If you’re hooked into the fashion blogging world you’ve heard of plus-size fashion blogger Gabi Gregg. If not, Gabi is a popular fashion blogger (formerly of Young, Fat & Fabulous) who has been featured everywhere, InStyle, xoJane, MTV and notably The Today Show, where she discussed body acceptance, being plus-size and her notable post where she wore a bikini.
Recently, Gabi collaborated with swimwear company Swimsuits for All to offer other stylish ladies the “fatkini” bikini for plus-size women. In bright neon colors and a starry galaxy print, the galaxy print fatkini sold out in hours! While this was great for Gabi Gregg, Swimsuits for All couldn’t handle the demand and revealed that they would not be fulfilling orders; though they’ve charged customers’ credit cards. And to top things all numerous customers have complained that refunds on orders have not been issued.
Gabi Gregg issued a statement on her blog saying that Swimsuits for All couldn’t fulfill the orders and would not be restocking the galaxy print fatkini because of production issues.
What do you think of fashion blogger collaborations? Would you wear a fatkini?
