Soma launches Brand Refresh with a Strong Message of Inclusivity and Comfort

Chico’s FAS’ (NYSE: CHS) intimate apparel brand, Soma® announces new brand refresh that embraces beauty, strength and creativity from the inside out.

“Now more than ever, women are seeking comfort and a good support system in every facet of their life,” says Kimberly Grabel, Senior Vice President, Marketing. “We’re embracing our evolution and know a woman’s greatest strength lies within. The new campaign showcases an example of empowerment and modern femininity.”

Soma is the only national intimate apparel omnichannel retailer dedicated to comfort and inclusivity for women. The brand is devoted to its dominance as an industry leader in inclusivity, using a wide range of diverse models and influencers, including various ages, shapes, sizes and ethnicities.

“It’s important for our logo to evolve as we do. We took the capital S of our previous logo, in Snell font, and turned it on its side – just as we have done with the new brand vision,” states Grabel. “The flourish of the S symbolizes the curve of a woman’s body, the softness of our latest collection and the ability to shift into something new.”

For over 15 years, the women-led design team has crafted bras and panties, pajamas and loungewear that aim to make women feel comfortable and confident. Soma understands that women want and deserve fashion and function without compromise.

Soma continues to embrace ultimate comfort by launching a new modern loungewear collection, Soma WKND™. The Soma WKND™ collection consists of multiple fabrications that are extremely soft and lightweight. Soma WKND™ also includes styles with sustainable eco-yarn that are comprised of soft recycled yarns made from plastic bottles which require less energy. The collection is available in a variety of colors in sizes XS-XXL and ranges from USD 34-USD 89.

“We support our customer through all phases of her life and encourage her to find joy in the everyday details,” continued Grabel. “Now more than ever, she is looking for comfortable solutions to fit her current lifestyle.”
