Plus Size and Proud

Pick up any fashion magazine and you’ll find advice on “flattering” styles. Big derriere? Avoid back pockets. Not wasp-waisted? Stay away from horizontal stripes. Arms less than sculpted? Long sleeves are your friend.

A growing number of women are refusing to anguish over not being a size 2, and they’ve abandoned these commandments of “flattering” fashion. In fact, a new generation of body-positive fashionistas have taken to blogs and social media to pose in their favorite outfits, promote acceptance of body diversity, and show that people of any size can wear trendy threads; on Tumblr, these blogs are commonly known as “fatshion.” Gabi Gregg sums it up on her blog GabiFresh: “Women can look great regardless of their weight, and they deserve to feel great too. I am all for people striving to be happy, healthy, and comfortable in their skin.”

The blogger and fashion personality GabiFresh.

These body-positive blogs encourage sartorial self-expression and are populated with photos of confident, curvy women in neon colors, cropped bustiers, and stripes both vertical and horizontal. Though the average woman in the US wears a size 14, finding fashion-forward pieces in sizes 10 and up can be a challenge. Gabi says that shopping online provides her with the greatest selection of plus-sized clothing, and she especially appreciates Etsy’s offerings. “I love that you can find one-of-a-kind items, or get pieces custom made; that’s such a big deal when you’re sized out of stores.”

An Etsy shop owner who’s helped Gabi on her fashion quest is Diane-Marie Brache Smith of Miss Brache. She’s made about 3,000 dresses in the past five years, but started thinking about plus-sized clothing years before, when shopping with a “curvy bestie” for lingerie. “She was going on her first weekend getaway with a boyfriend and couldn’t find a single bra that fit and was majorly bummed,” remembers Diane. “It left me wondering why on earth couldn’t she find something that wasn’t matronly to wear. I told myself I would never let that happen if I got to design clothes someday.”

Diane emphasizes that no matter one’s weight, garment fit is key and accurate body measurements are far more important than the size you think you should wear. “Many women hate the numbers they get when they take their measurements,” says Diane. “But stuffing yourself into a size that is smaller just so you can say it’s a size-whatever is dumb and not comfortable — everything starts pinching, and riding and bunching up. Forget sizes and shop by fit!”

Designing for curvy women isn’t all that different from creating clothing for “straight-sized” customers. “You might need to provide more support in the bust area or a slightly longer hem,” says Tennille McMillan of naKiMuli. “But I really don’t alter my designs too much. I design for the girl who is not afraid to march to the beat of her own drum, and that crosses all shapes and sizes.” Emily and Amanda, who include plus-sized clothing in their shop Ureshi, add, “We think in terms of silhouette and proportion. Some part of an outfit should be snug to the body, otherwise the eye has nowhere to land.”

Etsy shop owners say their curvy customers are definitely not shrinking violets. “We find that our plus-sized girls are more adventurous, style-wise, than customers who buy our medium and small sizes,” say Emily and Amanda. Tenille echoes that sentiment: “My customers are bold, creative, and unique. They love colors, prints, and interesting silhouettes and are not afraid to be noticed.” She appreciates that her customers provide feedback, helping her perfect her plus-sized offerings.

This exchange with designers is something customer Gabi Gregg enjoys as well. “I love Etsy because people are so willing to do custom sizing, which is amazing. I always encourage people to message an Etsy shop owner if they don’t offer your size and ask to see if they’re willing to make you a custom piece. In my experience, people are happy to.”

Communicating about fit and style is especially important when it comes to clothing for special occasions — proms, graduations, and weddings. Sharon Seleb, a former bridal consultant in Chicago, got tired of telling brides-to-be, “You’re going to have to hold this gown up and use your imagination, because we don’t have it in your size” and started Real Size Bride. “More and more women are proud of their curves, and we’re trying to change the thinking that all plus-size bridal gowns need to be A-line, empire waist, and look like a curtain. We offer shorter styles, plunging sweetheart necklines and mermaid cuts to flaunt curves, not hide them.”

Designers making clothes for curvy women see themselves on something of a mission. “Victoria’s Secret models are gorgeous, but it’s unrealistic to think everyone can look like that,” Sharon says. “We are doing our part to expand the fashion industry’s archaic view of what is beautiful.”

And changing those views means challenging fashion’s rules about what’s “flattering.” Says Diane of Miss Brache, “Wear what makes you happy and what you are comfortable in. You shine when you’re wearing a print, color, or design you adore.”

