5 Plus-Size Brands That Aren’t Boring

Nine times out of 10, I’ll be excited to see a brand is extending its sizing only to click on the page and find…womp, womp. Shapeless, boring, dull pieces galore. It’s like some brands think plus-size women only want to wear mumus and plain T-shirts. But some brands are doing it right. Even if they aren’t exclusively a plus-size brand, these companies approach extended sizing with the same enthusiasm and attention to detail as they do for their standard sizes.

Henning

This brand started the way a lot of amazing plus-size brands have, the founder was sick and tired of not being able to find clothing in her size that made her feel confident and beautiful. Henning makes a beautiful collection of luxury plus-size staples like wool blazers, silk dresses and classic coats — without making any compromises on quality, craftsmanship or design.

 

Girlfriend Collective

I probably wear something from Girlfriend every single day. Whether it’s the leggings made out of recycled water bottles or cozy loungewear made of recycled and organic cotton, it has an extensive selection of activewear for sizes XXS-6XL. Plus, everything is sustainable, ethically-made and affordable, making the company a magical unicorn of plus-size fashion.

 

Christy Dawn

Our team loves Christy Dawn’s sustainable brand for its beautiful clothing and impeccable values, so I was stoked when she released her extended-sizing collection. If you have ever wanted to frolic through a field of wildflowers in the perfect prairie dress, look no further.

 

Beaton

I’ve followed Beaton on IG for as long as I can remember, and I’ve always adored its perfectly tailored, yet effortless linen styles. This ethical brand offers linen basics in season-less silhouettes, versatile designs, capsule-friendly staples and are released in small collections to maintain the quality and integrity of its products.

 

Loud Bodies

Loud Bodies is such a fun brand. Every single product is available in sizes XXS-10XL. And if it doesn’t have your size available, the company will custom-make one for you. All of the products are beautifully crafted, packaged and shipped with love by women who believe that style has no size and that you deserve to feel your absolute best.
