I am THRILLED TO announce that the Kickstarter to fund the Plus Size Collection for Leche Libre is finally HERE! I am so proud of this collection as it marks the culmination of Leche Libre's mission to be a body positive brand and empower women to own the life giving power of our bodies and represent it through fierce functional fashion.
Ever since launching, I have always wanted to do plus sizes, but the skill to develop the patterns with the right fit alluded me. It was always so hard to hear women asking me again and again when I would do plus, knowing the whole time I wanted to do it yesterday but not knowing when I could answer the call.
Finally last year, I got connected with size inclusive stylist Kat Eves, who specializes in plus fashion. She hooked me up with Casey Sunich, an amazing technical designer who specializes in plus patterning. Together, we formed a dream team to put this collection together. We've kept all the same style line and materials but optimized the patterns to create a stylish and comfortable fit for plus mamas. We tested our patterns all the way up to size 26 to make sure the patterns would grade right and maintain the Leche LIbre standards so women of all shapes and sizes will feel confident and stylish as the women they are and be the moms they want to be.
Women have been been oppressed so long with painfully narrow beauty standards and plus size women are endlessly shamed for their bodies. Giving birth is the most powerful thing a human body can do and plus sizes mamas deserve to celebrate their bodies, OWN their power and channel it through fierce functional fashion. Body positivity and breastfeeding go hand in hand and this plus collection is the culmination of my mission to empower women of every possible shape and size to confidently breastfeed wherever they damn well please, in killer style.
