When Amber Tolliver set out to create Liberté, a premium lingerie brand, inclusivity was top-of-mind. The supermodel-turned-business-women, who self-funded the brand’s February 2019 launch, created her debut collection with 24 bra sizes ranging from 32C-38H.
During an interview with Curioxo, Tolliver said she dreamt up the idea for Liberté after making the transition from “a straight size model to a curve model.”
“I never noticed the disparity between what was available for ‘standard sizes’ and the lack of availability for anything over a D cup,” she said. “I was blindsided by the lack of sizes and more so the disappearance of styles that I liked and felt would compliment my personal style. “
The New York-based brand, produced by artisans from all over the globe, uses high-quality fabrics like Italian lace and antimicrobial, moisture-wicking micro-jersey.
