Big Girls breaking the internet should be a warning to brands. If they don’t get on board with inclusive sizing they are missing major market share! Unfortunately, many brands that offer larger sizes due that by using cheap synthetics. We believe sustainable style that includes earth friendly fabrics shouldn’t be limited by size. So we’ve made it easy for you to shop from this list of brands that offer extended sizing without sacrificing eco-friendly values. Prices and fabrics vary due to the difference in items offered by each brand, but you can be sure we’ve chosen brands that are positively affecting both people and planet!
Please note: We’ve kept out a few popular brands and introduced some perhaps new-to-you brands that are making an effort to use planet friendly materials over polyesters and other synthetics.
