How Inclusive Should A Plus Size Clothing Line Be?
How Inclusive Should A Plus Size Clothing Line Be?
Posted April 18

Size inclusivity has been a big issue in the fashion world. With many championing body positivity and similar concepts, brands with water-tight policies about sizes are beginning to tilt towards the possibility of catering for curvier ladies.

On the other hand, curvy celebrities are also doing well to establish clothing brands for plus sizes. An example is celebrity actress Lena Dunham, who (partnering with 11 Honore) recently launched her own plus-size clothing line.

Her line promises to be vintage style, to include 5 clothing pieces – dresses, skirts, tanks, shirts, and while this is an applaudable feat, Lena Dunham’s plus size clothing line has come under fire for providing the only size 12 to 26. Being a curvy girl herself, many expected she would go all out to embrace all plus sizes, including going above size 26 and its equivalent.

While this has caused a major stir in the plus-size community, there are true size-inclusive clothing options from brands (besides Lena Dunham’s) that offer plus size clothing in various sizes above 26.

Here are a few clothing options from such inclusive brands:
