GABIFRESH X SWIMSUITS FOR ALL -- AVAILABLE NOW!

Yay!!! The day has finally arrived--my swimwear collection is live online and available for purchase at swimsuitsforall.com! Please read this before you buy, because I want to say a bit more about the support and fit of the suits and answer a few questions I've been getting. The suits are available to ship internationally. They are sold in sets only, not separates. There is no underwire in the tops, only soft cups--they are comparable to any other soft cup bikini, support wise. These aren't control top bottoms. (They're similar to the fatkini I wore last year, if you bought one of those!). That said, if you are looking for a bit more control, the jewel print and galaxy suits provide more than the neon suits. The neon bikinis are convertible, the product photos on the site are showing all the different ways to wear the same bottoms. I would suggest sizing down at least one size in the neon suits, especially if you don't have a bust larger than a D/DD cup; during the shoot I wore a 14 in the neon bottoms. The galaxy and jewel print run true to your normal jeans/dress size (I fit an 18)! I hope this helps with any confusion! I will try to be close to twitter all day today to answer any more questions you have. EDITED TO ADD: THE GALAXY PRINT BIKINI HAS SOLD OUT! Thanks to everyone for your support and sorry to those of you who didn't get a chance to purchase.

Thank you all so much for entering the swimsuitsforall swag bag contest! Congrats to the winner,  JAMIE TURNER!!!! You will be contacted shortly.

Now on to the fun stuff, official pictures of the collection! Because this line has a super young and fun feel, we wanted that to be reflected in our shoot. 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. photo _mg_0363_zps318b1426.jpg  photo _mg_1243_zps61cf3532.jpg  photo _mg_0729_zps7ef8156d.jpg  photo _mg_1308_zps028a8730.jpg  photo _mg_0315_zps8774b51f.jpg  photo _mg_0800_zpsf1794959.jpg  photo _mg_8182_zps524b969b.jpg And then things took a more literal turn... photo _mg_1552_zpsf2f30e36.jpg  photo _mg_1992_zps0444b8cd.jpg  photo _mg_1747_zps68d3e350.jpg I hope you guys love the shoot and the suits as much as I do! Thank you so much for your support throughout this process. Can't wait to see all of you gorgeous girls rocking your bikinis at the beach this Summer. You can find and buy the full collection here.

  4. I'm really disappointed with the model they have on the site in the neon bikinis. They don't really fit her and I don't feel like the shots do the bikini justice. Certainly they don't look as slammin' on her as they do on you ladies above!

    I know you probably had no control over that - just wanted to vent and give my appreciation for the photo shoot - always great to see how clothes fit on different bodies.

  5. These look so great, congrats! The versatility of the neon bottoms is so smart.

    1. I place an order for it early, EARLY the morning it was released, and even mine got canceled because they couldn't fulfill all the orders. They need to get more in stock! I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DISAPPOINTED!

  31. Is there some kind of sizing information, I've placed and cancelled two different orders because I'm freaked out that the suit won't fit correctly and I'm leaving for the Bahamas RIGHT after it's supposed to arrive!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. So the Galaxy bikini is not being restocked?!! I ordered one and hours later got an email that they cancelled my order since it was sold out. I'm depressed.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm a bit heartbroken over the galaxy print. It won't be restocked?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am heartbroken the galaxy print is sold out, any chance of a restock?

  36. Is the galaxy print going to be restocked?? I can't believe it sold out in just two days!

    1. It sold out in a few minutes. I ordered one at 12:15am and one at 1pm on the day of release and both of mine got refunded.

  37. I hope you restock the galaxy print! I love that suit and want one so bad.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I just called S4A after receiving an email stating that mine was on backorder and was informed that they will not be restocked and I will be issued a refund :(

    ReplyDelete
  39. I always wonder how much they decide to stock with stuff like this and how hard it would be to produce more. B/c there is definitely an actual calculation to determine the cost of a stock out and sometimes I think the people ordering don't really do that. I feel the same way with MAC. How many lipsticks did they have available. How many of these suits. If they were this hot wouldn't it make sense to restock them?
    Just my thoughts as someone who works in operations, manufacturing, and supply chain.

    ReplyDelete
  40. OMG! i ordered the galaxy bikini at 830am that day, order went through and today i get an email that they cancelled my order due to it being SOLD OUT! i hope they restock! i NEEED this swimsuit :'/

    1. Same thing happened to me! They really should have anticipated how popular it would be. RESTOCK!!!

  41. I was sooo excited to get the galaxy print two piece. I ordered it LITERALLY 15 minutes after it was released and today I get a email saying that it's sold out. 0__0 That sounded alittle fishy to me. I called in and all they could tell me was that it's sold out. -___- Soooo disappointed but I shall live. In a good light, I'm happy your line sold so well. :(

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The website says that won't which doesn't seem like a GREAT business decision but what can you do? If you have a bunch of stuff sitting on your website for months and then a line comes in a sells out in minutes which ones would YOU keep restocking.
      But as I said, I'm always curious about how much inventory is even ordered/made in the first place for any "limited edition" items and I just usually sit it out b/c of the high possibility of disappointment. These suits looked pretty and flattering. I haven't had a swimsuit since middle school so I wasn't waiting for it but I'm really sorry seeing how many people couldn't get it.

