Swimwear by RoPosted: May 27, 2009
A few weeks ago whilst browsing Fatshionista I came across a thread posted by a swimsuit and lingerie designer, inviting readers to visit her Etsy shop. Of course, I headed right on over there to have a look see and smiled at what greeted me.
Swimwear for plus sized women actually modelled by plus sized women.
By Ro! Designs is the brainchild of Rosaria Vitale who started the company in 1989 out of frustration of not being able to find a stylish and flattering swimsuit in her size. Out of necessity, Rosaria designed and created her own swimsuit and from this one suit her business was born. By Ro! Designs is a one woman venture and all designs, patterns and manufacturing is done by the woman herself. With considerations for a curvy figure, she uses features such as power netting, princess seams and contouring to make the swimsuits flattering as well as beautiful.
