You’ve heard of ASOS and The Iconic, but did you know that we have some great options right here in Australia? Owned and operated by, predominately, Australian women? Well, let me blow your mind with these online retailers that specialise (or in some way feature) plus size clothing from multiple brands. This post is going to make your shopping experience simple and way more fun.
Filter by size, come to Suger. 😛
Also important to note that most of these retailers sell a range of Australian owned brands (and some international ones) so we are doing our bit to support the Australian Plus Size Fashion market. And let me tell you, from the conversations I’ve had, it’s hard going out there for brands and businesses like these. The Australian market is tough from the cost of making and importing right down to the customer’s expectations. We need to do what we can to support where we can. Don’t you think?
Australian Online Plus Size Retailers
Storming onto the scene a few years ago, I’m sure most of you will know about Hear Us Roar. Always adding new brands, with a focus on Australian designers and on-trend fashion pieces for the plus-size customer. Recently I picked up some slides, a hat and a new skirt from there in the one shop; can’t argue with that for range. In my opinion, Hear Us Roar is one of the fastest-growing sites of this kind in Australia, make it your first stop next time you shop, and I know you won’t be disappointed.
This online retailer was started by a fellow blogger who saw a gap in the market and went for it. Located in Sydney, Pip has put her heart and soul into this website, and her butt on the line. A great one-stop-shop for your Sonsee products, Capriosca swimwear and a range of local and imported fashion pieces. If you saw my Maxi Dresses post, the Kiyona brand ones I’m wearing came from this site. It is a beautifully pulled together range that deserves our support.
This website came up when I asked a little while ago for recommendations for plus-size retailers. In all honesty, I’d never heard of it, so I clicked over to the site and WOW. Immediately I was taken by the quality of the site and the diverse range of styles. It seems to keep in touch with a variety of trends while maintaining a beautiful line of classics. Well worth a look, I know I’ll be keeping an eye on these styles.
Since I pulled on my first jumpsuit from the Belle bird range at Birdsnest, I’ve been obsessed. The new bird keepers range, available to a size 22, is a stunning collection of beautiful dresses and elegant foundation pieces to get you there. While it doesn’t entirely fit the brief of being a retailer of different brands, I thought it was well worth a mentioned. For work or play, Birdsnest is a pretty great place to start your next wardrobe update.
I first met Kim through this blog, so when she partnered up with Peter to curate their site to say I was excited was an understatement. Kim has been working hard ever since to bring a range of pieces to the market, often stepping in front of the camera herself to share the styles on a diverse range of bodies. A true family-owned and operated business supporting Australian brands; we stan.
This online retailer started as a boutique just down the road from me here in south-east Queensland. Stocking a range of easy to wear basics, especially free-sized dresses and tops, built for the Queensland climate and the fashionistas that live here. From workday and weekday basics to those special occasions, they’ll have you covered. Make sure you take a look, and if you’re in Brisbane, stop by and check out the store.
Know of any others? Let me know. And as always, if you’re looking for plus size fashion, make sure you check out my online directory for individual brand listings. Happy shopping, team.
