Avon develops genderless underwear
ACCORDING to an international study carried out in 2015 by the United Nations for LGBT equality, 10% of the world’s population identifies as part of the LGBTQ + community. This encompasses the entire spectrum of the community, including non-binary individuals who do not fall into traditional male and female binary norms. This diversity has yet to be fully reflected by the clothing industry, with gender-neutral options still rare among fashion retailers, even more so when it comes to intimate apparel. Avon takes a step forward with its first line of intimate sexless clothing, the Avon Limitless Collection, designed with quick-dry breathable materials and a universal fit. “If we can expand our support in terms of sizes, breast shapes and life stages, what is stopping us from expanding our support to include gender identity? Says Avon Marketing Director Anna Garces. “Avon has been producing high quality, innovative and affordable designs for Filipinos and Filipinos for decades. It is right to extend our years of intimate expertise to meet the needs of all gender identities and sexual orientations. The Limitless Collection features gender neutral silhouettes that can literally be worn by anyone with breathable fabric that provides a soft four-way stretch with every wear. The Andy 2-in-1 Ultra-stretch boxer brief is available in black and gray versions, designed with a double-layered panel on the crotch area so it can fit anyone with or without a penis. On the other hand, the Andy ultra-stretch supportive top can be used as a minimizer, a molded bra, or even just a relaxed top with removable molded cups and stretch hooks and eyelets, so everyone can wear it with or without breasts. The Limitless collection can be purchased online at onthop.ph or through Avon representatives.
