Media personality, Tolu ‘Toolz’ Oniru-Demuren recently launched Sablier, a fuller bust lingerie line. Sablier (Sab-lee-ay) – French for ‘hourglass’ – was founded to cater to the plus-size market. Toolz who reflected on her experience growing up as a full-bodied woman further detailed her journey towards accepting her body shape and size.

It is a lingerie & shapewear line providing sensual lingerie for the modern and discerning African woman.The brand seeks to embody confidence, female empowerment and self-expression, particularly among plus-size women.

“The journey to accepting my body hasn’t really been a smooth one. Growing up, I wasn’t particularly confident. As a plus-size and curvy girl, you tend to feel out of place – my body type wasn’t the hot thing back then. I just didn’t fit in. I became very self-conscious – I thought my hips were too wide…my bum was too big, and I was on the short side. My experience strengthened me and gave me a voice – one which I have decided to use in empowering and boosting the confidence of plus-size women like me – those who are currently in a physical and psychological battle to accept their own bodies.” – Tolu “Toolz” Oniru.
