20 Truly Inclusive Plus-Size Clothing Brands

This post may contain affiliate links, which allow us to earn commissions on products we recommend. All opinions are our own.

In a world where clothing companies constantly claim to be inclusive, it can be hard to tell what is actually inclusive, especially if you don’t wear plus sizes yourself.

Full clothing inclusivity requires carrying up to at least a 12X/size 40 U.S., ideally with a custom sizing option. (And, even more ideally, with options for people who are short, tall or have sensory/mobility needs.) Only a few brands currently meet this standard.

When apparel brands are misleading about their inclusivity, it matters for a few important reasons:

πŸ§₯ It increases weight stigma by convincing thin folks that fat folks have plenty of clothing options and don’t need more

πŸ§₯ It cynically throws fat folks under the bus in pursuit of profit

πŸ§₯ It puts fat folks in the position of constantly having to say “hey, that’s not actually true” and makes us look mean and ungrateful

πŸ§₯ It erases fat folks by teaching thin folks that clothing sizes larger than the ones that company carries just don’t exist

πŸ§₯ It’s a really crappy, gaslighting, dishonest thing to do

πŸ§₯ When you promote companies as “inclusive” that aren’t, you actively make the world a worse place

That means brands that ARE fully inclusive are extra worthy of being celebrated!

Here are 20 plus-size apparel brands that are fully inclusive, from clothing to lingerie to shoes. For fat folks, we hope this gives you more functional and fashionable clothing options. For thin allies, these are the brands to support!

(All sizes and prices are in U.S. measurements unless otherwise noted.)

SmartGlamour is a body liberation activist’s dream: clothing truly designed for ALL bodies, custom measurements offered, and models in lots of sizes and shapes. Owner Mallorie Dunn says:

“SmartGlamour is for everyone – truly. So why wouldn’t our models represent that visually? On this website, you’ll find people of all shapes, sizes, heights, weights, abilities, ethnicity, age, and identity.

There is not a single person who is not welcome to model for us. We will never crop out our model’s heads, make them model without their glasses, or depict them in a negative, weak, angry, or bored light. Our models are also never, ever photoshopped or airbrushed.”

Whatever your body type, gender identity, or gender expression, Platyfly Studios is here to meet your needs!