      Delete
    2. They are clearly a shitty company who makes shitty decisions. I don't know about you, but I got TERRIBLE customer service through the whole ordeal! Plus selling out in 15 minutes is ridiculous! Even Missoni for Target lasted longer than that. I hope Gabi designs another collection, but with a better company this time.

      Delete
    3. Riiiiight! They called tonight and offered more apologies and a discount. Eh, I'm over it at this point.

      Delete
  42. I've waited a couple of weeks for the release date...ordered it....only to see it hasn't shipped yet. I called in and they said they pulled the item. I'm going to Vegas Memorial Day weekend and have bought accessories and all specifically for this suit. I would have made other plans if I knew this would happen. I just can't believe that it's "sold out". Gabi I love your fashion as I have recently started following you but this release is super disappointing!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ordered the galaxy suit and even recieved email confirmation..only to find out its sold out. Super disappointing at how unprofessional the ordering process took place. Supply and demand...You have the demand with no SUPPLY!!!! Simply UNACCEPTABLE~~Who is over your branding and Supply Chain Operations...

    ReplyDelete
  44. Apparently the neon swim suits are sold out as well!!! I ordered mine on Thursday and the rep told me today when I called in that she is looking at the inventory and the number that represents what they have in stock is a big fat zero!!! Ecstatic that your line sold so well Gabi!! Maybe this could be an annual thing exclusive to SSFA!! Whatever you decide to do congratulations!! Side note: Super Bummed about not getting one :(

    1. Are they? Ugh, they need to take them off the site if they're sold out. :(

  45. maybe if we go to SS4A, and send in emails requesting that they restock the galaxy and jewel print they'll listen!

  46. Love this! And I'm so stoked to see shades like that be in trend. I'm buying!

    1. Actually, you won't b/c they sold out a couple hours after launch, and even many of the women who placed orders got emails that they were cancelled. So maybe someone who was successful will give hers up on Ebay, but you are a little to late to this party.
      They were lovely and a nice design but apparently very limited quantities and based on the comments here, the company's ERP systems basically suck, b/c most online stores do a much better job at not selling inventory that they don't have (and some even tell you actual or approximate amounts of stock left).
      Whoever does their forecasting needs to be fired.

    2. i have one up for sale on ebay. it wasn't really "me". size 20. i saw someone else had an 18. my starting bid is exactly what i paid, plus the shipping i paid.

  47. Gorgeous ladies! Congrats on your success, you deserve every bit of it!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm so glad I've ordered the galaxy printed one before it sold out. Can't wait to get it and rock my fatkini!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Awesome work Gabi!! These are easily the best plus size suits I've ever come across and I really hope that Swimsuitsforall.com or any other swimsuit retailer sees what a huge success they are and gives you more opportunities!I had a feeling they would sell out quickly so I ordered right at midnight and got my shipping email on Friday (I should have it by Wednesday *SQUEEE*)
    For those of you that were able to get one, we really should figure out a way to exchange them among ourselves if they don't fit, since obviously we won't be able to return it to the site for a replacement in the right size. Maybe we could even switch out tops and bottoms in order to get a different size in separate pieces. I'm Vivelafat on wordpress but you can email me at vivelafat@gmail.com.
    Finally, and this is only my personal opinion, I would really suggest getting your suit tailored once you get it, even if it seems to fit. Most people don't think about getting their swimsuits tailored, but it's usually under $20.00 to do so and it really makes the suit look exactly like it does on the models in the photo shoot. I ordered a size 20, almost certainly too big, for the exact purpose of getting it bespoken by my tailor.

  51. Damn you three look gorgeous! o_o I haven't worn a bathing suit of any kind (and thusly given up swimming entirely) in over 10 years, because I... don't dare to. Not only am I very much a "plus size", but I have practically no breasts, making my body very poorly porpotioned and me very much unwilling to wear anything less than capris and a t-shirt. I you, well porpotioned and curvy, women to be very beautiful - yet I still only see myself as fat rather than curvy - maybe because of my lack of boobage. *sigh* Maybe one day I too will be able to go swimming again...

Please don't stop blogging, your blog is a perfect contrast for all the big magazines that label anyone over a size six as massively overweight. You're beautiful with a great sense of style. Thank you for the blog.

  75. Dearest Gabi,

    I was soo soo soo sad about my GabiFresh suit. I returned mine (the pink halter two piece) within thirty minutes of it's arrival--it was ill-fitting, poorly constructed, and ridiculously understructured for anyone with breasts.

    The reviews for the whole line on Swimsuitsforall.com seem to be running to the negative, which makes me even sadder, as I think you have a voice and a vision...if you just sold your name to this line, but had no hand in the creation, please try to get your name back. If you had a hand in the creation, please remember that structure and support are important to bigger girls...

  83. All swimwear nice collection it is unique and different colors. It doesn't matter if a woman is short, medium height, or tall; it doesn't matter if her torso is long and her legs are short; and it also doesn't matter if the woman's legs appear longer than the rest of her body, Brazilian cut bikinis are seductive, alluring, and accentuate everything that a woman wants to show off. In a word, the Brazilian cut bikini is sexy.
