14 Body-Positive Fashion Brands That Are Killing it With Their Plus-Size Clothing
In 2018, no one should have to hear “we don’t have your size.” These forward-thinking fashion brands are on track with making size-inclusive fashion a staple in the industry. From custom-curated subscription boxes to one-stop-shop websites, the future of fashion has never looked better. So read on, and support the body positivity movement, because every body is beautiful. These body-positive fashion brands are killing it with their plus-size clothing.
PremmePlus-size bloggers Nicolette Mason and Gabi Gregg are behind Premme, launched in 2017 and already making its mark amongst celebrities like Tess Holliday.
The label (and the forward-thinking women behind it) are all about dismantling conventional thinking when it comes to plus-size dressing, carrying sizes 12-30.
The latest news for Premme has them giving up on traditional “collections” altogether and offering instead a select few pieces at a time, allowing them to dedicate more time and effort to perfecting the fit and quality versus shelling out heaps of new product in the name of quantity.
