While we could argue there's still a lot of work to do to make our industry more size inclusive, plus size clothing brands have come a long way. More and more plus size clothing brands are incorporating more inclusive sizes onto their site. 

Although we can't help but feel as though it's not as inclusive as it can be when items are separated into a 'plus size' tab, on the other hand it does make finding exactly what you're looking for a little bit easier. 

Thanks to models and style icons including Ashley Graham and Paloma Elsesser walking the shows at fashion week, we're slowly seeing designers create fashion-forward styles that aren't just catered towards size 6-8 women. Rihanna's Savage x Fenty shows prove that clothes can look beautiful on all sizes, shapes and ages.

Over on the high-street, there are plenty of plus size clothing brands offering trend-led choices to their customers without breaking the bank. 

What are the best plus size brands?

While Simply Be and Evans will always be plus size staples, there are dozens more brands you can shop online, specialising in anything from dresses to shoes and lingerie. Here's a round-up of some of our favourite plus size clothing brands. 

1. Dia & Co

Nested within Dia & Co's site is 11 Honoré, offering luxury brands designed for women sizes 12 to 26. Think of Dia & Co and 11 Honoré as your one-stop shopping destination if you want to invest in designer labels including Badgley Mischka, Carolina Herrera and Christopher Kane. Dia & Co was founded by Nadia after struggling to find clothes to fit her, eight years later it's one of the best plus size clothing destinations.

2. Reformation Extended Sizes

Savage x Fenty by Rihanna celebrates fearlessness, confidence and inclusivity. You will not find a single boring lingerie piece on there. Plus, if you're searching for the best plus size clothing brands for activewear, Savage goes up to a size 22. 

7. Simply Be

Simply Be has been ahead of the plus size fashion curve for quite a while, and is one of the brands with the most styles to shop from (1,000s of products last time we checked). Shop party dresses, checked blazers and more in sizes 12–32.

8. New Look Plus Size

New Look's sizing goes up to a UK32 on most of its styles, which means you can shop the same trendy pieces as everyone else rather than having to go to a different section. But where New Look really wins is the wide fit shoes, which can be hard to come by elsewhere.

9. Marks & Spencer

We're a little obsessed with M&S's Curve collection, which includes trend-led pieces in sizes 18-32, carefully tailored as opposed to simply made bigger.
