Plus Size Fashion Issues That Still Need To Be Addressed

Inclusivity doesn’t always mean equality.

If you’d told 14-year-old me that 25-year-old me would one day be sitting on a computer discussing plus size fashion as an actual, thriving industry as opposed to a teenage dream, I would have told you that 25-year-old me must’ve taken some pretty serious hallucinogens. Ten years ago, plus size brands certainly existed — but they didn’t exist in quite the same way they do now.
