OAP Toolz Oniru set to launch her lingerie for plus size women.The line called Sablier (@shopsablier) is pronounced as Sab-Lee-Ay

Toolz who reflected on her experience growing  up as a full bodied woman further detailed her journey towards accepting her body shape and size.

She says;
The journey to accepting my body has not been easy.As a curvy girl, you tend to feel out of  place, my body wasn't the hot thing back then.I just didn't fit in.I want ladies irrespective of their size or body types, to be confident and love themselves and essentially embrace their beautiful, because beauty is from within and is not dependent on what society dictates.

She further explains that it took her some time to come to a breakthrough seeing herself through a lens a body positivity. That change in perspective was something she wanted to share,but not just through words.

Before her lingerie line launch,Toolz took a course in lingerie and swimwear design at the prestigious and award winning London college of fashion to get in depth  knowledge of the lingerie market,reiterated that her struggle to find brands that cater exclusively to her body size was a motivating factor in creating the Sablier brand.

She says,"A huge part of my personal journey was finding clothing,lingerie and apparel options that catered specifically to my needs as a curvy woman.I didn't find a lot of options in Nigerian, and most often would shop when I traveled. It's only natural that I take on the challenges of providing comfortable but attractive options for plus size African women who struggle with finding brands that cater for them.
