ban.do  We all made this together—a collaboration between us and you. Check out our new flexible-sizing apparel below 🙌

We hope you find your light today 🌈 📷: @wang_ziyuu

If you need us, we'll be in our loungewear for the rest of the night.

We're taking over @alfred's instagram stories today! Head over to @alfred to find out a little more about the collab, then head to one of their locations before the end of the month to check it out IRL.

Since this new apparel collection is a true collaboration between us and our community, we asked a few members of the community to bring the collection to life, and had them fill out a little Q&A. We wanted to introduce you to all the faces in our new campaign, so without further ado, please meet @oliviamuenter: "I'm Olivia Muenter and I'm an editor, writer, and all-around digital content creator. I'm passionate about bringing real life to Instagram and self-love to all. I love bright, bold colors and inspiring messages, so naturally I've always been a fan of ban.do and its products! Personally, I love fashion and especially inclusive fashion, so working on a campaign for a product that has a significant size range is super important to me. I feel my best when I'm creating something or wearing a new outfit that I adore (ideally, both!)." Olivia is wearing the wrap skirt in L/XL.⁣

We wanted to introduce you to all the faces in our new campaign, so without further ado, please meet @juliawalck: "Hi! I’m Julia – a graphic designer and Illustrator based in Los Angeles, CA. I like my music loud, and my design louder. From cutting out vintage adverts for collages to sketching typography, I try to infuse as much fun into my designs as I can through conceptual thinking and bright colors. To me, women’s history month means coming together as a community to celebrate progress and support one another. I flip through a lot of old magazine adverts when doing my collage work and it’s insane to see how far women have come just in the last 50 years alone. I think it’s important to look back on the past and recognize our achievements, as well as look ahead to the future and think about how we can progress even further for the next generation." Julia is wearing the pinafore dress in a size L/XL.⁣

We wanted to introduce you to all the faces in our new campaign, so without further ado, please meet @chasingdenisse: "My name is Denisse and I am a full-time creative. I run a photography studio, blog and I am also a creative consultant. have been very vocally obsessed with ban.do for YEARS. I am always inspired by their support towards women and their ability to bring light to important issues while still making it fashion. I wanted to work on this campaign because the industry really needs companies like ban.do who are not just making pretty things, but continuously striving to make their brand better. What I love the most about being a woman is how strong we are. I also love how we can come together and literally raise a village or build an empire together. Women are amazing!" Denisse is wearing the jumpsuit in a M/L.⁣

We wanted to introduce you to all the faces in our new campaign, so without further ado, please meet @jamie_jetaime: "I’m a plus size style creative that encourages folks to express themselves regardless of size or age. I founded a body positive group in Pittsburgh called YinzBopo. I love ban.do’s aesthetic (the colors!) and their commitment to mental health awareness. I have been waiting for the day that ban.do released plus sizes. I know this is the moment many of us plus size folks were waiting for! I feel my best when I’m relaxing in fresh air, with nature sounds, and a good book. I’m an introvert who grew up in the woods, so I require a bit of reprieve from city life to be my best self."⁣
Jamie is wearing the jumpsuit in size 2x/3x.⁣

We wanted to introduce you to all the faces in our new campaign, so without further ado, please meet @dejafoxx. Deja Foxx is an 18 year old activist, organizer, and badass. She went from homelessness in high school to the front of the reproductive justice movement and dean’s list at Columbia University and plans one day to make her way to the White House. From Deja, "Ban.do understands that we look our best when we’re feeling confident and comfortable and in every detail- from a large range of sizes to including pockets- they make sure that their products bring those aspects to life. I just recently announced my new initiative the @GenZGirlGang! The world is changing and in a world of social media and infinite connection the way we relate to one another and build community is changing too. This community is redefining sisterhood for a new generation by creating and sharing opportunities, learning from and teaching one another, and bridging generations."

We wanted to introduce you to all the faces in our new campaign, so without further ado, please meet @jordanheltsley: "I am the Customer Relations Supervisor for ban.do. I'm here to help make sure our customer experience as good as it can possibly be. I work out of our corporate office, so I am in a really great long distance relationship with our creative team in Los Angeles. I hope they still find me as charming as I find them (EDITOR'S NOTE: WE DO!). I feel my best when I am not trying to be something I'm not. Social media has made comparison such a hard habit to shake but I am really working on that. Oh, and when I am hydrated. If you're reading this please drink some water."

We wanted to introduce you to all the faces in our new campaign, so without further ado, please meet @sunkissis: "Bonjour, I am Elizabeth, a stay-at-home mom to a rad eight year old girl, wife to a brilliant artist and recent expat who sold our house in Los Angeles to follow my dream of living in Paris, France. I write about our experience moving abroad on my blog www.sunkissis.com and travel with my family as often as possible. I have been a long time fan of Ban.do simply because I love color, fun, and strong girl community. I have always had a fondness for accessories. I love how you feel a sense of inclusivity when you engage on Ban.do's social media. Like you aren't going to be judged by mean girls. I also love all things bright and cute so this was the perfect match for me." Elizabeth wears the pinafore dress in 2X-3X.⁣

A couple years ago, we decided we wanted to design clothes beyond tees and sweatshirts—styles that were versatile, adaptable, and looked (and felt!) great on everyone. We’d never done anything like it before, so we wanted to include you in the process. You filled out surveys and told us what kinds of silhouettes and colors you liked, as well as tried on samples and gave us incredibly helpful feedback. What resulted is something we’re extremely proud of: a true collaboration between us and you. Swipe through to check out a few of the women that made this collection come to life, and let us know if you have any questions about the collection, contributors, or fit in the comments or DMs - we’ll be here all day. Pictured here is @chasingdenisse (M/L) and @juliawalck (L/XL).
