3 New Plus-Size Fashion Lines You’ll Love to Shop
News flash: More than 65 percent of American women wear a size 14 or higher. That’s a clear majority, but you’d never know it based on the relative dearth of options for plus-size clothing. Thankfully, new retailers and designers are entering the market, making it easier for fashion-conscious gals to get in on the fun, regardless of their size. Here are three you need to know.
Despite the stats, there have historically been very few opportunities for plus-size ladies to shop high-end designers. Enter 11 Honoré, a new e-commerce platform aiming to bring luxury clothing to more closets. The site features seen-on-the-runway designs from the likes of Prabal Gurung, Marchesa and Zac Posen in sizes 10 to 20, as well as exclusive capsule collections and collaborations. Just be forewarned, these are fancy-pants designers, so the pieces aren’t cheap.

If 11 Honoré is all about high-end pieces, Canadian retailer Joe Fresh is about adding wearable and stylish pieces to your wardrobe without making you take out a second mortgage. Until recently, the brand has only offered up to size 16. But now, stylish gals can shop an extended range of sizes, from zero to 22 and XS to 3X. Expect easy, casual staples as well as trend-driven pieces you won’t feel bad about retiring after a season or two.
Earlier this summer, the fashion internet was abuzz with news that two super-popular bloggers and body-positive activists, Gabi Gregg (of Gabifresh) and Nicolette Mason, were launching their own line, Premme. The collection—a perfect mix of edgy and ultra-feminine—doesn’t disappoint.
