In 2021, size inclusivity is still an ongoing project in the fashion industry. With the popularity of Shein and other online shopping platforms, it’s been easier to find garments that come in a full range of sizes. But those who are looking to buy locally still find it a struggle—and don’t even get us started on body-shaming sellers.
Swimwear shopping shouldn’t be extra hard for our fat and skinny pals. Colourette’s outspoken CEO Nina Ellaine Dizon-Cabrera is familiar with the struggle and hopes to help out with her new brand called Every Body.
Dizon-Cabrera announced the upcoming launch of Every Body with a personal note. “Dahil nahihirapan ako makabili ng magandang swimsuit sa size ko, gumawa nalang ako. 😅,” she tweeted on Dec. 6. “Here’s Every Body. A Filipina-led clothing brand that caters to sizes 5XL-2XS. Yup, 10 sizes. ❤️👙 Soft launching on Dec 15!”

Dizon-Cabrera is a known body and skin positivity advocate who isn’t shy about shutting down her detractors. In the past, she has also butted heads with President Rodrigo Duterte’s supporters (DDS) who retaliated by using a meme to make fun of her. She did get the last laugh with a donation drive that raised over a million pesos for those affected by last year’s series of typhoons.
