About

Viva Voluptuous unveils a new, gorgeous range of plus size swimwear. 

Www.vivavoluptuous.com

We launched a gorgeous set of plus size lingerie in 2017 that has been extremely well received by the plus size community. 

With 55% of British women and 67% of US women being plus size, we feel it's a shame how little choice curvy ladies have. 

As we already manufacture lingerie in the EU, we decided to start doing swimwear too. We sell on our website, Asos marketplace, amazon, eBay and Etsy. We also recently secured a number of contracts with independent retailers and we expect bigger B2B contracts in 2018. Our lingerie has an almost 0% return rate, which is phenomenal! The swimsuit sizes are graded exactly the same - we are super keen to be consistent in sizing. 

We did customer research and designed a leopard print and mermaid to start with. Social media exploded with excitement! This is just a start and more will follow. 

We already sell around 15% internationally and we are working with the UKTI to expand to the USA in the next 12 - 24 months. We get weekly publicity from manages to newspapers and have an in house press officer. 

These swimsuits are being manufactured with a delivery date of early March 2018. 

The RRP is £70 for leopard, £57 bikini and £75 Tankini. So all rewards at an early offer discount.

Risks and challenges

These are being manufactured as we speak. Although we have around 450 tops and one pieces on order, if sales grow wildly, we will need around 4 weeks (2 weeks fabric printing and 2 weeks manufacturing) extra. However, we can raise (pre sell at discount from RRP) at least £20,000 before we may need more. We will review the project regularly to try and anticipate that.
