What is the Viola Fit?
Our lovely friend and model for our exclusive Viola Fit, Kenya Bradshaw, tells all about why she loves the fit and how she became a Viola customer. Need a refresher? Viola is our exclusive fit specifically designed for body types 1-2 larger in the hips than bust.
ELOQUII: WHAT’S A SURPRISING FACT ABOUT YOU?
KENYA: I am currently training to complete my first half-marathon. I will be walking the St. Jude Half Marathon on December 2nd. Thick chicks can be fit too!
E: WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT MODELING?
K: Modeling allows you to explore new parts of your personality. 95% of the time I’m kinda nerdy, but modeling allowed me to find the bold and fierce side. I think every woman should set up a professional photo shoot at least once in her life. Getting your hair and makeup done professionally will feel like happiness.
E: HOW DID YOU FIRST LEARN ABOUT THE VIOLA FIT?
K: Viola is based on my body shaped so I have been a part of it since ideation. I remember giving feedback about the gap in the back of my pants and how I couldn’t wear a sheath dress because I have thick thighs. You know I believe thick thighs save lives. If we get stuck in the winter I will survive. LOL
E: HAS THE VIOLA FIT CHANGED THE WAY YOU SHOP?
K: Yes! Viola is my go-to. I usually buy every piece in the collection but I wish that other pieces would come in Viola.
E: TOP STYLING TIPS FOR WOMEN WITH VIOLA BODY SHAPE?
K: Previously the best way for Violas to shop was to buy separates. I think that’s still a good fallback but the Viola fit allows you to buy whole pieces. Like sheath dresses and straight skirts. I used to just wear A-line skirts, but now the Viola fit gives me the ability to wear a nice pencil skirt. I also love being able to wear pants and sit down knowing my goods aren’t showing.
E: WHAT WILL YOU BE WEARING THIS FALL?
K: Viola everything! I am most excited about the pink Velvet Slip Dress. It’s happiness in a dress. I also love the blue Tie Neck Peplum Blazer. I’d wear a bow or sequins everyday if I could and this jacket transitions perfectly from a meeting to Friday night fun.
