I want ladies, irrespective of their size or body types, to be confident and love themselves” – Toolz officially launches Lingerie Line for Plus Size Women

Media personality, Tolu ‘Toolz’ Oniru-Demuren has officially launched her lingerie line for plus size women,  called Sablier  pronounced as Sab-Lee-Ay.

Toolz who mirrored on her experience growing up as a full-bodied woman further detailed her journey towards accepting her body shape and size.

She says:

The journey to accepting my body hasn’t been easy. As a curvy girl, you tend to feel out of place – my body type wasn’t the hot thing back then. I just did not fit in. I want ladies, irrespective of their size or body types, to be confident and love themselves, and essentially embrace their beautiful, because beauty is from within and is not dependent on what society dictates.

She further explains that it took her some time to come to a breakthrough about seeing herself through a lens of body positivity. That change in perspective was something she wanted to share, but not just through words.

Before her lingerie line launch, Toolz took a course in lingerie and swimwear design at the prestigious and award-winning London College of Fashion to get in-depth knowledge of the lingerie market, reiterated that her struggle to find brands that cater exclusively to her body size was a motivating factor in creating the Sablier brand.

She says, “A huge part of my personal journey was finding clothing, lingerie and apparel options that catered specifically to my needs as a curvy woman. I didn’t find a lot of options in Nigeria, and most often would shop when I travelled. It’s only natural that I take on the challenge of providing comfortable but attractive options for plus-size African women who struggle with finding brands that cater to them.”

 

 

We love what we see and we hope you do too. Weldone Toolz!
