Candice Huffine’s Size-Inclusive Collab With Fortnight Lingerie Is All About Female Empowerment

When it comes to lingerie, we’re used to being bombarded with images of the same body type (think Victoria’s Secret Angels, with and without wings). But Toronto-based intimates brand Fortnight wants to change all that. It just dropped its first-ever outside collab with plus-size model and champion for body positivity Candice Huffine.

Huffine was first introduced to the brand after wearing a bra by Fortnight for a photoshoot and was hooked. Her constant praise of the line landed her a collab with the company. The 12-piece leopard-centric capsule features such super sexy essentials as a longline bra, bodysuit, balconette, slip and more, designed to make all women feel confident.

Sizes range from 32A to 32G in bras and small to XXL in underwear, slips and bodysuits, “because there’s a place for every body in this world,” as Huffine so succinctly puts it. The price range is pretty respectful too, with nothing over $178.

The model admits she’s still working with Fortnight on making things even more inclusive. “We are taking extra time to engineer additional sizes, specifically in the bras, to ensure amazing fit and perfection! Lingerie is very scientific and everything should be right for something we wear so close to our body with an important job to do. So more to come in due time, naturally,” Huffine shared with HuffPost.

Another amazing component of this collection is that every part of the design process involved women. Even the lookbook’s photographer was a woman (Lily Cummings). “It’s been an incredible experience creating with a brand I admire and love. For women, by women, every piece was made with us in mind,” Huffine proudly declared on her Instagram. 

The Candice Huffine x Fortnight collection is available now on Fortnight’s site, so stock up before this collab sells out.
