We decided to go to our local Old Navy to check out the new and improved in-store shopping experience for ourselves, and we are taking you with us!
Hey boos! We’re coming at you with another new swim line that’s launching this summer! It looks like Hunter McGrady is not the only model dropping a fun and sexy swimwear collection for the summer! Supermodel Joan Smalls has launched her own swimwear collection with lingerie and swimwear brand, Smart & Sexy!
“From concept to creation, my goal was to create beautiful pieces, with a variety of sizes, all at affordable prices”. – Joan Smalls
Yes Joan! Serve us!
Listen friends: My favorite part of this collection, next to the sexy pieces, is that the prices are affordable! I don’t know about you, but it’s hard for me to part with $100+ for something I wear mayyyybe 3 times a season. With prices ranging from $10-$24, girl you can buy a few swimsuits.
Yup, you read that right.
You can get that bikini, tankini, one-piece, aor cover-up that you need, to get right for summer, for under $50! Joan is here for the budget conscious and fellow plus size fashionistas who are trying to enjoy the sun this summer!
I do have to say I wish the line came in a larger size range, but it looks like this line can fit up to a size 20. Although this line is kind of size inclusive, the collection gives us a few playful options up through a XXL with the tops ranging in bra sizes 32B to 40DDD.
Marie’s Note: I do need these brands stepping into plus sizes to be mindful of their size ranges… at the bare minimum, you should be offering up through a 24. If you have the resources, a 28 and if you really want to wow us? Carry up through a 30. It is a slap in the face to call something inclusive when you exclude a huge chunk of the plus size size range. Just sayin…
In addition to this line being affordable, you also don’t have to go far to cop yours. GET. THIS. Select Walmart stores will be selling the Smart & Sexy collection, and if you don’t feel like rolling down to the local big box retailer, you can shop in your PJs online at Smartandsexy.com.
Joan says she understands that not all women look like her and we celebrate this truth right here. She wanted to make sure these pieces enhance and flatter all of our shapes. Most of the styles are sold as separates, which is great for mix and matching looks. Plus, it’s perfect if you wear different sizes on top and bottom.
She tells WWD, “I’m so eclectic. I can go from sporty, tomboy chic to very classic styles.” Me too girl, me too.
Joan gets that many women are looking for items that fit into their budget and are of high quality. No one needs to be worried about their swimsuit disintegrating in the pool. That would not be cute.
