Luxury fashion isn’t just for one body type! Plus-size gals want in on the plus size designer clothes, too! I’ve spent most of my life bargain-hunting for affordable plus-size clothing, scouring the sales racks since I got my first job at 14. But recently, I decided to treat myself a little and invest in some high-end plus-size fashion. My mission? Scoring designer outfits that would turn heads at New York Fashion Week.
As I started my quest for plus size designer clothing, I quickly realized there weren’t as many options as I had hoped for. Finding designers who cater to plus sizes was like searching for a needle in a haystack, especially when compared to the abundance of choices for straight sizes (ranging from 00 to 12). Shockingly, plus-size clothing brands make up just a mere 19% of the entire fashion market. So, it’s no wonder that tracking down plus-size designer and luxury brands online can feel like a bit of a challenge.
It’s not all doom and gloom, though! I actually found some incredible luxury plus size brands for us to shop!
