All roads lead to online fashion when it comes to shopping for the curvier women. Here’s the Melan Magazine roundup of where to shop for plus-size fashion right now.

It’s not today that the mainstream fashion industry has been peddling unrealistic beauty standards resulting in women being forced to conform and fit into socially constructed ideals. Add to that, the scenario of constantly changing trends on fashion runways, billboards and magazine spreads, it’s no wonder that the average woman struggles to keep up with what’s hot right now.

As a result, many women struggle with their body image and self-confidence, especially when the lack of diversity in fashion makes it extremely challenging to shop on the high-street for something to suit every skin-tone or size. However, in recent years, the body positivity movement has led calls for increased diversity in fashion and beauty, ensuring retailers are finally starting to step their game up and create collections that are more representative of wider society including plus-size clothing.

Plus size fashion

While most brick-and-motor stores still don’t carry a wide range of sizes, e-commerce sites such as ASOS and Simply Be are breaking barriers by providing women with the option to shop for stylish plus-size fashion online. As a result, other retailers have started to follow suit by adding plus-size collections to their online offering.

If you want to upgrade your plus-size fashion wardrobe, here’s our roundup of the best plus-sized fashion sites to shop now!
