BBW Performer of the Year to Showcase
Plus Size Couture Lingerie Harness at Entrenue Booth!
Multiple award-winning BBW adult star and sexual figurehead for curvy Asian girls everywhere, Kelly Shibari, will return as a promotional model for luxury lingerie harness company SpareParts® HardWear at this year’s International Lingerie Show. ILS takes place March 31 – April 2 at the Rio Hotel Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Kelly and the SpareParts® team will be on hand to meet with retailers at the Entrenue booth, located at Booth #515. Kelly will be at the booth from noon to 2 pm Monday, April 1, and Tuesday, April 2, to model the plus-size couture Bella Harness® for retailers, and to answer questions regarding fit and functionality. The curvy beauty is the promotional face for the harness company’s plus size Bella Harness®, and appears on its product boxes.
“I’m honored to be asked back to be a live model for SpareParts®’ plus size Bella Harness® 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.”
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 its 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 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. We had a great time last year, and we have invited Kelly back to model our Bella Harness® rather than use a plus-size mannequin. We encourage 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.”

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™, Deuce™, and the La Palma®, SpareParts’ hand harness. Rounding out the company’s offerings is the packing underwear Pete™ and signature harnesses Tomboi™, Sasha®, Bella Harness®, and Bella Harness® Plus. SpareParts® HardWear continuously designs and develops new products. Once you have tried a SpareParts® HardWear harness, it will be the only one you will ever need!
