What Plus-Size Clothing Actually Looks Like On A Plus-Size Women

It's not a secret that plus size women are beautiful.

Matter fact all women are beautiful. Unfortunately, when it comes to selling plus size clothing for women [especially online] it can be a struggle. A lot of the models depicted in the images online modeling the pieces being sold are not true to size plus size women and that gives a false depiction of the plus size community. The way I see it is, if you're going to be selling a brand to a specific community, make sure that the depiction of the brand caters to the specific community. Plus size clothing should be modeled by actual plus size models and nothing less than that.
Women have ordered clothing from online stores expecting it to look the exact way it did on the model, but that never happens to be the case because at the end of the day, the person modeling the item of clothing wasn't plus size. The video above shows examples of three women trying on different plus size pieces giving you a visual of how plus size pieces actually fit on real life plus size women. Keep scrolling to see what keeping it real and not sugar coating beauty from the eye of America's standards looks like.

a lot of people have those issues. trust me, you're not the only one, but I can only imagine those Miami shops. that's why I feel shopping online is your better bet. even if it doesn't fit, you can always return...most of the time @Luci546

That is how I feel shopping, I have different sizes going on everywhere and it's all hard to find brand consistency. I been measured, my chest and back side says one thing and everything says something else. Sadly I'm one of those return people because I just can't get the right fit. Especially being only 5'4 that makes it worst

I agree clothes should be made in all sizes and available right along side all the other clothes. I don't need a special store just for my size or a separate section in the store just for my size. I'm not ashamed of a number so why are clothing companies? I'm size 15 so I can find stuff in-store but most of the time the FIT isn't ever quite right. Most of the time I do take multiple sizes in the fitting room because I know I'll need to compare. They need to realize not everyone is or even wants to be a size 2.
