Most of us can't claim that we started our career while posing in a bra at age 13. In fact, some of us probably didn't even consider a bra a part of our wardrobe yet at that age. But, for model Ashley Graham, lounging around in lingerie has been a job she's excelled at for years. By having had her curves cradled and crushed by beautiful and horrific undergarments alike, Graham clearly knew that there was a void in the market for gorgeous, well-made intimates that wouldn't make your bank account go bust.
Enter Addition Elle, the Canada-based clothing store for size 12-plus women. The brand is a frequent employer of Graham, and a purveyor of lacy underpinnings, so it was only natural that the two found a new way to collaborate, and we couldn't be more grateful.
The release of Graham's third capsule collection for Addition Elle makes it clear that her designs are in demand. This season features alluring pieces inspired by old Hollywood glamour, filled with flirty touches of lace in a film-noir tone of black-and-white.
While the designs currently only go up to a DDD cup, Graham assured that this will change in the near future. “For our spring/summer collection (coming out in April) we are extending into Gs and Hs,” she explained. “Before we went into extended sizes, we needed to see how the collection was going to sell. It is clear that these sizes are in-demand, and we want to be able to provide for all our customers.”
While the assortment won't be available until August 18, you can window shop all the items now that you can't wait to get your hands on (and curves into).
The Ashley Graham collection will be available at select Addition Elle boutiques across Canada, online, and at Navabi.
