“A couple years ago, we decided we wanted to design clothes beyond tees and sweatshirts—styles that were versatile, adaptable, and looked (and felt!) great on everyone. What resulted is something we’re extremely proud of: a true collaboration between us and you.”
Inside the Ban.do Capsule Collection
The “flexible fit” collection features two jumpsuits, two pinafore dresses, and one wrap shirt. And Bonus: Everything has pockets! Not only do we get versatile and timeless pieces in this collection, we get pockets! Girl, each piece in the collection can be worn and styled a multitude of ways. Score! This makes life SO much easier for those of us who experience the morning frenzy of getting dressed.
But, let’s talk fit… As to way to make sure all of the pieces would fit properly on different body types, Ban.do worked first closely with their community of shoppers. They held fittings with girls in sizes 00 – 24 to gain feedback on what could be tailored and tweaked. Thank you, Ban.do!
The collection is not just a one-time thing either, but was created as part of a long-term effort towards expanding Ban.do’s size range. This is something that we so appreciate.
To launch the collection, Ban.do featured a mix of women in the community, activists, influencers, and even some of the brand’s own employees: Deja Foxx, Jordan Heltsley, Denisse Benitez, Olivia Muenter, Julia Walck, Jamie Hamilton, and Elizabeth Hall. Who wouldn’t love to be a model for the day, right!

What do you think about the capsule collection? Which is your favorite piece? Mine? I am crushing on the pink pinafore skirt. I’m thinking of pairing mine with a floral crop top and a block heel strappy sandal. What would you pair that skirt with?
