BBW Performer of the Year & Fetish Model to Showcase
Plus Size Harnesses at Entrenue Booth!
Award-winning BBW fetish model and performer Kelly Shibari will appear alongside luxury lingerie harness company SpareParts® HardWear at this year’s International Lingerie Show. ILS is held at the Rio Hotel and Convention Center in Las Vegas, September 23 – 25.
The SpareParts® team will be on hand to meet with retailers at the Entrenue booth, located at Booth #515. Kelly will be on hand in the early afternoons Monday, September 23, and Tuesday, September 24, to model the plus-size Bella Harness® for retailers and to answer questions regarding fit and functionality. Entrenue is the exclusive US distributor for SpareParts® HardWear.
“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.

SpareParts® HardWear is a US based company specializing in creating beautiful and durable harnesses. Inspired by the lack of variation of harnesses on the market back in 1999, SpareParts® HardWear set about to invent the ultimate harness. The company was driven to create a harness that could fit every woman, whatever their size and shape – a sexy and stylish product, comfortable and versatile for a variety of functions. SpareParts® HardWear wanted to produce handcrafted harnesses using high quality materials…and they have succeeded. After years of research, development, and testing (and a keen desire to get it right!), SpareParts® HardWear officially launched the first and signature product in 2005 – the Joque™ harness, followed by the Pearl Theo™, and the La Palma™, SpareParts®’ hand harness. Rounding out the company’s offerings are signature harnesses Deuce™, Pete™, Sasha®, Tomboi™, and the Bella Harness®. SpareParts® HardWear is continuously designing and developing new products. Once you have tried a SpareParts® HardWear harness, it will be the only one you will ever need! For more information, visit http://www.myspare.com/.
