We continue to evolve with her, knowing she loves fashion and the latest trends, demands the best fit and function, and wants to feel sexy, confident and happy.”

The images, shot by fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski, signal a major shift for Lane Bryant, focusing on fashion first then leveraging candid and personal lifestyle imagery to illustrate that there isn’t just one type of Lane Bryant woman.
