Rock that body.
Our fatphobic culture is out of control. Ever since society decided to define ‘plus size’ as anything from a size 6 upwards, shopping has become a depressing affair for most of us. It’s great that there are so many options for pin-thin girls, and if you’re naturally tiny you should definitely flaunt it. But for the rest of us (read: those with thighs that will never fit into size zero skinny jeans, no matter how many celery sticks we consume or how much CrossFit we do), it’s becoming increasingly frustrating to find stores with on-trend clothes that show off our curvy bods.
Thankfully, a few online retailers have taken note. These seven stores have clothes for every shape and size – and they are hot AF. Warning: browsing any of the following sites will result in a call from your credit card company to flag unusual activity…
ASOS uses real curvy girls (read: not catwalk models) to model its plus-size range so you get a really good idea of how particular pieces will look on you if you sport a curvier frame. Check out ASOS’ latest range here.
Boohoo ships globally, its sizes are usually pretty reliable, and it has a collection of clothing, ranging from casual to formal, at really reasonable prices. Check out Boohoo’s latest range here.
3. Forever 21
Forever 21 ships to heaps of countries, its models are genuinely curvier girls and its clothes are really cute and quite cheap. Better still, it also sells swimwear and activewear for curvy girls. Hoorah! Check out Forever 21’s latest range here.

7. City Chic
City Chic ships globally and is exclusively plus-size (from size 10 to 20) with a focus on cute party dresses and sexy outfits to hit the town in.
