Did You Know That Fashion to Figure Launched a Clothing Rental Service? Details Inside!

Published

on

Fashion To Figure (FTF) is known for offering stylish and sexy styles at affordable prices.

The brand has now ventured into the clothing subscription services world, offering plus size women the option to try their clothing without the commitment of buying, and then having to return the items if they don’t fit.

This is especially major for women who don’t have access to a physical FTF store in their area, where they could try on pieces.

Say HELLO to FTF Closet!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • You can rent out 3 pieces at a time. You can get as many items as you want during a 1-month period.
  • The boxes are sent via USPS Priority Mail shipping both ways FREE. A pre-paid envelope is included in every box.
  • No need to wash your items. FTF will take care of that, free of charge. They also ensure every item is washed/cleaned prior to sending them to customers. Each garment is inspected 3 times and hand-packed so that it reaches you in great condition.
  • If you want to keep an item, you are offered the option to buy it at a discount. With FTF prices already fairly low, this is an amazing way to get pieces even cheaper.
  • Cost: the 3-garment plan costs $54.95 a month, plus taxes as applicable.

The new service, which is powered by CaaStle who also created the Gwynnie Bee model, is easy to navigate. You simply add pieces you want to try to your closet, priortize the ones you want to get first and wait for your box to arrive.

Nick Kaplan, Fashion to Figure co-founder and Brand President, said in an official statement:

“In a highly dynamic retail environment, we want to be there for our customer wherever and however she experiences our brand. FTF Closet is another exciting way for us to deliver access to on-trend fashion at a great value and convenience. We know our customer is evolving, wants constant newness, and we want to be there for her every step of the way.”

We wanted to see firsthand how the FTF Closet service worked.

So Editor-in-chief Maddy Jones and myself decided to take on a 3-month challenge to see how we could incorporate the FTF Closet service into our lives.

We’ve both used Gwynnie Bee before so we’ve both had some experience with using a subscription service.

For size-18 Maddy, she’s a business owner, wife and mom, whose schedule is pretty hectic.

She want to find out how FTF Closet would fit into her busy lifestyle and how the service would make looking for day and event outfits less time-consuming.

For myself, FTF stops at size 24 and 3X, as well as being more of a junior plus fit, so I took on the challenge of making the FTF closet work for my size 26/28 body.

I focus more on fit and shop by my measurements and fabric instead of the size tag.  I know I am already limited on what styles I can wear (no jeans, unfortunately) but I am up for the challenge.

What do you think of Fashion to Figure launching a clothing rental service? Will you be signing up?

SwimStar All Stars Partnership With Renowned Plus-size Model and Swimsuits For All Ambassador, Denise Bidot

Inclusive Swimwear Brand Collaborates with Prominent Plus-Size Model Denise Bidot to Empower Aspiring Models

Swimsuits For All, a pioneer in inclusive swimwear, proudly introduces its inaugural SwimStar All Stars campaign in partnership with renowned plus-size model and Swimsuits For All ambassador, Denise Bidot. This collaboration marks a significant milestone, nearly a decade following Denise’s groundbreaking “Beach Body, Not Sorry” campaign with Swimsuits For All in 2015, which showcased unretouched imagery aimed at promoting unapologetic confidence.

Denise Bidot and Swimsuits For All have jointly unveiled the SwimStar All Stars nationwide search, dedicated to discovering emerging talent in the realm of swimsuit modeling. Encouraging aspiring models to share their personal narratives, the initiative aims to inspire women of all backgrounds, shapes, and sizes. Following a rigorous selection process, Brittany Wilborn, Camryn Henry, and Sharon Clawson emerged as the chosen winners. In January 2024, these models embarked on a transformative journey to Harbour Island, where they had the unparalleled opportunity to shoot alongside Denise under the expert direction of internationally acclaimed photographer and director, Ben Watts.

Reflecting on the initiative, Denise Bidot remarked, “This was a truly exceptional opportunity to celebrate the diversity of plus-size models and cultivate an atmosphere of support, empowerment, and knowledge sharing. The camaraderie on set was palpable, and I am deeply honored to impart the wisdom and insights I’ve garnered throughout my career. Opportunities like these are scarce for plus-size models in the industry, and it has been a privilege to collaborate with the exceptional team at Swimsuits for All to bring this campaign to fruition.”

The models showcased the latest swimwear offerings from the Swimsuits for All 2024 collection, featuring innovative designs tailored to meet the diverse needs of women, including:

Feel-good Fits: Addressing common concerns such as tummy bulges and fit issues, Swimsuits for All offers a range of fits designed to instill confidence and comfort in every body. Incorporating features like Power Mesh for a smooth, flattering silhouette, and adjustable straps for customizable support, the collection caters to various body types.

Bold Prints & Colors for Summer: The summer swimwear collection boasts vibrant colors and captivating prints, injecting excitement and personality into beach and poolside attire. From vivid neon hues to tropical motifs, the collection encourages self-expression and style experimentation.

Liquid Shine: Introducing Liquid Shine, a striking swim fabrication characterized by a glossy, liquid-like finish, adding an edgy allure to beachwear. Available in multiple silhouettes, including bikinis, Liquid Shine ensures you stand out with confidence.

Bikinis that Suit You Best: The Mix & Match Bikini collection offers a personalized approach to swimwear, allowing individuals to mix and match colors and silhouettes for a bespoke look tailored to their preferences.

Beyond showcasing inclusive swimwear designs, the SwimStar All Stars campaign embodies a celebration of women uplifting one another in an industry often marked by competitiveness. Throughout the week-long shoot, models engaged in one-on-one sessions with Denise, fostering meaningful dialogue about the evolving representation of plus-size bodies in swim and fashion.

Jordan Hauser, Senior Director of E-Commerce & Marketing, expressed, “This campaign transcends conventional notions of body positivity and representation in the swim and fashion industries. It is a testament to the power of storytelling and authenticity in reflecting the diverse experiences of our customer base. We are committed to fostering a movement where women find strength in unity, and we are thrilled to embark on this journey alongside Denise Bidot, one of the industry’s foremost advocates for inclusivity.”

The summer 2024 swimwear collection is now available. For further details about Swimsuits For All and the SwimStar All Stars campaign, please visit www.swimsuitsforall.com.
