“I’m honored to be asked to be a live model for SpareParts®’ plus size harnesses at ILS,” says Kelly. “I look forward to helping retailers understand the comfort, fit, and luxurious design details that exist in SpareParts® harnesses, specifically for the plus-size market.”

The curvy beauty was recently selected by SpareParts® as the promotional face for the harness company’s plus-size line, and will be appearing on Plus product boxes for SpareParts®’ Bella Harness® as well as Tomboi™ and Sasha™ harnesses. Kelly’s image will also appear on promotional and marketing materials for the plus size products.

SpareParts®’ couture lingerie harnesses, which premiered at the 2012 ILS, met with resounding acclaim by retailers and distributors alike.

“The first time I saw these harnesses, I was completely blown away!” says Coyote Days, purchasing manager for Good Vibrations. “Not only are they functional, but they’re comfortable and incredibly stylish…a.k.a HOT!”

“SpareParts® couture harnesses are the sexiest thing I’ve EVER seen,” says Lisa Mazurek. “When I saw them on the runway, I literally got goosebumps. They are stunning; a must, must, must have!”

SpareParts® HardWear creates beautiful and stylish harnesses, versatile and suitable for a variety of uses and types of functionality. The harnesses are fashionable, sexy, and comfortable; each and every harness is hand crafted using high quality materials. SpareParts® HardWear makes harnesses to suit the wearer, whatever the size or shape. Proprietary to SpareParts® is their revolutionary fit instructional video, which allows wearers to properly select the proper fit not only to match a numerical clothing size, but also for the kind of body shape they embody. All SpareParts® HardWear products are proudly made in the USA and come with a warranty.

“We always have a wonderful time at ILS,” says SpareParts® HardWear founder Tres. “We love chatting with retailers, both established and new, about our lingerie harnesses. This year, rather than use a plus-size mannequin, we invite retailers to stop by the Entrenue booth to see Kelly in our harnesses, and to inquire as to how our products can be best marketed to plus-size consumers.”

“We are absolutely thrilled to now be offering the Bella Harness from SpareParts®,” says Entrenue President Joe Casella. “We are such a HUGE fan of the SpareParts® brand, and of Tres in particular, with her vision, consistency and passion to improve lives sparing no detail along the way. We know the Bella Harness® was a labor of love, and the end result is nothing short of spectacular – bringing high fashion, sex appeal, and positive body image together in this amazing design.”

The much-sought-after SpareParts® HardWear harnesses are available nationwide as well as in Canada, Europe, Australia, Asia, and the Carribean, and are regularly cited as retailers’ top selling harnesses. Of the beautiful harnesses the company offers, the Joque™ and the Deuce™ have been nominated by AVN for its prestigious industry trade “O” Awards. Currently, SpareParts® offers plus size variations for its bold and athletic Tomboi™, and two styles from its Couture Lingerie harness line – the luxuriously femme Bella Harness®, and the sweet and spicy Sasha® – which both feature removable garters in addition to the classic O-ring. The Joque™, Deuce™, and Theo™ harnesses also come in plus sizes.

The Curves Have It: Curvy Kate Launches Star in a Bra North America


                    by Samantha Hutchens

Since Curvy Kate’s birth in 2009 the brand has been an advocate for the fuller figure, using real women to model their lingerie through their Star in a Bra competition. With seven successful runs in the United Kingdom, Australia and United States of America, Curvy Kate once again brings their competition across the pond to the United States and Canada in search of a new figure.
Armed with a passion for curves and gorgeous lingerie, Curvy Kate takes aim at modern concepts of beauty and industry standards. By using naturally curvy models, they believe they can better relate to their target audience and prove to the world how gorgeous the curvy figure looks in lingerie. The competition promotes body acceptance and healthy figures, which many believe are lacking in the fashion industry. 

Winners of Star in a Bra have the opportunity to sign a twelve month modeling contract with Curvy Kate in addition to a year’s worth of the brand’s lingerie. Being the face of the brand is more than just product shoots. It also includes traveling to trade shows and attending brand-sponsored events. 
Star in a Bra will open on September 3rd and will remain open until October 3rd. Entrants must be at least 18 years of age, live in the USA or Canada, have natural breasts, wear at least a D cup and not hold a modeling contract with any other company. There are no height or weight requirements or restrictions allowing women who would normally be rejected in other fashion avenues to compete for the title of Curvy Kate. To participate in Star in a Bra, women will need to “like” Curvy Kate on Facebook and enter several photos of themselves in lingerie or swimwear as well as an essay explaining why they would make a great Curvy Kate. 
Contestants will then be narrowed down to 20 by the Curvy Kate team and interviewed. Votes from Curvy Kate fans from the October 9th to October 22nd will narrow the race down to 5 women who will then be treated to a professional makeover and photo shoot. The public will then be asked to vote again from November 12th to November 19th and a winner will be announced on November 21, 2013. 
Producing lingerie in over 96 sizes with cups in D-K, Curvy Kate designs fun, fashion-forward bras, panties and swimwear for the full-bust crowd. Expert engineering ensures a perfect fit and great support, even in larger cup sizes. Their bras are bright and colorful and offer a greater variety than what is commonly seen in over-D bras. Bras retail for $65 to $75.
