5 Trendy Retail Stores Embracing the Body Positive Movement

Fashion

It can be difficult to shop for clothes when the fitting room becomes intimidating. It's always easier knowing what stores cater to the styles and sizes you love before heading into a daunting experience. Here are a few stores that carry plus-size collections to help you find the right trends in so many varying sizes. 

5. Torrid

Fashion for sizes 10 to 30. CEO Liz Munoz mentions that "one size does not fit all. That's why we don't size up from zero or fit on mannequins. We take all our measurements on actual women like you and me". They pride in also having fit tests on real women to get a better feel of what fashion really is to us. 

4. American Eagle

Since 2014, American Eagle committed to not using Photoshop to retouch their images and started the #AerieReal campaign. They offer sizes from 00-18 and XS-XXL with options for regular, short, and long cuts on various products. AEO Inc. mentions that "Our purpose is to show the world that there's REAL power in the optimism of youth". They push for combining fashion with advocating for body positivity, LGTBQ+ rights, and making changes in the world. 

3. H&M

One of the best stores to find basic staple pieces, it's good to know H&M carries bigger sizes for all our curvy, mid-size, not so "modelesque" people. As they are developing into better fashion through sustainable and ethical practices, H&M is a great place to shop right now. From 0-2XL find some comfortable t-shirts, shorts, leggings, all for affordable prices too.

2. Miss Lola

Just 3 days ago, trendy Instagram store Miss Lola added the CURVE collection to their boutique from 0x-3x and so many people were super excited about this. As the store puts out the most trendy and on-brand pieces they will make your Instagram pictures absolutely golden to get on influencer status.

1. Reformation

On the pricier side and also an eco-conscious brand, Reformation Extended Sizes is a thing and their products sell out very quickly so definitely always be on their website checking on the newest available products. From size 14-24 you will find cute summer dresses and dress it up blouses and two-piece sets to feel comfortable in. These are just their first steps to, "make sure women of many shapes and sizes can wear Ref (and look damn good doing it).