    Awesome article! Our shop, WetDesert, showcases small size like 0-2 and plus-sizes. This happened simply because my best friend and I run the shop together and those are the sizes that we wear. I love this approach because it gets rid of the dreaded "you can't shop here" feeling. People are all shapes and sizes so stores should cater to that truth.

    Nicely done! Just because I'm a large woman doesn't mean that I have to give up colors and wear black all the time. I take pride in dressing well. And I agree that we spend more -- once we find something that fits and looks good we are gonna buy it in several colors!

    Great Article, shopping for plus sizes is always challenging! I hope more Etsy designers will consider making larger sizes, and shooting photos using curvy models. Many times I've seen a dress or top that isn't available in my size, no larger than medium or large.

    Hallelujah! Finally clothes that don't look like 'old lady' clothes just because we are larger and possibly petite. I hate buying clothes because they all have elastic waist and button up shirts.

    I'm so glad to see this!! I'm a size 14 and I don't think I'm a big person at all. Not everyone is a 0 -2 and really I like my curves!!! So thank you for showing that everyone should feel comfortable in their on skin!!!

  • PinesVintageClothing

    Pine from GoodOldVintageOnline said 6 years ago

    Great post! I have found in my retail store that far too much emphasis is placed on tag size. Tag sizes vary from store to store and most definitely from decade to decade. It's all about the fit and looking and feeling good. I have two skirts I plan on hanging on the wall at my store. One is size 0, one is size 8 and they are exactly the same measurements! Any size is a good size to be. The number is an illusion. These women look amazing no matter the tag size. Confidence is always the best accessory!

  • shardsofelegance

    Lindsay Gehring from shardsofelegance said 6 years ago

    Yay! I often find that the other sellers here on Etsy don't make clothes big enough for me, but I'm not shy about asking them if they'll do a custom item. (I'm not curvy though --- just big).

  • cagedpeople

    Dani K from DisownedClothingCo said 6 years ago

    As much as I think it is a beautiful thing to love our bodies just as we are and just as nature intended, I also think that there is a fine line to walk between celebrating natural human bodies and beauty, and glorifying a culture of unhealthy lifestyles and obesity. I believe that as long as you live a healthy life, and your body is the best that it can be from the inside out, because you take care of it, size doesn't matter. But let's not run around saying "hey, I'm beautiful even though I live on cheeseburgers and soda!" Because even if you are tiny, that kind of lifestyle is not taking care of yourself, and that's not beautiful.

    Nice article! I make all my hats for adults in 4 different sizes, because there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to hats, despite how many times you see it used!! A lot of my customers, especially taller and bigger guys, really appreciate to finally get a hat that is comfy and slouchy for them, tired of trying on hats in department stores that are much too tight for their large heads.

  • studiorandom

    Dana Seilhan from studiorandom said 6 years ago

    I'm surprised but pleased that only one commenter here has felt the need to lecture all the fat women as to when it will be OK for us to feel pretty again. For the record, there are slender people out there living on things like cheeseburger-and-soda or Cheetos-and-Mountain-Dew. No one notices, because they're not fat. I know. I was one of them. My weight didn't change for the worse til my hormone balance did--first going on the pill at 21, then going through two pregnancies (almost nine years apart, but still). I may or may not have been able to mitigate the weight gain with good diet; I know I've met several vegetarians and vegans by now who are also overweight. These days I skip the sugar and the buns and just eat the cheeseburger (among other things, and yes, I do eat vegetables), I've lost some weight, and my labs are normal and I feel better. The only reason I don't dress to the nines now, while I'm still overweight, is I don't have the money. I think that if you wait til your habits are perfect to decide you are worth it to feel and look beautiful, you will live in sackcloth and ashes for the rest of your life. Don't let someone else's "tough love" opinions scare you away from enjoying your life. If they think they have to hurt you, they don't love you.

    Great to see! I am only 4 feet 11 inches tall and was always sent to the kids department for clothes as a teenager and adult, until somebody wised up that not everyone is the same size. When you look good, you feel good! Everyone should have the same opportunity to feel stylish no matter how big, small, tall they are.

    Well done! I love all the shops featured here.. great photography and gorgeous models. I don't agree with some of the comments calling the models "real" women because.. hey - were all real no matter what size we are! The point is, Etsy is a great place to find just what you're looking for - in just the right size.

    Love this! I used to work in the plus size section at Macy's and this is definitely an under appreciated market. These women love to shop just like the size 0 to 2's if not even more. Glad to there are more variety of styles of clothes for plus size women. Great feature.

