20 Trendy Plus Size Clothing Brands

In recent years, the fashion world has become much more inclusive, with brands expanding and curating clothing, swimwear and shapewear lines for plus-sized bodies (and about time!). It goes without saying: all body types deserve to be seen and celebrated as they are. A diverse size range allows plus size customers to not only style their hair appropriately, but also have fun while doing it – and remember, fashion is supposed to be fun! Let’s face it: no one should have to go through a meltdown in their dressing room because their respective jean size isn’t available.
While beauty standards have certainly evolved, a big disparity persists between plus size and straight size options. Unlike standard-size people, who have an endless supply of chic selections at their fingertips, too often plus-size people end up with old-fashioned, archaic choices. Fashion is a means of self-expression and individuation. It is a key part of life that people of all shapes and sizes should be able to form a meaningful relationship with and enjoy. Not to mention that the age-old saying “Look good, feel good” holds more truth than meets the eye. Research has shown that our mood, self-esteem and self-acceptance are directly influenced by what we wear. In reality, a study conducted at the University of Hertfordshire in 2012 showed that women dress for happiness and are inclined to wear clothes that make them feel good when in a positive mood.
That’s why we’ve rounded up the best plus size brands! Whether you’re looking for bras, dresses, pajamas and more, we’ve got you covered with these 20 plus size fashion brands.
