Huffine launches lingerie collaboration with Fortnight

A new collaboration is on the horizon, this time from the minds of model Candice Huffine and the folks at Fortnight Lingerie.

According to InStyle, the model is teaming up with Fortnight Lingerie to release a 12-piece collection of comfortable, yet sexy lingerie in a range of sizes. Available in sizes up to XXL and a G-cup, InStyle reports that the line “features everything from high-waisted briefs (that are anything but matronly) to cute teddies and longline bras all in cool prints created specifically for the brand.”

With a variety of sizes and styles available, Huffine told InStyle that even details right down to the print are designed to encourage individuality.

“The print is slightly different on each piece,” she said. “I wanted women to celebrate themselves and their own individually. These pieces are powerful and feminine.”

Even the pieces themselves are created with the idea that every woman can wear them according to their own style; they don’t have to be just lingerie, says Huffine.

“Try the bodysuit as a top or a tank, and don’t be afraid to layer,” she told InStyle. “I tried the bodysuit with a t-shirt underneath. I rolled the sleeves and paired it with jeans. The longline bras would look beautiful under a sheer top. The possibilities are endless.”

“You could hear the roar of the applause as they walked down the runway,” MJ Day, the editor of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, told Today. “One girl came up to me after. She was a blogger, and she had just recently lost 100 pounds, and her eyes welled up. She just was like … ‘I couldn’t leave without thanking you and telling you how much this means to me.'”

Sometimes, beauty products are about more than just adding a pop of color to our faces and a glow to our skin.

Take The Lipstick Lobby, for example. According to InStyle, the beauty-for-good brand is using their lipstick products in order to benefit women in the United States and around the world by having 100 percent of the net profits of one of their lipstick donated to Planned Parenthood.

This dual-purpose lipstick is beneficial all around, and for just $19, you get an eye-catching new shade to try out, all while supporting women’s health care in the U.S. and beyond.

Premme takes plus fashion by storm

Remember this name: Premme.

Launched on July 25, this Los Angeles-based clothing line offers the plus-size clothing of your dreams, and according to Refinery29, the size 12 to 30 line made its debut at a reasonable price range, costing between $30 and $89. But don’t let the accessible prices fool you; Premme does not compromise fashion for price.

Described by Refinery29 as a “statement collection,” brand founders Nicolette Mason and Gabi Gregg told the online publication that Premme was born out of their own frustrations with minimal size options and compromised style choices.

“We’ve always loved fashion — we’ve been fashion girls for a very long time, and we’re frustrated with the fact that designers aren’t making our size,” Gregg told Refinery29. “The brands that are making our size are [making products that are] diluted and watered down. We didn’t want that for our brand. We didn’t want to compromise style.”

With a mission to make style available to shoppers of all sizes, Mason and Gregg created a line that delivers bold style — think a shorts sweatsuit embellished with pearls — that is both accessible and affordable. What’s more is that Gregg told Refinery29 that Premme acts as a challenge to retailers to be as inclusive as they possibly can.

“We’re trying to change things up. Not only in terms of design but in our messaging and in every element of what we’re doing,” Gregg said. “We’re just trying to be the stand-out brand that’s really listening to the community.”

As if Premme didn’t already seem #flawless, Refinery29 reports that the line also uses plus-sized models who range in size from 16 to 26 — what a concept!

Sounds too good to be true, right? It’s not, but you might want to hurry to check it out, since Cosmo is reporting that some items are already starting to sell out.
