While it used to be difficult finding clothes bigger than size XL, that has changed in recent years, with the likes of American supermodel Ashley Graham, comedienne Amy Schumer and Leandra Medine of Man Repeller championing female body-positivity in fashion. Many fashion retailers in Singapore are now catering to fuller figures and offering bigger sizes — a long way from the time when brands only had sizes zero till eight.
From fast fashion giants to novelty boutiques and homegrown labels, here are some places you can shop for plus-sized fashion in Singapore. Keep calm and love your curves.
