A plus size lingerie line sold exclusively at plus-size store Ashley Stewart. This exclusive line includes shimmering charmeuse chemises and pajamas.

“Gladys Knight has always wanted to do a stylish and sexy plus-size lingerie line. She told everyone, ‘It’s time to put that big T-shirt away.’ But just as importantly she wanted the fabrics to be soft, everything had to be washable and it had to be affordable.” – Marla Minns, Ashley Stewart spokeswoman.

Ashley Stewart stores cater primarily to African-American customers, and the Knightwear line was designed with this clientele in mind. Gladys Knight paid special attention to using bright African colors and ethnic prints.
