I am so excited to finally share this post. This has been a LONG requested post from SO MANY readers and it’s here! So many of my readers have asked me about plus size ethical fashion for bigger women. This is certainly an area that the ethical fashion community needs to improve in, BUT, there are definitely brands out there that are killin’ it in this area! There are quite a few ethical brands that saw this hole in the ethical and fair and sustainable fashion world and stepped in to fill it.
So, I’ve rounded up 17 options for you! I hope this is helpful! And if you want to see more posts like this one, let me know what category round ups you would like to see.
I’ve been a huge fan of prAna for a long time, so I was really excited to see that they are beginning to expand their options for plus sizes. It’s a small section, but it is slowly growing! The more demand there is, the more they will have to grow this section. Right now they have great basics up to size 3x like leggings, jeans, pants, and basic tops. (*I do have a coupon code – “GGMS18” which gets you 15% off. This does expire soon!)
ALL THE HEART EYES FOR EILEEN FISHER. She is the OG of ethical fashion and caters to women of all shapes and sizes. I ADORE her clothing – it is made to LAST. For real. And it’s beautiful and classic and will be trendy for years to come.
My girl Emily at The Flourish Market is ALL about inclusivity. She has been working so hard to find some amazing options for women who are plus sized and she’s got some ADORABLE stuff in the shop right now. Tops, dresses, and leggings. I know she has a heart for this and is looking to carry more! Just let her know what you’d love to see! She’s on Instagram – @theflourishmarket. OH, and you can use my coupon code “stillbeingmolly” for FREE SHIPPING!! YAS!
Looooove Reformation. Classic + trendy pieces… they are expanding their plus options and I love what I see so far!! This green Lucy dress is stunning and would be beautiful for summer!
This is a new discovery for me and Karen Kane’s clothing is AMAZING!! So many trendy pieces, a lot of adorable cuts, great work options, girl’s night out options. I. Am. A. Fan. There’s this ruffle hem top that I am LOVING and gorgeous floral pieces. Gimme!!!!
100% made in the USA, Igigi’s main focus is made-to-order styles, but they do carry some in-stock items. They really want to make sure you LOVE what you get and they have a “love it” guarantee!
I recently found Alice Alexander on Instagram and I’m SUPER impressed with them! Their clothing is gorgeous, size inclusive, well-made, ethically and sustainably made in Philadelphia, and it’s just EVERYTHING. They are small and so they don’t have a TON of options, but I hope to see them grow because they have so much potential!
I looooooove Hackwith Design House and was so pleased when they launched their plus size line. They carry such classic, timeless pieces that it makes it worth the investment. These are pieces that are well made and will last you for YEARS to come! Gorgeous, clean lines. So flattering. LOVE.
I love Grace & Lace and they have started to expand their options into the plus size category! Starting small, but growing! So many great pieces that are affordable and trendy.
Hope & Harvest has GORGEOUS options for women and I love their cardigans, dresses, and knitwear. Their sizing is a little confusing – so BE SURE TO CHECK THE SIZE CHART – but they carry up to US size 22. But again, check the size chart.
Designed and made in the UK (and they ship worldwide!), Pink Clove is great for affordable, on-trend pieces!! I love that they have options for work or play! SO MANY cute dresses and trendy tops and all VERY affordable!
Mei Smith is SLAYING the ethical fashion for women who are plus size game. SLAYING. Tops, bottoms, dresses… all on-trend, but still classic. Clothing MADE for women who are plus size and really taking your shape into consideration. BIG FAN, HERE!
If you are into the earth, relaxed, hippie, natural look… Gaia Conceptions is your JAM. Their clothing is SO comfortable, handmade TO ORDER (it’s all made custom!!!!) here in North Carolina, and made with sustainable natural fibers and plant-based dyes. Gaia is your jam if you are about style AND comfort!
This is another UK brand that is KILLIN’ IT!! Ethical, stylish, ships worldwide… goodness I am in love. So many great options from Seasalt Cornwall! Outwear, dresses… this brand has a similar feel to Vineyard Vines!
Diane Kennedy uses so many sustainable fibers, natural dyes, and really focuses on classic cuts and colors! Love their options – especially for work wear and more “mature” women. 🙂
I discovered this brand, Smart Glamour, a few months ago and they are still small, but they have such an awesome mission to make women of all shapes and sizes feel BEAUTIFUL. They specialize in special occasion dresses, but they also carry casual and work wear! The price points are also EXTREMELY affordable and very accessible!
This is an older and more established brand, On the Plus Side, that is ethically and sustainably producing GORGEOUS plus size women’s fashion. I love their wide range of options from tops, pants, dresses, and even intimates and coats.
I hope this plus size ethical fashion post was helpful and I hope you found some new options! Let me know in the comments which one is your favorite!
