Friends and longtime plus-size fashion authorities Gabi Gregg and Nicolette Mason have launched their own label today—Premme, for sizes 12 to 30—and it looks like pieces are already selling quickly.
At the premiere of Straight/Curve, a documentary about body image and the people working in the fashion industry to change the beauty standard, designer Prabal Gurung shared some fairly distressing but not entirely unexpected news about the way the fashion industry still feels about plus size clothing.
It’s a frustrating fact that, even in this new era of much improved plus-size clothing options, it can still be a struggle to find the right ensemble for a very specific occasion. What, then, do you do if your TV show becomes a runaway success and you are making highly photographed public appearances everywhere from…
Are you looking to introduce some Liz-Taylor-filming-Cleopatra vibes into your summer wardrobe? (Who isn’t?) You’ll be delighted to learn that plus-size brand Eloquii has teamed up with Teresa Maccapani Missoni—granddaughter of Missoni founders Rosita and Ottavio Missoni—for their first designer capsule collection.
Plus-size retailer Lane Bryant is still plugging away at its Labors of Hercules, i.e., their attempts to convince a customer base with increasing options that there’s new life in the old gal. This time, they’ve enlisted designer Prabal Gurung for their next higher-end collaboration.

Lane Bryant continues its long climb back into the hearts of plus-size shoppers with a Glamour collaboration.
Retailers and designers have spent decades dithering over what to call clothing available in bigger sizes. “Chubbies” blessedly died with the 1950s and for now, “plus-size” is the go-to. Largely out of fashion: “Queen size.”
Beth Ditto has rolled out her new line of plus-size clothing, and if I don’t get one of these amazing technicolor stoplight bubble dresses that looks like a control panel from a spaceship in some 1980s sci-fi movie concept artwork, I might literally die.

Shopping as a fat woman is a wholly different experience than five years ago. Once relegated to the Macy's basement, the shitty end of the mall, God forbid the catalogs, now we've got access to neon and sophisticated florals and horizontal stripes and crop tops and two-piece bathing suits.

Yes, before anyone says anything, that is a plus-size model. (I know, I know.) As a fan of Mango's particular type of sexually liberated woman wear, I'm excited. You know what they say: the shorter the skirt, the closer to god.
It's pretty obvious that most mainstream fashion has a plus-size problem.
