experiencetheroo asked: Hey Sonny! Loved your review on the GabiFresh fatkinis. My question to you is what size do you feel should be the cut off since they claim to have swimsuitsforall?
Thanks! That’s a really good question. I think they really just need to change the name, because you’re always going to leave someone out if you call it Swim Suits For All. It was brought to my attention that the 24 cut-off was a problem when I read about it on a fat activist blog (Now I can’t remember what it was! It may have been thisisthinprivilege.tumblr.com) so I gathered they were leaving out a large portion of the plus sized population. But I don’t personally have the knowledge to say what size they should go up to.
I appreciated cristinamarieme.tumblr.com’s comment: “The company itself goes up to 34, but for some reason has decided to only release the GabiFresh line up to 24. My hope is that because they seem to have had such a small release of the line (most are already sold out, and apparently there was only a 3 month production window), and the popularity of them will encourage more swim suits made in larger sizes for either the next release (if it happens) or other lines.”
