Media personality, Tolu Oniru-Demuren a.k.a TOOLZ has officially launched her lingerie line for plus size women. The line is called Sablier.
According to Toolz in a statement:
“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 body size or body types, to be confident and love themselves, and essentially embrace their beauty, because beauty is from within and is not dependent on what society dictates.”
In Further talks, she passionately explained how it took a hell of time before a breakthrough of seeing herself through a lens of body positivity. That change in perspective was something she wanted to share, but not just through words.
Prior to the launch of her lingerie line, Toolz took a course in Lingerie and swimwear design at the prestigious and award winning London College of Fashion to get in depth knowledge of the lingerie market, reiterated that her struggle to find brands that cater exclusively to her body size was a motivating factor in creating Sablier brand.
She says, “A huge part of my personal journey was finding clothing, lingerie and apparel options that catered specifically to my needs as a curvy woman. I didn’t find a lot of options in Nigeria, and most often would shop when I travelled. It’s only natural that I take on the challenge of providing comfortable but attractive options for plus-size African women who struggle with finding brands that cater to them.”
