(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). Exes and Ohs Intimates is a lingerie collection specifically created to accommodate a wide range of body types, including a variety of difficult to fit silhouettes.
“I started designing lingerie after working at a local lingerie boutique for a couple of years,” Kinsey Tolley wrote BODY in response to questions. “I noticed there was a serious gap in the market for lingerie that easily fits women’s unique body types. Women that were a size 2 with breast implants would have to purchase a large or extra-large fitted chemise with molded cups just to fit their bust. Women, like me, that were blessed with more booty than boobies were also at a loss, trying to fill cups of chemises that were big enough to fit our hips. So, Exes and Ohs was created to flatter ANY women’s unique body type.”
The owner and designer has a degree in apparel design and manufacturing from Texas Tech University, and makes all her lingerie in Dallas. She continued the description of her line noting that “As women, we’re rarely made as one size from top to bottom. Designs like the Alex Babydoll and Kent Teddy could fit a bust size from a 32A all the way up to a 38DDD and beyond, while sticking with simple sizing of small, medium, and large. I designed all of the panties to have a stretch lace waistband because it flatters women’s hips. Also, all of my matching thongs have a lace waistband and were designed to not only be worn with the lingerie itself, but on a daily basis (unlike those awful, high waisted, 1980s thongs with the thin waistband that digs into even the smallest of hips).”
Tolley described the many design details that make her lingerie unique, adding that “Each style name in my line is named after Exes, or ex boyfriends, and Ohs, which are positive men in my life.”
The designer noted that “Designs like the Jared Chemise and Reed Bralette have elastic at the bottoms of the cups and tie in the front, so you can adjust the underneath of the bust as needed. Designs like the Travis and Drew Bralette Sets tie in the back with ribbon for ease of fit for small or wide rib cages (and guys like the ease of getting them off too!). The Jared Chemise and Travis Bralette are also made of stretch lace to stretch to fit booties and boobies. My signature “Loungerie,” or soft and sexy loungewear, has some of my top selling designs. These were made for women to wear and feel sexy to go to bed in—without being uncomfortable. The Andrew and Garrett Robes are the same style but made of different fabric. They both have angled sleeves and high-low hems to be able to fit any height of woman and are able to be worn year ‘round.”
Retail prices on the company’s website range from $30 for a set of three thongs, to a robe for $92, teddies for $68 and $86, chemises for $58 and $79 and bralette sets ranging from $66 to $88.
“I truly designed my line to where any woman, no matter her body type, can find something to fit and flatter her body and instill her with the confidence that lingerie is supposed to bring.” She added that she has taken steps to emphasize the special characteristics of her lingerie in her promotional photography. “Both models in my photos both wear a medium, yet have very different body types as well.” She added, “I also 100% believe in NO Photoshop.”
