In recent years, the fashion world has become much more body inclusive, with brands expanding and curating clothing lines, swimwear, and shapewear for plus-size bodies (and it’s about damn time!). It goes without saying: All body types deserve to be seen and celebrated as they are. A diverse size range allows for plus-size customers to not only style themselves appropriately, but also to enjoy themselves while doing so—and remember, fashion is supposed to be fun! Let’s be real: No one should have to experience a dressing-room meltdown because their respective jean size is unavailable.
While beauty standards have certainly evolved, a stark disparity between plus-size and straight-size options persists. Unlike folks who fit into standard sizing, who have an infinite amount of chic selections at their fingertips, all too often plus-size individuals are left with dowdy, archaic choices. Fashion is a means for self-expression and individuation. It’s a key component of life that people of all shapes and sizes should be able to build a meaningful relationship with and enjoy. Not to mention, the age-old saying “Look good, feel good” holds more truth than meets the eye. Research has shown that our moods, self-esteem, and self-acceptance are directly impacted by what we wear. In fact, a study conducted at the University of Hertfordshire in 2012 showed that women dress for happiness, and are prone to wearing clothes that made them feel good when they’re in a positive state of mind.
That’s why we rounded up the best plus-size brands! Whether you’re on the hunt for plus-size bras, dresses, pajamas, and a whole lot more in between, we’ve got you covered with these 20 trendy plus-size clothing brands.
