ASOS launches plus-size collection

Asos flower and spot dress BIG

ASOS.COM has launched a new plus-size clothing range today. The Curve Collection caters for sizes 20-26 (the mainline ASOS range already goes up to size 18) and, as well as covering basic wardrobe essentials, it has some really gorgeous trend-led pieces.

The range includes knitwear, tailoring, jersey and outerwear. Many of the designs have been taken from the own-label collection but adapted to fit a curvier figure. ASOS plans to update the collection every season and expand for Autumn/Winter 2010.

Highlights include a printed dress, which somehow manages to successfully mix Luella-style polka dots with a bright floral motif, and a black leather biker jacket, complete with studs and zips. The only lowlight we can spot is the legging/skirt one-piece: practical, no doubt, for hiding wobbly bits but all too reminiscent of our formative teenage years (circa 1997) spent working weekends at Topshop when trouser/skirt combos were all the rage.
