In an ideal world, we wouldn’t have to talk about ‘curve’ or ‘plus size’ fashion ranges anymore.
Small sizes, in between sizes and large sizes would hang out together on the racks, and the plus size label wouldn’t exist.
But we’re not there yet, which is why women like me, who wear jeans with a bigger number on the tag (or not at all), are allowed to get excited when our favourite brands start making clothes in our sizes.
This week, fashion retailer Cotton On dropped its first dedicated Curve range in sizes 16-24. Previously, the brand sold some of its popular items (that infamous $35 silky slip skirt, anyone?) in extended sizes.
Want some real world fashion inspiration? Mamamia hit the town to interview women about their going out outfits, post continues after video.
But this is different, because never before has a woman who identifies as above a size 16 – the average Australian woman – been able to walk into Cotton On, grab a skirt and have it actually fit their body.
