Ann Nahari, the California-based luxury plus size fashion brand, recently launched a new lingerie division under the name Ann Nahari Intimates. The full figured fashion house teamed with famed plus model Christina Mendez as the face of the new division.
As with its ready-to-wear collection, Ann Nahari Intimates is designed by Sumiyyah Rasheed. Originally launched in 2000 under the brand name Full Figure Design, the new lingerie division is a complete revamp and rebrand of the collection for the Ann Nahari woman. “We have upgraded the whole collection with better fit and fabrication,” says Ms. Rasheed. “The new collection reflects both sexiness and comfort with styles that are on trend.”
After testing the collection with a small market in the southern California area to rave reviews, Sumiyyah decided to roll out the lingerie collection, which was designed to complement the ready-to-wear collection for the brand.
Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the debut collection..

A little over a year ago, the plus size fashion world was all a buzz with the launch of eloquii, a fashion forward plus line by The Limited. Featuring accessories to outerwear and everything in between, eloquii sought to bring looks from the catwalk to the full figured fashionista without sacrificing fit and quality. They gladly showcased their collections in beautifully shot campaigns with some of the industry’s top models including Tara Lynn and Kaela Humphries.
Just moments ago, on their official Facebook page, eloquii announced that the brand was being phased out in a open letter to their fans.
A Special Message to our Fans
For more than a year, eloquii has served you by delivering quality, must-have fashion in sizes that highlight your confident curves. In return, you have given us great feedback about how we can better serve you.
We look forward to offering you new fashion at www.eloquii.com through the summer. However, after a year’s test at market, we have decided to phase out eloquii and we have begun discussions with others who have expressed an interest in the future of the brand and/or its products.
Thank you so much for your support and for your feedback as we developed and refined eloquii over the last year. We recognize that eloquii plays an important role in our fans’ lives and look forward to better serving our clients in the future.
So sad to see a line with so much promise go.

Ok, so what–we are a little bias when it comes to Christina Mendez. It could be her candidness during an interview, or it could be her 24/7 grind–we aren’t sure which, but anyway you slice it we just love her.
If it seemed like she had been missing in action, you can attribute that to her new bundle of joy, Cailey Christine. Although, being a mom for the second time around did not stop her for long. Three months after the birth of her baby girl, Christina hit the ground running with high-profile features on Good Morning America and Rachael Ray modeling for Modern Family’s star Sofia Vergara’s Kmart Fashion segment, BET’s Rip the Runway, New Jersey Full Figured Fashion Week, Rocawear.com, Qristyl Frazier’s Epitome Collection, WABC (NY) speaking on behalf of Autism Speaks, and numerous commercials. Did we mention that she was ranked #3 on Oddee’s list of “10 Incredibly Hot Women Who Are Larger Than A Size 12”?
