As someone who is plus size I know all to well how hard it has been to find clothes that are stylish and don’t make me look frumpy. In the last few years it feels like the plus size fashion industry has come a long way. No longer are plus size babes limited to two or maybe three places where we can buy clothes. The clothes that are on offer to us now are more stylish and on trend. We still aren’t fully covered when it comes to sizing and ease of access on the High Street, but we are heading in the right direction.
One store that I was surprised to learn had a plus size range, is well known High Street store Debenhams. I’ve shopped there in the past, but believed that their plus sizing was limited to the maximum being a size 20/22. I was pleased to hear that they offer a range of clothing that goes to size 26. I had a look through their site and found some really lovely items that I’ve added to my own wishlist, Including these beauties.
To get the word out that they do a plus size range Debenhams are part of this year’s sponsorship team for The Curve Fashion Festival. A festival that is dedicated to all things plus size, with attendes being able to speak to and buy from a number of retailers, watch catwalks shows featuring some of the best plus size models including the gorgeous Felicity Hayward.
Not only are Debenhams one of the sponsors but they will be offering free bra fitting consultations, showcasing their new lingerie collection on the catwalks and a Q&A with Head Designer on the How To Stage. As well as bring along some special guests who’ll be chatting about confidence and body positivity. This years festival is taking place on 17th November in Liverpool. Tickets for The Curve Fashion Festival are still available you can get yours HERE.
