“Loving yourself is the greatest revolution.”

Leebex is changing the narrative with a strong message to their range, FAT! For too long, the word fat has been attached to a negative connotation, but after this bold showcase at Xperience AFI we believe a revolution is on the way.

The collection gave us an array of body hugging threads, silhouette defining dresses and sexy AF body suits. The items are designed to inspire confidence with the use of bright and nude colours and a touch of bold prints.

Leebex shows a good understanding of the needs of plus sized women and that is reflected in the choice fabric and the design of the garments, they are flattering to the female form, direct attention to the curves while still looking comfortable. Even though most of the items catered for more casual occasions one could creatively style the outfits to fit whatever affair you are going to.
