“GIA/irl is for women who want to feel beautiful, sexy and fashionable…”
GIA/irl was created by plus size model, Gia Sinatra in the spring of 2022. She leveraged her frustrations into a contemporary plus size collection that captures her aesthetic and style, giving the plus size shopper elevated options to accompany their bus and fancy lifestyle.
“I’ve been plus-size my whole life and I’ve always struggled finding clothes that fit me well and are fashionable. I created GIA/irl out of frustration with the sizing in the fashion industry. I felt like I couldn’t express my style with the options I had and I knew so many other women felt the same way.”
And GIA/irl is not for the shy. This brand is for the one who loves to show off their arms, stomach, and legs. With strategic cutouts, asymmetric tops, and playful slits, this collection is a fun one that takes your favorite silhouettes up a notch!
