Although Love Your PEACHES CLOTHING COMPANY was created just a
year ago, designer and owner Janelle Bonlie (the "peach on the beach"!) has
worked in the plus-size fashion industry for more than ten years.
"Have it your way!" says Bonlie of her new
two-piece swimwear collection featured in this issue! Like her clothing line, LYP
swimsuits are all about options. Tops and bottoms are ordered separately so you can mix
and match styles, sizes, and colors to your hearts content! The fabrics are divided
into two price categories: metallic and nonmetallic. The price of your suit will vary
depending on the fabric or combination you choose. Prices range from $60 to $125 per set.
Sizes range from 1X6X (custom sizing is available).
LYP also carries a complete line of clothing, from
catsuits and tops to dresses and clubwear, all with a fun, sexy feel. Her designs are
available through mail order and from her online catalog (www.lypeaches.com). For a free
color catalog, call toll-free 888-274-7499 (U.S. and Canada) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Write to LYP at 5421 11th
St. NE #109, Calgary, Alberta, T2E 6M4, Canada.
Since 1971, H2O WeAR has been manufacturing chlorine-resistant swimwear in Wilton, New Hampshire. Our
company began as a manufacturer of performance suits for swim teams. It has traditionally
been a challenge for full-figured women who enjoying swimming to find swimwear that looks
good and performs well. Stylish suits were not chlorine-resistant and often were
not comfortable or would not stay in place during workouts. Performance suits tended to be
less conservatively cut, lacked support, and were usually available only in smaller sizes.
WaterWear suits combine elements of style and
performance so that women can be confident when swimming laps or participating in a water
exercise class. Our fabric is an all-way-stretch blend of nylon and chlorine-resistant
Lycra. We offer classic styles: tanks, skirted suits, and two-piece suits that look like
one-piece tanks, body suits, shorts, and tights. Most of our full-figure suits are
available up to a size 28. (Ed. note: Women size 30/32 have been comfortable in
WaterWears largest size suits, so give them a try!) Prices range from $39 to $75.
Many of our suits are available in long-torso lengths and back-lined. You can purchase our
suits through our companys catalog. Our customer service staff is located at the
factory, and has terrific product knowledge. For a free catalog and fabric swatch, call
888-321-7848, fax 603-654-6426, e-mail email@example.com,

The Junonia catalog, dedicated to the active lives of women size 14 and up, offers a fresh
mix of active and casual clothes, including Danskin Plus, Gilda Marx, and Champion Woman.
Junonia also designs and manufactures many of its own unique styles, including the
swimsuits shown in this issue. New as of June 1 are swimsuits up to size 5 (3436).
"We were getting many requests in for suits in larger sizes, but we couldnt
find the right bra cup. Finally, we had cups molded just for us. Were very excited
about this," says company founder and president Anne Kelly.
