Simply Be Island

Join Our Self-Love Revolution

Models at 'Simply Be Island' in Portugal

Despite demands for more diversity within mainstream media and the fashion industry, people with thin, toned and muscular bodies are still presented as the ideal. The image-obsessed reality show Love Island has come under fire yet again for the lack of body diversity in its line-up, leaving many viewers disappointed (but not surprised). As an antidote to this, we invited some friends to join us at Simply Be Island for a relaxing retreat dedicated to self-care, well-being and inner confidence.

We’re all guilty of getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life and we forget to take time out for ourselves. Our getaway to the stunning East Algarve in Portugal was all about the importance of nourishing your mind, body and soul - something we all need prioritise. The fun-packed itinerary included a Portuguese ceramics class and boat trip, as well as early morning meditation, massages and downtime by the pool.

Here at Simply Be, we champion women of all shapes and sizes - and we’re loud about it too. From our plus size revolution at London Fashion Week to our Ahead of the Curve panel discussion, we’re proud to be leading the way in empowering women to love their bodies. 


Whether you’re jetting off to a gorgeous destination this summer or heading out for cocktails with the girls, we have all your fashion needs taken care of. Our sizzling summer collection includes plus size swimwear, beachwear and occasionwear to help you showcase your shape in style.
