My wish list of things that I believe plus sized retailers need to sort.
1 – Use cooler fabrics for your garments nylon is so hot.
2 – Bear in mind that we are not all hour glass figured ladies, for an apple or pear shape having an elasticated gathered waist just cuts us in half and makes us look fatter.
3 – Stop with the celebrity collections they look so cheap.
4 – Try using a range of models so we can actually see what the garments look like on a size 20 upwards.
5 – Have more options re garments with sleeves, sleeveless is fine but in summer I don’t want to have to wear a hot cardi/shrug especially when I am abroad on hols.
6 – Also dresses with huge gathered skirts only look good on super slender peeps, I have tried many and just look pregnant in them.
7 – Stop elasticating waists on trousers – we are not that fat you know that we cant do up a button and zip!
8 – Stop mimicking slender fashion and use original and creative ideas to create plus fashion that fits our plus sized bodies.
9 – Elasticating below the bust as a sort of waist line effect makes a lot of people look pregnant. Fine if you are preggies but not good if you are not and plus sized.
10 – Why are there such restricted options for Tall people – do they deserve to have trousers that finish around their shins? Have they done something wrong to deserve this injustice?
11 – Why are there such restricted options for petite people – the amount of issues I see where an item is just too long and hems and sleeves have to be taken up?
12 – Why is there no standardization between sizes in one shop I’m a 20 another an 18 etc its so annoying.?
13 – If you are happy enough to have a plus sized collection on your website retailers at least be decent enough to put it into your shops as well !
