The Plus Size Conversation

The 'Plus Size' conversation globally in the fashion world is always growing. We are yet to accommodate more sizes and we are yet to incorporate plus size women on bigger platforms and campaigns.

A lot of people see 'Plus Size' as a niche market, but you would find that there are more people who are not a size zero than who actually are.  There are still very few options for women with bigger and curvier bodies. Every day the body positivity topic is expanding and more women are embracing their bodies. Women all over the world are beginning to question many fashion brands (big and small) about the diversity of sizes and styles.

It is not enough to only provide two different styles for a size 48 women where there is 10 for a size 28. All women want to feel included, where no one is left behind, as it really should be. Many brands through time have expressed why the difficulty in providing and producing for plus size women. The answers are always business related more than the desire to use their own power in changing and growing the image of the woman's body and the way it needs to be dressed. After all women are the clients.

Fashion loves confidence more than the hanger of bodies wearing a businessman's expensive imagination. That has been the most beautiful trait of fashion – it is for everyone. If you wear clothes then you are part of it – rich, poor, young or old there are styles for everyone but not equal options.

In Botswana there are various body types, from plus size to supper skinny. What you need to know is how to dress it and not change your body. Wear what makes you happy and feel comfortable, no matter the occasion or season. Anything and everything is worn best with a smile.
