OAP Toolz launches lingerie line Sablier, to inspire and help plus-size women find suitable underwear for themselves. Sablier which is a French word for “Hourglass” was inspired by the OAP’s personal experience as a plus size woman.
During the Sablier launch, she stated,
“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 didn’t 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.”
To show this change and a new wave of growth she decided to not just express it in words but also in actions by launching Sablier. Sometimes all people need is someone setting the pace and giving them the courage to do it.
She expressed her difficulty in finding the right size swimwear and lingerie in Nigeria and decided to study Lingerie and swimwear design at the prestigious London College of Fashion so as to fill in the market gap.
Congrats Toolz! Up Girl Power!
