10 Plus Size Brands That You Should Check Out Right Now
The one question I most commonly get asked in real life and online is – “Where do you buy your clothes from?” Considering the significant shortage of plus size clothing, this query doesn’t surprise me at all. Yes, plus size fashion has been growing in India and is not as scarce as it used to be till a few years ago, however, it is often quite hit and miss. On rare occasions, you find a brand that does make size-inclusive clothes above size 18, chances are, the fit would be flawed, or the design would be bland and boring. And if you do manage to find something that looks good and fits great, the pricing would be expensive and way out of your budget.
To make your shopping experience smooth and fruitful, we decided to find plus size fashion brands that offer accessible size ranges, trendy designs, versatile silhouettes, and not over the top price points. Scroll down for the ten best brands for curvy and plus-size clothing in India.
