Plus Size and Size Inclusive Brands (Australia)

 

Shopping can be overwhelming, triggering and upsetting for anyone in anybody. 

Trying to find clothes to fit, you feel good in, and that express who you are; when you are in a bigger body can feel devastating and impossible. 

Going shopping and not finding anything, in any store to fit your body is a reality for many people. And others feel too uncomfortable to even try. After many conversations with many clients over many years I have started to compile a list which may be a helpful place to start. 

 

Before you get started Shopping ....
  • It is important to know that there is no standard sizes; all stores will be different. 
  • Take measurements and check the sizing chart of each brand and check the return policy! Make use of Afterpay and purchase a couple of sizes so you can return the ones that don't fit without running short on cash flow! 
  • This is a list I have generated from my own experience and from some time on google. I hope to create a list with underwear options soon and please forward me more suggestions. 
  • I have created my own cost key:
    • $  Less than $50 per item
    • $$ $50 - $150 per item
    • $$$ $150 + per item
  • I decided to leave out brands that only went to an 18  or 20 as these are more common and easier to find. 
  • There is no sponsorship or affiliate links - Just wanted to make a list for my clients.

(I apologise my research is based on shopping and dressing for women and people who identify as female. I am happy to look at more male/ masculine options if people would like this) .

Looking for Inspiration?

Look to social media for inspiration. If you are not sure how you want to dress or what you want to say with your style or even how to dress a body shaped like yours - find someone to follow on instagram who looks like you! 

There is some fantastic bloggers/ social media identities who have great ideas. The bonus is that seeing more people who look like you can be very healing. ( But as I say to all clients if people start talking about dieting, weight loss, green smoothies or any other diet culture crap unfollow that shit! You want to follow people that make you feel good!) 

Some hashtags to explore:

#beautyredefined#onourmycurves
#bodypositive#plussize
#bodypositivity #plussizeblogger

More ideas ...

  • Once you find some brands that work for you keep an eye on eBay and Gumtree for some second hand bargains. 
  • Spending some time searching on Etsy, eBay and Gumtree can also be very fruitful.
  • Also have a look for local clothes swaps and plus size second hand markets in your area.
