A look at size inclusive brands

The diversity of model sizes and shapes in the Spring 2022 Valentino Haute Couture collection was the inspiration for considering the options for curvier women.

Size inclusivity is something many brands still seem to struggle with particularly at the high end. This is despite the data on the actual size of the people in the market for clothes.

Most people are not size zero and cashed up people are looking for brands that will serve their needs. This does not mean shapeless bland clothes or ultra-loud prints but ultra-stylish looks.

So here are some options from brands that carry clothing in a wide range of sizes to those that specialise in catering for curvier women.

SIZE INCLUSVIE BRANDS

For relaxed casual wear try Dijo Clothing for some boho chic or Adrift Clothing, which goes to a 4XL.

For a quality mid-priced range clothing try Leina and Fleur. Based in Queensland they go up to Size 24. A new brand you may not have heard of is Commonry which has been created by Seed Heritage. Commonry offers stylish separates in a muted colour palette up to Size 22. You can create a stylish business look in their outfits. City Chic has been around for some time and specialises in plus size clothing up to Size 24. City Chic has a wide product offering covering day wear and formal wear as well as lingerie and shoes.

The Curve Project came up in the research for this blog. It carries the brands Poetic Gypsy; Sunday in the City; Something & Olivia; Pink Dusk and Indigo Tonic which together span relaxed casual dressing to some good business separates and something a bit more dressy.

Online you will find Boohoo and ASOS have curvy ranges. While Cooma local Birdsnest also has a plus size/curvy range were some pieces go to Size 24. Unfortunately, many of the images Birdsnest use are of small models and so it is a bit of the work of your imagination to work out what the pieces might look like on you.

Moving up the price scale there is Marina Rinaldi which is part of the Max Mara Group offers understated and stylish elegance up to XXL.

If Marina Rinaldi feels a bit staid for you try the Danish Brand Ganni which goes up to size 18 in some cases.

Looking overseas a recent Harper’s Bazaar article looked at 14 Brands making Plus Size Clothing check it includes brnds like Vince that ships to Australia.

Marie Claire UK covered the field of British options some of which are available for shipping to Australia and Vogue had some good suggestions for size inclusive lingerie options.