    What a great article, full of “need to know” info and insight. As two very busty, Vintage-obsessed women, my daughter & I are well aware of the frustration of searching thru mountains of Vintage garments to find something that fits. So when we decided to share our passion for Vintage clothing with the world, we made a heartfelt promise. To dig a little deeper, and search a little longer, so ALL of our Clients would get to experience the fabulousness. We carry a huge variety of colors, textiles, shapes, styles AND sizes. Response has been amazing! We’ve expanded our vision & are now in the process of design & production of “Curvy Plus Vintage” ---a line of clothing inspired by Vintage Design. True Vintage clothing typically runs very small, but the shapes & styles are typically very flattering. So it’s a natural progression to create modern Vintage! THANKS ETSY for helping to make dreams come true... Pam ♥

    I really appreciate seeing this article -- as a designer, creating beautiful pieces that allow people to feel good about themselves and how they look is a foundational principle of my business. People of all sizes appreciate things that fit, and I hope more designers are inspired to create things that fit every-body, not just the sizes that mainstream shops cater to, in some average-that-fits-no-one proportions. Etsy provides us with a great opportunity for distinguishing our brand and offerings from what the mainstream offers -- let's take advantage of it!

  • MollyRoseBalms

    Molly Levine from MollyRoseBalms said 6 years ago

    Great article! Though I have to say, I still find plus sized clothing EXTREMELY hard to find on Etsy. Most "plus-size" clothing sellers have a 0-20 range, usually with the 20 being an enlarged version of the smaller sizes with no changes to the cut (which is NOT what real plus-size means), or it's totally shapeless and poncho-y. Hopefully some great designers will be inspired by this article!

  • richdon1

    Rich and Dona from TheCottageMouse said 6 years ago

    Love featuring all size women on Etsy. I am a size 2, very under weight and I struggle with weight gain. But you never see that on Dr. Oz or Oprah. All women have issues, not only heavy ones. I am just sick of hearing about over weight women. What about the under weight people out there who can not gain weight.

  • TropicArts

    Patricia from TropicArts said 6 years ago

    Thank you for this article! I'm plus size and it was really nice to see the comments from plus-size clothiers here on Etsy and go check out shops. Dona, I know what you mean.. I helped a friend of mine not too long ago find clothes for her tiny size 0 frame. She is not even underweight, just a small woman (under 5'), and it was a real hassle to find adult clothing that hugged her frame and emphasized that she was a woman, not a child. But unlike shopping for plus sizes, most stores did carry her size, even if they were few and far between. If it helps you- her clothes are easier to find on the sale racks!

    It's so exciting to see designers on Etsy selling plus size. I'm tired of plus size stores closing up and expecting plus size customer to buy online. We can't try the items on and if they don't work out, we have to mail the items back, sometimes at our own cost. There is such a hard push against making clothes for plus size but I'll tell ya'll something VERY IMPORTANT to know: WE PLUS SIZE FOLKS NEED TO DRESS AND IF WE CAN'T FIND WHAT WE NEED TO PURCHASE, WE WILL GO NAKED OR WEAR SWEATS EVERYWHERE!!

  • sabrosavintage

    Carrie Williams from sabrosavintage said 6 years ago

    I just thought today (as I have many days) that I wish etsy would feature more plus sizes on the site. BAM!! Awesome. Some of my faves are included. I have recently (again, TODAY!) decided to focus all my energy on growing my vintage business, and one of the main features will be the unleashing possibly of one of the largest collections of larger size vintage clothing (modern 12-26) in the world. I've been collecting for over ten years, and I can't wait to showcase the amazing plus size fashions of the past that fit in so well with modern style. I look forward to being another quality option for my fellow fatshionistas to turn to online, and I love seeing more and more sellers on etsy that cater to a variety of sizes.

    Thank Etsy for all of these plus size designers and the push for stores to stop trying to force us to shop online only by closing their stores, and trying to shame us into fighting our weight. Not everybody is fat because they eat McDonalds and watch Honey boo boo crap on tv. And I'll tell y'all something else very important: If we can't find something to wear, we'll just go naked. Then you'll be sorry!! Thank you for the wonderful article!!

