GabiFresh x swimsuitsforall Galaxy Bikini

The first official shot from my capsule collection for swimsuitsforall is here, and it's of my favorite suit! The galaxy print bikini is definitely the stand-out piece, and I couldn't be happier with the final result. To go from a terrible sketch of what I wanted (and drew on the back of a hotel's notepad--seen here) to what you see below was such a cool experience. I'm obsessed with the details, like the purple mesh cutouts and the adjustable straps above the cup.  photo gabifreshgalaxybikini_zps1d1427c0.jpg
For more behind-the-scenes shots of the full neon bikinis and the galaxy print coverup, check out my interview with Refinery29. (My favorite part about the neon bikinis is that they are totally convertible--you can wear them halter style or strapless, and the bottoms can be worn super high waisted or folded down to your comfort level). After that, there's only one last suit that you haven't seen yet--and it's a one piece! I hope you guys love the mini collection as much as I do, more official photos will be released before the collection launches on May 15th.

  30. OMG. You are awesome. I love your clothes especially the bikinis. I'm only a size 12/14 but have been ashamed especially as I get older (I'm 50) and my skin doesn't look as good. I may have to rethink this attitude. What an awesome role model!

    ReplyDelete
  31. This is amazing, I can't wait to purchase the bathing suits. You definetly know what plus size women are liking. Its GORG. Birthday gift to myself. Can it just come out tomorrow seriously. I'll be purchasing all 5 knowing your sense of style.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I heard these only go to a 24, disappointing for those over that--- I guess I am going to try it since I typically only need a 26 in slacks. I hope these tops are sized by bra size to accommodate larger breasts and please please please have underwire!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ahhh I love this! You look phenomenal and that suit is awesome! I may have to get one...

  52. I will definitely be looking into these. I haven't owned a bathing suit in years - much less a bikini - but I am inspired to give one of these a try. The colors are AMAZING. I'm so tired of dark purple, dark blue, or black for plus sized suits. Yours are definitely not boring.

  68. Have any of you noticed that the only people who are commenting "Gorgeous" or "beautiful" or "I love it" are other fat girls? I do believe that these fatkinis were designed to attract men and, I'm sorry, but I don't see that happening.
