While many fashion brands — and even some high-end designers like Christian Siriano — have started to offer options in extended sizes for women, finding plus-size lingerie is still a constant struggle. Thankfully, online fashion retailer Simply Be is doing the work to bring about change.
Earlier this morning in London, the popular brand held a lingerie catwalk show titled “We’re All Angels.” The show was headlined by supermodel and plus-size advocate Robyn Lawley who joined other models ranging from a size 10 to 22.
The petition stated that for every picture posted with the hashtag “#WeAreAllAngels,” ThirdLove would donate one bra to the non-profit agency Support The Girls (which provides homeless women with bras around the country).

According to a press release issued by Simply Be, “the We’re All Angels event showcased the brand’s AW18 lingerie offer which features snake print, chain choker detailing, romantic lace, glitter bodysuits and studded strapping right up to a chest size 48, K cup and brief size 32, proving that everyone can look and feel amazing in great fitting lingerie.”
Proving that size inclusivity is of the essence and a topic we won’t let down. Confidence comes from within.
Fans took to the brand’s social media accounts to show appreciation for the efforts to make lingerie more inclusive with one user writing, “I love this!! Simply beautiful!! #morethanourbodies #allsizesmatter #worthy.” Another fan commented and said, “I don’t have the words to express how happy this makes me!”.
Ann Steer, Chief Customer Officer of N Brown Group, said of the campaign: “Our ‘We’re All Angels’ show is a celebration of women and who they are, eliminating the idea that we are defined by our bodies. At Simply Be, we believe that women should be able to wear whatever they want regardless of size.
