Kelly Shibari Tapped as Sportsheets® Brand Ambassador

Multiple Award-Winning Plus Size Performer & Model to Represent Iconic Company’s Plus Size Line!

LOS ANGELES — Multiple award-winning BBW star Kelly Shibari has been named Sportsheets® International’s brand ambassador for its new plus size line. Designed for sizes 12 to 30, Sportsheets® Plus products feature longer straps, longer and wider supports as well as wider pads, and greater adjustability to assure the perfect, most comfortable fit, with every product handcrafted in the USA.

“I’m honored to have been asked to be Sportsheet’s brand ambassador,” says Kelly. “The company’s heritage as a long-respected manufacturer of quality bedroom accessories, combined with their new foray into creating products for women of size, makes this offer something I am very proud to represent. I’m looking forward to sharing information about Sportsheets Plus with consumers, retailers, and distributors, as well as my fans.”

Shibari’s responsibilities as Sportsheets® Plus Brand Ambassador will be to educate retailers, distributors, and sales staff on how best to market the line to consumers, including terminology, and offer suggestions on new products for the line. In addition, she will be contributing to the company’s continuing brand outreach via social media and other forms of public relations online.

“We’re very excited to be working with Kelly,” Sportsheets® President Julie Stewart says. “Her intelligence and understanding of our target consumer will help us promote our message that all women should ‘rock their curves’ with confidence.”

Sportsheets® introduced the line of plus-size intimate accessories designed to enhance the unique curves of big, beautiful women, Sportsheets® Plus, earlier this month. Developed by women for women, the new line offers couples of size a sophisticated series of strap on harnesses, sexual positioning tools, and sex toys, all while maintaining its eye on fashion, form, and function — because healthy, satisfying sex knows no bounds.

Honored for the second year in a row as BBW Performer of the Year at the 2014 Fanny Awards, Kelly Shibari continues to add to her growing number of accolades.

The list includes superstar adult performers Bonnie Rotten and Asa Akira, as well as mainstream icons Miley Cyrus, Tina Fey, Emily Ratajkowski, and Lizzy Caplan. The Japanese performer with hazel green eyes continues to push the boundaries, and win the hearts, of what mainstream adult consumers have long been told was sexy.

Kelly’s groundbreaking stint as the first plus-size model on the cover of a major men’s magazine with its June 2014 issue garnered immediate and positive mainstream media coverage from Huffington Post, Nerve, The Daily Beast, Examiner, and others. The plus size performer’s recent collaboration on the first-ever sex education film for people of size, jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus Size, with Wicked Pictures and its contract star, writer, producer, and director, jessica drake, received rave reviews and sold out of its initial run.

Kelly is passionate about introducing body positive messages into the media spotlight. The highly accessible Kelly regularly chats with fans and industry peers via her social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook.
