FatKinis are All the Rage...Awkward...

'Fatkinis' sell out in 48 hours: It’s a huge hit! Plus-size bikinis are being gobbled up even before the swimsuit season begins — as plumper women prove they don’t need teeny-weeny two-pieces to make a splash. The busty beachwear, popularly known as the “fatkini,” is so hot it sold out last week after just 48 hours on the Web site Swimsuits For All, the exclusive retailer of the product. “I want us to not be ashamed of showing some skin,” said Gabi Gregg, 26, the size-18 fashion blogger behind the suit trend. “Plus-size women are told to hide, but we’re allowed to go the beach, too.” ‘FAT’SHION FORWARD: Fashion blogger Gabi Gregg (center) happily flaunts her “fatkini” — a trend (and term) she herself popularized last year on her GabiFresh site.

Gregg popularized the term “fatkini” last summer after showing off photos of herself on her blog in a striped two-piece. “I use the term lovingly,” she said. “To me the word ‘fat’ is value-neutral. Yes, I’m fat, but I can still look great and feel great.” But some buxom beauties who ordered the galaxy-print fatkini won’t get the chance to stylishly strut the beach. On May 17, Gregg announced the company over-sold the style and couldn’t restock it in time for summer — angering scores of bigger gals who protested on the blogger’s Facebook page.

  1. It may not be popular opinion, but I think the cropped top, midriff-baring style is much different now to instill confidence in various ladies- including curvy/plus-sized ladies. I actually don't mind this. It's more about confidence than always believing only slender ladies should wear bikinis... which also explains why these "fatkinis" have a somewhat higher waist with the bottoms. Oh, and I am a fan of Gabi Gregg. Beautiful lady in my view.