    TheFuzzyPineapple from TheFuzzyPineapple said 6 years ago

    Love this article! From my own experience, I didn't want to get and look healthier until after I was already comfortable in my own curvy girl skin. Having a larger selection of affordable plus size clothing options allowed me to accept myself as beautiful. Although plus size clothing also glorifies unhealthy weights, I also think that it helps people to at least make the first step to becoming healthier by allowing us to see that we are already beautiful; healthier lifestyles no longer becomes a hardship for superficial reasons but instead a therapy that encourages happier lives, self worth, and identity. Plus size clothing takes away the drama of proving to the world that you are trying to become healthier for health's sake and not for the accepted standard of beauty. ♥

  • flauntdesignsjewelry

    Lin from FlauntDesignsJewelry said 6 years ago

    Isn't it funny that if you look back through history and art, a beautiful woman in a Reubens painting is softly, vivaciously curved, and a woman with a healthy, strong, curvy body was considered a sign that the family were fortunate to have money to eat, whereas these days everything has been turned on its head and the very lean silhouette is glorified in the media. Reubens would not be happy - and the majority of us just aren't built that way! I'm a 5' 8" curvy size 10 and one of my YOUNG size 4 colleagues the other day - not knowing my size - was telling a patient that she thought size 10 was fat, lazy and grotesque, and now considered plus size. WHAT?!! Thank you for bucking the trend and sharing gorgeous clothes that give us a choice, no matter what our size or shape.

    CreativeManifesters from JSSShepherd said 6 years ago

    Completely agree with the comment about petite clothes looking "old lady-ish". Two of the three of us are short and curvy, and we have a heck of a time finding clothes that look younger than 60 (unless their for teenie-bopper stick figures). The same goes for shoes! What is with this trend of super narrow, toe-pincher shoes? OK, so if your going for "fashion" and you choose high heels with pointy toes that's one thing (you've already decided to torture yourself by wearing pumps in the first place) but how 'bout some size 8 tennis shoes and loafers/clogs/etc. with a little wiggle room for your toes? they don't have to be longer, just a little wider. Custom shoes, like custom clothes are awesome! Etsy is truly the best! :- )

    I also think this sort of article shows that ETSY IS LISTENING to the pulse of it's shop owners and customers, who are a powerful & talented group, indeed. Etsy needs to continue to keep their ear to the ground...one of many areas of improvement & growth potential available to them......may I also suggest they work on weeding out the shops that are not real "shops", but instead ghost shops for mass produced, rock-bottom discounted-price merchandise that is NOT hand-made NOR Vintage NOR made in properly collective settings--all of which are NOT allowed on this site, yet continue to proliferate wildly, taking business away from passionate artisans! I applaud Etsy for the gains it is making, but please don't lose sight of the original Etsy vision. THANK YOU! Pam ♥

    soeur6180 from sometimesanotion said 6 years ago

    So nice to see an article about plus sizes! Joining in with the woman who worked at Macy's in their plus size department - YES, we will spend more than our straight sized counterparts once we find something worth buying! I love dressing in beautiful clothes. Its very much an untapped market right now. Lots of opportunity! My one piece of advice is to sellers who list Plus Size as a searchable term but their clothing only goes up to XL! XL is NOT plus sized! It makes me not buy from you at all, even if you might make me something custom sized. It also clogs up my search list with unbuyable merchandise, which is annoying. Anyone know any other great plus size Etsy shops? I'd love to support them!

    Angsting about eating is so the wrong way to go. Under eating, over eating, eat this, don't eat that. Mirror mirror on the wall please tell me what i am so desperate to know..... Freedom from anxiety and a moderate balance in ones habits are the key to being healthy in mind and body and the result is a natural feel-good smile without which any attempt at an 'appearance of beauty' is like whistling in the wind no matter what size you wear. First beauty, then of course it would be nice to find some suitable clothing.

  • irinisklavounou

    irini from IrinisWorld said 6 years ago

    Off the subject, i know but i will take the opportunity to agree with MsBusyBoss about the proliferation of 'pretend artisans'. Search 'Mens engagement rings' and you will get reams of catalogue stuff that is quite clearly pushing the rules and results in genuine artisans getting moved down the line and losing focus of attention. It is like finding yourself geting lost in the wrong shop window. Some seo savvy 'sellers' take up whole pages and are clearly not what a discerning customer wants to trawl through to find a genuine piece of creative work. If Etsy wants to tolerate that there should be some kind of categorisation like Ebay has for 'auction or buy it now'. Please excuse me for being off subject.

    Nicely done! Just because I'm a large woman doesn't mean that I have to give up colors and wear black all the time. I take pride in dressing well. And I agree that we spend more -- once we find something that fits and looks good we are gonna buy it in several colors!

