Fashion blogger and writer GabiFresh already had thousands of fans thanks to her style blog GabiFresh.com, but she became an internet sensation after her post titled “Fatkini 2012” went viral. The post had pictures of her rocking a bikini on a Vegas vacation along with this message to her readers: As always, I truly encourage you guys to get to the beach (or a pool) this summer—don’t let body shame keep you from having a good time!
The overwhelmingly positive feedback landed her on the Today show and in the pages of Glamour and InStyle. So, it was only natural that she would be the perfect collaborator for a swimwear line for Swimsuits For All. Her vision for what makes a great swimsuit is both fashionable and functional. “I love neon colors, little cutouts and cool details,” she says. “But it also has to have good bust support and hug my curves in a comfortable way.” Her fans agree—both her 2013 and 2014 collections sold out within hours.
