My inbox was alive with the sound of spring/summer plus size fashion earlier last month. It was time and the brands were ready for us with some killer collections, lots of colour and gorgeous fabric. I was REALLY excited to see the last of the brands go public with their looks last week so I could do a round-up for you all. It’s an exciting time for the plus size customer in Australia with a lot of major retailers stepping up their game and the little guys doing what they do best and bringing ALL THE AWESOME.

Today I’m sharing three of the brands that I have tended to use as my go to suppliers for my steal her style post {the shopping board} and for my personal shopping purchases. I need less and less to keep my wardrobe ticking over {even with the outfit heavy posting schedule}. I have a really good base and thanks to brands I work with my wardrobe gets a new season boost no and again. But that doesn’t mean I don’t put my own money on the line too. I do. But the heavy lifting has been done in my wardrobe so it doesn’t take much.

Buuuuuut when not one but THREE amazing lookbooks dropped into my lap I knew it was time to cash in my ad account and prepare the budget for a wee bit of a spend up. Given my wish list is a mile long it’s a good thing it’s been a while since I cashed out. Phew. I’m ready, I have my list and since spring/summer is something we get a lot of around here I’m okay with investing in some of these pieces. So if like me you are READY and raring to go the round-up is below. Happy browsing ladies. You’re welcome.

Spring/Summer Plus Size Fashion

17 SUNDAYS

17 Sundays had their Spring/Summer in store earlier in the year {you know, I’ve been wearing it. All. Pretty much}. What they have coming now is their RESORT range. A range of fun and flirty pieces to take you from the beach to the pool to the bar. The range loudly calls to my beach lover self and I was honoured to have the stripe t-shirt dress named after me {middle row, left image}. Exciting! There are a number of items on my wish list and I’m looking forward to working more with the proudly Australian brand in the coming months. Release in early November items will be priced

HARLOW AUSTRALIA

Harlow’s spring/summer range has been in their online store for a little while and it’s exciting to see it. Such beautiful prints and easy to wear designs. There’s one dress I have my eye on. One the brand have been kind enough to send my way {unrelated directly to this post} and I cannot WAIT for it to arrive {middle frame! Squee}. But for me the other show stoppers are the sheer floral maxi dress, the wrap dresses {hello red, roar!} and the printed pants. Even if Queensland has basically shut up shop when it come to pants. Look to this range for sexy, feminine pieces that are bold, look here. Prices ranges from $69.95 to $189.95 and most of the new season items are online now.

The team at Hope & Harvest have EXPLODED their range for the coming Spring/Summer season. Lots more choice, lots of colours and even a print or two.

This is a WOW range with something for everyone in terms of beautiful pieces made to be a wardrobe stand out from now long into the future. Prices range from $59 to $249. Most items are available now.
