When people mention plus size clothing, most of them would still get the impression of middle-age-woman-ish, old fashion clothes, which is very true for most of the well known brands. Why is plus size fashion being despised by the real fashion world? Obviously, it’s because of the lack of great design that would even make the straight size women want to get their hands on the clothes.Apart from forever 21 Plus and Asos Curves, I would say most of the brands offer only very simple or more mature items; be it Lane Bryant, Torrid, eShakti, Simple Be, Kiyonna, Eloquii etc. Especially when curves give out a more mature vibe than any lean woman would, the same style as what everyone else is making just won’t cut. I think it’s time for a revolution! Oh my science, btw colour block is sooo boring(rants of hundred words after deleted), stop making them everywhere already!
We plus size girls need more edgy designers to do plus size clothing, As the above are totally not enough for any curvy fashionistas!
One day, I would like to see in the plus size world, designs which can be compared to Gareth Pugh, Viktor & Rolf or even Mcqueen, one day… Ok that’s going to be too far of a dream but at least elegant like Rodarte, Lanvin or Erdem??? Something that makes our straight size fellow women scream “I wish I could wear that but they don’t carry my size! 🙁 ” like we said a million times.
While I can only dream for now, let’s take a look at some refreshing styles from various brands and designers below.
