscious set.”
