Remi Bader is known for her personable and honest TikToks, her incredible sense of humor and relatability, and of course her “realistic hauls.” She isn’t shy about calling brands out on size discrepancies or lack of size ranges. “What I’ve learned this last year compared to the rest of my life is really knowing your measurements,” Remi says. She explains that knowing your bust, waist, and hip measurements will help you discover your best size match for any brand.
She’s using her TikTok platform to make consumer fashion accessible for all. Bader is a brand ambassador and size consultant for Victoria’s Secret PINK and in August, launched her self-titled collection with Revolve (which she might have manifested). The Remi x Revolve collection features a groundbreaking size range from XXS to 3X, a first for the retailer for an in-house brand partnership. It’s filled with versatile essentials, elevated matching sets, and dresses that can take you from day to night. One of her favorite pieces is an eye-catching black zebra print duster. “It’s lightweight, but it’s definitely like fall vibes, and you can throw it over any outfit from jeans and a bodysuit or a corset and black pants,” she says. With this line, she proves that being fashionable shouldn’t be limited to a certain size range.
From picking the colors, patterns, and themes to figuring out the sizing chart and choosing models, Bader had full responsibility when designing the collection, and she loved it. “[Revolve] listened to what I said and wanted. Being able to have a say when I’ve never been able to have a say before is a really cool feeling,” she explains. She understands the consumer’s and brand’s perspectives and advocates for hiring fit models of diverse body types, liaising customers’ feedback, and for brands to put in effort, especially on the marketing front. Bader’s passion and transparency helped her connect with followers, and brands followed suit. “Speaking up about how I felt in my frustrations slowly turned into me now having a clothing line with a huge retailer, affecting other retailers as well,” she says.
In addition to sharing her design process, Bader let us in on some of her favorite must-have shopping discoveries. From statement-making Prada Rectangular Mirror sunglasses to the comfiest pair of PINK sweatpants and Hoka sneakers, these are her current product obsessions.
