    While we can say there’s still a lot of work to be done to make our industry more inclusive, plus size clothing brands have come a long way.

    Thanks to models and style icons including Crystal Renn, Ashley Graham and Paloma Elsesser (who recently landed her first vogue cover) walking down the fashion week runways, we’re slowly seeing designers creating cutting-edge styles that aren’t just for size 6-8 women. Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty shows prove that clothes can look good on all sizes, shapes and ages.

    On the high street, there are plenty of plus size clothing brands offering fashionable choices to their customers without breaking the bank.

    What are the best plus size brands?

    While Simply Be and Evans will always be plus-size staples, there are dozens of other brands you can shop online, specializing in everything from dresses to shoes and lingerie. Here’s a roundup of a few favorites.

    1. 11 Honored

    Designed to dress women aged 12 to 24, 11 Honoré is your one-stop shopping destination if you want to invest in designer brands such as Badgley Mischka, Carolina Herrera and Christopher Kane. The site also has its own affordable brand for beautiful, fashionable pieces.

    2. Coyan

    Simplicity is at the heart of COYAN, a premium women’s brand offering a carefully selected collection of silk dresses made in the USA in limited batches. A great sustainable option.

    3. Reformation

    We all know and love Reformation for their gorgeous summer dresses and well-cut jeans. Each style fits up to a size 28.

    4. Mango

    Formerly known as Violeta by Mango, this range is now fully integrated into the Mango collections, covering sizes XXS (4) to 4XL (26).

    5. Time

    Focusing on “confidence and identity, the brand is dedicated to creating contemporary plus-size pieces that drape, frame and flatter the fuller figure”.

    6. Marina Rinaldi

    A member of the Italian Max Mara Group, Marina Rinaldi specializes in high-end, elegant curves, in sizes 12 to 28. Shop the most stunning formal wear here.

    seven. Wild x Fenty

    Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty celebrates fearlessness, confidence and inclusiveness. You won’t find a single piece of boring lingerie here.

    8. just be

    Simply Be has been ahead of the plus size fashion curve for quite some time and is one of the brands with the most styles to buy from (thousands of products last time we checked). Shop evening dresses, plaid blazers and more in sizes 12-32.

    9. New look

    New Look is sizing up to a UK32 on most of its styles, meaning you can shop the same fashionable pieces as everyone else rather than having to go to a different section. But where New Look really wins are the wide shoes, which can be hard to find elsewhere.

    ten. DEAR CURVES

    Dearcurves is the go-to brand for contemporary, minimalist clothing for plus size women. The brand’s signature aesthetic is the creative integration of carefully selected premium fabrics in perfect harmony with traditional African-inspired wax prints. It stocks sizes 14 to 24.

    11. Marks & Spencer

    We’re a little obsessed with M&S’s Curve collection, which features on-trend pieces in sizes 18-32, carefully tailored rather than simply enlarged.

    12. TU clothing

    For affordable plus size clothing, head straight to the Plus Size section of Tu Clothing (their small selection is great too).

    13. Evans

    You can’t go wrong with Evans, another of the plus-size originals. It covers everything from party dresses and workwear to coats and lingerie, for sizes 14 to 28.

    14. Anna Scholz

    Anna is one of the mainstays of the plus size designer industry; A graduate of Central St Martins, Anna has over two decades in the business – no small feat for a big name brand. Famous for her beautiful, unique prints (designed in-house) and easy-to-wear silhouettes, Anna’s pieces are always timeless.

    15. Universal standard

    Universal Standard is all about offering the high essentials option for women in sizes 14-32 and, unsurprisingly, everyone went crazy for this luxury staple line.

    16. Yoek

    Perfect for printed and embellished tunics, palazzo pants and fun prints, Yoek is also known for its leather line.

    17. ASOS Curve

    The clothing selection at ASOS Curve just keeps getting better. First there’s ASOS’ own range, which covers everything from casual basics to plus size wedding guest dresses, and then there’s all the other plus size brands the site carries, which equals over 100 brands and over 4000 styles.

    18. studio eight

    Phase Eight’s sister brand, Studio Eight is their first foray into plus size fashion. Keeping with the signature Phase Eight aesthetic, you can expect great work separates, glamorous evening wear, tape embellishments and fantastic weekend casual wear.

    19. River Island

    The River Island plus section is a treasure trove of notable pieces. From floral pull-on dresses to denim jackets, there’s a huge selection to choose from, for sizes 18-28.

    Does Zara have plus sizes?

    Zara has received negative feedback in the past for not being more sizing inclusive – most of his items come in sizes S to L. Now he has slowly and quietly started adding additional sizes, which range from XS to XXL , on some items, but you’ll get them. The best way to do this is to filter items by size.

    Are there designers who do plus size?

    More and more high-end designers are expanding their size range to meet all of their customers. The likes of Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Ganni, Diane Von Furstenberg, The Row and Erdem offer their designs up to sizes UK22-XXL.
