Aidy Bryant is a plus-size queen who understands the struggle of other plus-size women, like trying to find clothes that fit your body and your style. 

When the SNL star started her own show on Hulu, Shrill, it told an entirely new story about plus-size people that was both raw and authentic. Bryant's character, Annie, begins to tackle her own body insecurities, but being plus-size is only one of the many qualities that make Annie a dynamic and realistic character. 

The actor has kept it real for her plus-size fanbase, and has decided to help out fans who admire her style. Pauline is a new fashion brand founded by the comedian and her stylist Remy Pearce, and the brand features three dresses in line with Bryant's easy, cool, comfortable style. 

The 32-year-old was frustrated with having so few plus-size options, so she went out and made her own. 

Bryant announced on her Instagram that her new online dress shop is up and running, "BIG NEWS: i made some dresses for you guys! from my new clothing line, @shoppaulineny ... it’s a limited run so shop fast! follow @shoppaulineny for updates. love ya! xo, aidy" 

If the line is successful, the brand will continue to produce more chic plus-size options. The dresses are a basic staple necessary for anyone's closet, and can be easily dressed up or down. 

The brand, Pauline, is named after Bryant's aunt who was an inspiration to her growing up. Pauline was "a sturdy lady who did her own thing," Bryant told Refinery29. 

Bryant began to feel comfortable in custom-made clothes that actually fit, but she knew that wasn't available to the average woman. 

In a video on the brand's website, Bryant explained how the concept for this clothing line came to be. Until the comedian had the luxuries of the entertainment industry, aka a stylist and custom-made clothing, she couldn't find anything that truly felt like her style. When fans would admire her new looks and ask where they could get a piece that she wore, it was frustrating to her that there wasn't an easy answer.

"I got such a huge response from lovely ladies... being like 'I want that dress! Where can I get that dress,' and I just felt like it wasn't fair that, yeah, you can't get it... So, basically, my friends and I banded together to make these dresses for you." 

The dress Bryant and Pearce have designed comes in three styles. 

The limited launch of the Lovington dress comes in three different patterns. The dress is an easy-to-wear button-down with pockets. Its biggest complaint so far is a steep price tag: One of these numbers costs $175. 

Bryant wore similar dress styles in her show Shrill, which was renewed for season two and will release in 2020. 

The dresses are based on Bryant's own effortlessly cool style and pieces she's worn in the past. It's clear from a quick scan of Shrill's trailer that her character Annie would absolutely sport the Lovington dress. Shrill has been renewed for a season two on Hulu, but no premiere date has been announced.

The fabric is well-made, breathable, and structured. Plus, it has pockets, which should be a requirement on any dress from now on. Bryant told Refinery29 that her hope is to be able to add a breadth of choice to the plus-size market, because there are so few options out there.

Bryant explained in a promotional video on the brand's website that she had a life-changing experience when she first found clothes that fit her body and style. When she had access to personal stylists and tailors who could customize a dress that reflected her personality and style, it was a feeling she'd never experienced in 25 years. Now she wants to provide that for other women, too.

While the price is steep for one of these breezy shirtdresses, the brand is just starting out. After finding its place in the plus-size market, more options and, perhaps, more price points could become available. Until then, they are quickly selling out online and can be purchased exclusively at paulineny.
