Summer is here and this body positive brand is encouraging more women to embrace their body this summer – no matter what size or shape.
Luvli Lounge was founded in the UK 2015, at a time when the authenticity of the bodies being displayed on Instagram was beginning to be questioned. People like Khloe Kardashian and Britney Spears have since been slammed for using editing software to ‘tweak’ their physical appearance in photographs before posting them on social media, a tactic previously only employed by the professionals in charge of glossy magazines.
With the quest for the perfect Instagrammable body in full swing, many have rejected the idea that their is one specific body type that all women should aspire to.
The ladies at Luvli Lounge acknowledge this, and want their brand to encourage body positivity and offer affordable lingerie for all women. “We want the women who wear our products to feel empowered and sexy and hope that the confidence they gain then can be mirrored everyday of their lives” states co-founder Elizabeth Jones.
Since launch the brand has been spotted on celebrities such as Lateysha Grace, blogger Jayde Pierce, American actress Lira Galore and model Demi Rose Mawby.
