Gone are those days when plus size fashion was thrown out in the dark and not given any credit let alone the credit it deserved. There has never been a better time to embrace your curves than this moment.
The fashion industry is currently undergoing sweeping changes centered on inclusive values that saw plus-size models walking the runway at some of the most gorgeous and most notable fashion shows in the world.
To top it all, Ashley Graham has reached legit supermodel status, and fashion ad campaigns across the globe are including women of all shapes and sizes in 2017. It’s about time.
Diversity and inclusivity are paramount values, and we’re championing this movement and hoping to see its continual evolution.
Plus-size clothing is often quite hit and miss. The sizing is either totally out of whack or the designs just, well, leave a little to be desired. Oh, and to top things off, they’re normally a way more expensive.
Great. So when we find a label that consistently nails the curvy fashion brief, we find it particularly worthy of sharing.
There are a lot of good things going on in the plus size community and for curvy ladies and great development in the world of fashion is one of them.
A sizable number of brands have made a breakthrough in the industry and come up with some exciting styles of clothing and accessories to help curvy ladies find the clothes that they want to wear and head out of their house.

The Brands Creating Headways
Referred to as the ‘Net-a-Porter for curvy fashion’, Navabi offers one of the biggest ranges of designer plus-size fashion in the world, with styles available in sizes 12-32.
The designer labels mean it’s slightly pricer, but if you can afford to invest in some wardrobe staples, you will find them here. Quality, not quantity, is the mindset here.
A curvy, plus size lady will get everything she wants from Navabi, right from the best of blazers, to some of the most stylish coats right to the asymmetric dresses. Name what you want and Navabi has it in store for you.
Marina Rinaldi occupies a special place at the intersection of high-end fashion and curvy styles, offering more luxurious products for the plus-size shopper.
Its collections are quite elegant and meant to appeal to a premium audience, and therefore come with a higher price tag. However, feast your eyes on their collection and not the price tags as we are sure their collection will sway your attention and money in the right direction.
A lot of cool stuff on the cards, Marina Rinaldi is a brand every plus size lady would love to shop from, and that is exactly what makes this brand so special.
In times of crisis, which brand of plus size clothing do we turn to? We turn to the Boohoo plus range. Not only is the entire line incredibly affordable, but we just love that they offer the exact same clothes but in bigger sizes.
Just because we are a bigger size, doesn’t mean we want to spend our life in kaftans, are we right? We mean, it’s boggling that other stores don’t do this, to be honest, but thankfully some brands are opting for more inclusive offerings.
Slay your day, and become the highlight of the night with the help of some of the best clothes on offer at Boohoo. We are sure, once you see their collection you will be really happy with what they have in store for you.
If you’re a curvy girl for whom fashion is a priority, Elvi is your new best friend. This brand prides itself on premium styles that are always current and prices that are incredibly affordable.
Contemporary trends ranging from the US sizes 14 to 26 are all stocked at Elvi for less than AED 400/SAR 408. Styles in numbers, some of the most stocked color-coordinated dresses Elvi is a pretty awesome brand for shopping for any curvy plus size lady looking to increase her wardrobe collection.
We are the Mango people after all, why not shop from Mango then? Not many people know that Mango has a plus size range but it’s really worth a look. While the other famous Spanish retailer, Zara only goes up to a size 18.
Mango offers its high-quality designs up to a size 26. And, in our experience, their quality also goes the distance. While the pieces might be trend-inspired, their winter coats last us for years on end, meaning it’s easier to justify spending a little more on a piece you love.
Mango has something in store for every curvy, plus size lady out there and we are not exaggerating when we say that theirs is a collection you really want to check out.
ASOS Curve deserves a pat on the back for being one of the first high-street brands to embrace the plus-size shopper. It has long been a reliable source of fashionable basics, key seasonal trends, and even jewelry and footwear selections that fit curvy standards.
It also stocks cult labels like Monki and Pink Clove as well as the plus lines from other brands like River Island, Missguided, Levi’s, Boohoo, and Chi Chi London. Their collection of dresses (and, dresses of all types) is to die for.
Also, with the stock of other brands mentioned above, it makes for easy comparison before making your final decision on what to buy.
When the River Island Plus range finally launched, it didn’t disappoint. Although the selection isn’t as large as ASOS, the well-curated line goes up to a size 28. This should be your go-to shop for each season’s key trend pieces.
Our favorite River Island finds right now? Their dresses. Whether you’re after a cute party dress, or a versatile midi to wear to the office, they’ve got something for every occasion.
And if their collection has a little bit of everything (it is an understatement), why not go check it out when you have time on your hands. Like river flows beautifully, the collection of River Island comprises of a wonderful flow of clothes for curvy, plus size ladies.
Floral-print pajamas, color-blocked dresses, off-shoulder tops, ruffle-trimmed trousers, and all sorts of other stylish pieces are stocked on Eloquii.
Curvy girls love it because of the huge selection that provides everything from dresses and separates to accessories and swimwear.
Eloquii offers American sizes 14 to 28 and a well-stocked selection of petite plus sizes, which are fairly hard to come by.
Why do we think so highly of Eloquii is because of the fact that they have a large ensemble of clothing options available at their store and all of them are of the highest quality.
