Plus-size Designer Clothing
Dresses, Jeans, Separates, and Suits

Designer clothing for women larger than size 12 is still scarce, but options are improving from small, independent boutique designers to upscale, major global fashion week labels. More affordable diffusion labels and capsule collections are most readily available, often focusing on styles appropriate for working women and their lifestyle needs.  Designer shoes, accessories, and hand bags help to create the increasingly high low look appearing in even the most exclusive social circles.  Designer dresses are the item most likely to be available for a wide variety of social occasions from resort to career to special occasions.

 It is advised to always check sizing charts as both extra small and vanity sizing is rampant in this sector of the clothing market,  making sizing especially confusing.