    Great article! I really appreciate "promote acceptance of body diversity", that's right, each body is different! Because it's not just size 0-2 or plus size, inside each size there are different shapes! (and sometimes even 0-2 size can't find clothes that fit properly!) thanks! :)

    Lovely article! I'm not the skinnies, though I'm not sure US size-wise where I fall, and I can get my size in Dutch clothing shops. But I don't look like the average advertisement and keep thinking: Yeah, but how would that look on me? That's what I love about Etsy, it has diverse models in all shapes and sizes and ages and colours, even for non-custom-size items, which helps me realise, hey, that lady has a figure similar to mine and she looks amazing, I should totally buy that.

    So great to see such positivity. We need to stop assuming that being 'big' is synonymous with being 'unhealthy'. I know girls who exercise heaps and eat well, but stay upwards of size 12 because that's just their body shape. Not everyone can be petite.

    There is always the assumption that petite people are petite everywhere! Sometimes we are short with curvy hips! Sometimes we are short with with a large bust! What a nightmare trying to find a simple white blouse that will fit in the bust and not be overly long in the arms and torso! The only place left to shop are granny clothing stores .. I can hear the echo of my husband "you look like your wearing my grandmas clothes" Don't even get me started on quality! ONE wash and it is all over! Thank goodness for Etsy Custom!

    I was delighted to read this article. Thank you so much for sharing. Most of the people showing off their curves are young and that is awesome...but I am 57 years old. Too young to be old and too old to be young. I am so very young at heart. I have gained weight due to menopause and had begun to feel I can never look good again..or feel good about myself. I am single, also..and sometimes can't dare to think that a man would be attracted to me anymore. I am so self doubting. But no more!! This article and photos made me realize YES I CAN!! Age and weight have nothing to do with looking awesome and your very best and loving yourself. Thank you so much for this uplifting article. God bless and hope to see you around Etsy.

    My best friend is plus sized, whereas I am very thin with lanky limbs, so when we go shopping together we both have a fair share of problems. The best is when we find a store that carries both of our sizes, but that is few and far between. P.S. Please stop calling larger women "real women", thin people are not unicorns. Thanks :)

  • susio

    Susanne Ryan from TheFeltedGnomeKnows said 6 years ago

    Clothing sizes are the bane of a woman's existence, it is nice to see that Etsy is focusing on the idea of fit. There was a time when a good tailor or seamstress could be found and was willing to make alterations but that is seems to be going the way of the telephone operator, still in existence but limited in what they do. Women come in all shapes and sizes and it is good that the fashion world is starting to acknowledge it. The movement to showcase women with normal BMIs is still controversial among the designers, I for one applaud the variety. Having once been a "thin person" and now being considered a "plus" size I have been on both sides of the of the rack. It is great to have more choices and to feel beautiful again.

    I absolutely adored your post. I spent the vast majority of my life wearing baggy, unflattering clothes simply because I believed there was nothing else for me to wear. When I learned to shop for my body, all of that changed. Finding what flatters your figure is an amazing experience. I love that this experience can be shared with Etsy shop owners and buyers!

    I love that the models in this look gorgeous, including the woman who has cellulite, which is super common in even slender women. As far as the fact that plus sized girls are more willing to try "out there" fashion, my theory has always been that trying to hide is just going to be silly. I'm six feet tall in heels, a ginger, and my butt is wider than the average flat screen monitor. People are going to notice me, and I hope when they do, they say "Dang, she looks good!"

    I absolutely love the fact that the models for the plus-sized clothes for these are actually plus sized and beautiful! In the fashion industry, so many "plus-sized" models are actually a size 6 or 8, which infuriates me. Women can be beautiful no matter what size they are! One of the fabulous things about Etsy is that seller's don't have to feel confined to norms and stereotypes when choosing models, especially when they model their items themselves. Real women rock!

    Fantastic, I often try to carry plus size and larger vintage. I came across a whole collection that I am still listing. I loved seeing the shops, the models were beautiful, and -let's face it every shape is so different it is hard to imagine a standard size. Each body type is so different maybe it is best just to be our own healthy size.

My fashionista days are behind me, but I am happy there are now more options available for women who don't fit the mold.

    Wouldn't be great to shop by body shape as well as by size, to see a model shaped like you wearing the product because one gal's size 22 can be shaped so differently than other's. Any plus size vendors willing to create sections for all us apples and pears?
