9 Fashion Brands That Check All The Boxes When It Comes To Curvy Fashion5 minute
Ladies, it’s a glorious time to embrace your curves. With the fashion industry finally championing inclusivity and brands realizing that there’s no size when it comes to fashion, you no longer have to put up with button-down shirts that pop open as you walk. Or worse, suffer the disappointment of ordering a size 12 jeans online, only to have to perform gymnastics around the room to fit into them because, in reality, they’re a few sizes smaller. The struggle, we know, is real.
We understand that the best brands for curvy women would be the ones that put thought into their designs and ensure that they have imaginative, creative, and fun options that will flatter you no matter your size. And so we’ve put together a list of our favourite fashion brands for curvy women that won’t disappoint the fashionista in you.
With several stores in over 14 cities across India, accessibility is this plus-size brand’s motto. This puts it at the top of most people’s list of curvy clothing brands. You can grab something from both the ethnic and the western wear sections. In the former, they have a selection of kurtis, churidars, and salwar kurtas. If you’d like to go the Indo-Western route instead, you can pick from their range of palazzos, culottes, and skirts. Western wear offers a range of pretty dresses and tunics along with the usual shorts, jeans, and jackets. There are so many outfit options and things to mix and match that you’re bound to spend a good couple of hours just browsing. And once you’ve picked something out, you can always head on over to their range of accessories to complete the look. This brand truly caters to one and “all.”
You’d be hard-pressed not to find a Westside in every other city or town across India. This, combined with the fact that it’s a go-to for most people when it comes to all things sartorial, makes it the perfect option for plus size shopping as well. To their credit, Westside’s brand Gia rubbishes the notion that curvy fashion needs to be baggy and offers styles in bright colours, bold prints, soft lace, and flattering cuts. Whether it’s an office look, a last-minute date night dress, or your everyday casual outfit - they’ve got everything you’d need. If there’s any brand that understands curvy women's fashion, it’s this one.
